My Dog Tucker.......
born September 22, 1999....died at noon today, January 24, 2009
As you can see...it looks like a large bandage around is belly but it actually was a diaper. Tucker had become totally incontinent and had to wear a diaper continuously. The duct tape that we had to use to keep the diaper on slowly pulled out all his belly hair. I hated to say good bye to him...after I took these pictures this morning he got up (I was sitting on the floor) and came right over to my face and tried to lick me. I took the chicken way out and left my hubby to take him to the vet.......I took off in the car and came back later when everything was done.
He was a good and loyal dog....many people feared him...he could be very intimidating...he was a large black Lab, who would throw himself at our front door when salesmen came by....but he was soft and gentle and let my grandchildren sit on him....I was never fearful when hubby had to go away on a trip because I knew Tucker wouldn't let anything come in the house. One time my nephew tried to come in the front door without knocking...well, in a flash Tucker was there and believe me, my nephew never ran so fast...but not before Tucker ripped his shirt.
Dear Tucker.....a loyal friend. I already miss you.
