Sweet Spirit

Fortitude with joy
Unwavering sweet spirit
Special canine child

Dedicated to the gentle spirit of Tippy!


My sweet girl, Tippy, has taught me so much in the years she has been with us.  Her needs are simple and have always been simple — to love and be loved, to live in the moment, and live life with gratitude. Her last days are filled with perseverance.  Her legacy will remain with me for the remainder of my days.  It has been an honor to be her guardian.
