    No, that's not my place. The pertinent detail is that it's true.

    I can’t even imagine what Rob is going through right now. Very sad. Taro was such a sweet pup.

    #7 2 years ago

    Damn, that BLOWS.

    #8 2 years ago

    Having lost so many pets over the years, I empathize with the loss. Very sad news

    #9 2 years ago

    Oh man. Sorry Rob.

    #10 2 years ago

    That’s rough. Very sad to hear that.

    #11 2 years ago

    I hadn’t heard of Taro but somehow knew from the thread title it was about a pet. Really sorry to hear it.. our cat clears the room whenever I even get near the Power switch

    #12 2 years ago

    So sorry to hear about this Rob.

    #13 2 years ago

    Oh no.. so sorry, Rob. Taro always brought a smile to my face. Such a sweet dog that was loved by so many. Condolences.

    #14 2 years ago

    This is so sad. Taro was the best dog and I enjoyed seeing him at shows. RIP Taro and know you're missed. So sorry for your lost Rob

    #15 2 years ago

    Soo sad. Sorry for you loss Rob. They say every lost dog takes a price of your heart. They wait for you at the rainbow bridge to make you whole again.

    #19 2 years ago

    Never met Taro but i can sure as hell feel Robs pain...

    So sorry for your loss.

    #20 2 years ago

    This really bums me out. Taro was the sweetest pup. I always looked forward to seeing Rob and his trusty sidekick.
    Rob, my heart goes out to you today. Taro will be missed for many years to come.

    Quoted from Fortytwo:

    They wait for you at the rainbow bridge to make you whole again.

    I'm a humor-in-tragedy coping kind of person, so I'm just gonna leave this here. Every time someone has mentioned the rainbow bridge in the last 10 years... I can't disassociate it. I've lost many pets over the years, and having to actually have one put down f'ed me up so badly I waited about 6 years before even attempting to have another.

    #22 2 years ago

    So sorry to hear this, this dog was easily my wife’s favorite part of any show and there wasn’t a close second. Amazing dog that put up with all of us.

    #23 2 years ago

    Sorry for your loss Rob. We had a 15 year old dog pass on a couple of weeks ago and they do feel like family members. Taro will be missed at the shows.

    #24 2 years ago

    I met Taro a long time ago at the Herrin, Illinois show. Taro loved everyone. We are so sorry for your loss.

    #25 2 years ago

    So sorry for your loss Rob. RIP dear beloved Taro.

    #26 2 years ago

    Sorry for your loss Rob.

    #27 2 years ago

    Terrible to lose a loved one. I'm sorry Rob.

    LTG : )

    #28 2 years ago

    Sorry for the loss Rob, Taro was a fantastic four legged friend.

    #29 2 years ago

    So sad. Lots of love to you Rob.

    #31 2 years ago

    so sorry to hear this....Taro was always happy to see anyone

    #32 2 years ago

    My deepest sympathies on the passing of your dear friend and companion.

    #33 2 years ago

    So sad; animals are only with us for such a short time, but they feel like family each and every day.

    #34 2 years ago

    I’m so so sorry Rob. I know Taro was family to you.

    100% and it doesn't make the hurt any better.

    #36 2 years ago

    Taro nipped me at Expo , but I forgave him. I love dogs

    #37 2 years ago

    Sorry for the loss of your family Rob. Taro is and was apart of all of us pinheads at shows. Theres not a Pin a go go that i cant think of happy thoughts as she greeted all of us at the show.

    Sorry for your loss, Rob! (

    #39 2 years ago

    Very sorry to hear about this! Condolences to you Rob...

    #40 2 years ago

    Very sorry to hear...thoughts and prayers from NW Ohio

    #41 2 years ago

    Loved that pup! I always took advantage of Rob’s kindness by hiding out in his room at shows. The peace and quiet were nice, but that sweet Taro was the biggest draw. I was sad to learn Rob wasn’t setting up in TX this year, but was looking forward to seeing them both.

    What a shame......such a beautiful dog!

    #43 2 years ago

    Sorry to hear, and my sincere condolences. Always enjoyed visiting Taro at Expo & the MGC.

    #44 2 years ago

    So sorry to hear about Taro! A dog is truly man's best friend and I am not looking forward to the day that I have to face what you are dealing with right now! Sorry for your loss!

    #45 2 years ago

    Sorry for your loss Rob!

    #46 2 years ago

    So sorry to hear about Taro, Rob. So tough whenever you lose your best bud and family member.

    #47 2 years ago

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I made it a point to come pet Taro when Rob was at Expo. After being around all the crop dusting, it was nice to go into Rob's room off the exhibit hall and greet Taro. He always had the big moon eyes and wagging tail. Best salesman ever. I bought stuff I didn't need just because I stayed in the room so long petting that darn dog.

    #48 2 years ago

    Wow, I know what pain you are going through Rob. I am so sorry to hear this terrible news. I always enjoyed seeing your pup when I went to shows. We can’t avoid seeing them pass but you can know that he had a wonderful life because of you. For those of us who are/were
    Lucky enough to have a dog like him there are no words to describe how it feels to lose them.

    Take care Rob.

    #49 2 years ago

    Condolences to Rob. We put our dog to sleep today. She was 15 and in poor health and it was a hard decision to make but the right one. I started my day coming home from Boy Scout camping with my son to digging a grave and taking our dog to the vet and coming home and burying her. A roller coaster day of emotions.

    #50 2 years ago

    Put my cat to sleep in early August. Very hard to say goodbye. Feel,your pain. Best to get another companion. It's tough, wish pets lived longer.
