Arrival Story: His family was moving to the US and didn't ewant to take him with them. I thought that was a rather bad thing but it wasn't his fault so I accepted him. They do visit him occasionally and were thinking of breeding him but never came back.
I am very sorry to report that the TazMonser went to Rainbow Bridge on 15 November 2008. He was diagnosed with inoperable cancer of the tongue in September 2007. We worked on it together but there is no cure. I was given many medicines for him but nothing worked. In February, 2008 I purchased what I believed to be another bottle of the medicine I had been giving him. I
got the wrong medicine. He was always very accepting of the shots He had to take. He would come to e on command and sit for his shots. this timehe shook off the shot and didn't like it. The next day he was very lethargic.
i called the vet and she anad "i talked abut the med I had given rather than what he was supposed toget. . Functionally Ihadpoisoned him. But after a few days he made an amazing recovery. FOr months he ws not only in remission but symptom free. Then in November 2007 the cancer came back with a vengance. There was no stopig it. On November 15 I wasw utside potting up wome plants for the garden and I noticed some movement out of the corner of my eye. Taz had come outside to see me and say Goodbye. He stood here for a moment thnen his left side paws gave out and he rolled over. He was dead before I reached his side.
/i have sdopted two Goldens since but neither will ever replaace the original Taz.
GoodBye my precious friend.
I hope to join you soon.
Bio: I have never had a dog with so much energy who eats as little as he does.
He is the most loving Friend I've ever had. We've not had much time together and now that is very limited. In September of 2007 Taz was diagnosed wth cancer of th tongue. It appears that, by definition that is inoperable in dogs so I had to start giving him shots morning and evening. He never resisted even though he knew what was coming when I called him over to sit with me.
He currently has one brother (Neil and two sisters living with us.
In february of 2008 I was runningoout of his medicine and I purchased more. Unfortunately I bought the worng thing. I took it home and gave him an injection. He flinched for the first time.
by the next morning he couldn't use his hind leg. I called the vet to tell her what I had done. I was convinced he was dying on the spot. He was totally limp all day and refuser food all day. Then next day he was only slightly better. But in about 3 days he rallied and he as in really good shape until this ont, Cotober 2008. We've ha da year together but he is losing weight rapidly now and his eating habiits are sropping off. He gets cooked rice with meat or shrimp oand vegetables every day.
The other guys ar ea little jealous but they are acdetping it.
I took Taz in originally because I love dogs and I had ony had one Golden previously. He immediately became attached a the hip.
Now that he is failing fast I''ve found anothe Golden to adopt. She is everything that Taz was and more - mostly bad.
I am terribly remiss and ashemed of not updating his story much earlier.
The Taz Monser went to Rainbow Bridge on November 15 2008. He was a love. He was elected "Puppamuss 5" after he ws diagnosed with cancer of the tongue in September 2007. We only had a little over a year left but we made the most of it. On his passing Neil became "Puppamuss 6 having relinquished his position of "Puppamuss 4" to Taz. Neil is now "Puppamuss 6." Hi ewill be 16 onthe 15th of Jsnuary if he makes it. He went blind several months ago and is suffering fro both overweight (sham on me) and arthritis. He did lose control fro a few weeks just after that but regained it after. He still sleeps in the house at night. I cna only hope he will tell me when it is his time.
