This is Penelope. She’s a 2.5 year old, 6 lb toy poodle. Sometimes I tell people she’s a miniature Portuguese Water Dog, just to mess with them. I know, I’m mean. She’s adorable & that’s a good thing (as I regularly remind her) because she can be very naughty. She’s nearly impossible to photograph, which is due in part to the fact that she only sits still when she’s asleep and in part to the fact that she’s midnight black and it’s impossible to tell which end is which unless the lighting is just right.
That being said, here are some of my favorites. (Feel free to join into a game of “Which side’s the tail?”)
