In Memoriam: Penny


Penny is a much loved 15 and ½ year old Sheltie. She has been seeing the veterinarians & staff at Parrish Creek Veterinary Clinic since she was about 7wks old! They have taken good care of her & have helped her live the best quality life possible. Penny was always good at keeping track of all her kids (she had 5 to begin with and more as the kids grew up & got married). When they were younger, she never went to sleep until they were all tucked in bed, which became a problem when they started going off to college! That’s when she started sleeping by the front door, and no amount of coaxing could convince her to move. Her last kid went off to college 5yrs ago, and she has recently returned to sleeping on her favorite bed.

Penny enjoys traveling with her family & especially loves the beach.  Her least favorite traveling plans include camping because she hates mosquitoes! She willingly wears a mosquito net draped over her head & front part of her body to avoid the pesky critters. Penny makes friends wherever she travels, both human & animal. Last year up in Washington, a wild rabbit came up to inquire how her day was going. Penny’s favorite time of year is the winter, especially when there is snow. When she was younger, she would love to go cross country skiing with her family. Now that she is older, one of her favorite things to do is to go outside & lie down in the snow. Penny has brought much love & joy to her pet family. They are so appreciative to the doctors & staff at Parrish Creek Veterinary Clinic for helping her have such a long life.
