First, thank you to all who sent me PMs and posted such nice thoughts. This past week has been difficult as most in this position know. I still get up in the middle of the night, come home and still attempt to go through the routines, but then realize that she's not there.
Second here is a story about Penny when I first picked her up from the shelter:
I caged her in a double wide cage. I came home and she'd meet and greet me at the front door. She figured out immediately how to slide the slide lock on the cage and get out. So, I placed a twist tie on the cage door. That evening, I came home, and there she was at the door once again. She had torn the twist tie off, slid the latch and got out. So, the next morning, I put about 6 twist ties on the cage door, all around it. I came home that evening and again, not only was she at the door to greet me, but she took all 6 twist ties and left them at the front door as if to say ...."nice try".
The next day, I put a padlock on the door, and when I came home, she wasn't at the door. Went back to her room and she was in her cage looking at me as if to say, "ok, you got me this time". So I took apart the cage and donated it. She roamed freeley around the house since then.
Although I have literally hundreds of pictures of Penny, most of them are on film that I haven't scanned. So, here are a few digital pictures of her at various times in our lives. The white terrier with the black spots is her "brother" Charlie. Here is the link to the site I've posted the picture:
Thank you one and all once again for all the support you've shared with us.
