Tucky the Boulder Hound

This boulder moonlights as Tucky, a friendly-looking pooch. Flanked by pebble kittens, Tucky is sometimes dressed in seasonable attire, such as a Santa hat at Christmas or an Uncle Sam hat for Independence Day. Nothing can replace the love and affection of a real furry friend, but at least Tucky's human companions don't have to follow it around with a plastic baggy.
