Tucker

I adopted Tucker on June 4, 2005, right after I graduated college. I remember the day I adopted him, I was in tears (sobbing, really) at Petsmart because he had jumped out of the cart and was running wild around the store. It took a good 10 minutes to finally catch him. I remember thinking, oh my gosh, I never should have gotten a dog. Tucker has been my best friend ever since that day. He has helped me through three years of grad school and countless life events. He loves car rides, running around the backyard, squeaky toys, TREATS, snuggling with his humans, and reminding his humans of his meal times.
In January of 2010, I came home from work to find Tucker pulling himself around by his front legs. His back half/ legs were paralyzed. Of course we rushed to the emergency vet, who performed a laminectomy (I think?) on his slipped disc. The doctor did a great job because Tucker recovered in about 4-6 weeks. I slept on the floor with him for a month so he wouldn't try to get up/ move by himself at night. I wouldn't have it any other way.
In February of 2011, Tucker had another flare-up of back pain. We ended up getting Tucker the laser disc ablation procedure in Dallas. He was up and walking the next day and has had no back problems since that procedure (knock on wood). I was very impressed with the laser disc ablation and may consider it for our other dachshund, if needed.

In sum, I just wanted to say thank you for letting me adopt Tucker from your organization and to let you know that he is loved (he is my BABY).
