Tucker’s Seasonal Words of Wisdom

Read by Lillian Sutphin

Tucker here. I live on a farm in Idaho next to the Big Wood River, at the end of a road lined with aspen and cottonwood trees. My closest friends are other Berners (we Bernese Dogs call ourselves Berners): Inge, Milli, Paddy, and Muffin. We love to watch all the animals around the farm: cows and horses, deer and elk, ducks and geese, foxes and coyotes, raccoons and skunks. I love every season of the year, especially Spring when the snow melts, the days get warmer, baby animals arrive, and there are lots of new smells for my sniffer. (Dogs have excellent noses for smelling!) I would like to share with you some of the things I have learned. Hope you like my book and all the fun adventures that I have every day.

Read by Xavier Bishop

My name is Tucker and I’m a big Bernese Mountain Dog with big dreams. I live in Idaho on the family farm where I can wander around and watch everything. My owners, Ted and Lynn, introduced me to the game of golf, and oh boy do I like to watch that little white ball. In fact, if I can get good at this new game, I’ll be heading for the Canine Masters in no time. Maybe my various friends will join me there … we shall see.
