In l998, Mark and his family welcomed into their lives a half-Border Collie/half-Cocker Spaniel they named Pepsi.

Their lives would never be the same.
Sprite and Pepsi became fast friends; they did everything together. The Levin family fell in love with Sprite. But on Hallowe'en night, three weeks after joining the family, their beloved dog collapsed and had to be rushed to the vet. It was the first of many such visits and a long journey for the Levin family, filled with joy and anguish.
Sprite's health deteriorated, even as his spirits remained high and his gentle nature continued to inspire the family and the local community.
