Alan. Thank you. I can't even read past the first paragraph right now but thank you for posting it. I will come back to it and really read it.

Right now all I seem to be able to do is cry but I know that grief will settle in and the floodgates of tears will lesson.Then I can think of all the joys this special dog brought into my life. I had a purpose in coming home every afternoon: to feed and love on Pepper. It is going to take some getting used to.... knowing there is not one waiting at the door when she hears the car locks beep. I know Susie feels that way too.

When we had stairs in our home, she loved sleeping like this. Funniest thing.

Thinking of you Becky and sending {{{ hugs }}} your way. So sorry to hear this news, but am glad you were there to comfort her as she began her trip to the Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks Susie...thank you all so much. We are such a dog group.
I went through pictures last night and I wish I had many more. Waking up this morning was so different...sad and lonely but I know we did the right thing for Pepper.

Dr, Katie is an amazing person...she even hugged me while I cried.

Bec,
I don't have backup on my computer. I went through all my images of Bert and saved them to CDs.... I'll never be able to take a pic of him again and I wanted to be sure I saved them. Just a thought.
Luv ya.

My FAVORITE pet growing up was our English Springer Spaniel... best dog we could ever have... so good with us kids, who tormented her... irreplaceable, and devastating when we lost her, but I can look back fondly now... I'm so sorry, again, Becky!!!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I think we are going to have to put down Max as he has hip dyplasia and can not walk so going to the bathroom has become a problem. Katie gave us some meds this morning so I will see how they work and then decide what to do.

I had dinner tonight with Barb and Susie and we all cried together. It's been a tough dog loss year! I miss the companionship of Pepper but I am healing day by day.

THANK you all so very very much for your hugs and support! Group hug

It has been three weeks since Pepper died and time does heal. I sure didn't think it would at first. I wrote a lot in my journal the first week so I was able to capture so many details that were fresh. I haven't read the journal and won't for a long time probably. Tears flow sometimes but that horrible pain has left and I can remember the good times with her.

In merging the 2 cubits tonight, I found that I had two "Pepper" threads. I am deleting the one from AZ Lifestyles as it was short but I had to copy and Paste this exchange between Susie's Bert and Pepper.
~~~

Hi Pepper!
This is your dream come true. Rolling Hills, Good Food, Memories of your Lady and family. You're missed, I'm missed, Spike's missed. All of us who've passed over the Rainbow Bridge will one day come together with our families...... And I know you miss Becky. We'll meet up with them someday.... Meantime, waggy tail and let's boogie!
~Bert.

(Love the glasses... can't remember where I put mine!)


Ahhhh Bert,

It's been nice getting to know you!
Thanks for thinking of me and liking my glasses. I like props of all kinds! Becky is painting our picture together with Spike for Dr. Katie's office! Libby just found out that I had to leave and she is having a hard time. I feel sad for her but she'll see me again one day. I do miss Becky and I know you miss your Susie. Time is different here and they'll see us "soon".

Pepper

I love that picture, Becky. Looks just like Pepper and looks just like the Rainbow Bridge. Bert is missed. Love Bert.
