I've always been a dog person. While you get to know
my better through these blogs; you'll know I'm a horse person too (I have 3 and counting….). But there's two kinds of people. For one, you have your dog people. And then you have your people whom you can't trust. While I have nothing against cats, I have cats. But for me, dogs will always prevail.
With that little preface up there, I now introduce you to my dog, Tucker.
Tucker is a 4 year old, Australian Shepherd x Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. Topping in at just about 70 pounds, he is my right-hand-man.
Tucker was not bought from a pet store, nor was adopted from a shelter. He was simply a puppy needing a home. While at college at the University of Kentucky, I found a Craigslist ad for puppies that needed homes. A lovely family in a rural area of Kentucky had a blue
merle Aussie show up on their property, and took her in. A few short weeks later; she popped out fifteen puppies. The family did the most loving thing, they wanted to find good homes for the puppies and keep the mom. So I drove myself out to the mountains of Kentucky, and as the first one there- I had my pick of the litter. I gave them a "donation" to help spay the mom and continued back to my college apartment with my new puppy.
|The day he came home! How could you not be in love!?|
|Just a bit older.|
|He got SO big, SO fast.|
|I shall call this his "awkward phase".|
|Full grown Tucker. This is how I fall asleep and wake up every morning. And I definitely don't hate it!|
I felt the need to introduce you to Tucker, because wherever I go, he goes. He is a huge part of my life. I love to go running with him, take him for hikes, let him run around at the barn. He'll be making an appearance on this site because simply put; I'm obsessed with my dog.
So why not give you all some reviews on
some thing Tucker likes? After all, this blog will have everything on it. Tucker is a monster with his toys, so I take reviews seriously. I found the things that I like, and stopped buying the crap that was created for my dog to waste my money kill in the matter of minutes.
