For those of you who know me well…you will recognize this adorable face without any hesitation. Tucker was one of the most kind and gently souls I have ever encountered in a dog. I can still remember the first time holding him in my arms when he was just a furry little puff-ball.
This morning I work to 4 missed calls and a text message from my mom…Tucker is no longer with us.
Hearing the words were painful, he had been through so much with me over the past 14 years. I remember when I was younger taking him out in the yard to talk if I had to get some thing off my chest. He was always a good sport and allowed us to dress him up in Santa hats around Christmas. And he acted as the neighborhood pet when the other kids were working on convincing their parents to allow them to get a dog.
I loved the little guy, and it makes me so sad that I am so far away and couldn’t say good-bye.
I wish I could say that I took the news lightly this morning, but wailing was pretty much how I reacted. My stomach is all up in knots, and my desire to hug a Big loveable Golden like Tucker is uncontrollable at the moment.
I wanted to share the news because I know so many people in my life have come to fall in love with my main man!
We love you Tuck-tuck…may you rest gracefully and continue to watch over us no matter where in the world we may be!
