Anyway after almost two weeks of visiting, one morning, Neil went to see her on his own as I was at work and as he approached her kennel, she was there waiting at the door, tail wagging. That was the day we honestly knew she was ours!! It was beautiful. Neil couldn’t wait to tell me and send me a video of her. My heart melted.
A couple of days later on November 12th 2018, Pepper came home!! The staff at JFD were amazing!! Margaret was on holiday at the time, so we never did meet her until much later on when we took Pepper back for a visit, but Louise just knew it was the right time for her to come to us. Their job was done with our lovely new addition.
Since that day, we have had a few rough days and nights. But nothing drastic. She ripped up a cushion when we first left her in her own. She almost are her way through the living/dining room door when we left her to sleep alone at night. She even ran off with a whole joint of cooked roast beef, fork still attached ready for carving, on her first Christmas Day with us!! 🤣🤣 But overall, she has been amazing. She’s so so clever, has us in hysterics most days, and now loves nothing more than a fuss, cuddle and tummy rub every day…. several times a day!!! But we wouldn’t be without her. Not a chance. She’s our family, and we will always be grateful to her, for choosing us, and JFD for all the fantastic support and encouragement that we were doing a great job. Thanks everyone. We adore our Little Miss Pepper Monster.
PS. And yes, she came to us with a black nose, which turned pink due to weather depigmentation, and that is now ever so gradually turning back to black!!
PPS. Yes she definitely rules the roost!! Lol xx
