Last Monday, we had to say good-bye to our sweet Pepper. Our hearts are broken. We were amazingly fortunate to have her in our family. She was a cuddler and a kisser, a nurse when the kids were sick, a best friend, and a goofball. She stopped to smell the flowers and noticed airplanes in the sky. She loved cookies, car rides, sunshine, and ear rubs. Most of all, she loved the kids, her brother Thistle, Jim, and me. Pepper made our world brighter. She was a beautiful life. We love her and miss her.

Pepper loved being a pillow for the kids. She would sometimes go into our son's room when he was asleep and nudge his pillow out of the way so she could take its place. The other dog in the photo is our beloved Jack, Pepper and Thistle's uncle.
