If you had the chance to meet Penny you would see how beautiful and loving she was! She was a remarkable sweet angel that I know God sent to me to teach me the beauty of life and how to love unconditionally. I brought her home on December 24th, 2010 and she left this world on February 21, 2013. I will never forget the day we met, her big brown eyes were sparkling when she saw my sister and I approach her kennel at the animal shelter. She got up and stared at us for a while, was she always waiting to meet us? I had never seen that look from any dog before, she communicated through our souls. Maybe she dreamed that she would see us one day and there we were standing right in front of her. I don’t exactly know how a dogs mind works, but I know that they see humans and the world in a very different way than people do. My sister and I saw her information on the fence that she was 10 years old and had been there for two weeks and unclaimed by anyone. We knew she was the one for us and brought her home! Little did I know that as I got to know her more we both had similar personalities and it just made me smile because I felt she was a mini me! She loved my whole family, but she would follow me the most and would sleep in my room. I guess you could say she choose me to be her mother. I felt my maternal instinct kick in, one of the most beautiful things any girl can exeprience. Wherever I walked she would follow no matter if it was up the stairs or down the stairs. She never asked for much, all she wanted was our love and our kisses 🙂 and of course some food 😉 what surprised me was that before I got her, I always wished to have a dog that would follow me around and then Penny came into our lives and that’s exactly what she did! She came into my life when I needed her the most..she made me laugh and smile with her cute personality and there wasn’t a single day when my family and I wouldn’t talk about her. Ever since she passed away, I have never felt so many emotions in me all at once, call it bitter sweet or the saddest thing I have ever gone through in my life, Penny will always be in my heart and let me tell you she holds a big part of my heart that no one will take. I feel better knowing that she is not in pain anymore and that she is happy running around heaven and knowing her, everyone up there is also falling in love with her too.
I dedicate these song to her:
My Sweet Little Baby Girl,
Perfect, that is the first word that comes to my mind when I think of you. Right from the start I knew that we both found a home for our hearts. You showed me how to love myself by seeing how much you showed your love towards me. The sound of your little feet walking behind me, your beautiful big brown eyes watching me, your gentle soft fur snuggling next to me, these precious little moments are my treasured memories of you. We would play dress up and you would let me put you on so many things, you had such an amazing patience that only love can give. The way you looked at me when I would walk away, I would run back and hug you letting you know that I would never leave you. You are and will always be my special little angel that God let me have for a few years. Even though I wish we could of had more time together, your mission in life was complete and God called you back home. Destiny was benevolent to us and brought us together and I thank him for that. I feel you sitting in the gates of heaven waiting for me to come, I’m sorry I cannot be where you are right now. It might seem like a long time, but before you know it, we will be together again and this time it will be forever. Until we meet again my little Penny, I know you will be first one running towards me greeting me in heaven. “Goodbye may seem forever, farewell is like the end, but in my heart is a memory and there you’ll always be.”
