Tucker

When we are asked how we picked the name Tucker, we tell people that Tucker picked the name himself. He was adopted as "Scout" in November 2014 after being hours away from euthanization at the Ocala shelter due to heartworm. He didn't seem like a Scout and would not respond to it. We spent the first night home with him going down the list of top 100 dog names. "Hey Buddy, Hey Max!," but still no response. When I said, "Hey Tucker" he picked up his head, cocked his ears, and happily walked right over to me for an ear scratch. Tuck Tuck has brought us so much joy and we feel like we won the dog lottery with him!
