|Pepe jumping on my belly when I was pregnant with Jake|
Little did I know that little three-pounds-of-canine Pepe would steal my heart the way he did. Never having a dog before, it was hard to know these things.
He was neurotic but happy; co-dependent but sure of himself as a vicious protector (much to our amusement). He was our baby, our family mascot of sorts. Puppies have a way of sucking up all the attention in the room and he did that often.
