I had a bit of an adventure yesterday and it's all because of this cute little fellow. My sister Judy has been trying to find a puppy to adopt but, she lives in a smaller community in northern Arizona and every time she has tried she was just seconds too late.
My close friend David works for the Arizona Humane Society as the Senior Philanthropy Officer so I told my sister we might be able to find a puppy for her down here.
She was thrilled but she won't drive down here in the valley because our traffic is so awful and she just isn't used to it. So, I told her if she found one she wanted, I'd take care of all the arrangements down here and then meet her half way to make the exchange.
So meet Pepper, a cute little shih tzu - chihuahua mix. He is simply adorable.
Pepper was not too fond of riding in the car in that little crate. He made quite a fuss for about 30 minutes but finally tired himself out and went to sleep.
To the right is Pepper when I was saying goodbye to him after meeting my sister Judy in Anthem Arizona. I talked to Judy a little while ago and she said he's settling in but has been sticking pretty close to her.
It turned out to be an adventurous day but time spent with this cute little fellow was well worth it.
