The Microsoft Word grammar check shows "Tipsy's" to be wrongly formed. I thought "Tipsy'" would do the job and it was shown as correct. However, it occurred to me that Tipsy does not end in a 'z' or 's' sound, so now I am confused.

If you are using Tipsy as a name, the possessive is Tipsy's. (If you're trying to make it some other kind of noun, it probably can't be done.) The grammar checker can't be expected to distinguish names from other words, so is telling you that you can't put 's on an adjective.
