More Sad News

My cousin Tippy was a wonderful dog ~ very loving and snuggly with Grandma and very protective of her too. He helped her get through some hard times and she loved him a lot. We all loved him almost as much as Grandma did. Sadly he got very sick with a big tumor in his tummy.

Grandma said Tippy did not seem to be in any pain. Although he had not eaten very well for several days he finally ate a good breakfast and enjoyed a short walk with Grandma on September 20. He stayed outside while she went inside for a while. When she went outside again she found that he had gone peacefully in his sleep.
