long day

Big day today.
This morning when my foster brother and sister went out with my foster parents I WENT WITH THEM. Normally I go out with them but they walk far ahead, that snow stuff was just too cold to walk in; but today I kept up with my brother and sister, I even took lead for awhile. They take long walks, I didn't want to go that far. And I didn't really want to go home either. Eventually I took FD back to the house.

I love the toys in the house.

I like to go to the toy box and choose my own. I can play with them for a long time. I also like to supervise the cooking at night. FD and FM  wanted a good picture, but when ever they almost got a picture I almost took the food. A good cook needs to taste the food to make sure it tastes good, right?
But niw it is late, and I really need to sleep. Good night everyone from (Pocket) Penny. 

Flip: 2/15 - snuggle and pjs

Let's talk about snuggles.  I kind of like them, and I'll go back for them over and over and over even when there's another pup in line waiting for snuggles.

Then there are the pjs.  I love being toasty when it gets chilly out.  Wearing pjs works, and I even like being tucked in under a blanket.

Whatcha cooking up there?
Hold on!  I'm getting the crumbs as quick as I can!

Until next time!


2/14/19 - Mandrill - muddy feet

Hey, Mandy, how did that muddy mark get all over the wall, right where you happen to be looking so cute? You wouldn’t have had anything to do with that, would you?
“Uhhh, nope, got no idea where that came from... Maybe the cat did it?”
“We don’t have a cat, Mandy.”
“Oh, oops! Am I still cute?”
“Yes, yes you are.”

Flip: 2/14 - little people

I got to meet some little people, and I kind of like the littlest one.  Want to know why?  It might be because I can follow her around and pick up any crumbs she leaves behind.

 That's the spot.  Pet me right there.

Yes she's petting me.  Let her finish please.  She got my favorite spot! 

 Let's see what's going on in here little one.
What is this?  This thing makes noises!

Can you tell me what these things do?

So if we push this button it sounds like a bell?

Until next time!

My favorite toy
Where you goes, I goes...

bundled and ready

Hey, Penny here. The sun is out today and we are all so excited to get outside. FD and FD got us all bundled up, it is good to feel like part of the pack.  I went outside with out coaxing. My foster brother and sister went ahead; they know the ropes, you know. and I followed, slowly. I went done those long steps with some hesitation, there is still a little ice and snow about. but once we got down the steps I kept up with my brother and sister! They went for a longer walk than I did, because it was still pretty icy where they were going. 

I had a big serving of Kibble today, and I loved it. 

 This is me in the Blue hat.
Back home now in my big puffy bed.

I am going for a ride in the back of the big car today to see the Vet. But it is OK, FM will be with me.

Talk to you later.

Flip: 2/13 - naps and ears

Flip here checking in again.  Thought I'd show off my mad napping skills and amazing ears.

Once I settled in with FM, I quickly found the favorite bed.  Thankfully I didn't have to share.  

And here are my ears.  FM said some people love love love us pups with the funny ears so here are mine.  They're not the best pictures of me, but you get the idea.

Like most dogs, my ears go up whenever something has my interest.

Until next time!
