Pepper with some of Samantha's kittens and Little Tina
Now it became very obvious, very fast that Pepper was not going to look like a Cocker Spaniel. But that did not mean that he wasn't very beautiful and very loved. We just sorta don't know who his daddy was, but he must have been a long legged beautiful brown dog. Mom can still remember how soft and silky he was, and he loved being petted and loved on.

At the time that Pepper was part of our family, Dad was working up town off the square and Pepper would sometimes go up there and visit him. Remember this was way back in the days of no leash law's etc. and he was the town dog. Everyone knew him, everyone loved him. So one day when dad was working up there and Pepper had been visiting, dad heard a commotion over behind the Holiday Inn. Dad looked up and there went Pepper running full speed across the field behind the motel carrying a link sausage in his mouth and a whole big long string of them attached! Everyone in the parking lot was laughing! Pepper was truly comical, without even trying!

Now sadly, one morning when all of our little family got up, Pepper was gone. Just gone. The whole family and neighborhood searched and searched for him and no one could find him and no one had seen him. Our very nice neighbors were so sad, they loved Pepper like he was part of their family too. At the time "Homer neighbor" was politicking in the next town over, and he claims that while he was going door to door, he saw Pepper! Now we don't know, but we want to think that some family loved him as much as we did and just wanted him really really bad.
He really was a WONDERDOG!
Do you really think someone would steal this dog :) Our beloved Pepper~
