Anyway, so the rough part of my year was this past Spring/Summer.
I am slowing down. My walks have to be shortened because I wear out fast. This summers I was on a long walky and stepped on the wrong side of my foot. Momma cried. It didn't bother me at all but my Vet says I am "rounding third" and things like this happen when old men like me get tired. Plus I'm a big boy at 175lbs and 37 1/2" to my withers. But, I is happy to say that it only happened the once and I can still play a mean game of tug with brother almost every night.
Oh and I had a bunny, yep a bunny
Sees it right there? Yeah well bunny tormented me all springs. I barked and barked but Bunny didn't care. Well did you know that if you barks and barks and jumps around so much you can makes yourself sore? Well, you cans. I sprained my tail. Yep it happened and it wasn't pretty. My tail looked like it was dead- it just hung - and it hurt. I wasn't really ables to sit down or lay down properly and I acted like my life was over. Momma and Dad took me to the ER and I got evaluated. They gave me some pain medicine and after a couple weeks I started to makes improvement. My vet upped my old man pills and I've been doing great since. My tail doesn't go all the way up like it use to but I can wag, lay, and sit now.
So I did get a few Summer Adventures in!
Also, for my birthday in October we went to Beach - I turned 8 so we needed to celebrate in style. We stayed at a camp for a couple nights and walked the beaches.
We do adventures on the weekend, but I spend my weekdays napping in the sun. Not that rough of a life I guess :)
I gots a new Teddy for Christmas, I still loves toys!
As this winter goes on brudder and I spend our times hanging out and enjoying each day. Momma and Dad knows that every day with me is a gift cause the Tucker can't lives forever in the flesh. I'm not gonna lie, the extra pets and loves are pawesome! I should have gotten old years ago.
So here is to me, the Tucker! Over 8 and still happy, playing, and enjoying life! Here is to more years to come and embracing every day with a some ear pets, bum scratchies, kisses, and cookies. I love you all that have continued to follow me on my life's journey and I will keep you posted! I miss all my friends that have passed before me and I honor them by enjoying my time with my brudder and my hoomans. Happy New Year to all of you in blog land, we hopes you have a fulfilling 2017 with health, happiness, and good belly rubs.
