Happy 1st Birthday Duke….Celebrate National Love Your Pet Day….

Do you have a favorite book with a dog as one of the minor characters? In my current manuscript, the heroine has a delightful bouncing Chiweenie named Duke….

 

I know, I know….for those of you who’ve met me, or follow my Facebook page or Twitter page…you know my choice of a “dog persona” isn’t very original…because….I have a Chiweenie named Duke…

 

This little guy has been adorable since the day we got him.

Our grandson is babysitting Duke.

 

 

Duke had been raised with children and other dogs and loved people from day one.

Because we have a pool in our backyard, we thought it best to teach Duke to swim….he loves the water….

Mischief is his middle name…

Adored at the Rehab Center…by everyone except…

Duke loves to entertain the residents at the Rehab Center

The babies in our family LOVE Duke…and he loves them!!

Duke is especially fond of trying new cuisine…a restaurant in St. Helens, Oregon offers a special “Doggie Spaghetti and Meatballs” during the summertime…
