Here's a really cute story to make you smile!
Penny's owner Karen Cummings writes:
"I owe the Port Frank's Community Centre one pumpkin. Yes, I hate to admit it, but my dog is a thief. While voting at the advanced poll earlier today, Penny picked a pumpkin from the bed by the library entrance and wouldn't let it go. I can only suspect her motives. Maybe she wanted me to vote NDP ...or maybe she just wants pumpkin pie ...but she carried it all the way home. I promise I'll either bring it back (but I can't guarantee the condition) or bring you a new one.
Sincerely, Penny the Pumpkin Picker's perplexed parent."
Well, Penny doesn't look very remorseful but that's ok - everyone forgives you Penny! Good Girl Penny! (Thanks Karen for replacing the pumpkin!)
