Pets are important family members. Here's Pepper, our twelve year old Black lab, with Katherine.
Pepper grew up with the girls.
Pepper works outside of the home. He's my co-therapist in my psychotherapy practice. Pepper helps people relax and feel welcome, especially children or new people who are feeling a little nervous. At various times he's been called "Dr. Pepper," "Pepperoni," "Pepsi," and "The Pep."
Our family also has four cats! Starting at the top and going clockwise, here's Mango, Tiger, Pounce and Callie.
Elizabeth and Mango
Several years ago, Elizabeth got two small turtles, Fromage and Baguette. Now they've grown quite large and since Elizabeth went off to college, I take care of them. Taking care of turtles is a lot of work!
