What a racket....

A dog walked by outside and Penny spent several minutes hurling insults at it.

Wiki tells us that beagles are named for the racket they make:

" The origin of the word "beagle" is uncertain, although it has been suggested that the word derives from the French begueule (meaning "open throat" from bayer "open wide" and gueule "mouth")

Other possibilities include the French beugler (meaning "to bellow") and the German begele (meaning "to scold")."

I love the idea that Penny is scolding the invading pups.

Penny at her finest. This clip is destined to become a classic! I think you should make a sequel...showing Penny from the other side so the viewers get the feeling Penny's barking at them. It would be "The Full Penny Experience."

Man, she really let those other dogs have it. I bet they don't try whatever it was that they were doing to draw her ire again! Today at least. ;-)

My birds woke up when I played it, though they'll settle again.
