Tail Tales: Sheena Halili


My 4-year Chihuahua Pepper is the baby of our family. She’s the one who wakes me up so we can eat together at lunchtime. I personally bathe and groom her. I’ve taken her to the groomer only twice. I’m scared that she would get hurt. I take her to the vet but not very often because she’s not sickly. She’s adorable and sweet. When I come home after being away for days at work, she meets me at the door dancing, showing me how much she misses me. When I’m unhappy, she shares in my sadness, too. I see that she feels my pain in the way she looks at me. She can also be cranky and protective. She’s very picky about the people we let into our house. If she doesn’t like someone, she won’t stop barking. But if she approves of a guest, she can be affectionate at once. She gives me happiness and unconditional love. Bayani San Diego Jr.
