These are the last pictures I’ll ever have taken of me and my baby, my best friend of 20 years, my Penny. After two decades of the most pure and precious love, I had to say goodbye to this little girl who has been glued to my side since I was a child. She got me through all of the growing pains girls experience in their teens, the dark days (and years) following my mother’s passing, she was there for me through every victory and defeat of my life. She took care of me every day, just as I took care of her.
Everyone who met Penny loved her. She made those around her smile with her sweet personality and limitless energy. Her greatest joys were being with the people she loved, scratches behind her ears, and a full food bowl.
I was so blessed to have her love for 20 years, and so thankful that she never was sick or suffered through any long term illness in her life. She was my miracle, always remaining so brave and strong through the transition into her senior years. It was the love she had for her people, and our love for her, that kept her here so long, I just know it. I can’t believe she’s gone. My heart is shattered beyond repair.💔
I love you, Penny. I’ll love you forever. My baby girl, now and always.
