Arrival Story:
Shortly after we adopted our first pet; Bogey, we took him to the vet for a check-up. The vet said because Bogey was so shy, he needed a buddy to help bring him out of his shell. So we went back to Little Shelter. We told them what the vet said. I remembered the pups that I tried to look at the night we got Bogey. Some of those pups were still there. My wife wanted a female this time. So they brought out a cute female to meet us and Bogey. But shy little Bogey played too rough her and she didn't like it. So out next came another male. They played together wonderfully! And when the playing got rough, each pup gave as good as he got. Everyone felt it was a perfect match. So home we went with our second boy. They are also half brothers. They came from a family that had three females and one male, and each female had a litter one month apart. Bogey and Tucker shared the same father, but had different mothers. They are two months apart in age. ON August 9, 2008 our Tuck Tuck left us to be God's right hand dog. It was sudden, unexpected and devestating. He was just seven years old. We are left with huge holes in our hearts. He always had had top notch medical care, the greatest diet, treats and toys, a huge yard to play in and the most loving family a dog could have. Saying that we miss him is not enough. There are NO words to explain this or our grief. We love you, Tuck a Muck. How we wish we could kiss your face again. Tucker: ALWAYS LOVED, ALWAYS REMEMBERED, and FOREVER MISSED!

After we adopted Bogey & Tucker we would make occasional visits to Little Shelter so everyone could see how well they were doing. Each time the staff would comment on how much bigger Tucker had gotten since he was there last. They would call him "The incredible growing dog". He got so big, we were going to change his name to Clifford! Okay, he didn't get THAT big. But I am just over 6 ' tall, and he can stand on his hind legs, put his paws on my shoulders and look me in the eye!

My first Anniversary in Heaven

Today marks the one year anniversary of my journey to Heaven.
I look down from above and see that my family still cries for me.
It has been a most trying year for all of you. I know I left so suddenly and it was a very, very hard thing to do, but I knew that a quick exit was the best way for all of us. And I know that you found that out only three days after I had to go.

I try to send you signs to let you know that I am still with you all. I am a lucky guy to know that not only do you keep me in your hearts, but I do the same! There is never a moment that you aren't with me.

Mom says she doesn't know when the pain will hurt less but that lets me know how much I really meant to her. Dad is just plain sad. He holds in his emotion, but I can tell that he misses me; his TUCK -a- MUCK as much as mom does.

Bogey, my brother, I haven't forgotten you. I saw you at the dog park yesterday. I sent a Great Dane over to you and to mom to let you know that my spirit follows you wherever you go. I asked that Dane to jog over to you and nudge you both with her big head..just like I used to do. Do you think there would have been THREE Great Danes in the same place at the same exact time with you if I hadn't been there too? You know it was me, don't you Momma? You asked the dog's guardian how old she was and the answer was she was young...just about to be one year old. That was no coincidence!

Dante: I'm proud to say that you are showing that you can be a really good and loving boy as you age. I see that you still want to take over as top dog but listen, Dude, that AIN'T gonna happen. I can see everything from up here and I'm not going to let you be in charge. Get it? I may not be there in the flesh, but I'm still the BIGGEST dog in the house and what I say goes! Do we understand each other??????

Parker: Please be brave. You are a handsome boy and I am proud to call you brother. You survived that horrific life you endured prior to being rescued...and you have become a loving and faithful boy to mom and dad. You keep up the good work. I know you are spending a lot of time sleeping in my spot on the bed but that is OK with me. I am sending my bravery and confidence energy to you each and every day. You are a credit to the Rottweiler breed!

Dearest and beloved family, I promise to always be here waiting for you. I make it my pledge to watch over you through the good times and the bad times. I know how much you love and miss me and will come running to find me here when it is time. I will NEVER leave you again.

Tuck Tuck, we will NEVER EVER EVER forget you, either!
With all our love,
Mom, Dad, and brothers Bogey, Dante and Parker.


Three months have passed

Three months ago Tucker crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge . Today is the first day that I have been able to get enough courage to write about the life, love and loss of our beloved boy.
The emotions run deep; deeper than I would have ever thought they could. The words heart, love, angel, protector and soul mate are just a few nouns off the top of my head that describe the glory of Tuck Tuck. Those who have had the pleasure of meeting him, know exactly what I'm talking about.
The overwhelming sadness that I experience each day since his passing brings a rush of tears to my eyes and a heaviness to my heart. I just hope, Tuck -A -Muck , that you know how much I miss and love you.

I never want to forget you or what you have done to help me become a better person. You are a part of me; a part that will be forever grateful for the way you lived your life while on Earth and how in the end you thought ONLY of me when you had to leave us.

I love you so much my big boy. Please save me a place in heaven where the meadow meets the sea and watch for me to come to be with you again. Please take care of Mr. Salomon and all the other pets that have blessed my life.

YOU, my dearest boy, have left your BIG paw prints on MY heart!
Love, Mom
