Good Bye Mr. P
It has taken me awhile to write this post because I tear up every time. Our beloved little dog Pepper, whose nickname was Mr. P, died last week. He was prescribed medication that we later found out isn't supposed to be given to dogs under 12.5 pounds and he died from the complications.
Mr. P was the inspiration behind the name of my booth, Mr. P's Emporium. A portion of the sales proceeds go to the rescue organization from which we adopted him. A photo of him is on the back my price tags.
Pepper climbed into my heart the first time I saw him. He was a cuddler, a killer of dog toys (which he would try to shake to death) and a joy to be around. His antics and personality always brought a smile to my husband and me. To say he will be missed is an massive understatement.
If you have furry child, hug them close. And if you are given medication for them, always read the product insert or check online to make sure it is appropriate for your dog or cat. Ask lots of questions. That's something that I wish every day we had done. The company that makes the medication was very specific on all of its materials that it wasn't to be given to small dogs, and that a blood screening should be done first. After doing some research online we found out we aren't the only ones who have gone through this with this medication. Vets don't always get it right. We found this out the hard way.
Good bye Mr. P. We love you.
