While organizing photos over the weekend, I noticed an interesting trend in Penny’s development. Every puppy I know goes through a “Crash Test Dummy” phase where they crash everywhere and smash into everything. 9.1

Penny is no exception

For most pups this phase is exactly that – a phase. But the more photos I looked through, the more I realize Penny has made the phase a full time occupation.

9.2

Penny’s shown no inclination to stop crashing full speed into Eko 

9.3

And she always thinking about putting on the brakes a second too late

9.4

But Penny’s not one to let a skid-out slow her down 

9.5

“Call off the ambulance, I’m fine!”

9.6 

“No Will, I have no idea where I got these scrapes on my face…”

If you need subtlety, tact or discretion, look elsewhere. But if you’re ever in need of a stunt-pup, make Penny your first call!

Comments for Crash Test Penny

  1. Butthead here is pretty much the same way. Almost 3 years old and still doin’ it. Good luck with your crash test dummy! I suspect it’s something she’ll do for many years to come!

  2. Oh boy… Penny I thought you will get a free ride in the firefighters truck too… but fortunately you are a brave pilote and you know how to handle an emergency landing :o)

  3. KarenS says:

    She’s just full of life & energy. Good for her. The time will come when she will slow down & you will have great memories of your “crash test dummy”. Enjoy it each & everyday. She’s something special that Ms Penny.

  4. Oh Penny. You’re still cute, stunt dog and all.

  5. Adam says:

    “Chicks dig scars” obviously Penny just hasn’t figured out yet that she is supposed to dig them on the guys.

  6. Rene L. Hester Jensen says:

    Too cute! She’s quite the character! Hope you are feeling lots better Will! Take care.

    She is adorable and reminds me so much of our Ziggy – crashing into everything also, particularly his big brother Nico and has those same little scars on his face – adorable! Hope you are feeling better now too.

    Back in ancient history when Kyla and Kenzie ruled here, He was taking them out for a walk. Some woman asked if they were “calm dogs”. “Only when they’re not bouncing off the walls”. And they did that, literally.

  9. Bless her…..she only knows two speeds…..sound asleep and FULL SPEED AHEAD!

    Hugs, Pam

  10. Hahaha! That picture of Penny falling down the hill reminds me so much of a Snoopy cartoon! 😀 What a great little (big) character Penny is.

  11. nerdgrl (Kim S.) says:

    My sister’s Doberman, Becca, crashes into everything too. So much so, she dented the hallway wall while running after my nephew (who was quick to say, “It wasn’t MY fault, Mom!” Didn’t slow Becca down at all.

  12. She is a riot and you too for catching such great shots!

  13. that beautiful girl never ceases to make me laugh! Hoping you are feeling better!

    My Mayhem is almost 2 and still crashes into everything. The poor thing is always cut up or sporting a new scar. It never slows her down though and I’ve never met a dog who has more fun!

  15. Emmadog says:

    I slipped and fell on an icy curb this morning. I tried to be graceful about it, but Mom laughed and laughed…very embarrassing for me. At least I only fall a few inches since I’m short!

  16. Nikitaland says:

    Penny is so hilarious! I love the crash test name, as I could use that for our dogs too. Every time they see our neighbors come home from work, they run to the front window to woof gladly at them, turn and run through the kitchen (I call it Scooby Doo legs, because all legs are flying everywhere), then they crash into the hallway wall trying to get their Scooby legs going again, run down the hallway into the bedroom, only to catch them driving past the window! Then they wait for them to walk past the window to their door to woof hello again! But what the neighbors don’t know is, that both Nikita and Bella are fighting to be the ONLY one on the bed to look out the window! This happens every day over here. By now, we should have a huge hole in the wall in the hallway, right!?

    Haahahh bless 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx

  18. Perhaps Samuel & Penny should hook up. He hasn’t grown out of his crash test phase either…and he will be turning 4 in a few month time!

    Lol. Omg, Penny is such a puppy. So adorable. Eko, on the other hand, is the typical serious, laid-back brother, and handsome too:-)

    Bahahahaha! She is just doing her job to entertain you. 🙂 Great action shots!
