*In a nervous voice* H-h-hi… I’m Penelope. Strangers make me nervous… so please bear with me. I was brought to DCHS as a stray with my mom. We arrived covered in fleas and were given a bath within the first 5 minutes of walking through the front door. After our bath we were snuggled in towels and once dry, treated for the fleas so we could be free of those nasty little buggers! We have been happily flee-free ever since. I am about 4 years old, and my mom is only about a year older than I am. After we were here for a few weeks, someone who used to know us called the shelter to let them know about how old we are, and that we are a bonded mother-daughter pair. I am much more comfortable when I have my mom by my side. She has always been with me and I can’t imagine my life without her. My mom can be so silly and playful, she always makes me feel happy and at ease. I’m a bit shy, she is outgoing… together we make the perfect pair!
