Tucker is a rescue dog, from the Ayres Animal Shelter, in Randall, NY. He's a purebred, but that doesn't matter to me. HE matters to me. I lost my cocker spaniel in Aug. of 2009 and was NEVER EVER getting another dog. Then I saw Tucker's face on the Ayres Animal Shelter web site and that was it. I brought him home 4 days later and I'd be lost without him. He's always happy to see me come in the door, whether I've been at work, or just taking out the garbage. He loves me unconditionally and I love him to the moon and back.
