My name is Penny.
Sometimes, the rest of the pack goes away and I spend a few days with a bunch of other dogs. This happened just a few days ago. It’s not that bad, really. In fact, there is one thing about it that I really like: they give me a little neckerchief to wear when I’m there. This last time, I got a pretty pink one with white polka dots. I really love it!
Don’t get me wrong. For the most part, I prefer to go natural. I’m perfectly comfortable in my own skin, and I know I look pretty good already in my normal, copper-colored coat. And too much clothing would be a pain. Why would I want to be fumbling with trousers when I need to answer Nature’s call?
Still, I enjoy being fashionable once in a while. I think a bright splash of color around my neck makes me look even better. It helps me to stand out from the rest of the pack, and I like that. When I go for a walk around the neighborhood in my pink neckerchief, I walk with head held high.
