Penny's Posh Pad Pawhaps!

Hi there. Yes it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!  All of my human Gary's moving malarkey has gone beyond ridiculous.  

In order to help him out, I've decided to permanently, um, temporarily take over his blog.  I've actually made the decision to stay with him at his new home for a couple of weeks extra. Okay, the truth is that his son, my human brother, Tristan, was supposed to take me to his new home on August 18. The people who were moving out of the home that Tristan was going to move into have now purchased a different home.  I'm now going to look after Gary until September 19.  Then I shall go live with Tristan.

Rest assured, I shall visit Gary a lot.  Somebody has to get this blog going again. Yep, somebody, as in this celebrity dog, has to get the interaction started up and raring to go.  
Gary has been buying brand new furniture. I love to give new furniture the curious scratch test. The sofa bed in the photo has a bed sheet covering it. I love sleeping on the sofa bed.  I've decided it's mine!
Gary!  You woke me up.  
At least you never woke up Jack Rabbit.
Such a lovely view out the window. I know that Gary shall be putting up photos of this posh pad fairly soon. Time to take my human for a walk.  Come on human, let's go for another walk......via the stairs and not via the window, I should add....

"Life is Good."

It has been a frantic, hectic time for me.  During my moving to a brand new home, my interaction within the blogging community has been sporadic at best.

It will be like this for about another month. Yet life has been put into perspective. Despite my struggling to cope, I know I'm blessed and grateful for all I have.

On Saturday, August 23, you might be aware of the passing of our beloved friend, Tina Downey.  I had the inspiring honour of interacting with Tina via many an email.  Even exchanging of emails as she lay there in her hospital bed.  Tina and I had much good natured banter.  Her, a co-host of the A to Z Challenge.  I, the ironic opposer of the A to Z.  However, I was truly touched by her sincerity, her compassion for others.  A remarkable lady who made an impact on my heart.

In this often cynical world, Tina embraced the name of her blog.  Yes, "Life is Good" and Tina savoured every moment.  To her family, her friends and from me, Tina will always be loved, never forgotten.

If you haven't had the chance to leave a comment on her site, here is the link : Moving on...on behalf of Tina Downey

I know there will be a number of dedications that will come to light.  Here is one that I would ask you to be so kind as to check out : Sunflowers for Tina - September 8, 2014 #LifeisGood #A to Z Challenge
