Pippa was my soul mate.  I never ever ever had a dog that I was so attached to.  She was PERFECT and she loved me more than anything. She would get on my bed and cuddle or a while before getting onto her own bed, never ever got me up early.  I just knew that this day would be coming and she actually outlived her prognosis (after surgery) by a little over six months. I am lost without her!
Love, your Mom



The MAGRR Board of Directors extends sincere sympathy to the Rubin family on the loss of their precious Pippa.  Pippa was a very special girl who came to MAGRR as a stray from rural Tennessee.  She loved her life with her Mom and we are so grateful to the Rubins for loving her and giving her the life that she would never have had.  She had the best life and she knew that she was loved.   We know that we will see our furbabies again and so sweet Pippa, wait for your Mom and we will all see you on the other side.





So do not grieve for me, my friend, as I am with my kind…
My collar is a rainbow’s hue
My leash is a shooting star
My boundaries are the Milky Way
Where I sparkle from afar.

There are no pens or kennels here
For I am not confined
But free to roam God’s heavens
Among my special kind.

I nap the day on a snowy cloud
With gentle breezes rocking me
I dream the dreams of earthlings
And how it used to be.

The trees are full of liver treats
And tennis balls abound
And milk bones line the walking ways
Just waiting to be found

There is even a ring set up
The grass all lush and green.
And everyone who gaits around
Becomes the “Best of Breed.”

For we’re all winners in this place
We have no faults you see.
And God passes out the ribbons
To each one—even me.

At night I sleep in angels’ arms
Their wings protecting me
And moon beams dance about us
As stardust falls on thee.

So when your life on earth is spent
And you reach heaven’s gate
Have no fear of loneliness
For here, you know I wait.
