TUCKER IS HOME!!!
Tucker came home on Alaska Airlines Flight 751 on Friday, December 7.
He was very happy to hear our voices and said some quick hellos, but then needed to get outside to pee (7 hours in the crate from St Louis to Seattle!).
He had been gone from me for 5 1/2 weeks and I wish he could tell me the whole story,
but for now just having him follow me everywhere, with his big smile and wagging tail, keeps a grin on my face and a smile in my heart.
He was found 20 miles from where he was lost. He showed up in a man's yard on a Thursday morning.
Five days later, he was finally able to hook a leash to Tucker's collar and read his dog tags.
My friends in O'Fallon, Illinois went to pick him up and took care of him until we could decide the best way to get him home.
Thank you to everyone who has read my requests for transport for Tucker. Because he is shy, I think the commercial flight turned out to be the best for him.
He lost about 8 pounds and has a couple of new battle scars, but his personality is the same - he loves playing with his toys, laying on one of his three dog beds, and going everywhere I go.
I am just so happy to have him home again!!
