'Pen Eh' The Jack Russell Dog And Modest Internet Star.
Yes, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star. Now then, Gary, the human I allow to live with me, came back from a really long trip over to Canada. He's told me that Canadians say 'eh' a lot, eh. So the old fart thought it would be real clever if I had my named stated in the Canadian version. Thus, 'Penny' becomes 'Pen Eh'. Oh, how clever. I think not, eh.
Right then, to humour the old dude, I reluctantly posed in front of a 'Canada Eh' t-shirt and a Vancouver Canucks flag. Apparently, a bunch of folks in British Columbia were sticking flags like the one in the photo, on their vehicles during the Canucks Stanley Cup play-off run. Whatever the heck that is. And yes, it gets worse, I went along with it and wore a genuine Canadian toque. Note my overwhelming enthusiasm.
This is my new doggy pal, Bean. Bean is a Canadian dog and is a much loved family member of Heather and Wayne's. Gary has told me that Bean is quite the runner. Aha, runner Bean...get it? Arf, forget it, eh. How you been, Bean? Bean, what say you and I do a collaboration posting sometime in the near future?
When Gary came back after five long weeks, which seemed like five years to me, I actually recognised him. I know he was worried that I might bark at him, chase him out of the house or piddle on his shoes. Much to his delight, I went crazy with excitement, gave him doggy kisses and then piddled on his shoes. I missed him as much as he missed me.
July 1 is 'Canada Day'. You can find out a bit of the history of Canada Day, here : Canada Day. So, on behalf of Gary, I wish all Canadian animals and humans, a peaceful, pawsitive Canada Day, eh. This is 'Pen Eh', Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, saying, see ya later eh.....
