Pet of the Week - Eleanor & Penelope Skelnik-01

Eleanor & Penelope SkelnikBeagle & Special Mix respectively!

How did you obtain your pet?

I adopted both dogs almost three months ago.  They were bonded and had to be adopted out together.  I wasn’t planning on getting two dogs…but they end up picking you and the rest is history.

How old is your pet?

Eleanor is 3 and Penelope is 2.

What is your pet’s favorite pastime?

Eleanor’s favorite thing to do is eat… anything!  Penelope loves to play.  Whether it’s with me, Eleanor, by herself with a toy or a random dog.  She also for some reason likes to eat and chew on tall pieces of grass.

What is your pet’s favorite toy?

Penelope loves any toy she can get her paws on.  Eleanor loves tennis balls and blankets, oddly enough.

What is your favorite thing about your pet?

My favorite thing about my dogs is how different they are.  They are overly bonded (probably to a fault – we’re working on it) but sometimes it can be cute.  Eleanor is confident, brazen, attention loving dog while Penelope is so kind and gentle.  But they work together.  Also, they are just beyond funny.

If your pet had a super power, what would it be?

Eleanor would have a food-based power, like making food appear, eating whenever and not gain any weight.  Penelope’s would be to fly.

Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?

Both dogs love Caring Hands because of how great the staff is.  They care about the animals and communicate well to owners too. It’s obvious everyone who works there loves animals.
