Just wanted to share a few pictures of our new puppy. We adopted her today from the SPCA. She'd run out of time at a different shelter and arrived at this one two days ago. She is a five month old, 33 lb "Shepherd Mix." I think she has some Rottweiler in her--she reminds me a lot of our dog Clover that we had growing up. Anyway, we've named her Pepper (inspired by Dr. Pepper) and she's a total sweetheart. We considered a variety of "Texas" inspired names--Dixie, Dallas, Star--but J liked Pepper best so Pepper she is. Pepper loves to give kisses and is always close by. She and Zoe have had fun running around the yard together. Zoe has no problem reminding her that Zoe is the alpha dog. J is already a big Pepper fan. N has gotten many a face washing. Pepper seems to be at least mostly housebroken so that's a huge bonus. We are so thrilled to have her as part of our family.
