Have we ever told you about the first time we met Pepper? It was dark and colder than expected, the street in front was full of cars so we met you down a side road, and we got help from the home they parked in front of. You sure didn't like that, but who can blame a girl for being cautious. We loved you from then on even though you returned from foster placements. You are so smart and so full of puppy energy, maybe you just liked it better here. Doggy Daycare, learning new things, and running around were your favorite. Lots of other puppies came and went and you played with them all. You learned to mimic the service dogs here and we assumed that's all it was until you began alerting when they weren't around. We knew then that scent training was your specialty. You are so mellow now that our only concern was why it was taking you so long to find your own home. We know why now. You were waiting for this family, yes, this family. They have another dog, children, chickens, and a big yard for those zoomies you love. Thank you for letting us be a part of your journey Pepper.
