Decoymans Piper Bordeaux of Tollpepper

 Pepper

 

Pet Name : Pepper

d.o.b. : 15 June 2003

 

Pepper was our first Toller and our introduction to the breed

She is a lovely natured girl and has always been a great pleasure to own. She can be totally frustrating as she will only do what she wants to hence her affectionate nickname - 'Mrs Lazy Knickers'.

Pepper did not enjoy being 'shown' so after her first two attempts we decided that it was not her forte. We have tried agility with her and on some days she was very good and in fact did get rosettes for her attempts, other days she looked at you as if to say 'why? what is the point?' Due to her age and her eyesight she finished agility competing at anysize where she enjoyed the lower jumps and could get a lovely clear round.

Pepper is also a registered PAT dog and proved to be a great success with the people she visited.

Sadly Pepper is getting older now and her life mainly involves sleeping and eating, her PRA has meant she has all but lost her sight and, as happens, with older dogs she is losing her hearing. However she is still with us and letting us know she is not ready to go yet.
