5/1/2016 - 5/6/2016Big old Pepper went everywhere with my wife Bonnie for the first 8 years of his life. He was a constant companion and protector for her while they lived up in Washington. Then we Bonnie & I reconnected and she moved back to California with Pepper, he became my best pal too. He always had a sense of right and wrong and would try to make sure Bonnie & I were happy. For those last 5 years, he begin sleeping on our big King bed with us and then when he could not jump on the bed, he slept right next to it, sometimes by Bonnie & sometimes by me.

Then in the last 6 months he could not even climb stairs so stayed in our family room with access to the outdoor patio if we kept the door open. We spent many hours watching TV & on computers in the Family Room with our loving dog. But when he stopped eating and drinking last week, we had Dr. Amanda come to our home and put him to sleep in the most professional and caring manner possible. We miss good old Pepper so much and will never forget him. The Family room seems so empty now that he is gone!

I miss you so much Pepper.....Mama Short - May 13, 2016
We said goodbye to our precious boy Alby 10 days ago, we keep thinking we hear him. I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to Pepper. It's okay to be sad, it's okay to shed tears, I'm fine with it. It helps the healing:)Deb Johnson - May 11, 2016
