Last Thursday we said farewell to Penny Lane, who moved a whole two blocks down the street and around the corner.
Her name is Skunky Mushmellon now (which I think is just about the best name ever) and she is happy, cherished, and secure. Not perfect -- what dog ever is? -- but perfectly loved.
We'll miss her a little, of course, but that's nothing compared to the gratitude of being able to help a dog go from this:
...so farewell, Skunky-who-was-once-Penny. Have a good life. I'm sure we'll see you around.
