This is a letter I knew I would have to write some day, but I didn't dream it would be today... Pepper has been in the hospital for the past 6 days.  The vet was feeling hopeful for the few few days.  He had a high fever, lots of nasal discharge,  we hoped we were just dealing with a bad infection.    Thursday they placed a feeding tube, x-ray his head, levaged his sinus's.  His X-rays were telling a much different story.  He had cancer.  We felt that we might be able to manage it for a few months with steroids, but sadly that was not to be.  The vet called me this afternoon and said he is not doing well,  he is now having difficulty breathing,  come now.  When I got there he was doing worse than he had been doing 15 minutes earlier when she called...  I agreed he was now suffering, it was not fixable and we immediately euthanzied him.   He went very peacefully with me loving on him as he passed. He was quite the little character who will be missed by all that knew him. I am sorry
