Unexpected sadness

Greetings -
Yesterday was a very sad day in the Hammons house as we said good - bye to our sweet Oliver.  Little did we know that a mere 12 hours later another precious baby in our house would cross over the Rainbow Bridge.
Pepsi joined our family 5 years ago as a foster that we were rehabbing back to health.  He had been tied to a tree by his previous owners for over a year and had scratched and chewed all his hair off of his back.  He had a horrible infection when we took custody of him and was ooozing this black mucus.  I remember picking him up from the shelter and driving him straight to Happy ReTales to give him a bath because I could not even make it home with him the smell was so bad.
Kenneth had come home from work and asked me what I had gotten us into this time.  The smell in our condo was awful but this little pup just wanted love.  He was sooo affectionate and so we would hold our nose and pet him and love him.  Little did we know that he soon would be a permanent fixture in the Hammons house!
Pepsi was the 4th and final puppy in our house!  Most would say that is 4 to many but for us he finished out or family perfectly.  He was an amazing companion to Touchet and got along with Oliver and Annie so well from day 1!
I do not know what happened in the wee hours that took his life but I do know that we will miss him like we miss Oliver.  We were blessed to call him part of our family for the past 5 years.
We love you Pepsi and we will see you again soon!!  You and Oliver take care and don't eat to many greenies!!

                  Our fab 4 with Oliver and Pepsi in the middle!  We will miss you boys!
