Meet Hot Pepper!

The sadness of losing Alec in May 2008 was overwhelming.  Pepper doesn't replace Alec, but he makes it easier to move forward.  He's a dear little Scottie, stubborn, sweet, a little timid but very good with people and other dogs.

Pepper barfed all over mom three times on the way home in the car, and twice on his first trip to Block Island, but he seems to have largely gotten over the motion sickness and is well on his way to being a Sea Dog. 

Hot Pepper was born at the Rococo Kennel in Uxbridge, MA on March 6, 2008.  We picked him up and brought him home on May 20.  He was with us until June 18, when we drove him back to Camp Rococo while we sailed in the Newport Bermuda Race.  When we picked him up again on July 8 he barfed his way home again, but seems to be settling in to the routine at the Beard household and aboard ESMERALDE.

We hope you will meet Hot Pepper cruising up and down the coast of New England!

Pepper absolutely CHARMS the tourists at Mystic Seaport.  He had to check out each one he saw, as if they were the attractions...
