All of our 4-legged children at Tucker's Station are adopted - that makes it hard to know exactly when everyone's birthday really is. To simplify things all the "kids" share the same birth date - Labor Day.

This year the canine kids opted for a traditional hamburger cookout birthday party complete with a dog friendly birthday cake. We learned to keep the party simple after the year the puppies ate the party hats.

We - Barbara and Wayne - currently share our home at Tucker's Station with 13 dogs and 4 cats all of which were sadly abandoned on Bull Run Road.

We're often asked if the humans, felines and canines ever have problems. Like all families we have our problems but we remind the kids frequently that "we are a multi-species family and we all have to get along". -Barbara Armitage
