I'm new to the community and wanted to introduce me and my wonderful pup, Pepper. Well, she isn't really a puppy anymore...she's five. :)
Five years ago, I got Pepper (Shadow's Sgt. Pepper) from a very reputable breeder and she has a champion bloodline. I got to meet three generations of her family. I figured that gave me a good idea what to expect for her. WRONG! Pepper is my little mutant baby, and at some point she just stopped growing. I mentioned to someone in the group earlier that she measured 9" at the shoulders and weighed 9 pounds. It had actually been a couple of years since I measured and weighed her, so I did it just before posting. She is a grand total of 10 1/2" at the shoulders, and weighs a whopping _11 POUNDS!_. I guess I need to watch the food there *laugh*
We are a 'family' of six - Mom, dad, three year old twin boys, Pepper, and a Cairn Terrier named Barqs.
She started out as a normal enough puppy
But now she's a 'big girl'
And the only thing you can tell that she has a Merle daddy is a single blue eye - the other one is brown.
