My Best Friend in the World...

Until I was Three,Tippi watched over me.  When I was Four, Tippi followed me everywhere. Then I was Five, Tippi would not leave my side.

When I was Six, we moved and Tippi could not go.  When I was Six, for days I did not eat.  When I was Six, Tippi came home! 



Then I was Seven, Tippi took me for walks.

When I was Eight, Tippi could find me in a tree.
Then I turned Nine, Tippi fended my foe.
When I was Ten, Tippi slept on my bed.
When I was Eleven, Tippi stayed on the floor.
The next year was not so sweet...
... I was Twelve, Tippi ran in front of a car.
When I was Twelve,Tippi was gone. 
When I was Twelve, My world was torn.
When I was Thirteen, I was still sad.
Then I was grown, Tippi came back....
          She lives forever in my Heart.

Oh how very touching and sad. Oddly enough, and although I don't remember him, my family had a pet (dog) named Tippi and he also died tragically. This is written with the heart of a child, the heart of a child who loves her pet so much and will always remain in her heart. ~Hugs, Elizabeth

I like to think you can tell a lot about someone by how they treat animals. This story tells me volumes. I lost one of my beloved mini-Dachshunds this year. It hurt like heck. Still does at times. My hubby and I made a shrine for him: his green ball, his food bowl, his spiked collar, a poem I wrote honoring him, and 3 pictures at different stages in his life. When I read works like this, I realize how quickly pets earn unconditional love from us; they give that unconditional love back just as quickly. Thank you for sharing this story. Love and Hugs,
