Our good friend Skipper was put to sleep this morning.  His condition deteriorated rapidly over the last 3 weeks.  Besides his kidney failure and the daily subcutaneous IV's, he became disoriented and could not walk which brought us to the difficult decision.  We want to thank you for all your caring concern during his illness.  We will miss him but always will have our memories of him.

Skipper My full name is Sir Thomas Lipton and I was born January 31, 1994, in Indio, California on Super Bowl Sunday.  My mom is Tenisha Senorita and my pop is Timmy El Poncho.  I live in La Quinta, California with Dan and Mary Newman.  I enjoy walks, giving kisses, and visiting my buddy Shooter.

I'm very curious. I
enjoy watching television.
My favorite movie is
Homeward Bound. I'm
extremely strong and
a good jumper.

I am a true Skipper
and have sailed to San
Diego on a small sail-
boat, living aboard
for 10 days. I love
camping and the out-
of-doors with a few


Skipper I really have fun
playing with toys --
especially the soft
ones. I know their
names and can re-
trieve them by

This is me all grown up with my puppy-cut hairdo. On Thanksgiving, 1997, I got to visit Shooter and meet his new pal Alex. While Shooter and I get along great, I was a little territorial about having Alex in my house. Maybe next time we'll be buddies.

Skipper Here I am with a Christmas present from a Boston Terrior down the street.  Rawhides are wonderful!

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

  May I go now? 

Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days and endless pain filled nights?
I didn't want to go at first I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving light.
I promise that I'll not be far and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close where ever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me
You know I loved you too.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me you'll let me go today."
That rainbow bridge is a special place!
