The lazy dog days

As the days go by, Bodi and Oliver have become friends… I won’t say great friends, Bodi always has a little bit of animosity towards Oliver – just that little edge, but all-in-all it’s much better. The two have taken to “owning” the sofa as they collect the last rays of sunlight in the late […]

The Dogs of Our Lives… II

A big thanks to all for the information and kind words. This is from our good friend (and the boys vet): “Here is my take on the matter: Since Bodi’s injury, there has been some disruption to the dominance hierarchy in your household. I think Bodi’s behavior represents his attempt to re-establish his dominance. As […]

From The Heart…

Saw this on another site and wanted to share it, I am not claiming to have written it, but it is beautiful, and comes from the heart… I stood by your bed last night …I came to have a peep. I could see that you’d been crying,and you found it hard to sleep. I whined […]

Tucker, and the tale of the “treat”

Many years ago Nancy , Tucker, and I were invited to our good friend Rick Hustead’s, where as a professional photographer Rick set us up in the studio and we started taking some pictures. Recently I pulled the CD out and took a look at the pictures again – it brings equal doses of laughter […]

The Joy Of the Toy… or… Who’s The Stupid One Now!!!

Has anybody else noticed this… You go out and spend hours picking just the right toy for your four legged kids, you spend a fortune to buy some toy with “Made in China” on it that lasts for half a day at most, you show everyone how cute the toy is and you revel in […]

Tucker, and his love for old cars

Tucker enjoyed every moment that he was allowed to spend with us, and we took advantage of that by taking him everywhere that we could.  I found these older pictures of a day that we took Tuck to a British Car Show and had to share them… The best part is that Nancy doesn’t even […]

Bodi and the Bling!

Check out our little Bodi!  We will now call him, “Mr. B” (like Mr. T)!  I love this pic… he is so cute. Jim thought it would be cute to put the different chain collars we had for both of the boys, on him.   He now wears Tuck’s chain… as it is the only […]

A Month Goes By…

Well, it’s been a month since we suddenly lost Tucker, it seems like it just flew by, and then at times it seems like it lasts forever… I just wanted to put up a little remembrance post, a little touch of Tucker’s love, companionship, incredible temperament, loyalty, great nature…, well, just a touch of Tuck-a-poo. […]

Tuck and Bodi in The Morning, Caught By The Sunbeam

These pictures were the final set of pictures that we took of Tucker with Bodi, as you can see – they both loved each other and, of course, loved the warmth of the sunbeam. It’s strange, but I think there are healing properties that you get when caught by the sunbeam – even if you […]

Time Heals…

I laugh sometimes at the emotions that we feel from losing a dog, how we can be so torn up, how we can be hurt even more from the loss of Tucker then we are in the loss of a family member.  But I know that dog people understand the loss, the love of a […]
