Tucker returns

Tucker unexpectedly came back today. Then later I thought for a while that he was going back to his people. But ended up staying with me — at least for the next 2 weeks. There’s a smallish story behind all that but I’ll save it for another day. I was glad to see him again. It was a little late in the day to be taking photos by the time I got to these so I knew the image quality would be affected. But it’s still Tucker.

Teddy’s style evolves

I’ve written about Teddy a few times, most recently here where I discuss how I knew he was ready to go home.

The pattern was familiar: Dog walkers with harried looks asking me when I’m going to take Teddy home. Lisa faithfully taking Teddy to the park for a good workout every day (because Teddy knows she’s the boss). Many volunteers taking him to a yard because he’s too much for them…
