Sweetest Sheltie Angel Ever

04/20/2004 -


Sweet Penny was pulled as a rescue from a no-kill shelter in 2017 at 13 years in absolutely shocking condition — thin, bony, no coat, recovering from giardia, but her darling spirit showed through it all. She was microchipped, so we knew her name and birthdate. The shelter said her owner had died, but we knew nothing else about her. She ate well and recovered and was soon doing zoomies with my 8-year-old Sheltie, Grace the Adventure Sheltie.
We decided to keep her ourselves, and for the next 2 1/2 years she traveled with us in our RV and had some of her own adventures. She loved to meet people in campgrounds the best.
It was a sad day when everything started failing and her time finally came. I had hoped to have a Sweet 16 party for her, but it was not to be. At the end, I whispered to her that she would soon see the person she had loved for 13 years as she crossed the Bridge. I hope she did.
