“ …Penny used to come to the window every day when she heard me coming home, it made my heart smile. I miss her joy very much. When I think of her and her unstoppable happiness, I know that by becoming a tissue donor she was also able to bring joy to other pets, and their families, by helping pain and injuries to heal. Penny’s memory has more meaning because of knowing that.”
