Miss Penelope

You may have seen on Instagram that there is a new addition to our family...Miss Penelope Murphy Marino!

We weren't even planning on rescuing a puppy, but sometimes they just chose you!  Our roommate Murph had been going back and forth about getting a puppy for awhile, and Friday night we decided to browse online, "just for fun!"  Among all the adorable puppies was little Miss Penelope.  We were all searching through separately and all fell in love with those eyes!  So, the next day we went to the Humane Society of Sarasota...just to look.

Famous last words.

The minute we laid eyes on her, sitting quietly in her cage and licking our fingers through the door, it was over.  We brought her into the little play room and she walked right up to Murph and licked his face, and then to Dom and laid her head right in his hands, waiting to be snuggled.  Murph couldn't pull the trigger, since he is unsure of where he will be in the future, so Dom put a hold on her until Tuesday..just in case! I think you can see where this is going. ;)  After talking about it all weekend we knew we couldn't leave her there.

She is an 8 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback and Labrador Retriever mix, with maybe something else in there too, considering how small she is, and will probably not grow much more.  The Humane Society rescued her at around 6 months from a kill shelter from Mississippi, and they believe she has been in a shelter her whole life.  Needless to say, there was no way she was being left there!  After discussing it we decided to adopt her!  She will be our dog while we all live together, and then Dom and I will take her once we go separate ways.  In one day she went from no parents to 3! 

We literally could not love this little girl any more.  Living her whole life in a shelter means she has never had a toy, and actually doesn't know what to do with them!  Slowly she is figuring them out, and after a few trips to the doggy park and doggy beach she will have it down. 
She is very calm, quiet, and snuggly.  She loves to stay close and turn into a "puppy ball."  If you sit on the ground she will just walk up to you and curl into a ball on your lap.  I think I melt about 8 thousand times a day! 

She is obsessed with mirrors, Dom, and Jack Rogers sandals.  No matter what happens, once Dom walks through the door she curls up and life. is. good.  She is also very fun of her new best friend, Tally!  Her Aunt Hallie graciously lent us her crate until ours arrives, and the two puppies had so much fun jumping, playing, and kissing each other!


She very much dislikes bath time.
Thankfully, we both survived and I only shed a quick tear.  Afterwards she got extra snuggles and a blanket and went right back to snoozing.  So much has happened in the past few days!  I think this little love bug is tired out from all the love.

Penelope is spoiled rotten already, and it feels so good!  We are making a huge difference in her life, but she is changing ours even more.  There's nothing like coming home to her sweet eyes and wagging tail.  She is the happiest little puppy and I don't know how we felt complete without her!

  1. My German Shepherd brightens my day every single day, so I can only imagine what this sweet little girl is doing! :) She looks precious and I'm so happy you were able to rescue her from shelter life.

I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice.

So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children.

  2. That is so awesome you guys could rescue her! Those puppy eyes would have gotten me too :) My roommates also rescued a dog that had been in a shelter her whole life. She didn't know what a toy was either but now happily plays with 5 at the same time! Having a dog is the best thing ever - any day is made better when you come back to that sweet face!

  13. She is so incredibly precious! I am virtually in love with baby Penelope! I am currently watching my aunt and uncle's ridgebacks, they are such a fun breed. They are active and playful but totally tone it down and are so calm and quiet when they need to be.

  14. My dog is a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Lab mix also! They are so animated and expressive with their eyebrows moving them up & down all the time haha! If you haven't noticed already :) We rescued him when he was 2, so we didn't get a chance to see him as a puppy, but he looks exactly like your puppy in adult form. Sweetest and cutest dogs ever! Can't wait to see more pics of Penelope as she grows :)
