From his Facebook:
Pepsi passed away at 3:30 pm eastern time today. He was the most precious and joyful dog a family could have. He now joins Sprite and Griffen. The world is a less joyful place today. He was with us nearly 13 years. They were the best years. Until about 3 weeks ago, he had the energy of a puppy.
Pepsi welcomed Sprite and later Griffen into the family. If you read Rescuing Sprite, you know all about him. His tail was always wagging and he always had a smile on his face. He loved everyone and was so darn smart. Pepsi never left my side. Now he’s gone.
Thank you all. As I build the strength to pick up all his toys and his bowls, I wonder if these tears will ever go away.
I need to tend to my family now. Won’t be back for a while. Thank you all again.
I’m never that good with words that I know what to say at times like these. I can only imagine how tough this is for Mark and all I can say is that we’re thinking about you Mark here at The Right Scoop. Many of us have gotten to know you because of your openness with us on the radio and it saddens me greatly to hear of your loss…the loss of another family member.
I will hug my kitties a little tighter tonight (even though they really hate getting hugs) as I remember you and your family. I think I can speak for all of us here in saying that we look forward to hearing your voice on the radio whenever you get back.
For now, here are a few photos of Pepsi from Mark’s pet blog:
May he rest in peace.
