It was a sad day today, I had to return the puppy to the puppy rescue place. Her name was Pepper, and she was an ornery little mutt. But her redeeming factor was that she loved me unconditionally. Dogs are like that, no matter what you do, they are happy to see you. Allergies. That's why she had to go back. When a doctor tells you to wear a mask when you're around the dog you know it's time for her to go. She was only 7 months old, but she was smart for her age. I'll miss her. It's hard now to come home to a house without love.
