Tara was with Juan and the vet in the end, she had out-lived every other pet that Barbara had ever had, she survived for 16.5 dog years or 115 human years – a sterling life, a grand companion and believe me she is sorely missed by everyone here. Tara was buried behind Barbara’s studio meeting place between the property and the easement where she so loved to wander.

Overwhelming response from our friends and studio visitors, the comments panel just grows – here are  five Tasmanian shots taken in her old age – 12345.
