Although Tucker, a black and white Dalmatian, was not a beagle he was an active beagle rescue volunteer! In his capacity as Foster Guidance Counselor at the Abely home, Tucker helped foster many, many beagles. He was the first dog I'd put with fosters and he did great with them: helped them to adjust to new surroundings and a good home life. Tucker shared his home with three beagles Teddy, Brandy and Pebbles and made a mission of keeping all beagles he knew well exercised. Tucker was one of a kind, half human, half cat and he loved his cats with a passion.
In his world the best things in life were:
Riding in the truck to get hay, pig ears, tennis balls, grooming "his" cat Roscoe P., baby chicks in the spring, "his" couch, "his" woodstove, his ears cleaned, trail rides with the horses- especially Sugar, "his" farm since 1998, being photographed, the bank (AKA dog bone dispenser), and especially: going to work with me on Fridays.
Tucker was my best friend since the day I saw him. He got his canine good citizen at 9 months old, was therapy dog certified at 1 1/2 years old. At Children's Hospital, in Boston where he went once a month, he would patiently sit on a chair next to a sick child while they had their picture taken. The children called him Pongo. Tucker was also an international traveler, joining me to visit my family on Prince Edward Island. He particularly loved the ferry ride. He loved to sit in the driveway and look down the road starting at 4:15 each day waiting patiently for me to return from work and I will miss seeing him there!
I'm proud to have him on the tribute page so that I can share his wonderful life with others. Tucker was my special furry friend, who accomplished a great deal in his 14 1/2 years and lived his life to the fullest. His passing is a huge void in the lives all that knew him.
