IMG_3311P1016356 what were we thinking..we live in a third floor condo..up and down the stairs at least 18-20 times a day to take this little bundle outside to do his business..he refused to pee or poop on newspaper..or puppy pads…and it was ‘white outside’..all he knew was to go on the ‘snow’ got to the point that once the snow started to melt..he wouldn’t go on the grass ..he would find one little patch of snow…and there he would go…

(thanks for the blog idea SAM…the blogger block is over for now)


  1. An adorable blog. Loved it. it is a dog's world after all...

  2. And what a blog it is, I hope someday we get to meet and Tucker can meet Rigg's, Rigg's is very social with other dog's even other males, I had one police dog male, that just didn't like other males, took a little bit to break him of that at the doggie academy. Isn't it amazing how they come into our homes as little fur balls about 3 or 4 pounds and in a year they are seven year old boys in an adult body, I still think when God designed Lab's and Goldens he took a regular dog that liked water and added a turbocharger. Rigg's has a little devil in him too, he is a stealer extrordanaire.Be safe up there in the north country. Sam & Donna.

  4. OMG! Potti training a pup from the third floor? You sure got your exercise! :)

  5. Never met a human being yet that I liked better than a dog. (except my wife of course:))

  6. A very handsome dog indeed! We wish you many years with a happy, healthy pooch.

  7. That cute little puppy sure turned out to be a great looking young dog. Tucker seems to lead a very nice, comfortable life what with "his bed" and all.

  8. Tucker sure has been a beautiful dog from Day #1. Thanks for showing us his "baby book" pics.

  9. Tucker IS a handsome "devil"...I'm sure he has all the women dogs drueling big dog lips over him....
    ...and yes, is now time for my flannel "uniform" during cocktail hour by the fire....I'll be sure and post some pics..

  10. Tucker is such a cutie pie! Obviously a very spoiled-rotten dog.
