Steve, Don't worry about the Silver hair. It looks great on you. Your dog certainly seems to be listening with an attentive ear.

Steve and Jan, Penny Lane does indeed look festive.  Are you reading her The Night Before Christmas?

Love the picture and I agree with Peter & Linda there is a marketing slant there.  You certainly have Penny Lane's attention.

Bill, white hair came from the last three years of real estate practice :-)

Jerry, the bad news is my hair is half white. The good news is my stomach is much flatter than when this photo was taken. It is hard to have all systems functioning together for my betterment.

Heck Nick, if you look in my lap you will see a whole jar of dog treats.

Gretchen, she is looking at a picture of an obedient dog sitting on command...I think I may have a small treat under my pointer finger :-)

Pfanns, you want me to make posters for dog lovers looking for a pet friendly Realtor eh?

Patricia, no...truly this is a dog training book. I was trying to determine if I could get the whole obedience thing accomplished without getting off the sofa.

Michele, Penny Lane makes the best eye contact of any dog we have had. She can stare you down. Most dogs willl look away...which is actually what you want. Penny is a pistol.

Jane, I  have only owned "cute" dogs eh?

Tony, she is now up to the second grade reading level.

Hi Steve,

Penny Lane looks so intent while you are reading to her. Mine all snuggle up on the couch and watch TV with me. One really watches the shows and barks sometimes but the other two just like to be cozy and fall asleep. Happy Holidays to you and yours.
