Arrival Story:
Tucker's mom was turned into a rescue group with 10 pups when they were 4 weeks old. We adopted him when he was 8 weeks old. We wanted a playmate for Ziggy and were excited to find another Shar-pei mix. They are perfect together and get along great! Tucker is mischievous and very smart, with a hilarious personality. We adore him.

Tucker lost his battle with Valley Fever and sadly, we euthanized him 23 August 2010. His immune system was no match for the horrible skin infection that took over his body. He put up quite a fight, but after a Dermatologist, and an Oncologist we decided to let him go. His puppy spirit is so missed. Go find Ziggy at the Rainbow Bridge my Tucker.

We moved! Way far away from Arizona, well it seems far. Our new yard is so big and fun! I got to see my first Red Headed Woodpecker the other day. I did this strange thing and found myself still and focused on that bird. Mom says I was "pointing" like a retriever. What can I say? My Retriever genes are showing through even though I'm mostly Shar Pei. I feel a strong urge to chase birds and point at things! It's cold here right now, but we have this fireplace that I love to sit next to. Check out my new pic. I think I'm gonna dig this new place.


Goodbye New Years

I'm so glad New Years Eve is OVER. I hate it! There are many BOOMING noises and yelling people outside! And those whistling NOISES FREAK ME OUT. My kennel is the best place in the world and good thing mom knows that. She put me in there because I could not stand to be outside with all the racket. Ya know something? The poodle wasn't even that scared! But he used to live on the streets. I'm so glad I never had to live on the streets and I've always had my cozy kennel to keep me safe. Mom can't figure out why I'm so scared since I've never been hurt or mistreated. But hey, Zig used to be afraid and so I was afraid. Zig was SMART. Mom is hoping the poodle's braveness will rub off on me. I dunno..somehow I doubt it.


Lightning Strikes!!

The monsoons are here and a huge storm came through a couple days ago! I wasn't scared cuz I was in the house just hanging out in the hallway with the Nougat. Then it happened. An amazing blue flash and super loud crashing sound! LIGHTNING! I was fine till mom came running out of the bedroom screaming. She was freaked...so then I had to FREAK! (I've never seen mom scared before.) The lightning had hit in the front yard less than 15 ft from her window. We even heard the sizzling as the bolt hit. I started shaking and panting uncontrollably cuz mom and dad then went running outside (they thought the house was on fire for sure...but it wasn't.) Finally mom noticed how UPSET I was and sat down in the hallway to hug me. It was a scary moment. Nougat was nowhere to be found. He probably went to his favorite spot under the bed. We sat there for a while listening to the rain...aaahh the rain. I felt better cuz mom wasn't freaking out anymore. Her and dad were laughing at how loud she had screamed...ahhh laughter. Then I got happy. I guess it beats 110 degree heat.
