"Although she likes doing things her own way, even if she shouldn't, she is incredibly loving, sweet, and lovable, and makes the people she loves feel very valued."
& # 39; Penelope brought me so much joy and love. She accompanies me when I'm too sick to go anywhere and makes me laugh on days when I didn't think I could smile at all. Not a day goes by when I am not very grateful to have my Penelope in my family. & # 39;
Kayla said she adopted Penelope when her youngest child was about to start kindergarten, and she knew that she would be home alone.
"It would be the first time in over 12 years that I no longer had a small child at home," she said.
“I had become chronically ill during my child rearing and returning to work was not an option for me. Being chronically ill can be extremely isolating, and I spend most of my time with my dogs.
“The family I got Penelope from told me about a puppy that was different from any puppy they had ever seen. She was calm and sweet in a way that it takes most puppies years to settle in. A perfect puppy for someone like me who is chronically ill. & # 39;
& # 39; Penelope is also the most loving and loving dog I have ever met. She loves to cuddle and hugs herself properly! & # 39; Kayla added.
