Arrival Story:
Tux was at PetsMart on an adoption day. I just went to look at the dogs and I came home with him. He was only 7 wks old.

Tux has been the most devoted companion for the past 11 years. Up until the past few months he would always be at the door to greet me when I came home. Now if he's not there I have to go greet him. Age is creeping up on him and he doesn't always feel like moving around to much. On November 15, 2007, Tux was laid to rest. I miss my devoted friend.

My name is Tux and I am an 11 yr. old Lab-Mix. I have 3 Spinone Italiano girls that I live with. They all know I'm "top dog" around here. That youngest one, Angel, can sure be a pest sometimes. I don't know why she kisses me every morning. I have arthritis so I don't like to play with the girls anymore but I can't seem to make Angel understand that. I always have to get mad at her to make her leave me alone. I like to take rides in the van but have trouble getting in so my mom bought me a ramp. I just take it one day at a time and lay around and sleep pretty much now. What else is there for an old guy to do?
