From Pam of edinburgh, IN

I had to put my baby down after 15years of love. It broke my heart!! I was looking on web sites for another friend and saw Penny on Shelby Co. animal shelter. When I saw her eyes I knew she was the one. She was a senior of 5? years. Well my husband wasn't sure of her, but she went home with us anyway. My husband has Parkinson's and started to fall a lot. After we got Penny home, a week later Larry, my husband, fell. Penny ran over to him lay down beside him, put her paw on him and licked his face!! Larry now likes Penny and I love her. This was 2 years ago and my husband is bed fast now. but if anybody new comes in the house she won't leave his bed side until she is sure they wont hurt him!! what a great gal.
