I am sorry for your sadness. What a wonderful tribute of photos. I really loved watching your sons change over the years with Pepper! I have two sons and it made me smile a little and cry a little for all of the years that have passed. The journey of life has some difficult times...this is one of them. Sorry!
What a great time your Pepper had. So sorry.
So sad. I know every time we've lost a dog, I've sobbed for days. Will keep you in my thoughts.
This saddens my heart. Take care.

It's hard to lose a family member, even when they're of the 4-footed variety. I'm so sorry Pepper is gone, I know you must miss her. Thank you for sharing those wonderful photos.

Debbie, So very sorry to hear this news!! I can't imagine your sadness! We have only had our little dog two years and I hate to think when something happens to him and you had your little Pepper for almost 16 years! Thoughts and prayers to you and your boys, Kathryn from Kansas
what a beautiful dog. I'm so sorry for your loss. You've had too many of them the last year or so.

Debbie--So sorry for your loss; it's so hard to lose them, after everything they come to be to us. Thank you for sharing your remembrance of Pepper with us.
I'm so sorry!
Debbie, so sooo sorry. From a fellow dog lover (and first time poster, long time lurker) in Wisconsin.
Pepper obviously had a wonderful life and a loving family. I feel your pain. I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry to hear about your sweetie. Dogs bring so much to our lives. Kitty
Oh Deb, I am so sorry...Pepper looked like a sweet, loving little dog. Your heart must ache so. I am sending you hugs and hope that all your memories of your little friend are wonderful.
It's obvious that Pepper won the "people lottery" when she got to come and live with your family. You gave her a great life - never forget it's the little things we do every day for the people and animals we love that are the true measure of our lives. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photo tribute. From JulieG in snowy Seattle, a longtime reader of your blog
How heartbreaking! So many "Pepper" moments and memories.
Debbie,You have had so many changes in your life this past year (or two) and have handled them with grace. I am sorry that Pepper died. This dog was a happy, loved, impish member of your family. My sympathies to you and your loved ones.Sue
Beautiful pictures! My heart aches for you and I'm happy to know whe had a good life!
Debbie..I am so sorry for your loss. Our pets are wonderful friends and "members of the family"...my thoughts are with you during this sad time.
