When Mommy and Daddy got married, she told him that she wanted to get a Golden Retriever when they got their own house, so a few months after Leo came to live with them, they contacted their friends at Ox Kill Farm http://www.shirehorse.net/, where they raise Shire horses and Goldens, and told them to save a puppy for them. Tucker was born March 18, 2004, and he came to live in Florida in late May, 2004. He got to fly on an airplane when he was a puppy, and that was when Mommy knew she got the perfect dog, because he behaved himself the whole time on the plane, and never made a peep. This is Tucker just before they left the farm to go to the airport.
This is Tucker hanging out in the kitchen of our Florida house.

After Mommy and Daddy got Tucker, Daddy realized that Mommy was right, and Goldens are the perfect dogs, and he asked Vicky at Ox Kill to put their name on the puppy list again, so when Tucker's sister Shamie had her first litter on May 10, 2006, Ox Kill's Shamrock's Lucky Daisy was born, and she came to live with us in July, 2006. This is Daisy the first week she lived with us. She has always been food motivated.
Daisy loves her uncle Tucker, and they have been inseparable since she met him, though he was not sure about her at first. He is such a good boy though, he was the perfect uncle.
Leo has always been Tucker's buddy, and here he is meeting the newest member of the family.
In late 2006, we all moved to Massachusetts. Soon we will post pictures of where Tucker and Daisy go for our walk most days. Leo stays home safe inside, there are many coyotes here.
Bye for now.
Tucker, Daisy and Leo
