Tippy was a 16 year old Australian Shepard born in February of 2002. When we as kids were younger, we had always talked about getting a dog and once we saw Tippy, we knew he was perfect. As a puppy, he was always full of energy, and loved to run. He would always run along the fence line, chasing the garbage trucks, being the protector he was. There were countless times he would run around in the snow and dive into the deep piles and just have fun. There are oh so many more stories (including the time he stole an entire steak) that created so many more memories that will be part of an incredibly tough act to follow. Myself (Lucas) and Tippy had a particularly strong bond. He was honestly my best friend. We said our heartbreaking goodbyes on July 4th of 2018. Tippy, Words cannot express the joy and laughter you have brought our family all these years. We love you, and we miss you. Til’ we meet again buddy.
