|I'm named after my moms' grandmas' chihuahua! The first Penny was teeny tiny. She was so precious! All brown with lighter eyebrows and about a pound and a half, tops, full grown. Grandma loved and doted on that baby. Penny always wore a little brown sweater that grandma made her. One day I asked grandma how she made that tiny knitted sweater. It turned out that when grandmas sweaters wore out, she'd cut off the lower sleeve and hem the end and cut two little holes for the front legs to go out. The wrist part was turned into a turtle neck and that was Pennys outfit, so she always matched grammas sweaters....LOL! I just loved that little Penny, and when my kids were all grown (youngest is 18) mommy wanted her own cute little Penny to love and spoil! She looked for me at the shelters and pound for 3 months before giving up and going to a bad breeder. She didn't know the breeder was bad (she didn't know what to look for at the time) until I was about 4 months old and found out I had a genetic skin condition. Then, at a bit over a year, we found out about my luxating patellas that I recently had surgery to correct. NOW mom knows what to look for in a good breeder! Due to my illnesses and expense, I will probably be an only baby. Which I love!!!! Although I do love visiting with other Chihuahuas!
So, I was named after mommies grandmas Chi Penny, whose bed had her own heating pad! (She loved that heating pad!)
