Penny is just over a year old now. She did get a birthday celebration from the girls in December when she was actually born. She eats almost as much as a horse and is quite picky about which food she likes but she is a fantastic companion for our little family. Especially now that we’ve had to have Molly put down.

Everything about this beautiful girl is big. Big tail that knocks over ornaments and children. Big voice that warns of friends and what she views as potential foe. Big mouth that slobbers and drools kisses and greetings. Big body that stretches across the kitchen floor.  Big heart that loves us.

If the girls are outside, she is right with them. She keeps the chickens where they belong and herds Blue boy back on the occasions that he has escaped his pen. And she is learning not to chew off our arms in her delight to be with us.
