“As fast as he could — which was not very fast — he ran up to me tail wagging, the first day I met him,”
“He’s just a really friendly dog. And I am a dog person, and they can tell.”

“He would just come by every day and pet him and give him some attention”
said Tashi’s owner, Karen Dimetrosky.
“Tashi would hang outside and would always get so excited when Jeff came. He would always try to pull me towards the mail truck.”
But at 14 years old, earlier this year Tashi suddenly became unable to walk up and down the steps of the porch..
