Please excuse this family post. Today would have been our Penelope's 16th birthday. For 15 years she was part of our July 4th celebrations, part of everything actually.
Truthfully, the house revolved around Penelope. She was the queen bee, the alpha dog. There were no rules for Penelope, or only rules to keep her safe. She wasn't spoiled, mind you, only very well loved.
And she gave back so much love. We miss you, Penelope.
Queen of our hearts.
Mama & Daddy would love to have had just one more birthday with you.
