A Farewell to my Best Friend.

Pepper the Spaniel. Easily distracted by smells, the whiff of a burger, behaves nicely in public, humps cushions at home. Loves attention indiscriminately, considers misandry as a mantra not based on merit or fault. Sits, eventually. Always gives high fives. Eats her dinner. Loves the sea. Always has time for kids and ice cream.

A pure gentle heart. Bruised deeply by conflict. The first one to notice sadness, wags her tail through her own pain and illness. Impeccable knack for finding great sticks.

My personal trainer, my listening ear, my best mate. The Best and Goodest Girl.

I’ll miss you. I’ll never stop missing you. You’ve always been there for me even when I wasn’t for you. I’m sorry. I love you.
