Oh how I love this lady! Allison was my residence director when I was a junior at Meredith and my only year as an resident assistant. She has a dog now, little miss Penny. Penny is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and is as cute as can be. Her eyes are just so expressive, and communicate so well. Penny has recently been granted permission to live in the residence hall with Allison as a therapy dog, a role that she is perfect for! Allison is THE BEST and let me borrow her sleeping bag to take to Peru last week (and the super awesome compression bag that made it super small and fit perfectly in my backpack!). It was so great catching up with her and getting to spend some QT with little Penny. AVdB, I am so grateful for your friendship and support for my trip to Peru!
