Default Happy Birthday Tasha 8 years old today!

Well, today it's 8 years ago my little mix was born..

She was suposed to be a pure breed rottie, but low and behold out fell ten red wrinklystumps... The breeder had quite a chock that the shar pei had beaten the rottie to it..

I saw her and I fell in love, being a newbie I didn't even bother to go and check the pups but the breeder brought one to me when she was in Stockholm..

I bought the piggie in the bag so to say, but oh my God did I strike gold.

She has been with me eversince and she is the most amazing dog I have ever come across. She has done so much during her lifetime and not much is phasing her. I have done many misstakes throughout the years, some of bad judgement, some of sheer stupidity and she has pulled through them all and forgiven me.

At the little age of four months I had her behind my black jack table at work. She slept through the music, the laughter, the barfights, everything.. and when she woke up, she just sat there behind the table, noone noticed her. Such an amazing little dog, she was an old soul in that little puppy body.

We have hitch hiked all along Sweden, wandered many trails, she was with me when I help my ex rody on a Robyn concert, she even had her own backstage pass (and she made out with the drummer OMG such behavior). We have slept in many tents, in forests, at mountains, and at beaches. Usually she even has her own sleeping bag the little spoiled mutt, she freezes too easily.

One summer we took a bikeride around Gotland a swedish island, so we took a ferry over, rented two bikes and two bike waggons.. Put the dogs in one (yes they got hauled too hot for them to run) and the baggage and tent in the other.


She has helped me with all the dogs that I have dragged home, given them chance upon chance despite that she has been attacked so many times. It's like she knows so she's so patient and only has defended herself in self defense.

One year when we were on the train heading to my parents, we meet a woman and her daughter, they were crying, Tasha went over there and put her head in the womans lap nudging her to get petted.

It showed up the woman had lost her son, and they were devestated, he hadn't even reached 30.. we talked and Tasha cuddled her to peices.

I ran into the daughter a year later in the subway, and she reccognised me, she told me that Tasha had saved their christmas.

Now she's over here, being that same dog.. We still going on adventures, next summer wil be more. So far we have only travelled cross country with the greyhound bus.

Oh we also have when vagreys smuggled her into the sushi restaurant

Tasha has had many adventures in her 8 years, and hopefully there is many to come the next few years too. As soon as I get my license off to the trails we will go.

Here is a pics...

At the breeders 4 or 5 weeks old.. Rather ugly...





The day I got her home, first day, sorry for the quality I had no digi cam back then only my computer cam.. Ex borrowed one a few days later..
9 weeks old here.









Here she is about 3-4 months old..





Here 4 months old.




Here is Tasha's FIRST birthday..
I woke up at around 1.00 AM realizing it was her birthday, so I took her for a night walk.. We took the bus into the city, which was a good one hour ride itself.. and then we took a guided tour with Tasha showing Stockholm.. However Tasha is showing more than the items.

I personally think she was GORGEOUS as a 4/5 week old pup! I would have fallen in love too (:
