Taz is a linebred Vogue daughter and is everything I could have hoped to produce in a breeding. A very substantial,
short backed bitch with beautiful movement, she had an illustrious puppy career in the show ring. Shown a total of only
8 weekends as a puppy she compiled an impressive list of wins in that time including 9 Puppy Groups, 5 Best Puppy in
Shows, a Group 4th, and Best of Opposite Sex in Puppy Sweepstakes at the Canadian National Specialty. She also
made an appearance at the American National Specialty, winning the 6-9 month puppy class and going Best of
Opposite Sex in Puppy Sweepstakes at the Eastern Regional the following day. As an adult, Taz continued her winning
ways, coming out as a special for the 2001 Canadian National Specialty and going Best of Breed. She has proven to
be just as impressive a producer. She is now retired and is happy being part of the meet-and-greet committee around
It was the day I dreaded more then any other. I knew it would happen one day, but I couldn't even entertain the thought
of life without my Taz. On April 12, 2008 she was gone forever. It was unexpected and quick and both John and I were
totally not prepared to deal with yet another loss in such a short period of time.
I can't even begin to express what she meant to me. She was just everything. It seems just like yesterday that I held her
tiny little newborn body in my hands. My first litter, my first homebred champion, later going on to become a National
Specialty winner. She was an amazing mom giving me so much to continue on with and, after retirement, she was the
most gentle and patient grandma to all the litters that followed. She loved people and was the happiest when people
would come to see the dogs, always making sure she was front and center for all the free patting that came with those
visits and keeping a close eye out for any sign that they would sit so she could immediately position herself in a lap. I
have countless pictures of her with anybody she could work her way onto. The house seems so quiet and empty
without her presence. She was a vocal dog, anybody would tell you that, and she was also hilarious with her happy
'bird thrill" noise and her way of curling as she came towards you with both her bum and face or the way she'd lean on
people and just fall back trusting that they'd always break the fall. There are so many other little things, too many to list.
Losing her is almost unbearable. I remember years ago at a dog show one judge telling me as he handed her the BPIG
win "You'll probably never get another like this one" .... so hauntingly true. Life will never be quite the same.
My beautiful Tazbo, may the Angels watch over you until we meet again.
