Pick me!





**GIVEAWAY OVER** 





 
I'm cute, right? Women love mustaches. I've been told that salt and pepper hair is a sign of maturity and some women like it. As a bonus, my hair is nice and soft, not wiry like some of my kind. 

Hey, here comes someone to look at us. The lady who takes care of all of us is doing that slow walk next to all our cages. That means the woman with her might just take me home. Boy, would that be nice. I'd love to sleep in one of those beds and be able to run around again. Not that they don't take care of us here, but I have to share. 

Yip! Yip! Grrr...I have to stop that jumping up. It's like my paws have their own mind. They spring up when I get excited. Stop jumping. Stop jumping. Well, at least stop jumping until we can get a home, I have to remind my paws. Then we can jump all we want.

 Come on down here. You are obviously in the market for an adorable grey haired Schnauzer, I yipped louder when I saw that she'd stop down at the poodle cage. Poodle, smoodle. Come see me! I'm much happier and less maintenance. I mean, I do like to be bathed and groomed, not to mention rubbed on. Not that poodle! She's trouble with a big T.

"I don't know," the woman said. "I do want the company and it'd be fun to have companion at the Bean Hive with me."

Retreat. Retreat. My paws don't seem to be listening, they kept jumping. She said bees. Retreat!

Umm...maybe not the owner for me. I'm definitely not fond of the bee insect. Once, I'd gotten in a little scuffle with a few of them and I think they won after they made my lip swell up bigger than my head. I couldn't eat and I love to eat. I got a shot from the veterinarian and that did hurt. 

"You own the Bean Hive Coffee Shop?" My caregiver asked the woman. They were still walking my way.

"I do." She has a sweet smile. Her eyes are kind. But I don't like bees. 

"I heard you have the best coffee. The name of your shop, The Bean Hive, is adorable." My caregiver walked down the center aisle. The woman nodded and looked in the cages before me. 

The Bean Hive. I yipped and jumped around. Not the bee hive. Shoowee, that was a relief. 

"Why do you want a dog?" My caregiver always asks this question. 

"I'm single. I just moved here and opened the shop. I'd like to have a companion that will alert me of customers if I'm in the kitchen of the shop or even if someone comes lurking around my cabin." The woman lovely voice perked up my ears. 



Single? Did you say single? I yipped. 

Don't get me wrong, if I had to live in a house with kids or other animals, I'd chew on my rawhide and make the most of it. 

Hey! Hey! So I have a loud yip. What's wrong with that? See! I can protect you with this bark!

Sit, sit, sit. Thankfully my hinny listened. My little nubby tail wouldn't stop wagging back and forth. What's wrong with my head? It keeps moving left and right. Wait. Now what is wrong with my tongue. I questioned my body's reaction when the woman stopped at my cage. It was like I'd been possessed. 

"Is this a Schnauzer?" She asked. I looked back at my tail in fear it was going to wag right off of me. "I heard they bark a lot."

Tongue in. Don't bark. Don't jump. 

"He's a good dog. His last owner moved overseas in the military. He's been here a while. Not many people are adopting these days." My caregiver always said this. 

"Really? Maybe we can do a fundraiser or adoption party between the SPCA and The Bean Hive?" The lady seems nice. 

No. No jumping. 

"Whoa, he can jump." The woman laughed. "What's his name?"

"Pepper." My caregiver is a nice lady but this woman seems to think I'm cute. "He's sweet. Would you like to see him?"

"I would." The lady backs away. 

You want to see me? Stop it! Stop jumping. Tongue, back in my mouth. Stop wagging. What is wrong with my body? It's not listening to me!

Oh....you smell like food. You smell yummy. My nose smelled her shoes, her pants. You smell like heaven. 

"Oh, my. He's a snuggler." The lady giggled the cutest giggle I've ever heard. 

"You want to try him out?" My caregiver said that about other dogs but never me. 

Try me out! Try me out! I danced around her feet. 

"Pepper, you want to come home with me?" The lady couldn't get it out fast enough. I jumped right up in her arms before she could change her mind.

After a bitter divorce, Roxanne Davis (her friends, though few call her Roxie) has moved back home to Honey Springs, Kentucky where she's opened the tourist lakefront town's first coffee house, The Bean Hive. 

With the excitement of the Bean Hive opening and rush of business, Roxie is moving on with her life until she finds that one of her best customers, Lilia Walters, was found dead after eating one of Roxie's best-selling doughnuts after Roxie's aunt Maxine gave Lilia as a peace offering.


Gossip in Honey Springs is as hot at the coffee served at the Bean Hive and Roxie has to uncover who is behind the murder not only to save her shop, her aunt, but her life.

  1. Scooter and Charlie are adoreable! My husband and I have two cats. Cosmo is Siamese and he was originally a cat our oldest daughter got from a friend. Sammy is a our rescue cat. She's a black and white domestic. She marched into my husband's work one morning, he fed her with some of his sandwich and then brought her home at the end of the day.

  12. All my pets (cats) but one have been rescues of one kind or another. The one exception is our red Abyssinian. We saw our first one many years ago and fell madly in love with the look.
    But the price of a pedigree cat was not realistic.
    Fast forward to a few years ago and we got our pretty boy.

  13. I had a special needs dog named Stitch that my sister gave me for my birthday one year. Stitch had been born with two deformed back legs, but that never stopped her from doing anything. She could climb over anything and stairs were no problem. She was a black lab with a lot of love and spirit. We had the and a half great years together and I miss her so much.

  22. When I was younger, my mother put an order in with a friend for a pup from a Boston Bull litter soon to be born. My father had one when he was young (Patsy), and my mom thought we would love it, too. But the Boston Bull mom went through a false pregnancy (what that is and how it could happen, I don't know), but another friend of the family just happen to became owners of a litter of Boxers, so Mom picked out the runt of that litter, and 'Casey' became a member of our family. Through ear bobs, vacations, ice cream and marshmallows, black widow spider bites, and run-ins with a skunk, we were treated to the 'bestest' of friends!

  25. We have three kitties, Ronnie, Harry, and Midori. Dori was given away by a young man standing in front of a grocery store, Ronnie came to us after our neighbor passed away, and Harry was adopted from the Manatee County humane society. I adore dogs and we have had 6 Pomeranians over the years. We're at our pet limit where we live now, so probably no more dogs. Pepper is a darling name and I am looking forward to this new series. Blessings. :)

  33. We have two dogs, one is mine. Trixie, a little Chihuahua mix. My adult daughter found her running around in a parking lot and brought her home. No one claimed her so she became my daughters' dog (in theory only because Trixie claimed me as her person lol). Our other dog is a mixed breed, not sure what maybe some Chihuahua, Dachshund, just not sure. Her name is Rosie. She's medium sized. She came to us in a very strange way. One night when we were all asleep, someone left her in our backyard. She was wearing a new collar with pink ribbon roses on it and they had left a bag of dog treats and canned dog food near the back gate. We got up that morning to find her in our yard and she was so cute and so sweet and really needy (she has serious separation anxiety) and we decided to keep her because our previous fur babies had passed away and we were dogless at the time. We didn't even know how much we needed Rosie until we got her. My youngest grandson is on the autism spectrum, which we didn't know at the time, and he was nearly 4 and not talking yet. His first real word was Rosie. I call her our doggy angel. She's 8 or 9 now and she's been such a blessing, both of our dogs have really. Sorry for the long comment. I really love our dogs.

  34. Actually, I was making soup one day, and heard this strange noise outside. I look and there was the emaciated cat out there. She could hardly walk, her milk sacs were hanging down so I knew she's had kittens. So I gave her some broth and water, rubbed her tummy, and told her to bring me her kittens...to make a long story short, 4 days later, she brought me three little kittens that were about 1 1/2 weeks old. I kept Sabrina and two of her kittens and now the kittens are going to be 20 years old in May!

  35. We have 2 Labs , Bobbi Mae & Sadie. My husband is a hunter so we usually get our girls from a Breeder. I previously had a horse as well. If I lived in the country, I would have a barn full of pets. I love them all so much.

  36. Currently, we have four cats. However, my husband is a dog person. Our last dog was a German Shepherd, his pet of choice. Three of our cats were abandoned when the people next door moved and one of my older cats (who has since passed) brought me the kittens.

  37. I have a house full of dogs, they are my fur babies! :) I got two of them from people I knew who were giving away dogs and then I did the wrong thing and let one get pregnant and I had a hard time letting go of the babies and kept three...lol.

    Can't wait to read this new series!!! :)

  47. We had planned on going to the shelter when a friend mentioned that their dog had 9 puppies. So my daughter and I went to check them out all of them were out jumping and running around except one. The runt was in the cage curled up in the corner looking sad. We picked her up and she snuggled right in our necks. We thought yep she's the one. My daughter had a name picked out before getting the dog Charlotte Raye but we call her Charlie. She's a boxer pit and turned 5 in June. My spoiled baby!

  48. Both of our cats came from people who were looking for homes for their litters. Romeo Luigi came from a home of a church
    parishioner where I worked. Ralphie Lee was adopted by my daughter from a family who were moving and couldn't take their
    new litter of kittens. I love them both whether they were pedigree or just come from somebodies home.

  51. My little girl is a rescue. Saw my new neighbor abusing a kitten. I told to her about my daughter wanting a puppy and how cute her kitten was and how I explained to my daughter about the proper care and treatment of an animal if she wanted a pet. Hoping she'd get the hint. She didn't. Next time I saw her outside being mean to the kitten I spoke to her about that. And that we are supposed to talk to the authorities if we see people abuse animals so she might want to be more careful with how she treated the kitten. A few days later happened to see her down the road. She threw something into the neighbors field. After she was out of sight I climbed the fence, saw it was definitely the kitten she'd thrown. Took 2 days. But my daughter and I finally caught the kitten. She was all tooth and nail. She was a little leary of the dog we had just gotten. And terrified of having anything to do with me or my daughter. It took 4 months before she would relax around us. A little bit longer, she decided she could trust me, she made it plain that she was MY cat. I could pet her. Pick her up. That was it. She tolerated my daughter. But was tooth and nail with anyone else. Our house is built like a cracker box. Long and narrow. The doors from the front room, to the kitchen, the dining room and one of the bed rooms are almost in line. I was in the habit of doing the months shopping all at once. Once she decided she could trust me she was willing to be in other rooms of the house if I was there. It was our shopping day and as usual we hauled in the groceries (in plastic bags) dropped then on the floor in front of the couch and on the couch which was near the kitchen door. I would take things out of the bags, leaving them their on the floor while I went into the kitchen to put things away. All of a sudden she came tearing past me with a plastic bag handle looped around her neck and bellowing out behind her. I was shocked and dismayed at my thoughtlessness. Poor thing is terrified. It took some maneuvering. But I finally caught her and removed the bag. She gave me such a look of reproach. I was crushed. Certain she would never trust me again because of my carelessness she could have been killed. Promised myself that in the future I would be more careful about where I left the plastic bags. But by the first of the next month? I had forgotten and left the bags on the floor. Again. She came tearing past me running full tilt from one front of the house to the back. Again. I was crushed. I had endangered her with my forgetfulness. Took some effort. But finally caught her and removed the bag. This time I was determined not to forget. But the third time? As I walked into the front room to empty another bag I caught her deliberately fitting her head into the handle of the plastic bag. She saw me and quickened her pace and took off flying through the house. Then I understood. That look of reproach I had received the last 2 months? Was because I was 'putting a stop' to her game of playing super hero. But I had learned my lesson. I was far more careful of plastic bags lying around and I let her play, with supervision. Plastic bags remained a part of her playing routine until her death 17 and a half years later. In the meantime I had adopted another kitten. Who is terrified of the sound of plastic bags though I am certain she has never had a bad experience with them. She would watch Chelsea playing with them as if Chelsea had lost her mind. And if they are just lying around she will lick them. I think it is the coolness of the texture. But you move one, rustle it. She runs from it. Della at deepotter@peoplepc.com

  52. We got our sweet boy Hotch from one of our customers. He is a Yorkie and I love him to the moon. I had gone with my Fiancé to help him with an install that he had for the day. I spotted Hotch (Tiny at the time) and fell instantly in love. I told his owners that if they ever decided to get rid of him I'd love him. A few months later they called. I have never been happier.

  55. My little girl Sadie Grace is a rescue from the Humane Society. We adopted her in May after our little Westie Boy Sami crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 17. It was a sad time for us and we couldn't wait to get a new little fur baby to love. Sadie was a perfect match. She's small, mixed breed (at least some Shi Tzu we think) under a year old when we got her, and yet someone had house trained her and she has never chewed on anything in our house but her own toys. She was picked up as a stray and she was one huge hair mat all the way to her skin with stickers and burrs all matted in. She really had to be shaved down. She didn't have a collar and she wasn't micro-chipped and nobody has any idea how she came to be out on her own. I'm just glad she was found and was in good health. She's all ours now and we love her dearly!!

  57. I have a shih tzu named Zoey. She was born with an underbite that meant she would have a difficult time breeding. She wasn't wanted because of it. I took her home instead of the alternative. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I had moved across country, leaving behind everyone I loved. A domestic violence situation made that the best option for me and my adult children. I was putting them and my parents in danger. While it was the best decision, it was the saddest and loneliest. I didn't know anyone in my new town. Zoey became my best friend. She helped with my loneliness, even helping me find new friends, (something I wasn't able to have for 16 years and had no idea how to make them). She helped me with self esteem and with depression. She is still my best friend. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for placing her in my path. I hope that I have made as much of a positive impact in her life as she did mine. I know she is considered a rescued dog but, honestly, she is who rescued me.

  59. Earlier this year we adopted 2 guinea pigs from "Best Friends" about 5 hours away, it was the only shelter in our state with guinea pigs at that time. They are very sweet, definitely more work than we thought they would be...but those little faces are worth all the extra work. I get sad this time of year because I know there are so many animals out in the cold without homes. We always go to the shelter or rescue abandoned animals, I wish we could take them all. Send Pepper on over! =)

  60. About 10 days ago, my sister and I adopted a 5-year old black lab. A friend found him wandering around in her neighborhood. She located the owners but they didn't want him back. We are totally in love with him. He is well-behaved, well-trained, and so sweet. I don't understand why the owners didn't want him anymore. Their loss is our gain!

  61. Jesse (tabby) was left at our vet's office and he came home with me pretty fast. Abby (tabby/white) was found at friends apartment and she couldn't keep her so we took her in. Our daughter came home with Molly (our only orange cat) for me for my birthday. Bo (tabby) came into our house as a foster and never left. Little did we know that Bo was not neutered and Molly wasn't spayed and they had our very first born baby into our house. Little Miss Bailey (tabby mostly with touches of orange) was the only kitten. Bailey and Bo are best friends. No more kittens in our house. But I sure do love my fur-kids.

  66. My husband and I keep bunny rabbits. It started close to 20 years ago when he noticed that there were always ads for free bunnies with cages and food after Easter. At one point we had 10. He has his in hutches in the yard. I have mine in cages in the house. My 2 house bunnies are Coco and Scotchy. They are small bossy mini lops who weigh 2 or 3 pounds apiece.

  68. I have 2 rescue cats and 2 rescue dogs (beagles)---I love them to pieces. The cats are easy to find at the local shelter---but beagles are hard to find here in Minnesota and I had to go to the city to find them at a shelter that brought them in from Kentucky.
    Thanks for the contest.

And we have a cat who came to us by chance when a customer at my husband's shop (they customize cars) brought him in because he talks too much. (insert snide comment here) He's wonderful and we love listening to him talk...not so much at 4 am but still, we love him. :)
