Pepper wanted to carve a pumpkin. I told her, “No, you’re only 4 months old. I don’t think you’re ready for that.” For a moment, her spirits sank and her head hung low. Then she looked at me with those puppy dog eyes and said in her most humble voice, “I know I am only a small black puppy of uncertain parentage, but I think I can do it.” Well, she played me like a fiddle. Bringing in her parentage like that. Looking at me with those puppy dog eyes. How could I refuse?
Now I have to apologize. Nice kitty pumpkin, Pepper! I’m sorry I doubted you. Happy Halloween to all, from Pepper and me! And cheers to a pup who thinks she can.
