Memorial Tributes

(July 1, 2004 - July 7, 2019)
By Eric Talaska in Springfield, Oregon
Tippy became a high profile traveling PTSD service and therapy dog at age nine which is when most service dogs retire! Tippy is the first dog to be called a "WhipEagle" breed because he's a Whippet Beagle mix. Tippy's handler is having a hard time finding a replacement as good as he was. I learned a lot from Tippy such as the need to control anger because anger only makes things worse and how my problems are minor compared to Tippy's when he later became blind and diabetic, yet he still retained his strong will power and positive attitude. He set an amazing example.
