Pepper went back to the SPCA display at Petco on Saturday for a second attempt at finding him a home. He gets more and more attached to me and he was definitely not happy to be put in a cage and have me walk away.
Ashley had asked me to take pictures of some of the dogs and every time I passed Pepper's cage, he set up a pathetic howl and tried to climb the wire mesh to get out of the cage.
I came home and around 5, Ashley returned with Pepper, who had not found a home and will be here for at least another week. He greeted me with a tail that was wagging a mile a minute and the kinds of vocalizations he hasn't made since he first arrived here, as if to ask me why I went off and left him in that awful place. He climbed into my lap, gave a huge sigh and fell asleep happily.
The dog has become much too happy here. (And I find myself surprised that I don't mind.)
