Penny, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is the latest dog to join the Philipson family and school visiting team. Penny was rescued from the streets of Indianapolis by Cavalier Rescue USA and adopted on December 17, 2012 by our family, Sandy, Elliot and Tak. Although we will never know her birthday, Penny is approximately 6 years old, and we know that she did not have a very good early life. She probably never had a chance to play outside, take walks, and be loved like her brother, Tak. In spite of this, Penny is the sweetest girl you could ever want to meet. She is a bit shy at first, but loves children and grownups! She did her first two school visits recently, and really shined! We named her Penny because it is lucky to find a penny on the street, and we know that Penny will now have a lucky life as a beloved family member, school visitor, and a future book character. She even has a pink stroller for wheeling around schools! Welcome to our family, Penny!
