The Newest Member of the Family

After Barkley passed away we were going to be a one dog family.  Things were going so well with just BB and she was able to go everywhere and she was just the best dog ever.  Ever.  And then Zach discovered duck hunting and just HAD.TO.HAVE a labrador retriever.  He found the one that cost the most had the best hunting lines and reserved her.  Pepper has been costing us warming our hearts since day 1.
 Sweet, sweet kisses with that puppy dog breath.  This might be the sweetest thing I've ever seen.
In all honesty, I really didn't want another dog.  I didn't want to spend the money, have the responsibility, do the potty training, deal with chewing and destruction, get up at night any more than I already do, and find one more thing to give attention to.  But, she's pretty dang cute and I fell in sort-of love with her pretty quickly.  (As a side note, since I'm writing this blog WAY behind...don't ask me how I actually feel about her this second in time...)

The other family member that we had to worry about was BB.  Would she like her new little sister or be just as annoyed with her as Jenn is now?  The progression of their relationship is below:

First Meeting

Getting To Know Each Other Slowly

Finally Getting Snuggly

Full On Playing and Becoming BFFs

It must be rough being so dang cute.  Zach bought Pepper this duck toy on the first day he got her.  She LOVES this toy and chews it daily.  Almost to the point of wondering if she has an obsession with this duck.  She's a duck dog for sure.  And she seems to like shoes, and stuffed animals, and soccer gear as well...
