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.

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.
