Early this morning, my best friend's dog Tuba died of a rattlesnake bite. He was a fearless little dachshund who was loved by all. We had the pleasure of dog-sitting Tuba the odd time and were always reluctant to let him go home. He was the only dog I ever considered nabbing (and then running to the southern most border to evade authorities). That is how much I (and my family) loved this little guy. He will be sorely missed. Jillian and Rob... my heart goes out to you both.
