Skipper at Shelby Farms

Skipper getting his first leg of his CD


On July 12, 2003 Becky and I lost one of our closest companions. Phoenix Gilligan's Island, CD, FDCH, Delta Society Dog, but known to us as Skipper, went to the Rainbow Bridge after a short battle with fibrosarcoma, a type of cancer that attacks the connective tissue.

Skipper's last day was spent doing the things that he loved: Swimming, Running, Retrieving, and being with his family.

We miss you Skipper and will never forget you.
