I introduce to you, The Little Monster. Also known as Penny.
Penelope Lu is her full name but she goes by Penny. The “Lu” is in honor of her “soul sister,” Lucy, our chihuahua who passed away in April 2012.
Lucy was my soul mate. Penny is our Lucky Penny. She is ornery. And sweet. And fun. And she keeps us on our toes. She has earned quite a few nicknames since we brought her home in August 2012: Penny Partockamoose, Papaya, Sweet P, Balthazar and Little Monster.
She earned the nickname Little Monster pretty quickly because as a puppy she was a terror. A good terror, but a terror nonetheless.
