Tucker Dog's Victory Tour...
As I sit here with tears streaming down my face, it's almost impossible to come up with words that accurately express the love, adoration and admiration I have for our dog Tucker. He's been with Laura and I for almost eleven of his fourteen years on earth, and we're fortunate for every single day we've had with him.
Well, today is Tucker's final day. Tonight, Tucker's body will return to the Earth from which he was created, and his spirit will be free of a body that, of late, has been showing the wear of a lot of good miles traveled.
But today, we celebrate the life of a dog who, for a lot of people, rose well above being 'just a dog,' and was a teacher, companion, beacon of love and affection, a shoulder to cry on and was the best, most loyal friend anyone could ask for. I love him so much... I don't know what else to say.
Don't grieve for Tucker. Just know that he is a big part of who I am today, and he will not be forgotten. Ever.
