Ode to Tucker – our little “Boo”

T_ball croppedOde to Tucker, our little “Boo.”

Life is tough these days as we lost a member of our family last weekend.

The worn corner of the comforter where you slept nearly brings me to tears every time I go in the bedroom. It’s hard to eat dinner now as all of us miss you with your soft muzzle gently accepting handouts. For six years your candle burned bright. You loved each of us unconditionally and in your own special way, like no dog we’d had before.tbdoor

You reigned over your backyard daring the squirrels to trespass on your kingdom, but giving the birds a free pass, even the Mocking Bird who made a game of dive bombing you. The conch shells you enjoyed gnawing on lay scattered at the edge of the pool deck where you left them. Along with the flowers, your favorite sticks from the wood pile decorate your grave.

T8Time will merely dull the cavernous heartache and we’ll feel guilty for moving on as life requires, but will we will always love you with all of our hearts, our sweet and loving Tucker, aka “Boo.”

  1. My heart breaks with yours. Over my many years I’ve said goodbye to the best poochies ever especially Jesse girl, a hand me up pup from daughter. An endless array of dogs loved and trained with care by me and now more cats to say goodbye to. The pain lessens, softens, and eventually fades then rushes back to remind you of your loss.
    Know that I’m thinking of you and your family.
