Here's an update on Banjo and I've attached a few of our favorite photos from the previous year:Super Banjo is still going strong, although he's had no use for his cape this winter due to the mild weather. He's lightening fast without it - the squirrels in the backyard quickly scatter whenever he's around.Although Banjo has the same energy level as when we first got him, his face is getting even whiter as he gets older (hard to imagine I know!). His favorite spot this winter is laying in front of the fireplace after Chris gets it roaring. If there's no fire, he curls up on the couch under the blanket. It's certainly exhausting being on guard duty all the time!We took Banjo on some fun hikes this past year and found out how much he likes investigating holes. On the trips when we couldn't take him along, he stayed with the grandparents and their three dogs without issue. He's gotten continuously better with other dogs, but is still terrified of children.Banjo continues to be a fun and energetic (and snuggly) member of the family.

This cute girl was named Gracie when she was with Pet Haven and has had a name change to Penny!
A happy new year to you and your family. I wanted to drop you a line and send a few pictures to let you know how our little girl is doing. Penny is growing up but still has a lot of puppy in her. She LOVES to play, go for walks, tease us with her toys, crawl up on a pile of pillows, and cuddle. She has totally taken over our house and hearts. I'm pretty sure we have become her pets. My grand-kids love her and are always posting pictures of her on their Facebook accounts. Everyone that has spent time at our house smiles the minute they see her. She smiles back! She's pretty much staying at a weight of 72 pounds and the our vet and staff laugh at her when we take her in as she is trying to kiss everyone and get the heck out of their! She has also learned to be a good girl when we take her in to be groomed. Nail cutting is something she does not enjoy but she has the most loving disposition and her defense when she is uncomfortable is to give kisses. She also has a squirrel that lives in one of the trees in her back yard who she loves to chase. I think the squirrel gets the better of her as it jumps from tree to tree while scolding her with her following on the ground. It is hard to believe she has been with us over a year. The last picture of her laying on her back (abused dog) is one of the latest and you can see how much she has grown.
Thanks again to you and all those at Pet Haven that made Penny's happy life possible. She is one happy girl and we love her.
