Peppermint had an eye-opening experience earlier this summer. Yes, she’d put on a few pounds, but when her “grandmother” blurted out, “Wow, Peppermint, you’ve put on some weight since I last saw you,” it was quite a wake-up call. So, for the past month Peppermint’s been reducing her caloric intake and getting a bit more exercise. Today, with that mission in mind, she took a few turns around the yard with Cameron. But there was no doubt when she’d had enough of that “working out” thing—despite our calls, Peppermint made a beeline for the house, where a cool bowl of water, the A/C and her favorite couch awaited.
