In Loving Memory of Pepper

It's been a rough couple of days for our family. We lost of Sweet Pepper Dog of 13 yrs. You don't truly understand the pain of losing an animal if you have never owned one. Our home feels empty without her! I'm so grateful we still have a dog to come home to. Miley our Giant schnauzer is 3 yrs. old and has begun to brighten our spirits, but it still feels different without Pepper.

Pepper was the first dog my husband and I picked out together. She was our baby prior to having kids. She showed us unconditional love and loyalty everyday!!!

Pepper was born and raised most of her life in sunny California were she came from a pure bred family of Schnauzers. Both of her parents were prize winning dog champions.

Our family moved to Colorado 5 yrs. ago and Pepper joined us on our new adventure. She experienced her first plane ride, camping in the mountains and snow!!!

Over the past few months we could see a big change in Pepper. Her energy level was declining and she seemed to sleep a lot. She just wasn't feeling well. About a year ago or so, we found out she had a heart murmur. Over time her heart started to enlarge which lead to congestive heart failure, which was starting to restrict her breathing. There just wasn't anything else the vet could do for our sweet doggie! She will forever be remembered as the sweet little doggie everyone loved!

Rest in Peace our Sweet Pepper Dog of 13 yrs. We truly feel blessed you were apart of our family. Thank you for your unconditional love and loyalty! We love you and will miss you Pepper!
