The Tucker Files: Beach Day

We had an unusually warm day the other day, and I had just bought Tucker a Chuckit Amphibious Bumper, so we decided to take him down to Lake Erie to try it out.  It was a beautiful day, and when we arrived, there were at least a hundred seagulls on the beach.  I tried to capture a video of Tucker chasing them, but he wouldn’t give them the time of day.

Here are some great pictures I captured with my ipad.


A great accidental shot…


“Just a shot”


Sheer bliss!!  I like to call this “Best.   Day.   Ever!!!”


Then we got ice cream…and Tucker helped eat it.  He had a marrow bone from the local butcher in the garage after the ride home to dry off.   All in all, it was a great day!

Golden Video of the Week – The Art of Fetch

Who wouldn’t love to watch 2 golden retrievers playing fetch on a sunny afternoon with a Chuckit launcher.  This video was found on Vimeo and is by Michael M.

Product “Win”

I have a “Product Fail” category, so introducing my “Product Win” category.  I used a previous brand, but this one takes the cake.  It is the Chuckit Max Glow ball.

After holding the ball up to a pot light for about a minute, it glowed for at least half an hour.  We like to take Tucker for walks late at night sometimes, because of my shiftwork and all, and the fact that the local schoolyard is empty.  We have lost several balls etc because we can’t find them if he gets distracted. (“Squirrel!!”)   He had a good run tonight with his new Chuckit.  It was beautiful to see him running back to us with that big green glowing ball in his mouth.  You can also stuff the ball with treats. or hear a whistling sound when you throw it.  There is a handle you can also buy, which prevents you from bending over, getting slobber on your hands, and helps you throw the ball up to 3x further.  A must have for any golden retriever owner!!!!

Chuckit is rated very high on Amazon as well as The Golden Retriever Forum.
