January 16, 1999 ~ February 16, 2013
Our “Little Girl” was born on January 16, 1999 and went to heaven on February 16, 2013. She was adopted from the Humane Society at only 8 weeks old. The boys were so excited to finally get a puppy and Michael was singing “How Sweet it Is” by James Taylor on the way home and that’s how she got her name. Taylor was a challenge the first year of her life as she suffered from separation anxiety. We never knew what she would destroy while we were away from home; shoes, toys, furniture, Xbox cord, vacuum cleaner cord, window blinds, windowsills and even a hole in the wall! We finally decided to crate her whenever we left the house which she hated and so did we. The destruction phase ended after her first birthday so we got rid of the crate. Taylor was very smart and a graduate of Obedience School. She knew how to Sit, Lay and Shake on command. She was very protective of her family and home. She would sit on the stairs looking out the front window protecting her domain and if a salesperson would come knocking she would bark furiously and try to attack. She even chased the pizza man on top of his car when she managed to escape the house during a pizza delivery. Taylor loved being surrounded by her family and loved family get-togethers. She got along well with other dogs, including her four legged brother Sammy, but she would always steal and eat his treats that he would stash away for later. She loved to go for walks and her favorite place was Comanche Lookout Park. She enjoyed being outdoors, the cooler weather, chasing birds and squirrels. In her last year, she found peace hanging out in the back yard watching the birds and squirrels. Taylor was the best dog ever and we were blessed to have her in our life for the past fourteen years. “Little Girl” you will be truly missed but always in our hearts.
