Yesterday Kish picked up Penny from the breeder’s home, where Penny — or PenPal, as we call her — had her second litter of puppies. She had four healthy pups this time, and she looks like a female dog who recently was nurturing her offspring. Still, she is a bit thinner than when she left, she looks fit, and she seems very happy to be home.
Having Penny home means our family is together again in close proximity and able to spend some time together, at least until Russell heads back to Vassar. Although Penny has been gone for about six weeks, it didn’t take long for us to fall into our old routines. Last night Penny and I did our first post-return circuit around the Yantis Loop, as twilight came and snowflakes fell.
