Pepper the Courthouse Dog is in the finals for the Hero Dog Awards!

We're pleased to see that our very own Courthouse Dog, Pepper, is in the running for a Hero Dog Award.  Pepper is a key member of the DC Courts family; she helps comfort those with difficult days of testimony.

Win or lose, she's a hero to us and the court participants she helps get through difficult testimony and emotional court hearings.  If you'd like to vote for her, go to  and click on the Therapy Dog category.
