PENELOPE SPEAKS: DOES THIS JACKET MAKE MY BUTT LOOK BIG?

Hello. It is I, Penelope.

Sometimes it is cold here in Florida. Franklin wears a big, furry winter coat all the time. I have short hair, so Mom Mom got a jacket for me to wear on cold days.

At first, I did not like the jacket. I had never worn such a thing. So I hid behind a chair and had big scaredy eyes.


Then I started to think the jacket was soft. It felt warm, kind of like wearing a blanket. Franklin said, Come out, Penlapee. You look good in your jacket.



I went outside. Mom Mom took photos of me because I look so beautiful. The bright red jacket looks nice with my black-and-white fur. The jacket has a snowflake on it, too, although I do not know what snow is.



But wait a minute! I don't like the way that Franklin is looking at my butt! Does this jacket make my butt look big?



Franklin said, I was NOT looking at her butt.



Look at Franklin sit so perfectly as if he's a little angel.



But then Franklin said, I'm sorry I looked at your butt, Penlapee. It doesn't look big. Let me give you a kiss because you are my sister and Kissmas is coming.




That took my by surprise. It was quite nice of Franklin.



I like this photo of me in the jacket. I look long and lean.



Is my butt still back there? Yes, it always follows me, but Mom Mom has assured me that I have a pretty bottom.



It is chilly and rainy today. I like my jacket a lot. Thank you, Mom Mom.




That is all. Goodbye.

  3. Franklin's nose will grow if he continues to tell porky-pies like that.
    He was looking at your butt - in sincere admiration.
    You look beautiful.

  4. Lol. Love these little sweethearts! So cool for it to be cold for a change, huh? We actually had snow flurries here in Austin today with a little accumulation! What fun! I love when it gets cold enough for the dogs to wear their coats and sweaters. Sadly it only lasts a minute...but it's a fun minute. Great photo opps...

  5. I have to say I'm not sure Penlapee is totally convinced by the jacket yet, but it does look very smart. :)

  6. Hi Penelope. This is Zoey. Personally, I think you look like a fashionista. My mom didn't buy me a sweater, but I don't mind. I'm just happy she still takes me for a walk. I don't think she likes the cold though because she walks faster and makes a grumbling sound every time the wind blows. I think you and Franklin are two of the prettiest dogs I've ever seen. Can I call you Penny?

    1. Yes, you can call me Penny. Sometimes Mom Mom calls me that. It's better than Penlapee.

  8. Penny looks great in her jacket. You could put an A on it and it would be an Alabama jacket.

  11. Mom Mom has good taste, Penelope. Your new coat is beautiful and a perfect fit. Of course, your old coat is both those things, too.

    I love your illustrated story, Mom Mom.

    (And Franklin is a wise little old man.)

  14. Anyone who's smart knows that the only suitable answer to a question like "Does this jacket make my butt look big?" is always "No."

  21. We got our first real snow a few days ago, Janie—about 8". Maybe you'd like to visit my house again and bring Penelope along with you. You both might need a sweater with a snowflake on it.

  22. What a charming photo-story! ☺ Thanks for showing us your lovely jacket, Penelope. We had our first snow storm last night. Maybe you too will see snow someday.

  23. Sorry I am so late to tell you that you are a very beautiful. The jacket looks very pretty on you too. So happy you have such a wonderful Big Brother.

    cheers, parsnip and mandibles.
