My mom called. She put Pepper to sleep this morning. I guess Tuesday morning she was her normal self (though that doesn't say much for such an old dog) and by evening when my mom got home from work and Pepper couldn't walk well. She couldn't use her right back leg well and she couldn't make it down the stairs or jump up on the chair. She also said she couldn't open her mouth to eat, even bologna. I think it sounds like she had a stroke when nobody was watching. We've had her for 14 years. Its going to be strange going home without her there. She had a peaceful ending though.
