I know I’ve posted plenty of photos of the Lucydog on here, but I’m not sure I’ve ever introduced you to the Pennypup. The Pennypup and the Modern Love Machine come as a pair.
We’re basically one big modern clan now because Lucy and Penny get along famously, and Penny likes to get snuggly with me, perhaps even more than she does with the MLM (don’t tell him that). She’s the sweetest, happiest dog I think I’ve ever met. She loves to PLAY, PLAY, PLAY! which means either fetching a ball or stick or wrestling with Lucy, who puts up with it. Lucy doesn’t mind being the small spoon when we’re laying on the couch or bed, but Penny, despite being the smallest of the pack, wants to be the big spoon. She lays directly behind you and puts her head on your neck or side.
Another dog once took a chunk out of her right ear, so now it always stands up at attention. Which means it’s hard for her to not look adorable 100 percent of the time.
Penny is a year or two younger than Lucy, and they play the roles of older sister/younger sister well. Lucy is like the moody pre-teen who doesn’t usually want to be bothered except for when SHE decides she wants to come lay next to you or have you rub her belly. Penny just wants to be near you all … the … time.
The Modern Love Machine was gone all weekend for a bachelor party, which means it was an all-girls weekend. We did what girls do gossiped, painted our nails, talked about boys and had a pillow fight. Ok, not really, but we did lounge around A LOT.
The MLM and I have been apart five of the last six weekends, and it’s been really effing tough. I’ve missed him terribly. But now, we’re both home to stay, or at least when we next leave town we’ll be together. It’s the best Easter blessing I could ask for (I mean aside from the basic reason for Easter).
