2/25/2014You crossed the Rainbow Bridge today... I know Simba was happy to see you. She always thought of you as her own puppy. Cleo was waiting too, your playmate, partner in crime. Thank You Taz for being such an incredible dog. You brought so much joy to your "Mom" and your family. I know you were always such a stoic boy and that you would have held on as long as possible. Your Mom's heart was breaking to see your body failing and slowly with the loss of more senses, your mind was losing it's clarity. I remember the day when we brought you home. Mom joked that you were a "replacement" for Jonny after he had "flew the coop". She named you Taz after one of his favorite Warner Bro's characters Tasmania Devil. You were an adorable little puppy and grew to be a gorgeous boy, always protective of your family and the kids. You traveled to the USA with us and back to South Africa again. Multiple homes, multiple countries... your love was always unconditional, you never judged, you were always thrilled to see us no matter how long we were gone. Today my heart is broken.... its not for you Taz, I know you are finally "free" of your disease and your failing body, i know you are chasing Cleo again and bugging Simba... my heart breaks for your Mom. Thank you Mom, for giving Taz such an incredible life, for showing him the love and patience and for putting your broken heart aside to help him pass in dignity in your arms. I am sending you a virtual candle today but have a real one lit too. I love you Taz, I love you Mom...Melanie CohenCape Town, Rhode IslandFebruary 25, 2014

Tazzy boy! I'm wishing peace to your amazing family and thankful for the lifetime full of love they showed you. You lived a long an amazing life and truly were able to see the world! I know that you were a happy boy and couldn't have had a better family. Although we are left to ache at the passing of a loved one, may we always remember to rejoice in the life that we were able to share together. Rest in peace!Christine Shibly - February 28, 2014
