Last week was a hard one. We had to put Tipper to sleep last Thursday because an MRI showed an aggressive tumor on Tipper's upper spine, which caused paralysis of his hind legs and threatened to fracture his spine. This happened unbelievably fast and the only sign before last week was a sore front paw. We miss him so much, but we're trying to remember all of the good memories. This picture of him was taken by Sara last summer and is one of my favorites. He had been helping me in the garden and chasing his flying squirrel the day it was taken.
