Duke snuggling with Ethan

Here's Duke snuggling with Ethan watching Saturday morning cartoons.

He's not quite one year old yet. This picture was taken the first week of January 2005.


This is my favorite picture in the world!!

It shows you how much Duke loves Ethan!! 

He is the sweetest dog!!

Hi Fredericka,

Hard to believe he is 3 1/2 years old already!  But yet, it seems we've always had him.  My husband and I don't remember how it was before Duke.  We just can't imaging life without him.  He is a gentle soul. The kids adore him.  When Duke was a puppy, our daughter wanted Duke to sleep with her all the time.  Now, she complains she has no room in the bed.  Ha! ha!  But yet, she won't kick him out of bed...she just snuggles with him.  And he let's her, even when it's warm!! When we go for a walk with Duke, people in the neighborhood are so amazed that he so well behaved and so gentle.   It is amazing when you think about it.

Duke is about 6 to 7 month old


Duke March 2005

Here is Duke (1 year & 2 months), ready to go out for a walk.  But since it was so cold out, we decided to put my husband's fleece shirt on him.  He's quite the fashion god!! 

Here is Duke graduating from level one training.  He is basically the only one sitting still!  Boy, did he ever love playing with the other dogs at break time!!  He was 10 month old in this picture.  Look how handsome he is!!!


Here is Duke in the back yard at almost 4 months old.  As you can tell, the kids decided to dress him up. 

He wasn't crazy about it, but he just let them do it with no complaints.


Duke Christmas card 2004

Here he is with Santa!!

Remember he's not one year old yet!   

Duke's first Christmas (2004)

What a good boy he is!!  Never went near the tree!

 But when we handed him his present to open.

Well, lets just say, he didn't waste anytime!!


Duke was 6 months old and he was meeting Hewie, a black lab for the first time. 

Hewie was a burst of energy constantly tugging at Dukes ears! 

 Hewie was almost 5 month old and way smaller that Duke. 

 But Duke was so gentle with him. He kept trying to clean Hewie's ears. What a good boy!


Duke at the end of May 2004, 5 months old

Yawning 7 to 8 weeks old



Duke when we just got him home in March 2004 (around 7 to 8 weeks old and he weighed 30 lbs!)

Look how cute he was!!  But of course he still is. 

There is one of him yawning that is cute and another one where he is trying to bark!  Too cute!
