After bringing one dog home that didn't fit in (it chased my cats terribly) we decided that with personal and professional obligations, maybe we should just forget adding another animal to the family right now. Especially a dog because, ya know, they're a lot of work.
But then I came across this little black dog that someone had just found and almost hit in the road. They wanted to find it a good home, so I went to look . . .
And Homer seems to like her.
And she's smart, and she listens, and even my husband thinks she's cool (yay!)
He named her Penny.
But I woke up this morning, and I knew I'd let my heart do the talking, and just like that song by Dierks Bentley, I wondered "What was I thinking?"
Because Penny was smelly, and full of fleas, and of indeterminable breed, heritage, or history.
So . . . today she had a bath . . .
And a 7-way vaccination, and a she has a new red collar.
She looks better, don't you think? I guess we'll keep her.
So my question to you is: What combination of breeds do you think Penny is?
