Today our Kip (and his littermates) is four years old. Though Kip now lives the life of a king with my friends Sarah, Jim, and Jill, he is in my heart forever. He taught me so much about happiness, he gave me so much pleasure and attention. Kip made me a believer that Cardis are the breed to live with, to play with, to work with. Yesterday I received an email from Sarah — just a one-liner “You cannot imagine how much we love every single thing Kip does.” Kip is their pool boy. When Sarah has her group of women friends over to swim in the mornings, Kip lies near the pool. Whenever someone comes to the edge, he goes over to re-greet them — you just can’t do enough of that greeting stuff. He knew from the first time they uncovered the pool that he shouldn’t get in, but that does not prevent him from being a fine host.
So, little Kip CD TD RN CGC, Therapy and Reading Education Assistance Dog, and CH Leo, Lindy, Dara, Glen — and the other kids, have a wonderful 4th birthday . . . and many more.
