Pet-Peeves: Loud noises, Ruby trying to steal my stuff, Rosie yelling at me, the sight of guns even toy ones.. my family thinks I must have been shot at before. Sorry, I don't like cats.. AT ALL! I hope that doesn't stop anyone from being my pup pal though!

Arrival Story: Adopt 08: He wandered into our yard on July 19, 2005 and he's never left. We searched for his owner, but no one knew who he belonged to. We suspect he was a drop off. Kinda happy we never found his owner because he was obviously badly abused. We are so happy he picked us because we have fallen head over heels in love with him! He was a mess when he came. Very dirty and full of fleas. He cleans up nicely though! :) He's so handsome! Duke is a success story. We are so happy to have him join our family. He was very shy and scared when we found him in our yard. He kept running away from us. Until we put some food out for him and then I guess he figured "Ok, these are good people". He has become a very much loved and wanted addition to our family. He has come a long way from that scared and confused dog that came into our lives. He never knew what love or play was. I don't think he ever had a treat in his life. He didn't know what to do with them. He used to be terrified of cars, but now.. you can't go anywhere without him! BOL!!!!!!
Bio: Duke is an interesting guy. He's shy and quiet and doesn't make a fuss about anything really... except walks or if another male dog tries to mount him.. LOOK OUT! He loves his family very much, but he does get annoyed with Maggie if she licks his face too long. He is a darling and we can't imagine not having him. He has brought so much joy to our family. You never really know how he'll be from one day to the next... one day he'll be super hyper and high energy, but the next day he acts like he has one foot in the grave. He's had a hard life before us so we cut him some slack and let him do things his way.
I have been tagged by the love of my life, Copper Beaglesworth! It sounds like fun so I'm off to tag. Below are the rules of the game:
(Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names.
