Your name meant “Pure Gold”

Your love was worth a fortune,

My heart is in debt.

Almost everyone knew you as “Zippy”.  Few knew that your actual name was “Ibriiz”… even fewer knew that you were a National Specialty winner, and a Best in Field winner and a defender of human children against a Ridgeback horde.  What defines a “Winner”?  That you won medals, ribbons, accolades, $$$$?  Or that you were able to effortlessly win over the hearts of everyone you met?  So many visitors to our home have commented on the number of dogs, or the obnoxiousness of  the rat terrier. But everyone  commented on Zippy’s presence…gentle, yet protective and loving all at the same time.  In the end Time had her way with him….she stole his amazing athleticism, she stole his ability to stand guard over his family.  But in the end, I stole from Her the  ability to take his dignity.

Thank you Zip.  Run free, get the bunny and know that we miss you horribly.

RIP BISS, Int’ Ch., BIF  Shi’ Rayan’s Ibriiz at Mystic Ridge.

      1. Oh I hope your poor heart feels better. Though Zip will always be missed, he will always have a special place in your heart, he’ll always be right with you in that way. ~ Lily
