Muffin’s Pet Connection: Week of October 18

HEY JUDE: WOOF WOOF… Penny is a sweet and beautiful, 30-poundtwo-year-old Lab mix. She is up-to-date on her shots, spayed, leash-trained, housebroken and heartworm-negative.

“She does not get along with kitties, which is why she is needs a new home. Other than the issues with the cats, she is a super dog and would make a great family pet; she is great with kids.

“Penny loves to cuddle on your lap and sit on the couch next to you. She is always up for a walk and some possible squirrel sightings. She gets excited watching them play in the trees. Penny likes playing fetch inside with her squeaky toy; she is very smart, playful. She also rides well in the car.

“Penny knows most of the basic commands: sit, leave it, down, high five, etc. Penny is able to be left alone but she does have a little separation anxiety caused by her previous owners and needs to have a potty break as soon as you return home. Please consider adding her to your family. Call 850-866-2827.

IN LOVING MEMORY: “Purr softly in Heaven, my bed buddy. I miss you all the time but especially at nightwhen we would sleep together head to head and you purred me to sleep. You are greatly missed.” — Rita
