Update on Tucker (from Katie)

Hi all, Katie here on behalf of my little big brother Tucker who is right now fast asleep after a long day of visitors. Our humans had a big birthday party here and everyone wanted to see his owies. He's such a trooper and just let people look without complaining. Then everyone settled down and they put some tiny little human in the room with him to be quiet and sleep, so he was really happy. He wanted me to tell you that he got the tubes out. They were for drainage. He didn't like it when Momma put that liquid stuff on that fizzes up, but he let her do it anyway when she told him it might get infected and he'd have to wear that cone longer. Our Daddy keeps taking the cone off of him, then when Tucker starts licking again back it goes. Momma is very thankful for all of your warm thoughts and she keeps telling him how many friends he has that are thinking about him and wanting to see his cute face again. He's walking really good now so I bet it won't be long before he's running and hopping up and down like he used to do!

Happy wags...


  1. This is such good news, Katie. We can just imagine Tucker in the quiet room with the humanpup. You tell him that his momma is right ... we are REALLY looking forward to seeing him up and about again. All healed up.

    We hope it was a happy birthday party. It sure sounds like it was. Did Tucker get a tiny piece of cake?

    Thanks for keeping us posted. We're still sending gobs of love and healing wishes.

    Your wirey pals,
    Jake and Fergi

  8. Hey Katie,
    You and Charlie keep an eye on Tucker and don't let him get hurt or lick his sutures, but don't overdo it. Tucker needs to get his grid orientated by HIMSELF. He is a very courageous dog and he will make the best of his situation. Be there for him when he needs you but let him be self sufficient.
