But perhaps one of my favorite things to come out of The Princess Bride is Princess Buttercup. We loved the character and the movie so much, that we bestowed her name upon our most precious of characters, our Basset hound … Penelope Buttercup. And oh, what a wonderful character she was. On this 25th anniversary of The Princess Bride, I am reminded of how much I loved our Penny, and how much she loved us. Look how beautiful she was.
