Peppy


I had a special pet named Peppy. I got him when I was 6 years old. Peppy was a terrier shepherd mix. He used to love to sit in my lap. He used to race me in the back yard. He loved to do that! He was very protective of us. One time we were watching a horror movie and a woman screamed. Peppy tried to break the door down because he thought we were hurt. One day, Peppy got hit by a car. He lived but it broke his pelvis. Mom and dad decided not to put Peppy to sleep but nurse him back to health. So, the long healing process began. One day, as Mom and Dad were coming in the door with the groceries, Peppy bolted out the door and down the street. Peppy was not completely healed, though. Whenever he had to go to the bathroom, it hurt him very bad. After a couple of years, my Mama couldn't stand to see him suffer any longer. She had him put to sleep.

Whenever I would call i would always ask about him. My mama said,'' I wish you hadn't ask that question!'' She told me they had put Peppy to sleep that day. I squalled my eyes out! I was 16 but I cried like a little girl! Peppy will always hold a special place in my heart! One day, I will see him again! The dog in this picture is not Peppy but it looks similar to him. I will try to find a picture of Pepsi Cola 7 Up Dog.
