General Pepper


I had an awful dream that my dog, Pepper, died. But it was also the stupidest dream I've ever had.

I dreamed that my dog was fighting in the Civil War. And she was a General or Colonel. I don't know what side she was on, but the two sides were in a large grove of trees marching towards each other. The other soldiers in Pepper's batallion were upset with her because she was not on a horse. They were yelling at her and telling her to get up on her horse so that she wouldn't get killed. And then she got shot. She lay there coughing. . .

Just then Pepper jumped on me in real life and woke me up.

When I woke up I was sad at first because I had a dream about her dying, but as the dream came back to me I realized how completely absurd it was. And then the war nerd in me came out because in real life the Generals are NOT supposed to be on a horse, because that makes them an easier target. Nerd. Such a ridiculous dream.

SO ridiculous that you actually know that about the generals. Sorry your dog got shot, but this was fucking hilarious.
