Arrival Story:
Tipper was handed kid to kid around a school as a puppy and then found her way to my sister she was going to turn her into the humane society when she thought of me. I had been caring for my mother and she had recently passed she said "I think a little friend might help cheer you up and she brought her over. I fell in love with the awkward little pup she had big legs and ears and a tinny body. None of us where sure how old she was until I took her to the vets she was still a pup of almost 2 months old. In her months with me she was very ill with a kidney stone very rare in pups I bought very expensive food for her for awhile. We couldn't get her fixed until either the stone passed or an operation was done to remove it she passed it during the night just before surgery she ran from my arms where she was sleeping and it was in the middle of a huge puddle on my floor I was fully ok with it because her tail was wagging away then the doctor said she was ok . tipper has been my best friend and acts like a young lady with a mischief streak . She loves to run and is always looking for escape from the yard to visit others but is always happy to see me when I come get her from a neighbors call she rarely gets out maybe a dozen times in 9 years but I can tell she is still looking, she also I think was the runt of her littler her mind is so food orientated she will get into trash if we left it out for even a second she is always staring at us while we eat and so on she can sniff out food anywhere, a friend had candy in his pocket of his jacket and she got it out of his pocket and she perfectly unwrapped it. another a holiday gift of white chocolates she opened the wrap and bag and unwrapped each and ate them that was 7 years ago now jackets and anything that might have candy is out of reach. she is so loving though I love her with all my heart and she always senses when I am sick and is right there with me snuggling as close as she can almost like she is the mom.

Tippers name well I had a hard time for days thinking of a name then I saw Tipper Gore on tv I looked at tipper walking clumbsy with her big legs and little body and try to bite an itch then falling over I looked back at tipper gore and then again at the tipped over pup and called out tipper come here girl and she ran right over with big sloppy kisses , thats my girl tipper,

well it has been awhile I think it has been hard because we lost our cat friends this past year both around 15 years of age they passed a couple mo. apart during the winter 2010 2011 also I am getting old I have trouble walking and moving about mom keeps a close eye on me. I am happy I still get very excited and bounce about like a pup just only not as high I get excited and full of happiness when dad gets home, for food, and just happiness. roof to you all hey chase a bone or ball for me I will just sit here for now near the warm heater and slowly get the squeaky noisy thing out of this stuffed toy. kisses from Tipper.

awww everyone is quite! Time for a nap I will say it is hard getting older it gets to hot outside for me, I so love laying in the sun but the humidity is to much but I keep trying. my bones creek and a bit slower getting up. Hey I still have great moments everyday when dad comes home from work I jump and run about tail waggin and meal time I do my hop about dance and every now and then I get one of those awful noisy toys and tear it up so to get to the squeaky then give it to mom for her collection so she can make more toys for us. and ya know napping is a great thing sleeping with the pup or at mom or dads feet wonderful warm moments have a great summer everyone roof rrrrroof
