Sweet Penny came into our lives sick and pretty desperate. Thankfully she got better but as she did, we saw what she really wanted out of life and began to realize our downtown life was not it. She, more than any dog I have ever seen, longed to run, play, and be with other dogs. She needed their love and affection almost more than she needed ours. No matter the great lengths we went to to give her the life she wanted, at the end of the day she still had to be leashed on walks and live without a canine friend... We carefully and slowly asked specific friends if they knew of anyone that had land and other dogs that would coddle her but also give her room to be Penny. We drove with our dear friend Whitney to rural South Georgia where Penny met two of the sweetest toughest friends yet, Camo and Rocky. Penny affectionately earned the nickname Little-bit (which I like to add 'sassy' in front of), as she held her own with dogs three times her size.
She had the most amazing look of home all over her, and it broke my heart a little as I smiled at her sweet contented face. She and Camo kept kissing each other, yes just licking each other's faces. It was one of the cutest things to see this huge tough dog sitting there kissing Penny as she stretched her little neck to reach his face. It was incredibly comforting to my hurting little heart. Penny was happy.
