  1. What ever you do Tucker – dont turn round! We think we bassets should get the grasp of Turckerese quite quickly – it is very similar to our own basset language. Apart from the Tucker/Dennis bit of course!

  2. hahha Tucker I thinks your language is the best.. I specially agree with the “no stealing”… what else does it mean for us furry babies huh?! 😉


  3. I don’t want to alarm you Tucker, but if your Mama & Dada have any poison baits, guns, chainsaws or flamethrowers in the cupboard now would be a good time to get them….


  4. Tucker:

    Your English isn’t so good is it? Or did you change those words around yourself?! Do you think I should try that?

    My favorite word in the English language happens to be “kittykat”. That means there is a kittykat prowling around somewhere near.
