My boy Tazz looked forward to his morning walks . On Saturday and Sunday he enjoyed riding in the car where he could watch the scenery. His favorite past time was "of course" sleeping on the couch, where we spent many hours together. He loved running & chasing squirrels. Tazz was one of the most loving and affectionate dogs I
have had the pleasure to live with. He brought us many years of laughter and joy , he will be missed terribly , the image and memory of him will always be with us.
