Happy Birthday, Mr. Pepper!

It's been exactly one year since Mr. Pepper came into my life.  The original plan was to pick him up from the shelter, foster him for a few days then send him to a wonderful senior dog rescue in the Bay Area...  But as with most things in life, things didn't go as planned.  

I remember the exact moment when I realized that I couldn't let him go.  It was when he greeted me at the door with his tail wagging, his eyes lit up as if he's known me all his life.  Yeah... you know that look and what it does to the heart...

There was no doubt that Mr. Pepper had health issues; arthritis, chronic upper respiratory infection, possible cataracts and who knows what else...  I also knew that making him a part of my life also meant that I would be taking a chance on love as our time together could be short lived.  

I'm so happy that I took that leap!  

Mr. Pepper is the light of my life.  Each time I look into those sweet eyes of his, I'm in awe.  "Just how did you get to be so cute, Mr. Pepper?" I'd ask.  He'd humbly lower his head and give me his paw.  I know, I know... He has his ways ;) 

Happy Birthday, Mr. Pepper!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Janet. Mr. Pepper is a gem and I'm so happy to have in in my life!
I'm so sorry that you lost little Maxwell, he was lucky to have you as his family.
