A few weeks ago, I wrote about how Calvin was extra nice to Tucker, when the dog had to wear the Cone of Shame.
Poor Tucker. When his foot got better and it finally seemed like he could be coneless and free, he injured a toenail.
Coned once again.
But by then, Tucker was used to the it. He didn’t like it, but he started to figure out how to live life as a conehead.
He chased squirrels.
Maybe too much.
He went on patrol with Jasper and Lilah.
He found a way to play ball.
He enjoyed good sniffs.
And discovered some that were pungent enough to roll in.
And roll he did.
The Unstoppable Tucker. Never let it said that this dog was stopped by a cone. He just found a way to work around it.
I wish I had just a little of his acceptance, his perseverance, and his joy.
