PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The Jolly Green Pepper and the dog it will save will be at the Tractor Supply Store in Paducah on Sunday, July 21 at noon.
Nows your chance to meet the happy pepper which is for sale on eBay to raise money for Ru the dog, who needs heart surgery.
According to the post, the Jolly Green Pepper was born and raised in a garden in Paducah and currently resides in a refrigerator in the house he grew up behind.
As of Friday afternoon, the bid for the smiling pepper is up to $127.50.
Lisa Summers, the "pepper grower," said she came home from work on Monday and picked peppers while her husband picked the green beans. When she brought them inside, she said she initially thought she was the only one that would notice the "smiling face" on the pepper.
Summers said she posted a picture of the pepper on her Facebook page, never thinking it would catch on. Then, friends started commenting on it.
