Pang Pang looking forward to Dogtoberfest

Hi Everyone,

Pang Pang and I are looking so forward to Dogtoberfest this year! Petey is going too - probably the only boxer in a field of gold! He is a friendly boy, who loves everyone so I know he will have a good time too.

Pang Pang had a busy summer at work – mostly getting more attention than ever. Two of our residents painted her portrait, one attached for you to view. I am amazed at their talent and so thrilled they love her enough to paint her and write about her. She continues to be “Princess Pang Pang,” who lavishes her kisses and attention on her adoring seniors. She represented our community at several events, including a 911 Memorial, which landed her a photo in the local newspaper – not the first one. She seems to be welcome everywhere and when she is not with me I am asked “Why?” constantly.

At home our girl is Petey’s big sister and he has no idea that she is a princess. They square off (attached photo) and play until they drop. I learned long ago to buy them both the exact same toy because no matter what one has – the other wants! Although they compete for attention, they love each other, usually curling up together to sleep. When I take him to work she seems to coach him, as he does not have her maturity and self-esteem. We are working on that, knowing that she is very good for him. They are so different, which makes them all the more fun together.

Hope to see you Saturday. We are very excited to finally be participating in a GRCGLAR event!
