Tag grew up in Go Dog Go. He was in our first puppy foundations class. He pee'd on my foot that first night in class and continued to do so until the very end. Every time he would greet me he'd jump up for a hug and pee... I got a final hug (and a pee) last night, and told him what a good boy he was, and that I loved him.
Lately he hadn't been himself, mysterious weight loss, muscle loss. Ongoing issues, with no answers. Finally, some answers but too little too late. Tag went into organ failure and was put to rest in his Mom's arms. It's a devastating loss, but so suddenly, and with such a young dog is even worse. The heartache his family is feeling is indescribable.
He will be so missed. He was one of the best. And had a huge fan club. I loved that dog, and am so lucky to have been able to be part of his circle of friends. He leaves a big hole in everyones hearts.
Rest in Peace Taggy.
