Eko sticks by my side, but I get one good look at Penny before she dives into the fray

I was worried I might have a tough time keeping an eye on Penny amidst the throng of people and pups, but I’ve developed a simple system that makes finding Penny a cinch.

First, look for the fastest moving thing on the beach. If it’s not Penny, proceed to step two.

Step Two: Look for the blur chasing the fastest thing on the beach

Next, check for the pups playing fetch. Penny is usually trying to fetch them

Happen to notice another crazy pup that’s not Penny?

Keep your eyes glued. Nutty dogs always find each other

And if there are no bouncing or speeding pups?

Look for the biggest pup in the park

But who has time to run then fetch then bounce then crash? Which is why the easiest way to find Penny is to look for the one pup that’s running, fetching, bouncing and crashing all at the same time.

She’s an excellent multi-tasker

Penny gives me plenty of things to worry about, but losing her at the beach certainly isn’t one of them. Because like a bad penny…

She always turns up!

Comments for Like a Bad Penny…

  1. Penny, Penny, Penny…you never cease to make me smile. And thank my lucky stars I don’t have to keep up with you! 🙂

  2. Emmadog says:

    Good she is always easy to spot, and I’m sure Eko keeps an eye on her as well even when he is trying to ignore her.

  3. Penny thinks big… to start a race with a greyhound and to ask a Newfie for a water battle is not bad… chapeau Penny! Maybe there is any adequate canine challenge to the Ironman? I would place my piggy bank on her :o)

  4. She and Sammie need to meet – I think they’d have a great time chasing each other! And, like Penny, Sammie isn’t interested in fetch – she’s more interested in fetching the fetcher!

  5. Kismet says:

    Kali would fit right in-she’s nuts also.

  6. You need to attach one of those flags on a stick to her, like they have on bicycles! Then you’ll always be able to spot her from afar! 🙂

  7. Victoria says:

    i think penny has some Energizer Bunny in her DNA

  8. Cupcake says:

    You’ve got a great system, W. It also seems like the nutty dogs walk on 2 feet a lot. Hmmmm….

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    Penny is like the “wind”. You can’t see it, but you can feel it; it can be gentile or like a hurricane; it lifts us up, or crashes things around down by us. It’s everywhere, and we all love it, and gives us something to talk about with everyone

  10. Just love her spirit! That Newfie looks like the Kraken of Dogs rising up from the sea between Eko and Penny! 🙂

  11. She just cracks me up! That black dog looked downright scary and she wasn’t bothered in the least!

  12. fredrieka says:

    That looks like a blast

  13. Ogee says:

    Adorable! Such a little trouble maker…girl after my own heart. <3

  14. I’d be dizzy just watching all that action. You’d think she’d sleep for a week after a trip to the beach. The Newfie dog is like a friendly giant.
