Best Tricks:
THE PAW, WHEN HE REALLY WANTS ICE CREAM THE DOUBLE PAW. I CAN PUSH THE CHAIR TO MY GATE AND HOP OVER IT SO I CAN ESCAPE, BUT THEN I REALIZE MY FOOD AND WATER ARE IN THE ROOM AND I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MOMMY TO LET ME BACK IN.

Arrival Story:
we made three attempts to pick up turbo off his breeder, first time it snowed and we couldn't go, second time we got a flat time and had to stop half way, turn around and travel 2 hours home on a space saver on 95. The third time we made it, we took one look at his soulful eyes and his huge paws and took him home. To this day his paws are the same size.

Bio:
TURBO HAS BEEN FIGHTING ORAL CANCER SINCE MAY 2005, HE HAD PART OF HIS LOWER JAW REMOVED, ONLY TO DISCOVER A YEAR LATER THE CANCER WAS REGROWING AT THE SAME SPOT. THE CANCER HAS SPREAD TO COVER MOST OF HIS LOWER MOUTH, SO WE HAD TO CHANGED HIS DIET TO GRAIN FREE FOOD, HE DOES HAVE DIFFICULTY EATING BUT OTHER THAN THAT HIS IS THE SAME WONDERFUL DOG. HE IS CURRENTLY GETTING OZONE INJECTIONS TO HELP SHRINK THE TUMOUR AND SO FAR IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING PLEASE KEEP TURBO IN YOUR THOUGHTS. WELL TURBO LOST HIS BATTLE WITH MOUTH CANCER ON 1-13-07 1PM , HE WAS A HAPPY DOG UNTIL THE MONDAY BEFORE, THEN HE SUDDENLY WAS TOO WEAK TO STAND ON HIS OWN, WE TRIED CARRYING HIM IN AND OUT BUT HE JUST WASN'T HAPPY ANYMORE. THE TAG WAGGING STOPPED AND ON FRIDAY NIGHT HE REFUSED TO EAT ANYTHING (I HAD BEEN PUTTING FOOD INTO HIS MOUTH FOR 6 MONTHS). HE WAS JUST IN TOO MUCH PAIN AND THE CANCER HAD SPREAD TO HIS THROAT, EVEN THOUGHT IT WAS THE HARDEST THING I EVER HAD TO DO, WE ENDED HIS PAIN AND SENT HIM OFF TO DOGGIE HEAVEN. THERE IS A HUGE VOID IN MY LIFE AND I MISSED HIM SO MUCH. I ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF MY 12 YEARS WITH HIM, THE GOOD AND BAD TIMES AND WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING. TURBO WAS THE SWEETEST DOG, AND WAS NEVER MEAN NO MATTER HOW MUCH PAIN HE WAS IN AT THE END. YOU ARE IRREPLACEABLE TURBO AND YOU WILL BE MISSED BY EVERYONE WHO LOVED YOU.
