Tucker went straight to his dad when he got home
He would go sound to sleep...

Two peas in a pod
they were always together.

From the first day home...
Mulligan let Tucker get away with anything

Christmas long ago 1996
This is one of the many trys..what can I say I was still a kid.

Needless to say this one did not get to be in the Christmas Cards that year..It was an all day job trying to get all of us smiling and looking at the camera together. Rick made a recording of his voice , trying to fool the boys into looking at that little box. After a lot of bad pictures through out the years we learned to have a friend stand behind the camera and show ^Mulligan^ and ^Tucker^ treats...they smiled then...

  There is nothing like a Golden Retreiver blanket to keep you warm on those cold weather nights....
  My ^Boys^ were just over grown lap dogs.  But we wouldn't of had it any other way.
 From sharing our chairs to sharing our bed, we all loved being close...

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

Mullie..trying to please me

See You Late Little Friend
Oh, little friend, do you recall,
When you made this house your home?
You were just a ball of fluff,
Not even halfway grown.

You stumbled when you learned to walk,
It was hard to steer four legs;
You learned to sit, and stay, and come,
And, of course, you learned to beg.

You loved those walks we used to take,
You never left my side;
And if I got my car keys out,
You were ready for a ride.

You sensed when I was happy,
Or was feeling kind of low;
You'd rub up against my knee,
You always seemed to know.

You'd fetch a ball or get a toy,
Without even being told;
But, was your face crestfallen,
If I felt the need to scold.

You found the outside world exciting,
Do you remember your first snow?
You'd not come back inside the house,
Because you loved it so.

Going to the vets for shots,
I guess was your greatest fear;
You seemed to know each scheduled date,
Though you went but once a year.

You were afraid of lightening, too,
And of booming thunderstorms;
You'd run and jump upon my bed,
Where it was safe and warm.

I never once felt lonely,
As long as you were here;
You were at my feet or on my lap,
You constantly were near.

Oh, I am going to miss you,
No question about that;
But, little one, for your pain to go,
I had to send you back.

You're going back to heaven now,
From whence long ago you came;
You'll be welcomed back by God, Himself,
Who knows your doggy-name.

I think there's Frisbees up in heaven,
And rubber, squeaky toys;
And angels who will play with you,
And little girls and boys.

But, there won't be any thunderstorms,
And no vets with shots up there;
You won't even need a leash,
You'll run freely in God's air.

And when my time on earth is done,
And at heaven's gate I'm near,
I don't want any harps or horns,
Just ... happy barks to hear.

So, see you later, little friend,
I'm glad you're now pain-free;
And I'm glad you're sitting next to Jesus,
Now ... you wait right there for me.

this is the picture I always have
in my wallet..they go where I go

Tucker was out playing in the snow...
wrapped him up to get warm...ain't he cute. :)

1997...snow and water their two favorites
So healthy and free of worry.
