This is Tippy, my 16-year-old grown-up puppy. She was adopted from the El Paso Humane Society in when she was about five weeks old. These days, Tippy tends to get lost in the front yard and forgets which way the door opens (or where it even is), but she's still a sweet, loving dog. Her favorite treats are vanilla wafers, although she'll settle for a rawhide bone. She spends most of her days now snoozing on a comfy bed of blankets in our home in Washington and still tries to ignore the cats, who take great delight in pestering her.
