End of an Era

Today is hard.  Harder than I ever would have imagined.  We knew it was coming.  But reality is different. 

Today we said goodbye to our first "child", Tucker the Pug. 

We got him when we were still so young - Fall of 2001.  He was a pound dog.  We had no idea about pugs but just thought he was too cute to pass up on.

He made it into every early family photo.

He survived 4 moves with us

He brightened our day with his cuteness

He loved to go on hikes

He has made countless trips to the Lake with us.  Or as we used to call it for him, "Camp"

He loved laying on the beach in the sun

Early on he liked dashing through the snow.  Not so much as he got older.  I think he was wise there.

He lived through the addition and loss of Libby.

He has lived through the addition of not just one child

But two.

And today his little body just gave out.  He has lived a good life and will be dearly missed. 

It truly is the end of an era.

Goodbye my friend.  Tell Libby we said hello.


  1. so sorry our dog Flair has been with us since 2002 and don't know what we would do without him!

  2. Oh Tracey... I am so sorry! :(

  3. Sooooo so sorry, my friend. Nice eulogy with great pictures... Sweet Tucker will be sorely missed, I know.
