Tucker is the quintessential Annapolitan. He frequents Spa creek where will retrieve for hours if permitted. More often than not, he can be found at the office where he greets everyone with a wagging tail and smile. If Tucker could talk he would most definitely tell you “if you want a true friend, get a dog or better yet a Lab.”
