The pic titled "Happy Pepper" is one of him when he just turned 17 years old. He's wearing a pig necklace we got from a local BBQ competition, but I like this photo because it shows him how he usually was...smiling and happy, even at the age of 17, and even towards the very end at 18 years he still had a happy grin many times.

The pic titled "Pepper Eating Buffet Style" was one we took when he was around 14 years old. When Pepper was a puppy, he used to hate eating. He would often leave his food in the bowl for days and only eat when he finally broke down and got really hungry. We would do everything to try and entice him, but for some reason he would often sniff his food and walk away. It wasn't until he was around 12 or 13 when he finally had a good appetite, and he consistently ate 2 meals a day. One day, we brought home a new bag of food and as soon as we poured it into the storage bin, he went straight for it and just started eating from the top. We were so amazed because it had taken us a good 12 years before we could get him to eat anything that to see him eating straight from the food bin was a happy site for us.

The final picture called "Pepper Waiting" was a classic one of how Pepper would wait for one of us to come home. He was about 12 years old in this picture. He had this tendency to wait by the door just holding one shoe in his mouth. He would never chew the shoe, he just held it in his mouth to greet us when we came home. And it got to the point where he would actually bring the correct shoe depending on who was coming home. So if Phil was out and then came home, Pepper would grab one of Phil's shoes and greet him. If it was me that was out and coming back, Pepper had one of my shoes in his mouth to greet me. He would often get so excited that he would snort while holding the shoe in his mouth and prance around the room for a while every time we got home. It was a great way to be greeted.
