Penelope is our dog. She got the approval from Will. We both agreed that although another pitbull wasn't really what we wanted in a second dog, she can stay. We both feel that dogs choose their families most of the time. And I really believe she chose us. We have the means to keep her, and she really won't be a burden on us.
The past few days I have been working with her, putting her into a submissive position, attempting to house train her, telling her to "sit" (which she already did most of the time.) She is a smart girl, and loves to be around her people. She doesn't like to, but will go into the crate at night with Lily. (Yes, they are sharing a crate, which is fine by me, Lily doesn't look 100% happy with the situation, but she is a super trooper.)
I have to admit that a huge weight has been lifted off of me, knowing we get to keep her, knowing that she will be here, safe. And not end up in a home that will keep her outside only as a status symbol. She is such a beautiful dog and I am glad to call her ours.
Welcome Home, Penelope Ann Pawington.
