Bucky in Agility

Dogs on Thursday is doing a special about agility this week. Here is Bucky in Pugtacular 1998, jumping over the last bar to win Best Time in agility. He used to clear our king size bed (with frame and box springs) in a single leap from the hard wood floor. Looking at his little stuck face from last week, you'd never think he was this agile. We've been lugging him up and down the stairs for the last three years, which helped stabilize his neck and back problems. No doubt it's adding to his longevity.
Bucky's left eye seems to be quite cloudy, especially at night. It doesn't seem to impact his vision. Mom gets around with one good eye, puggy can too.

Good for Bucky. It's good to show that size doesn't matter. All dogs can work at something no matter how big or how small. It's hard to watch them get old too soon. Give him a hug from us.

Love the picture of Bucky in his glory days. All dogs should be so lucky to grow old in such a loving family.

We have to be careful with Thor, too, but we can't carry a 250 pound dog anywhere! Bucky is a lucky boy to have such a wonderful home.
