Pepper on Xmas Day with a new bandana
When I first saw Pepper in a window shop with a horrible Brazilian football "dress" I fell in love with that little thing. As soon as I pick her up and she put her little paws around my neck and just went back to sleep, I knew I would have her.
Now, at almost 9 years old, she is my best company in the world. It is so good coming back from work to be received with happiness from a playful dog. Although all the Schnauzers look like they are angry they are the most cheerful breed I know. And as they say "This is my happy face"!
