Taz The Dog.
Scott Turner sent in this photo of Taz, with a note:
"Taz, named after Tazio Nuvolari. Owner, Mark Turner. Mark is my brother and he lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
"FYI - Tazio Nuvolari started out in motorcycle racing in 1920 at the age of 27. In 1925 he captured the 350cc European Championship?. From then until the end of 1930, he competed both in motorcycle racing and in automobile racing."
