So, one of the nearby neighborhoods to mine has a couple of facebook community group pages – one for crime watch and lost pets and another for general community conversation. Recently, a large percentage of the posts are about people finding the same dog roaming loose over and over again. His name is Pepper. Everyone in the neighborhood really likes Pepper, but no one wants to see the poor pup get hit by a car or suffer some other mishap, so people take Pepper in on what seems to be a weekly basis. He always gets returned to his owner, but the owner isn’t very good about keeping Pepper from escaping again.
Some neighbors have suggested Pepper needs his own adventure story and others are just hopeful that Pepper will find a new home with a more responsible owner. Since Pepper’s been on my mind lately, I thought I’d do a little illustration of him. I know you all are waiting impatiently for my next Person, Place, Thing, and I promise that is coming soon. Probably tomorrow.
But for now… here’s Pepper 🙂
