Von Tasz Shepherds
Tasz is the very heart, sole, and foundation of "Von Tasz". She was THE one that
jump started me into obedience, conformation, and everything else that followed!

March 5, 2003 "Reminiscing": Tasz was affectionally known as "Tazzy-Toad" because when she
was a pup, she would get so excited to see you that she would "pee
like a toad"! She was also extremely athletic and, boy could she jump.
I recall the day Tasz and I were walking through a house being built and
she went upstairs to the second floor to explore. I exited the house and
called for her. She appeared in a 2nd story windowless pane and JUMPED
OUT! (She landed perfectly fine.) Tasz and I were doing Agility before
it was even a sport. She loved to jump up on "the Monster" (a
HUGE partially sunken large equipment tire), do the teeter-totter, mimic
the dogwalk, etc. We had many good years together and she blessed me with
her son, "Moses".
Postnote: On December 1, 1988, Tasz was suddenly taken from me. I took her in to
be spayed knowing that with every surgery there is risk but never dreaming
that something could happen to her. To my devastation, due to surgery complications,
she past away shortly thereafter. On that day, I believe my precious little
girl earned her wings.
