Too many goodbyes as we head towards another decade. Pepper departed peacefully at the vets office where we were fortunate to comfort her as she disembarked. Seems humans can learn a lot from dogs and from Pepper in particular.
She endured a lot in her youth, yet she maintained enthusiasm for each day and practiced a barely-in-control brand of excitement that regularly threatened the existence of various collectibles and drinking glasses.
Memory is the best and worst of our lot. She’ll be missed by many.
