Second Helpings (transcript of podcast):

Our first child was a dog — a spunky border collie/black lab named Pepper – and we loved her.

A child and a half later, though, with me eight months pregnant, Mark suddenly “between jobs”, major home renovations underway and an energetic twenty month old to chase after, something had to give and that something, unfortunately, was Pepper.

There were tears all around when we said good-bye to our beloved pooch but our then twenty-month-old daughter rebounded beautifully. And that, we thought, was the end of that.

We thought wrong.
