Miss Penny became a part of my life in 1991. Our family had always had dogs when I was growing up. However, I had never had one as an adult.
I had always loved Beagles and Basset Hounds. I looked at the Sunday paper and found what I was looking for. I drove out to the sellers place and found several little 10 week old beagles. As the gentleman and I discussed the price, little Penny started to chew on my shoe laces. That was all it took, I was in love. 14 years later that love is even stronger. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday, July 26, 2005. This little girl brought me more joy than most human's. I will always remember her. Goodbye old girl.
"If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went."
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
Specifically: Penny's ashes are contained in a beautiful urn that rest on my mantle.
