In Memory of Tarquin (1995-2007)

Tarquin had the biggest heart and character of any dog we had growing up. Dubbed Houdini as a puppy for always finding new ways out of the whelping box Tarquin was always scheming to get what he wanted. His stubbornness combined with his cleverness always had our family laughing. He was known for appearing randomly when a camera came out, swiping pate off a coffee table (not at his own house...), befriending a lonely bunny that moved into our barn, and his love of water - no matter the temperature. Always a happy dog Tarquin loved to be in the middle of any family project from snow shoveling to barn building. We all still miss him greatly and no family gathering goes by without a comment being made on "If Tarquin were here..."Tarquin had the biggest heart and character of any dog we had growing up.
