Well, I couldn't call this "stair-master" because I still have lots of work to do on backgrounds!
So pretty silly eh? Yep, but I just couldn't resist giving Penny the "Gorey" hat. I don't know what happened in this scan. The walls are a rich violet and they went gray in the scan. Oh well. The background inspiration for this was the August 27th calendar day from "The Blue Aspic" which read "a statue fell on the Duke of Whaup during the second interval of Amable Tastu." As you can see, Penny really doesn't care about the Duke. It certainly does not concern her in the least. She is, after all, The Poodle.
Penny actually sits this way. She plops her bum on the top stair and then sets her front feet on the bottom one as seen in the photo. Silly girl! A perfect match for her very silly humans!
