|Me and Pepper at BBC reception. I don't know why I look so grumpy there, I was actually feeling quite cheerful! Just one of those faces I suppose...|
And why, you ask? To audition for a new BBC3 show about badly behaved dogs. Being that Pepper barks incessantly, steals food, leaps on furniture, bullies the cats and thinks that hurling herself at someone, barking at the top of her voice (and that's a pretty big voice to get to the top of) and trying hard to shove them over is an appropriate way to greet both strangers and friends--well I thought she might qualify.
And despite me being kind enough not to take her on the train but get my dad to drive us down there, what did she do for me? Behaved beautifully, that's what. No barking. Not even a whimper. Jumped once, in a pathetic, girlie, please-like-me kind of way. Didn't even pee on the carpet.
