Brothers and Books with a Purpose - Meet Max & Tucker at the Park!

Australian Shepherd brothers, Max & Tucker, heroes of Max & Tucker Adventures, help rescue animals in the woods of Northern Virginia.

It started with a simple trip to the woods, like most weekend mornings. It turned into a series of children’s books and affiliations with local non-profit organizations.

Max & Tucker, Australian Shepherd brothers, helped rescue, foster and find a forever-home for two little abandoned puppies and on another occasion helped rescue a stranded deer. Their stories are captured in the children's books Lily & Lucy: An Easter Story and Deer Oh Deer: A Max & Tucker Adventure. Proceeds are donated to the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation and Wildlife Rescue League respectively.

Max & Tucker are now registered therapy dogs who visit schools, libraries, assisted living facilities, day care facilities and more to share their adventures. They are regular visitors's at Brightcare Center, a community day program, and at a residential treatment program for youth in crisis. All visits are volunteer and all the petting is free.

Keep an eye out for Max & Tucker and their new adventures and remember, “Just Act. Imagine the story you will inspire.” and “Those we rescue, really rescue us."

Green Spring Gardens is a must-visit park, a year-round gold mine of information and inspiration for the home gardener. It's an outdoor classroom, a museum, and a national historic site.
The park has a wooded stream valley with ponds, a naturalistic native plant garden, more than 20 thematic demonstration gardens, a greenhouse, a plant shop, two gift shops, a historic house, and a horticultural reference library. The gardens and educational programs focus on practical landscaping techniques that are appropriate for the Washington metro area. There is a fee for the program. See for details.
