We understand that pets are important – they can be a big part of your family or your best friend.
A regular feature of What’s Happening at YourPlace will be dedicated to our animal companions. If you would like to share your favourite story about your pet, please contact your Tenancy Officer.
Our inaugural member of the ‘YourPlace Pack’ is Penny, a Cairn terrier and companion to Justin, YPH Tenancy Officer.
Penny is 11 months old and a graduate of the Class of 29/2/2020 Puppy School. Penny enjoys running around the oval with her friends and despite being the smallest in the ‘pack’ isn’t afraid of wrestling with anyone willing to have a crack at the title. After a big day out, a tired Penny likes nothing more than snuggling up in one of her many beds and thinking about what tomorrow has in store for her.

Did You Know ?
Dogs do dream! Dogs and humans have the same type of slow wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye movement (REM) and during this REM stage dogs can dream. The twitching and paw movements that occur during their sleep are signs that your pet is dreaming.
