Ripley was the inspiration behind Critter Chat All Animal Newsletter, and still leads me in the direction of helping other animals of all types, everywhere.

Ripley has waited nearly 3 years to be honored with a special portrait. Although very difficult to work on this portrait, it is deserved by this very special and loving girl. 11-13-99

On January 24, 1997, Covey Tucker Hill Scales "Ripley" left my side to join those at the Rainbow Bridge. At the young and tender age of eighteen months, she was stricken with a deadly disease which took her quickly. Ripley was the sweetest, most loving girl, as well as sensitive and all those things we look for in a companion animal. 

Now by my side is my other very special girl, Red Leather, who has taught me that I can love another just as fiercely, and that it's okay to remember. Especially those wonderful times Rip and I had together, even though for such a short time.

Red has helped me, through her understanding, sensitivity and patience, to see just how lucky I was to have been blessed with two such loving, wonderful and caring GSD friends.

Look after the little ones at the Bridge my friend and remember me well, for I shall come for you one day. You are alive in my heart and soul, and will always be with me.  Mama loves you and still  misses you terribly.
