In April of 2017 we met Penelope. The day she entered our home we knew she was the puppy for us. We waited many years to bring a dog into our home as we were jugging schedules, work commitments and weren’t home on a consistent basis.
Penelope became Pepper, and our lives have been forever changed. She is a loving, curious, enthusiastic dog. Pepper loves everyone, and especially any new friend that will play fetch with her. If there is a ball nearby, Pepper will find it, and drop it at your feet.
Pepper shares our home with our cat, Abbie, who isn’t exactly thrilled by her new sister. Pepper on the other hand always wants to play, and still tries to engage the cat in a variety of shenanigans.
Our swimming pool was basically built for this dog. Our Las Vegas summers are spent swimming, playing ball in the pool, and drying her off.
Pepper loves road trips, and is a great companion. She’s traveled to the beach in Huntington, the mountains in Utah & Lake Tahoe and the snow in Nebraska. She can also be a sophisticated city dog, staying in hotels and visiting our daughters in Los Angeles & Reno.
We hope to rescue another Lab from LV Rescue in a few years, giving the cat another reason to be grumpy. Thank you to all the volunteers and foster parents, you’ve made us very happy.
