Embodying the true spirit of January, he is now officially Pet of the Month for January 2011! Keep reading to learn more about this month’s winner!
How Did Tucker Come Into Your Life?
He was a gift from my husband. I had always wanted a Border Collie to teach agility, herding and compete in competitions with. However, none of that ever happened. When he was only six-months-old, we found out Tucker had hip dysplasia. I contacted the breeder for advice, who said she would exchange Tuck for another puppy, but I replied that she needed her head examined. Tucker was part of the family, whom I loved dearly! After his surgery I began teaching him tricks and a few months later he passed his CGC test and became a certified therapy dog. He is a tremendous hit whenever we go visiting and he always enjoys meeting new people. There is not enough time or words to describe how much Tucker means to us and everyone who meets him. He is one of a kind!
Favourite Winter Thing:
Oh, it’s gotta be Frisbee or ball!
All sorts, especially the sqeaky ones.
Stacking baby rings in the correct order.
Christmas! He dresses up as “Tucker Claus” and visits people, spreading Christmas cheer!
If Tucker were a human, his profession would be….
Something where he would be helping people forget their problems for a while and have fun!
January may be over, but February is now here! If you would like to nominate a pet pal for next month’s “Pet of the Month” contest, please email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org!
