Penny the Wonder Pup

I haven’t written much here lately because I’ve been busy chasing a puppy around. We adopted our new puppy, Penny, three weeks ago today from the Northeast Animal Shelter, and at this stage she’s more into chewing monitor cords than blogging. Even though I didn’t post much this month, I had more hits than ever thanks to this post at Tipnut.com, which included one of my aprons in a round-up of internet tutorials. Check out Tipnut if you haven’t, it’s full of handy information.

Penny is something of a mystery mutt, but we think she’s part beagle and maybe some other type of hound, maybe with some pointer mixed in for good measure. Whatever she is, she’s darling. Three weeks in and at about four months of age, she’s well on her way to being house-trained, she’s sleeping the night in her crate without barking or crying (for the most part), and she has learned to sit, stay, and lie down (and she’ll perform each of them on command if she’s not distracted by something exciting or delicious.)

I wanted a picture of her to add to this post, so I attempted Penny’s first photo shoot. The best photo is cute, but the outtakes tell the real story.

Here’s the money shot:

And here are the outtakes, accompanied by my anthropomorphic commentary:

You think I’m just gonna sit here while you’re holding that tasty Milk Bone in the air?

Not a chance, chump.

This is so lame.

None of my friends even read your stupid blog anyway.

Okay, okay, I’m ready for my close-up.

Enough already! I don’t know about you, but this puppy is pooped.

…Zzzzzzzzzzz……
