Arrival Story:
I had lost my beloved dog Dancer a couple of years prior and finally made the decision to risk my heart again. I had always had large dogs, but due to the rules where I was then living, I knew it had to be a smaller dog. I did some research and was very interested in the Schipperke (known as the big dog in a small dog's body). I went to see some pups and loved them all. But there was one that would not leave me alone. He just wanted to sit on my lap and kiss me the entire 2 or so hours I was there. He wouldn't let go. I knew then that he had picked me and I didn't have a choice in the matter. I was to be his Mom. I had to leave him with his current guardian for a couple more weeks to finish out his shots. As I was leaving, his guardian asked me if he should put a colored color on him to make sure I knew which one he was when I returned. I looked at him and said, "I don't think that will be a problem!" Sure enough, when I returned a couple of weeks later, here came my bundle of joy running to me. He had picked his Mom for life and was ready to start the adventure. And what an adventure it has been!

Taz is the best little dog in the whole wide world. He loves to snuggle and snooze and cuddle and play. Everything is about "him" and he has to be in the center of everything (of course). He is a bundle of joy in my life!

Taz - The Schipperke Angel's Wings in Glorious Flight

A Real Angel Now

On April 27, 1997, a beautiful angel was born. In August of that year, he picked me to be his Mom. From that day forward he was a part of me, part of my soul, part of my heart, my life. Known as Taz {The Angel Dog} to myself and anyone who knew him, he gave every bit of energy and love he had to others. He taught me how to be a human being, how to love again. He gave me so many gifts; there are too many to mention. He loved everyone and everyone loved him. Even the ones that thought he was a pain in the ass couldn't resist that little face of his and those big soulful eyes.

On May 13, 2010, after a year long battle with many problems, he told me he was ready. He was tired and he knew if he went and got his real angel wings that he could still watch over me and that I would be okay too. He was such a trooper during this past year. All the tests, poking and prodding, all the contraptions he was made to wear. He never complained. I didn't know if I would have the courage and strength to give him that last final gift of letting him go. But when I saw the look in his eyes that morning, I knew. He gave me the courage to do what needed to be done. In his last moments, he let out one of his big sighs and he smiled to let me know he was okay now. He could finally sleep and graduate to go get his magnificent final glorious wings.

I'm struggling with his loss. The pain is sometimes unbearable. But he is watching over me and giving me signs that I will be okay. He was all about life, enjoying life and experiencing every single moment to it's utter complete joy. I only hope that I can honor him and carry on the way that he taught me to live...fully and with a smile on my face.

Rest my sweet Angel. Run as fast as you can. Eat all the carrots you want. Tear up your toys now...no one's going to throw them away because you've mutilated them. Mitzi and Dancer, I'm sure, are joyful to have you with them. Give them each one of those special Taz kisses that you always saved just for me. You'll always be my Angel Dog...Forever. Love you Forever.

Long time, no bark. Hope all the Dogter Doggies are doing well.

I'm doing just fine. I turned 10 years young in April. Whoo hoo!

Mom is still as ditzy as always. She was trying to put this fountain together yesterday. Well, first she tried to screw the solar panel on backwards. Then when the fountain didn't work, she realized that she hadn't put the plug all the way in the jug. Ha...ha...ha... Poor Mom. She does need me around to keep her straight.

Mom and I are about to head out for a walkie, so I'll keep this short. We haven't been on many walkies lately because Mom sprained her foot.

Hey there Dogster pals! Hope you all are doing well!

It finally happened - I'm cone-free!!!! Yay!!!! Mom says my stitches are healing well and I've been a good boy about not licking at them. And tomorrow, I get to have some of my old food! You know what that means...treats are next! Oh yeah, Man! Love them treats! Mom says I should be able to go back to daycare starting in July! Yay! I miss my little black schnauzer pal there.

Mom's been busy on the home front planting flowers and stuff. I supervised. It's kind of nice sitting out there and enjoying the flowers with Mom, but I just don't know what to do about all these darn C-A-T-S! They keep invading my space and what's worse, they seem to be multiplying in numbers! I tell ya' - what's a dog to do?

Well, that's about all I had to bark about. You all take care now!
Taz {The Angel Dog!}
