Note from brother David:
Hey family, You guys have all been so sweet to Penny for the past 8 years. It has actually been 8 years to the day (July 1, 2002) since Anne got Penny, but she passed away very peacefully at Chi Thu's house tonight. She was diagnosed with a heart condition more than a year ago, so she was very strong to have lasted this long. She always got the best care from every one who took care of her and she loved the family. Everyone was always so nice to her and seemed to go a little out of their way to show her some attention - especially Chi Thu, who gave her unbelievable care and attention, and who made her happy until the very last day. She was truly a sweet, nutty, and incredibly perfect dog. This may sound silly but if she could talk I know she would say thank you to everyone for sneaking her treats and being so kind to her.
Such a beautiful picture of Anne & Penny:
I freaking love you Penny. I'm so glad my kids met you.
