Tales of Tippy: See the Movie
She used to have five little Malteses, and realized that some point that she was "was missing something when it came to dog entertainment," despite favorite flicks like Air Bud.
"I knew for a fact that my dogs spoke," she told me. "They could look at me and say, ‘Why are you going out with this person again? You had a miserable time the last time..."'
So she made a movie about her dog, Tippy, and now it's in an actual theater this weekend as part of the Delray Beach Film Festival.
It's called The Tippy Story, and it's showing at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday March 11, Delray Beach 18, 1660 S. Federal Highway. Rnning time: 1:40 minutes. Tickets are $8. And although Tippy went to doggy heaven last year at 13, Pinky the Maltese will be there with Litwok.
The Tippy story isn't just a film; it's a book and a clever website: www.thetippystory.com.
You can buy an audio CD at stores listed on the site. Litwok says she'll used any profits to do animal rescues.
Tippy would be so proud.
