Penelope The Beagle

A few months ago my daughter Kristina moved from a house that she shared with roommates into a small studio apartment in Portland.
Her boyfriend had bought her a cute Beagle pup for her birthday the year before.
Long story-short: She couldn't take Penny to live with her.

Well, somehow we ended up with Penny even though I really didn't want another dog at the time. I have a hard time saying no to my kids!
It's been good times ever since and I say that with the utmost sarcasm!
Penny is a bit of a trial.
She's cute to look at but I never knew all the trouble an innocent looking dog could get into!

Despite promises of her being trained to potty outdoors.......she isn't......even when the back door is left wide open for that purpose.
But she is getting better.....we're working on it!

Since Penny went into heat for the first time she has taken to humping my loveseat cushions! Totally unacceptable and really....kind of gross too.
The worst part is......if you aren't careful....she drags them outside to do her dirty deed!
Much stuffing has been found! It looks like it snowed!
I think I'm going to buy her a large stuffed animal to be her new "friend".
Since Kristina likes to sew....I have a repair job for her!
You owe me, girl!

See that recliner she's laying on in the photo? Chewed up the arm rests on that!
Yes.....good times....good times!
Our back yard will look like a bomb blew up if we don't keep a close eye on her.
She likes to chew on things, dig holes, drag things around the yard, etc.
My cute yard flags were shredded within minutes of hanging them up.....yes, I should have known better!

I've often thought of finding her a new home but Kristina loves to see her when she visits and now my son Daniel is attached to her and so is our dog Daisy and well.....she IS cute.

Just not sure how much more I can take!
