Arrival Story:
We brought Tucker home from a small town called Ramona, CA. He had seven littermates and was adorable from day one when we got him. He's our special little boy and we loved him so much we brought home his brother Roscoe 5 months later. They are the joy of our lives and we couldn't imagine our lives without them!

Bio:
Tucker is the cutest dog who looks like a minature pony since he's so large. He has tiny eyes and a big rubber nose. He loves to go to the beach, retrieve his toy and will swim through the biggest waves to get to it! In his spare time Tucker and his brother Roscoe have done several modeling shoots for Big Dog clothing. They have been featured in several catalogs and also posters in the retail stores. Tucker is a huge Laker fan like his grandma. Tucker loves his baby brother Barney and they play together a lot!

Here are the rules (Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1- I love to go to the beach every morning and retrieve in the ocean.
2-I worry a lot and have grey hair, but my brother Roscoe doesn't worry, so he doesn't have grey hair.
3-I sleep on the bed and think I own it and the other two dogs shouldn't be up on it with me.
4-I love my mommy, more than my daddy, shhhh....
5-I still am taking fluconazale to battle my Valley Fever, but have been so much better than a year ago.
6-I don't drool as much as my brother Roscoe.
7-I weigh 112 lbs.

The dogs I'm tagging are: Kahle, Tucker, Jack, Ivy, Jace McNee, Clyde and Belle.

 

Getting Strong

I was diagnosed with Valley Fever October 2005. It was a challenging to figure out what was wrong with me since I don't live in the areas or areas where it is most prevalent (Arizona and other hot, arid places), but do frequent the Mojave Desert when my family goes dirt bike riding.

I was on Ketoconazale for several months, but lost my appetite and lost about 10 lbs. My vision was next to go and we were really worried, so worried we went and had an MRI done, but luckily found out it had not invaded my spinal cord. My vision was getting worse when my vet Doctor Casuess (Best Vet in Santa Barbara) at White's Pet Hospital changed my medication to Fluconazale (generic for Diflucan) and now I'm getting a lot better and my vision is also improving.

Luckily, the generic brand for Diflucan is available since it is the most effective drug for "Valley Fever", but in the past had been extremely expensive.

The symptoms for me were large lump growths that resembled tumors and took several visits and tests to diagnose.

Be persistent since the results can be fatal if not treated.

Barney has finally won over my heart. He's actually pretty cute and a lot of fun to play with. I have to be super careful since he is so small and I am so big.

This morning my dad was headed to work, and was saying good bye, and telling us to be good. My brother Roscoe had a sad face, so sad, my dad decided to go into work late and take us to the beach.

We are all so spoiled!
