Tuck, We Will Love You Forever
Tuck was born August 1995 and was freed from his aged body February 27, 2012. He was a friend and my brother for 16.5 years, loving me through many struggles and celebrations, including my marriage last year.
He was an athletic, stubborn lab that loved unconditionally. Tuck ran many miles with me. His love for running and walks endured until the end. His sweetness only grew as time went on.
We miss Tuck beyond words and I hope to run again with him some day. His end was inevitable and only hastened by a tumor that grew and eventually proved too much to carry around on his side. Our love for him led us to make the most painful decision to let him rest and escape the struggle that engulfed his body.
I have known no greater love. Thank you Tuck for being at my side and for always loving me unconditionally. Thank you for your strength and for seeing me through to a place in life where you knew I would be cared for and loved. Travel on baby boy, sweet gentle soul that you are.
