Meet Pfeffernüesse


The morning of day three began with an outdoor frolic. Last evening we had to put on our jacket, as the temperature dropped and storms were predicted.


Part of the afternoon was spent in the barn, waiting for the vet.


He said everything was just fine and dandy!


Mama and grandma each had to have a shot (just a routine one) and then it was time for a nap.


And guess what! I have a name...


See these little peppery spots on my tail? They've decided to call me Distelfink's Pfeffernüesse. I'll be called Pepper for short, which will probably be most of the time.


Pfeffernüesse is German for "pepper nuts." They're a kind of German cookies with spices and black pepper in them and covered with powdered sugar.

Oh so cute - and wow, I didn't know they had powdered sugar on them :o) So fitting for her! She sure looks like she is alert and interested in the world!

**hugs to the midwife, mama and grandma too -- at least virtual ones**

She is adorable. I showed my daughter the birthing photos all the way up to this one. Pepper is the perfect name. The cookies aren't bad, either.

Awwww, you can call her Pepper-Butt when she's bad.

Cute jacket! Don't let me catch you putting boots and a scarf on her, though.

While I like Pfeffernuesse, both the cookie and the young'un, it does seem like a boy's name. From the litteral translation, you know (pepper nuts).

I know, bad knitter, bad knitter!

*sigh* I want a Pfeffernuesse. Have you ever checked out cuteoverload.com? I bet they would love a pic of Pepper and her Mom.
