Tucker is our daughter's dog, and we gladly provide doggy daycare for him when needed.
I don't think I've ever known a happier, more content, easy-going dog.
Look, he even smiles in his sleep.
The only time he's the least bit bothersome is at meal time, and even then his "bothering" consists of a happy dance around the feet of whomever he thinks is going to feed him.
No matter the time of year (even when his belly drags in the snow), he's always willing to go for a walk to get the mail or take a position on the front deck or back porch supervising whatever activity is going on.
For a smaller dog, he's got a big bark which would be a good thing, but he only uses it to say hello when someone he knows comes to the house. We've tried to teach him to alert us to strangers and/or roaming wild animals, but haven't been successful.
He's definitely a lover, not a fighter. And that's just fine.
Good boy, Tucker, good boy!
