We are very sad to announce the passing of our 2010 alumna Penny. Her family fostered her, healed her body (neck wounds) and soul, and loved her for almost twelve years through good times and bad, and were with her when she said goodbye.
From her mom, “Penny was one of the sweetest dogs ever. She loved chasing birds and squirrels. She loved eating and snuggling. She always thought she was a lap dog. She has always had a limp. This past year she stopped walking on her right front leg - the pain was so bad. After trying multiple pain medications and acupuncture we had it amputated. It came back with osteosarcoma. We knew our time was limited but we also knew we were lucky she found us!!! I know that she is running free chasing the birds now….”
Penny’s sister, 2019 alumna Ivy, has been grieving also and sleeping in Penny's favorite bed. Our hearts go out to the Robinett family and we thank them for the love they gave Penny.
“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day… unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed, and very dear.” Unknown
