The Incredible Leaping Doberman

Today's Monday Mischief installment is a little spin-off from Thursday's post in which I briefly mentioned admitted that --gasp-- my perfect precious little angels just might have some, um, annoying habits.

While Teutul and Sophie are pretty much set in their quirky little ways, there's a new girl in town with her own bag of tricks... some of which need to be taken down a few notches.

For instance, Penny just doesn't get "personal space." She loves her humans so much that she must always get to them... as fast as her lanky legs can propel her leaping body from the floor/ couch/her other human's lap.

And, it's not a wimpy leap. Penny leaps with authority, backed with all of her puppy energy that she's not afraid to use. If you're not paying attention, bad things can happen. Spilled drinks. Flying popcorn. A paw in the eye. A paw someplace her Daddy thinks is the worst thing ever. Dropped stitches (which her Mama argues is the worst thing ever). You get the picture...

There are also plenty of times when Penny just climbs up into my lap. I might be in the middle of a game of Farm Heroes, reading a magazine, or about to take a bite of a juicy burger. But no matter what I might have been doing, Penny knows I need cuddles at that very moment. And you know what, she's usually right. After all, who could resist this (look how small she was just a couple of months ago!)...

We sometimes have personal space issues in the car as well.  Although Penny is big enough to ride in the backseat, sometimes she still needs to  I swear if she could talk, we'd hear "are we there yet? huh, huh, are we there yet?" for the entire car ride.  This shot was taken during a pit stop on the way to a race a few weeks ago and she really was looking out the window to see if we were at the track yet.

Just like human kids, sometimes she just wants to be nosey...

After all, riding in the backseat can get lonely...

We won't even get into the issue of Penny kisses today. Let's just say, she's a lick monster just like her big angel sister Lola. Besides, I'm still wondering how my tiny little cuddle bug/lick monster got to be 33.4 pounds (as of last Tuesday) so fast?  I miss when she used to come stand by the couch or bed and ask for "uppies."  My little girl is growing up way too fast.

It would be hard to deny Penny's sweet face. Those pictures are just too cute, haha!

What a sweet girl!

She is so cute! But I do understand that personal space thing, its actually something that has never been a problem for me. I say as I inch myself closer to mom little by little on the couch every afternoon. Love Dolly

It's amazing how fast she's growing. But then, I'm amazed every time I see Tank at how big he's getting, too!

I know the feeling well. I have several 60+ pound lapdogs.
