Pepper is a 4-week old dachsund that we have just adopted. What with coming back for a longer stretch this time and the boys being at the right age to have a pet, we've been on the lookout for a small pet that could live in our apartment. We considered guinea pigs, rabbits, and small dogs, including terriers and beagles, but all were either too expensive or too far away.
When we saw his picture on the Russian version of craigslist here in town, we knew we had found the right one so we ran over and picked him up. The boys are quite excited, as you might imagine.
He's obviously still pretty tiny, and he has to eat 5 times a day, but he's doing well and will be well-loved I'm sure. Not much else to blog on, since we're just still in the routine of language study and getting the business up and running, but we did want to let everyone see our new addition!
