Tango

Craig & Cindy's associate Tango died suddenly at the tender age of 8 1/2 on October 1st, 2014. To say he is missed is an understatement. Not only did he make it a much happier experience for us to come to work, he also brought a smile to everyone else who came in the door. He loved to perform for visitors and be rewarded with treats and, if you were lucky, he gave up his window seat to you. As we like to say, he was the best dog ever! If you're checking this out, please take a moment to donate to your favorite animal charity in his memory. RIP big guy!
