Our not figuring out what specific treat he is asking for.
Around the pond in our neighborhood
He is the fastest dog I know, next to a greyhound
My husband stopped by on my lunch hour, & we decided to eat in the park since it was such a nice day. We noticed a lot of dogs being walked, & I remembered that the Humane Society had an adoption day going. We walked over to look at the dogs and Joe began talking to the president. She said what we really need is Foster Families. "Oh, what is that?" He asked. She replied, "Families to take the dogs in until they can find a permanent home." "We could do that." said Joe. "Wait a minute." I said, ever the voice of reason. "I know you need to have a fenced yard for that." "We could have a fenced yard in 2 days, I know a guy!" Famous last words! Tazz has been with us for 4 yrs. now.
Tazz passed over the rainbow bridge this morning after toughing it out for a year & a half from chronic kidney failure post dog food recall incident. He will always be loved.
Tazz has one of the saddest or luckiest stories I have heard. On a freezing Thanksgiving morning, at dawn, still dark out and in a raging sleet/snow storm, an animal control officer was beginning her route. She was in a "bad" part of town and thought she saw a rock in the center of the road, & decided to stop & move it so someone wouldn't break an axel. It turned out to be a Newborn Puppy -- he still had the umbilical cord attached! She wasn't sure he was even alive, he was cold, but she thought she could feel a heartbeat, so put him under her shirt to keep him warm, & called the president of the Humane Society, who answered her cell at dawn on Thanksgiving. They got him warmed up, to a vet, & she bottle fed him. He came to us at 4 1/2 mos. A new sad chapter is that Tazz was severely affected by the pet food recall last March. He is still with us thanks to a couple of thousand in vet bills, I.V. fluids for 10 days, a vasodilator, and I have him on two meds for kidney failure now. We know his life will be much shorter than it should be, but for now he is still here and the number one dog in our pack.
Tazz passed over the rainbow bridge this morning, Sept 16, 2008. He will always be loved.
The Groups I'm In:
♥All Fur Fun♥, German Shep-pei the German Shepherd/chinese Shar-pei hybrids
We recently had a DNA bloodtest done on Tazz. The Humane Society had called him a "terrier-mix". Well, there's no terrier in the mix! He is a combo of Chinese Shar-pei (his curly tail), Chow Chow (blue/black tongue spots), German Shepherd (ears & muzzle, maybe teeth), and of all things, Chihuahua! Probably why he is 50 lbs, not 85, and why his teeth are too big for his mouth!
