Her Milkshake Brings All The Boys To The Yard



When we saw this picture of K-dubs favorite German supermodel:

I said, "wow, can you believe she has had 3 kids." KW said, "yeah, well she is German...so that explains it all." *Kdubs is of strong German heritage.

KW then turns to our German derived Min Pin and said, "that is why you look so good after 6 litters, right Penny?"

He cracks me up when he says things like this to Penny, but Miss Penny has always made it her life mission to make me happy.

Erin has talked about what joy her dog brings her, and I have always wanted to write about how happy Penny makes me with her innate joy of life and how that affects me. (her unwillingness to let me capture her vivacity on camera precludes me to write about her charms--thesaurus that, Mirriam Webster)

Penny spends all of her days shaking her tail in a playful manner and running around to make sure I play with her all day long. Only worrying about food and pooping and scratching...

I have always laughed at how Penny makes me happy every morning because I cannot be sad or angry or curse the day of working when a creature wakes up so excited to greet the day. She is so happy to see you...so happy to be awake!!!

I just love how happy she is by nature. I need to be more like my dog...happy at the day, no dreading of pain-in-the-a$$ people at work, no worrying about bills or chores...

Maybe that is what separates us from dogs: opposable thumbs and chores.

Be careful, now. It sounds like you're becoming a Crazy Dog Lady like some us...

Penny's adorable. I take it by your long, happy, and big-word filled post that you're feeling better? No more fever?
Love, Cita

My hubby says our cat needs a job...maybe she and your dog can get one!

I'd rather hang out with Penny than Heidi any day (no offense, K-dubs). Glad you're feeling better, A!

Your dog is adorable!

Dogs are awesome companions, even though Luke is a stinky one right now!

KW is funny on the German thing...he should like the ShamWow then, those commercials always say something like "...better because it is made in Germany."

Yeppers on being more like the pooch...we should print that out and stick it on the desktop!
