Pets of the Week: Pepper and Tiny



Pepper here, coming to you from Baltimore Humane Society where I am looking for a family to call my own. The good news is I’m not just gorgeous, I have a personality to match! I’m a really fun, active girl who likes to run around and play. It’s very cute to watch me get my zoomies and go, go, go! I also love treats, I will do just about anything for some. I’m also very smart. I know a few commands like sit and down and would love to learn even more with whoever adopts me. I will be a very fun, faithful companion. If you think we’d be a good match, please come and meet me soon!

An Old Dog Still Teaching Some New Tricks

The writer’s dog, Puck.

My old dog is deaf. Completely deaf. It is a strange thing to take care of a dog that cannot hear and we are learning together how to navigate this. We cannot be lazy with him at all. If we let him out in the back yard and he goes crazy barking at the rabbit and fox, we’ve got to be prepared to trek out to get him, positioning ourselves so that he can see us. We have to make hand signals to tell him to be quiet. Remarkably, he seems to understand these.
