February 28th will be Duke’s 3rd birthday and more than a year and a half since he joined our family. He’s a total mush, and likes sitting on laps better than anything we fix up for a doggy bed. Our adoption counselor said he was a high energy dog, and he’s been on 15 mile hikes with us with energy to spare. His sweet disposition and handsome stripey coat impress everyone he meets. His one complaint about his new home is probably the weather; a Georgia boy, he won’t consider venturing out into the snow without layers on. Here he is in his latest sweater, an underlayer for his usual snow coat. Although he doesn’t look thrilled with it, he got brave enough to burrow through the deep snow and stayed warm during our walks on all but the coldest days while wearing it.
