Honouring Tango


Earlier this year SARShop.com contacted search and rescue groups from around the world asking members to submit photos of their dogs.  Their plan was to produce the first Search and Rescue calendar.  We submitted a couple of pictures of our beautiful Tango and then promptly forgot about it.  Just a couple of days before Tango crossed over the rainbow bridge we received an email telling us that Tango’s picture had been chosen for the calendar.  This weekend we received our complimentary copy of the 2015 calendar.  It was very emotional for us to see our girl’s picture in the calendar.  The picture above is the one they chose.  She is part of a group of pictures for the month of July.

Back in 2012 this picture of Tango was chosen to hang in the Royal Alberta Museum as part of their Wolf to Woof exhibit. (read more about it here).



Just a few more pictures of our girl.  She always looked like she was smiling.  Gosh I miss her……..
