In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.

Our First 24 Hours

Wee R the nuwest residents of dee Penny Palace. We were on our way to dee kill room (a very quick way to get to Heaven) when Angels for Animals Rescue paid our randsom and got us outta der.  We stayed wid Kathryn and Terrell (Foster Mommie and Daddie) who tuk kar of us until day cud find a Forever home for us.
Ms. Tina and Doc saw R cute faces on and thought maybe we could help fill dat void left by Norman and Sparky when dey went to Heaven.

We have gone from death row to R own Palace!  Can you believe it?  We have plentee of food, R own couch, new collars, at least 8 pillows to lounge on.  We even have our own “Knight” (Mr. Dundee) who “has our back” and watches over us to make shur wee don’t doo anyting too stupid.

We have gone from doggies to be killed, to Princesses!  In dee past 24 hours wee have definitely created enough chaos to distract Mr. Doc and Ms. Tina from dat void dey were feeling.  LOL


Let me tell U just a little bit about our experiences so far….

Last night dee Foster Parents delivered us to dee Penny Palace.  Dey did a house and yard inspection.  All looked gud.  Den Dolly (Sheila) escaped through the 3” spaced bars of the Doggie Yard.  Amazing!  Dat needed immediate attenshun.  

While Ms. Tina and Foster Mommie signed the paperwork, Foster Daddie and Mr. Doc took care of the yard.  Then we all Celebrated the happy occasion.

Foster Mommie said at her house I (Liesel) would cry non-stop when put in a carrier cage.  Last night I cried softly jest for 3-4 minutes because I missed my Foster Family.  But dis Penny Palace is pretty nice and we are loved so much already.

Dis morning we awoke to a gorgeous day.  After breakfast we went shopping for some collars and harnesses.   Den wee went to several stores to get supplies for making dose yard gates more secure.  We got to go inside de stores where dee udder customers smiled when dey saw us and when dey herd we had jest bin adopted. 

At one store der were Girl Scouts selling cookies.  Ms. Tina sed we shouldn’t eat cookies because those are not gud for us.  Well we could say dee same thing to Mr. Doc and Ms. Tina!


I (Liesel) was told it was my job to help wid Penny Finding.  My first coin was a Nickel!  Pretty gud for dee first Find.


Dis afternoon we played wid our balls and toys, toys, toys!  Den after an afternoon nap, we watched as Mr. Doc and Ms. Tina spent hours adding screening to those gates.

Can you believe dey expected us to help wid chores?  We thought we were princesses.  What’s with having to help with the laundry?


It has been a long day.  Der has be so very much to learn!  For instance – we peed der, der, and der, and none of those places were gud!  Ms. Tina even complained about where we chose to poop!  She wants us to go outside.  Dats okay.  We luv the doggie door.  We raced through it dozens of times ‘cause from der we can see da street and peoples and doggies walking past our house.

Tonight we are tired.  We hope Ms. Tina will not ask us to do anything more because we jest plan to watch TV wid Mr. Doc.

From Death Row, to the Penny Palace.  Life is Gud!

With Joy,

Liesel and Sheila
