So, of course, we must share our pooch with you.

This is our dog Pepper. She's an 8-year-old Mini Schnauzer who we've had since she was 8 weeks old. We got her when we lived and worked in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Her owner used to be a breeder, but she was stricken with MS and then cancer. Pepper was the runt of the litter and the last one left, and she could no longer care for her. So we took her home and we've never looked back!

She's super sassy and vocal; we talk back to her like she's a person. She's very protective, loves to swim and go for walks. She's also, what we call, the "dog mom" of the house. She barks at our two cats when they're misbehaving. In short, she knows whats up. Show us your furry friend in the comments!
