Being a dog mom changes you. Suddenly, your priorities become focused on an adorable ball of fluff. It’s kind of like entering a special cult where you suddenly worship your pet and his/her needs. Some people manage to hide their deranged pet obsession fairly well — while others, on the other hand, are totally leaning into it.
Tommy Rivers was recently enlisted to watch his aunt’s dog, an adorable Pomeranian named Pepper (AKA, “The Most Beautiful Girl In The World”). Though the task sounds simple enough, the instructions Tommy’s aunt left behind were anything but.
Where to even start? The fact that Pepper isn’t allowed to have carbs? The fact that “sniffing” is one of the acceptable affection options? The fact that Tommy is required to send a photo of Pepper to his aunt every single day??
It’s all too much. And yet, it is also totally understandable, because just LOOK at this excellent dog:
You know what? I get it. Pepper is special. She requires special instructions.
Tommy shared a photo of the Pepper Care instructions to Twitter, where they quickly went viral. The tweet has been favorited over 135,000 times and has over 44,000 retweets.
Twitter was totally losing it over Pepper’s overprotective mom, and became equally invested in the dog’s well-being.
Clearly, Pepper is not only living her best life, she’s also inadvertently becoming an internet celebrity.
May we live as luxuriously as Pepper.
