Pepper the Wonder Dog

I love dogs, cats, birds, snakes, monkeys, apes – you get the drift. Ever since I was a little girl, I’m undeniably drawn to animals. (I wonder, did it have something to do with being an only child?)

Years later, I’m still in love with animals of all sizes and shapes (except maggots – ew!). Here’s Pepper the Wonder Dog, a.k.a. Pipay, nuzzling me and showing me some love. Dog face

The child in me wants to believe that all dogs and cats have souls. Please, God, let that be true.

Pepper is a dachshund – and a really smart and sensitive dog. She’s about two years old.

  1. We have a dog ourselves. Her name's Jinky. She's a Jack Russell Terrier, a really cuddly one. Pepper, by the way, looks really cute. :D

  2. Yes, Pepper is a darling. An independent-thinker. If she were human, she'd be a really strong and loyal woman!
