Tango was named after the tradition at her kennel of naming after movies, of naming after military names (Tango for T) and Paris for a little town in Maine which is my family's summer slice of heaven.

Tango was a beautiful merle with cream points.  She came of out the crate teeth first and never stopped.  She was highly reactive to my special needs son and 3 trainers were unable to help us with it until we discovered training for rally obedience.  Just as we had finally started breaking through with a strict training regime, she succumbed to what was either a liver shunt or a mass injestion of poisonous mushrooms.  We haven't seen the amount vets tell us her liver enzymes indicated she would have injested, so we suspect something else was at work.  Tango was a small 35 pounds and barely standard height.  We loved her - she was my husband's favorite.  We miss her every day and she started my mission to ensure I did a better job than I received from her breeder when I asked for guidance (and was turned away) and promised to educate myself and build a network so anyone who got a puppy from me in the long run would never go through what I did.  That's all I can say without crying or will say without making anyone angry.  

Tango was stunningly beautiful with a marbled left eye.  I learned my first "hands on" conformation faults with her.  Sway back, pacing gait, straight rear, no shoulder angulation… you name it - but she had the most amazing ear set!!!  And she grinned - she always grinned, just for us.  I miss that.
