Keythink - Changing your mind changes everything.
Hi I’m Tucker. My first book had a great review. A mother of one of my readers was concerned by all my grammatical errors.
My dad and I think it’s important to always be willing to learn new things and not take things personally when people correct you. Dad says mom knows really good English. She studied English at Boston College. She majored in English and French! She learned good English in two languages. She could teach us good English!
Mom taught Emma good English. She is so smart! I can learn from her. Emma can you teach me good English? I also live with Tyler. He usually only speaks dog. He’s really good at it, but his English, not so much. He speaks one word English. “Food” or “Bone” are two of his favorite words. “Walk” maybe is his all-time favorite word. Bark. He likes to bark. He barks all the time. Especially in the car and sometimes I bark at him because he barks too much.
I don’t talk too much because I am a dog. People talk too much. My dad talk’s too much. He talks all the time. I understand some of the things he say. I love when he say, “Wanna go for a WALK?” It so much better than when he say, “No, you have to STAY.” I hate when he say, “No you have to STAY.” But when he say WALK it can be pretty great!
Hi I’m Tucker. My dad took this picture. He’s watching something called the Super Bowl. I like watching him watch football. It brings out the boy in him.
First there was Bootsie, then Pepi, then Sam, then Suzy, then Henry, then Gracie, now Tyler, Emma and Tucker. So blessed by the dogs who have raised me. My life has always been filled with copious amounts of mad dog love. Living with a dog or as part of a pack is how I choose to live.
Being responsible. Being able to respond. Being Response Able takes practice. Caring for another, caring for a dog is a huge responsibility. You are responsible for feeding and walking and cleaning-up every mess they make. Until it becomes an expression of love it will be hard work. Throughout my dog mastering experience the dog gives way more care, feeding and love to his forever friend than the master to his dog. I believe a human is incapable of giving love so completely like a dog. The intensity of their love is hard to articulate. My daughter said the other day when her mother bemoaned the short life of dogs, “It’s just them dog years Momma…” Dogs are living life seven times faster than us. “The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long.” Blade Runner.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my wonderful life with dogs.
