When Penny first came on the scene, it was quite clear who the younger sibling was.
No doubt that this stinker was the family puppy
But a couple birthdays later, it’s immediately clear at a glance how old each dog is
And thankfully, Penny’s days of decor destruction are behind her so we can’t judge based on that either
But there are some habits and traits of this younger sibling which seem permanent.
Such as Penny’s role of Instigator-in-Chief
A job which she’s never taken a day off from
But despite being hard-charging herself, Penny will always follow Eko’s lead
This (not so) subtle discrepancy between tags is one of my favorite markers of personality. Take a wild guess at which tag belongs to which pup
And of course my favorite cue – wherever Eko lays his head, so too will his little sister. Often, quite literally
So yes, while they both may look all grown-up, there’s never a doubt about which sibling is which age
But I wonder how many of the differences between Eko and Penny are based on age and how many are based on personality. If you have more than one pup at home, what are some of the subtle ways you notice their age differences?
