And what to my wondering eyes

should appear, but my neighbor's dog Tucker, who has funny ears!

Every now and then Buzz goes completely ape while looking out the window. He does that because Tucker not only knows how to *unlock and open* the back door of his own home, but how to sneak into Buzz's yard! Of course I let Buzz out to have a wrestle with his buddy. : ) I realize that I am, in essence, rewarding Tucker for his bad escape-y ways, but I figure that it keeps Tucker from running off towards busy streets and Tucker lets me leash him walk him home after the boys have worn each other out.

(what is this move?)


Today, we had a nice fresh layer of snow and Buzz and I were about a half mile from home when Tucker came running up the sidewalk to join us! What a surprise. Good thing I carry an extra leash!

I called Tucker's home from my cell phone and no one answered, so I left a message, and took Tucker to the woods with us where there were many fine things to smell...

and chase...

and then Buzz leashed up Tucker, and I leashed up Buzz and we went back to our street.

No one was home yet at Tucker's house (yes, I did close the door for them).

But after a few minutes in the yard, one of Tucker's boys appeared and took him home.

Until next time, Tuck!

By the way, yes the computer is back up and running and I can now get images off of my proper camera. It's funny, but not having seen full size images of Mr. Buzz for a while, I've been giggling at how happy he looks in so many of them. What a poopsie.

Tucker is a beauty, but - yep! - he has funny ears! They seem to suit him, though.
