A black-and-white photograph of a dog

Tippy (2/2000-5/2010)

But listen to this, bitch, and you, Grim Powers,
If any road ever leads up to heaven’s towers
My bitch comes with me. When I come to die
We go together, my bitch and I.
Or, if you fear to let such love return
Go to, and shut your gates. Sweeter to burn.
— T. H. White (source)

Tippy was the first dog that was all mine.  Nothing that I write will ever come close to capturing every thing that this wonderful, complex dog was, so I will leave it at that:  he was all mine.
