My mom's dog, Penny, passed away yesterday. 

 This is my favorite photo of them.

It shows the pure joy that a good dog brings.  They make your heart smile.

     She was Mom's constant companion.

      Penny was Kona's sister, and like Kona, her life was also cut short by cancer. She fought the good fight all summer.  More than ever I am convinced that everything works out for a reason.  The winds of Fate blew a tiny little angel to my mother's doorstep . . .

"Thank you, God!!!"

 . . . and just as Penny entered the worst days of her illness, this little angel came to bring a smile despite the dark clouds.

It has been a long, hard summer . . .

. . .  but I've been told . . .

. . . there are goats to chase in Heaven.

Godspeed, Pen-Pen

On a more uplifting note, for those of you who expressed an interest in whether or not Glory was a male or a female, the vet took a look at the kitten yesterday and proclaimed that Glory was definitely a little girl.

Now here's the funny part -

(Hehehehehehe. . . I'm still laughing about this!) Mom became so curious about the sex of her little kitten that she got on the internet to research how you properly determine the sex of a kitten.  (hahahahahhahahaha . . . ) Sorry, I couldn't help myself.  So anyway . . .  guess what kind of websites you pull up when you google the words "sex + kitten" together?  

I laughed so hard I almost peed in my pants.  Mom won't be doing that anymore.

Vaya con Dios, Penny...... Well done, Penny's Humom, well done. It's amazing, all the cosmic maneuvering that went on to put Glory at exactly the right place at the right time.....isn't it????

In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. ~Edward Hoagland

Sniff :~( once again you bring tears to my eyes...Bless your heart Penny! change the subject-someone once told me that all Calico cats are female...I don't know that it's true, but all that I've ever known have been. Have you ever heard that? just askin'...

I thought that too! That's why we just assumed that Glory was a girl. But after some discussion about it, we did some research. While "most" calico cats are female, and "most" orange tabby cats are male, it isn't an absolute. (I thought it was!) Our vet said in his career (long) he has only seen 2 male calico cats.
