Tucker McBride

Return to a time when a boy could be a boy; when life was more clear from the top branch of a tree; when a kid could trade anger and disappointment for action and adventure; when the whole neighborhood was his playground; and the sloppy kiss from a dog could make everything right.

A Dog in the House

As you know from reading the first book, Tucker McBride, Gramma used Joe, the war dog, for many things. She sent him across the street to the grocery store with a note and money attached to his collar. The grocer tied a package of hamburger to the leather and Joe brought it safely home.

The new puppy at our house is smart and learning many new things. We put an old alarm clock on top of her sleeping crate, so she could hear the beat of her momma's heart. Tuckie pushed her tiny paw through an opening in the top and turned on the alarm tab. We were awakened at 4:30 AM that morning. 

Yesterday, my husband helped Tuckie watch the Puppy Bowl, before the Super Bowl. She was fascinated.

Write a paragraph about something special your dog did and draw a picture that illustrates it. If you don't have a dog, have fun writing a creative paragraph about a smart dog who does clever things. Enjoy yourself. Writing is great fun.
