A Children’s Story:
Tucker, a German Shepherd mix, has a great home, up until he finds himself homeless. This is his journey from homeless to a business logo. This story is fiction based on truth.
“Tucker’s Story” by Bobbie Asad is sweet and heartbreaking – even more so because you know this is a scene that is played out countless times a year across the Country. Tucker was is a German Shepherd mixed breed dog, one who was loved and sheltered in a close family for 3 years. Unfortunately, that relationship came to an end and Tucker was left, alone, in a park.
How many time have I read a news article on line regarding abandoned pets? Too many, way too many. Tucker was lucky, he was found by a rescue – but other dogs and cats are not so lucky. This story ends well, with a smile and a tear in the eye, but it also teaches and relays a very important message. Written from Tucker’s viewpoint and aimed at children 7 and up, it’s a quick tale that will have a lasting impact.
We need to care for the responsibilities we accept, and if life prevents that from happening then please, for the love of everything, take them to a Rescue – don’t leave them alone and don’t take them to the pound.
This story deserves more than 5 stars and I would give them if I could.
