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.
