I rescued Tango, the Best Boy Ever!, from a shelter in Bathurst New Brunswick in early September , 2010. A very inexperienced and loving stray, who had lived almost exclusively outdoors, he knew not how to get in a car, or even what a toilet was. His
shelter name was Mustang. They felt his outdoor untamed spirit, was that of a Mustang horse. In the shelter, the prospect of having a new owner had him dancing and jumping in my arms. His new mama (me) thought he needed a name that reflected his high spirited dancing and kind of kept the sound (or part of) his shelter name..... it was Tango from that day forward!

The past 8 1/2 years have been a joy watching Tango learn the domesticated lifestyle, and also learn about the love of living inside with someone who'd love him as much as he'd loved me! A more loyal and loving dog could never be found. In fact many friends sometimes question who saved who!
Tango become the best dog ever and did not require a collar or leash. He was my constant sidekick and loved his weekend trips to the cottage. Late nights or early days, he was there for me and his love and trust were endless.
At home he had ponds to swim in, fields and woods to run through. He even caught his own trout. He would dig his favourite treat from the garden ( raw potato) and loved his life at home. He had the ultimate "Dogs Life"

A few years later "the brown" appeared (Chocolate lab P.D.) and what a great time they had! Tango (although younger) became the big brother, the mentor, and good buddy of P.D.
The days were spent together playing outdoors, going for swims and catching frogs.... truly this was "Dog heaven" on Earth!
But even with the best situations, the best dog, and the thought that "it couldn't get any better",.... tragedy can strike!
Sadly, on December 21, 2018 tragedy did strike and my best boy, in the prime of his life, without notice, was taken, in not much more, than a blink of an eye. An undetected tumour had ruptured inside of him. I had a few moments to help him stay brave and tell him mama loves him!
A protector til the very end ( he growled at those trying to help him in the car, as he wanted to be with me), my best friend was soon gone. P.D's buddy, guide and mentor....gone... A beautiful soul......gone.
Shattered hearts left behind but precious memories to fill my heart and dreams.
If the love he gave could have saved him, He would live forever! You will be missed sweet boy!
