Pepper Goes to the Farmers’ Market


Pepper in birthday hatGood news! My people finally brought me to the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market last week. I guess I’ve been such a good mentor to office puppy Sherman that they figured I’d be okay with other dogs too. Turns out the farmers’ market is one of the best places ever – I can’t believe my people have been holding out on me. If you’ve never been, you don’t know what you’re missing.

There were lots of kids dropping food everywhere. Some people even shared their breakfast with me on purpose. That never happens at home.

I liked it so much that I behaved perfectly. Well, I did growl at that one dog, but we got over it. Everyone was so impressed with me, that they dressed me up in a funny hat and took pictures with me all day. The hat was a little weird, but folks seemed really happy that I had it on so I humored them.

The other weird thing was that everyone kept saying ‘Happy 15thBirthday’.

Now I am 70 years old, which is 10 in people years not 15, but I was having such a good time that I didn’t tell them they were wrong! (Editors Note: Despite Pepper’s impressive grasp of math, she seems not to have understood that it was the land trust’s 15th birthday. Thanks to all of you who did understand and helped us celebrate.)

It was such a great day I just had to share it with all my fans. The only thing missing was a good game of fetch. Go check the market out for yourself and when you do, bring a nice stick for me to play with, okay?

The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market is open Sunday mornings from 9-1 through November 20th and is located on the Route 12 (Dvoor) Circle in Flemington, NJ.

    Does Pepper get to the market often?
