I love my dog.

I am so lucky to have my dog. Don't get me wrong, he can be a real pain in the ass. This potty training thing is out of control. He wreaks havoc on my apartment every time I leave. But really, he is a great great great dog!!

Tucker is 40 weeks old. According to

"The formula is: 10.5 dog years per human year for the first 2 years, then 4 dog years per human year for each year after."

So, he is 8.09 dog years old. Interesting.

Anyway, I thought I'd make a list of my 25 favorite things about my dog!

1. His name, Tucker. I thought long & hard about his name, but being able to call him Tucker the F***er is a great way to laugh when I am frustrated with him.

2. He lets me mess with him incessantly. He lets me pick at him & he always entertains my ridiculous photo ops!

3. His favorite activity is cuddling.

4. His favorite way to cuddle is with his chin draped over my arm/leg.

5. He is really good car companion!!

6. He is good on airplanes.

7. He has really bad separation anxiety. Though this can be a HUGE source of my frustration, it's really just a testament to how much he loves me.

8. He is really good at walks. He never chases birds or pulls me.

9. He follows me around everywhere I go.

10. He waits outside the shower for me.

11. He eats candy. Our favorite candy is both dum dums.

12. He lets Trynnity love him as much as she wants.

13. He gets really excited when someone comes to see him (me).

14. He always greets me at the door.

15. He like to chew concrete, which is just funny.

16. He has a "secret" hiding spot....under the cushion of one of my living chairs.

17. He loved me instantly!!!

18. He gives kisses when I tell him to.

19. He lets me dress him up, even though he is surely humiliated.

20. He has big ears. (I almost named him Bruce, like Bruce Wayne, because they look like Batman ears)

21. He lets me play with his hair.


Emo Hair...hahahahahahaha

22. He prefers beef flavor to chicken flavor, just like me!!!

23. He thinks he's a big dog. He loves to play with the big dogs & he thinks he has a very ferocious growl.

24. He always burps after he eats because he eats too fast!

25. He has the adorable head tilt down to a science!!!


  1. I want a dog like your dog! and the emo hair picture is my favorite! hahaha

  2. OMG! Tucker really is a cutie! Some days I think I'd like a little dog...and then I remember I have three one years olds! So much for the little dog! Cute post! I LOVE the head tilt!
