Tucker's
first agility trial at 10 and a half years of age!
Pictured with Tucker Creek's Hurricane Penny & Jasper Lil' Bear of Tucker Creek


And "doing tunnels" at 12 years of age!

Most people grow older with fond memories of their canine "best friend" when they were growing up.
Not only has Tucker become my best friend over the years we've been together, he also has given my daughter Madison a wonderful "best friend"
and protector since she was a little girl, he truly has changed our lives.


To watch Tuck and Maddy, and to know that she is safe with him, is a wonderful thing.

And now, several years later, Tucker is "best friend" to our Ben!

Tuck is a gentleman, a fair player, an honest soul and the master of play, one has little chance of being anything but positive in his company.  We are proud of his accomplishments and always revel in the praises he receives from all who meet him.

Tucker gained his WTCH in 2002 and works daily on our farm, helping me with chores that truly would be a "chore" without him, and is equally as happy to "help out"  Maddy in the show ring...He definitely is an all-round kinda boy!


Tucker inspired me to change my life and is an extraordinary creature. He inspires those who meet him into Tucker puppies - a real ambassador for the breed.

Tucker, our wonderful 10 year old Ambassador had some awesome wins at the 2003 Nationals...
~ 1st in nationals Agility – Veterans
~ 4th in the breed ring at a Nationals Pre-show in American Bred
~ 3rd in Novice A obedience
(our first time ever competing in ASCA obedience) and there were only 3 qualifying dogs out of 17 entered

At the Superdogs competition in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Tucker was selected as one of the top eight in Thunder Bay for his great tricks.  Tucker was in the top 5 finalists and by the applause meter for the final win - Tucker came in second to our Maggie!

Tucker, along with Flash and Maggie, were all asked to be part of the Superdogs actual performances over the 6 shows on the weekend, proving once again what a versatile dog this awesome fella is!!
