It is with a heavy heart that we said Goodbye to our beloved Tucker today.  He was amazing and I am so blessed to have had almost 10 years with him.  He will live in our hearts forever and those that loved him.

Thank you all for being a part of his journey.

Love - The Momma, Tyson, Rugen, and Vader

Not so good news from the Tucker

Hello All -
The Tucker man is still around.  I am happy but I need to let my friends know that I have been diagnosed with bone cancer. This is news that nobody wants to hear and it breaks my Family's heart.  I am 9 1/2 and as a 180lb Great Dane I am still around. That is a blessing, but cancer is a terrible curse.  It is my right front leg and we cannot amputate.  I am too arthritic to support my body weight in the front with a single leg. 

I have had a very good year.  Lots of adventures and fun with my brudder Tyson.  Cuddles with my momma and games of tug with my Dad.  I am spoiled and I am loved.  More importantly, I am on pain medicine and I am still happy.  Many of my original bloggy friends have already passed to the rainbow bridge.  I understand that I have an invitation now, I am not ready to come so I plan to shows up a little late.  Momma will let you all know how my progress goes - but for now, live every day - like I always do.

love always
woof - Tucker

Happy New Year from the Tucker!

Hi All, remember me?  Yeah the old man Tucker is still going strong.  I've had a pretty rollercoaster year but I finished it off strong.  So, I figured I'd check in and lets you all knows that I is still around.

The little bugger Tyson is doing great - he's 190lbs! Ok enough about him.  On to ME!

 I gots new PJs so I can looks like my brother, BOL!

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.

The Tucker is still going strong!

 I is so sorry that I don't bloggy anymore, it's just this thing happened.  Momma calls it life.
First things first, the good news:
I is healthy at 7 1/2.
Tyson is healthy. (Although he has rabid dog drools all the time).
Momma and Dad are healthy.
Rugen and Vader are healthy.
Now the bad news.  This September I lost my Grampy (Momma's Dad).  He was my favorite person.  The terrible cancers took him aways and I miss him dearly.  He helped raised me and always took care of my momma too.  There is lots of sadness still and we all miss him terribly.
But we knows that life is to be cherished for the time we has, so we are trying out bestest to stay strong and enjoy things.

We did have some fun times this past year.  Momma and Dad even tooks us to Vermont to Dog Mountain.  We went to celebrate my birfday back in October and it was so much fun.
They have this chapel where you pay tribute to all pets that left before us.
But they have trails to run on, a whole Mountain devoted to dogs!
It was the best day of the year for us.
I dressed up as a King for Halloween this year.
I only gots a few toys for Christmas, which Momma made me shares with brudder.
And although winter hasn't been terribly cold here in Maine, we still await Spring so that we can bask in the sun on the deck.
Hopefully this Spring and Summer brings lots of funs and adventures for me and Tyson. 
We'll keep smiling!

We think it's Spring?

Wowee what a rough winter of snow.  We've been trapped inside for much of it! I've been limited to my adventures and most are related to sitting in the car while momma gets an errand done. 
We've gotten a boat load of snow this winter and I can't be outside very long in it.  It gets stuck between my toes and makes my feets hurt.  The walkies adventures I did get to go on I had to wear my boots.  I don't mind them but Dad says I look foolish like I is in a marching band.
Brudder Tyson thinks the snow is fabulous.  He's such a weirdo, must be a mastiff thing.
 He's all grown up now and is definitely my bestest buddy.  He's always freaking happy.
And he has to be next to me or the hoomans all the times, he's a shadow doggie.
We spend time playing everyday. Momma says he keeps me young.
 I still needs my beauty rest though.
I'm hoping Spring will bring some sunshine and adventures!
