I absolutely love this dog! I recently heard on WPR I believe, how your genetics play a part on whether you are a dog or cat person. Rather interesting as when I was young I had a few pet cats and was afraid of dogs after being bitten on more than one occasion.
I became a dog parent for the first time in my forties when we adopted a little old ten pound white with black spots Chihuahua/Rat Terrier we named Pepper for the kids but she seemed to prefer and adopted me lol.
Four years ago we adopted our second dog, a seventy pound just turned three years old white with black spots Australian Cattle Dog/Mountain Cur mix we named Cooper. I did seriously consider renaming Pepper Mini Cooper lol.
