Tucker may have started life as a free puppy but make no mistake – he is priceless. In 2006, Gretchen needed a way to keep her boys busy while attending a horse show in Kentucky. A puppy giveaway did the trick, and Tucker’s name was derived from “Kentucky’ while driving home to Missouri. Life is sweet with two pug sisters at home, but Tucker enjoys putting in a full day at the office. In fact, he gets upset if Gretchen heads to Werremeyer (or anywhere, for that matter) without him. Don’t be surprised if Tucker greets you at the door and sits in on a meeting or two, offering calming comfort and strong presence. He’s our silent partner and our solid rock.
