Surveyor: Mr. Vince Tantaro
was my very 'spoilt' baby- as anyone that knew him will tell you! He
could count (bark) and would bring his bowl to me after his tea each night . In his 'other' life I'm sure he was a retriever as he loved to carry things for me and show off, yet always remain calm and dignified unless provoked. Amongst his many 'other' talents, he could speak
on command, and would often indulge me with his 'Tango' talk - which only he and I knew. We had many discussions he and I, and when I didn't quite get what he was trying to say, he would cock his head to the side and try once more as much to say...I can't make it any clearer!
Above all, Tango wasa true ambassador for his breed right to the end, with the vet staff at Werribbee continually commenting that they didn't see Shepherds like him anymore and what a pleasure he was.
He was lightly shown, loved participating in Agility (particularly jumpers) and was trained to
CD level in obedience -He had a passion for water and loved our summer trips to the river, even though getting him out of the water was always a trial.
Tango was the son of 'Peppi' out of
our Denargun Super Hero x Sherhaven Voodoo daughter Camnusch Blu Ice, alias 'Pinky' (passed away 2005 at 13+ years of age) and carried sound, accomplished animals on both sides of his pedigree. He displayed pure masculinity, strength, intelligence and the glamorous good looks of his mum and dad. All this coupled with a correct construction and an unquenchable desire to please me made him a joy to own and a challenge to train! Tango was a true friend and character in every sense of the word - dogs like him just don't come along every day. His greatest achievement whilst on this earh was being the best companion and guardian this human could ever have. God is a very lucky man indeed!
You might be gone my furry friend, but you will NEVER be forgotten...wait for me on the other side!
