note from Sara 9-30-09Kip at the cabin 8-09In the Jemez Mountains — about the same size as a local Jack Rabbit

Kip and Molly 8-09Kip and his Golden Molly — waiting for their people

Your wish is My Command 8-09The one and only Kip

Jim had heart surgery this summer and, due to complications, some of the surgery was re-done.  The family has told me that Kip is the rock.  Sarah sent me this nice note and the photos.  I miss this boy so much, but also know that he is in a wonderful home, with people he loves who love him back.  Priceless!


  1. Deer Missus Penni, I’d be very kairfool if I woz yoo becorz in the letta thay speld TOUGH wrong. Yoo woodn’t want a litter of puppys with the hereditree spelling mistayk jeen. Peepool wood think thay wer dum & laking intelyjens. Good spelling is so impawtant

  2. Kathy says:

    Awww…Kip was meant to be a heart dog for more than one person! An incredibly unselfish “gift” you’ve given Penni!

  3. Alden says:

    It appears that Kip is a “heart” dog in oh so many ways. What a happy ending for all.

    What a lovely update on the Kipster. I’m so glad you found him such wonderful people who appreciate his big heart. A terribly hard thing to do, but you did it, Penni! Good for you!

  5. Traci says:

    awww, what a great update. 🙂 I’m so glad he loves them OH so much!!!

  6. Holly says:

    What a wonderful update! I know only too well how hard it is to place them, but updates like this make it so worthwhile.

  7. Dawn Small says:

    These are the kind of stories you hope to hear when you place a puppy or an older dog who is already a part of your own heart. I’m so glad Kip has found his place in the world.

  8. What a great note to receive. It always warms our hearts when we hear this kind of news, that a puppy or dog that we have placed with someone turns out to be the perfect placement. That’s all we really want for our buddies…the best forever home! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    You must be very proud of Kip, Penni. He’s a star!
