Penny (formerly known as Cocoabean)

I went to support the adoption clinic at Miller’s Animal Hospital in September. I was not looking for a third dog, as I have two Dachshunds; one I adopted (Molly) and one I rescued (Cocoa-Bean) shortly after I lost my dog Faith and my husband Lou, both in 2009. My dog Darla (English Setter) was so lonely in an empty house without them when I went to work. And so I brought home new pals which she enjoyed. She passed away this past April 2017 at the age of 15. She was my husband’s last hunting dog.

Somehow Penny found me. She was recovering from surgery and had this look in her eyes I could not resist. Well… on that very same day she was brought to my house by Amanda to see if she got along with Molly and Cocoa. Not only did they get along, they all bonded very quickly. My family and friends who have met her find it amazing how social and comfortable she is with them in a new environment.

She is a joy and seems as if she has always lived with me.
