In Memory of my Best Friend, Pepper Girl.

As some of you have known, she had been ill since Christmas Eve. God was kind to allow us this extra time to say our goodbyes although no time seemed long enough.She sadly passed away last night. We will miss her terribly.

I would like to share with you my friends how wonderful she was.

She was a Frisbee dog, a pole weaver and loved fly ball. She would play Hide and Go Seek with the kids (one of her favorite games). She could balance a bone on her nose and then flip it up in the air and catch it when told to get it. She could heard sheep but we had to stop her excursions to the field because she would come home and try to heard the neighborhood children who didn't take too kindly to her nipping their heels. If you pointed your finger gun and said, "bang", she would instantly drop dead on the ground and not move until you said, "up". Not only could she sit, lay down, roll over, turn circles, give high fives but she could speak(bark) and say please (a long low growl)...and if she wanted something badly, she would say please over and over, if you asked for a kiss, she would give you one. She loved to pin my youngest daughter down and lick her clean! Ask Pepper, "Where is Mama?" and she would find me. "Where is Daddy?" and she would go get my husband. "Where is the baby?" and she would get my youngest child. Ask her if she wanted to go on a kitty hunt" and she would find the kitty's hiding in the bushes on our street.(she loved kitty's and would play with them). On our yearly RV trips, she always insisted on sitting on the front dashboard like a chihuahua..way too funny. She loved to go bye-bye in the car and went to school every morning with the kids. Birds were never allowed to land in our backyard as that annoyed her as it was HER yard. She followed me from room to room. Every morning as soon as my husband went to work, she jumped in bed with me. Pepper was one of those dogs whose head turned cockeyed when spoken too. The eyes focused on you and the eyebrows moved up and down..oh..the eyebrows. She was extremely loyal. I will miss my Pepper Girl.

Christie,

Awwww, I'm so, so sorry to hear you lost your best friend. I know how difficult and heart-wrenching this is.

What a wonderful and smart and fun dog! I know you will miss her terribly. You gave her all the love in the world, and she gave it right back to you. I'm praying for your family through this time.

Thanks for sharing Pepper with us and for honoring her memory in such a nice way through these stories about her.

Christie, I'm so sorry about Pepper Girl passing. She looked like a very kind and sweet dog. I know how hard it is to lose your best friend. You will have times when you think you hear her walking, or when you come in from outside expecting her to greet you. I hope that in time you can remember her with laughter instead of the tears. She knows how very much she was loved and she appreciates all that you did to make her life great. I'll be praying for you and your family. Thanks for sharing her pictures and also her story. I had to chuckle about her sitting on the dash of the RV, and her jumping into bed with you after your hubby would leave for work. Dogs are just the best!

sorry to hear that Pepper Girl is gone. Much love to you and the family. It is so hard to let go our fur babies. Sounds like Pepper had an awesome family that loved her as much as she loved them.

Christie, I'm so sorry about Pepper Puppy! She's running around heaven now, whole and strong, and when it's your turn to go, you'll see her again! You did the right thing, my friend. Cold comfort, but true.

Rob H - Your rottie's face looks just like my Aladdin's. We had him for seven years and he was so loved and he had the sweetest personality. Thanks for making me smile today.
