Meet Penelope, June's Pet of the Month.
Penelope was born in Orlando and her first owner had to give her up a week after getting her. She went to live with Roland and Truett Moore in Miami when she was 7 weeks old. They were told she was a purebred miniature Bulldog, but she quickly grew to 60 lbs!
Penelope has lived in Woodstock, VT, Miami, and Islamorada. She likes the Keys the best, because she loves the beach. And with a figure like hers, you can't blame her for showing it off a bit. In fact, she was also a centerfold in Woodstock Vermont magazine as well as a calendar girl.
Penelope loves to sit poolside at Ambrosia with the hopes of catching a few breakfast morsels or an occasional tummy rub.
Thank you, Penelope, for being Ambrosia's Pet of the Month for June. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The “sink or swim” challenge is a tradition in the Florida Keys, with Sunday’s fun scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. when teams can register at the Schooner Wharf Bar, 202 William St.
