March Letter from the Publisher

By Jenn Rich | Mar 01, 2022

Dear Dog News Readers,

Here it is, March already, and of course I have not completed all my indoor winter tasks I had hoped to accomplish before spring. As I mentioned last month, I did decide to buy Pepper a coat for the really frigid days and then I started thinking, that by making her warmer and more comfortable, I’m probably stretching our bathroom breaks on the days when the wind is howling and I am getting pelted in the face with snow or sleet. I swear the cold and the weather do not faze her. Of course, I’d rather keep her warm, and she looks so cute in it!

I don’t know if you watched the Puppy Bowl, but we did, and it is just too adorable. I felt bad for a couple of the pups because they looked scared. Hopefully, they took them off the “field” once they were off camera. I got up towards the end to do something, and apparently, I must have missed a dog from the Animal Refuge League. What a bummer! I would have loved to cheer her on. If you’ve never seen it, all they need to do to score is cross the goal line with any of the several toys on the field. I feel like Pepper would rack up some points quickly because she’d probably grab a ball and not want to drop it for fear that someone else would take it.

We just found out that Pepper is going to have a new puppy cousin in about four weeks! My brother and his girlfriend are getting a Chocolate Lab pup. I don’t think he has a name just yet, but I saw photos of him, and they are so sweet. I can’t wait to meet him! Speaking of cousins, Happy Birthday to Miss Phoebe, one of Pepper’s other doggie cousins, who turns four this month! Sometimes it feels like time goes by so quickly.

Have a great March, and soon we will look forward to the first of the spring flowers!

All the best,

Jenn and Pepper
