Favorite Walk:

Arrival Story:
One night, after a rain, my son heard the dogs barking and went to check outside to see what they were backing about. He found this little fella squalling. Of course, there was no saying no to that adorable face. Our vet told us we must have a neon sign announcing that we take strays--actually we live on a graveled road, next to a stretch of road that is almost a mile without houses. Donald named him Luke Duke (after the Dukes series) and I added the Mr and Bush (Duke Bush is the dog who tries to sell the secret to Bush's chili).

Luke is definitely a Black Lab mix. We are not sure just what the mix is, but it gives him an unique face. He is due for his rabies vac/checkup now and we will see what his weight is. He is the largest dog at our home but is the youngest. He is so full of energy. Our vet told us that he would only get to be 30 to 35 pounds full grown (I was going to see about a new home if he was going to be huge). Yes, he missed that one by a bit. He is over 50 pounds. UPDATE 7/19/12 Yes Luke continued to grow to over 100 lbs. A Big Baby who was a joker always. Yesterday we said goodbye to our Lukey Duke. I am going to miss you Big Boy. You will always be in our hearts.

Forums Motto:
Luke - Let's go for a ride in the truck!

Happy Birthday to me

Mom has not been able to bring herself to write for me or about me since my leaving for the bridge. She is still sad but she wanted me to thank everyone for remembering my birthday yesterday.

It was spent with the wonderful angel furs. We had lots of fun. There was Pumpkin chucking (now that was Cool); a new fur-iend showed me where the milk fountain was (yummy) and being with my family angels has been exciting.

I want to say thank you to Callie Rose & The B&G Club, Crystal and Cammy for the Fabuloso Birthday cards. I loved the wishes from the beautiful ladies. ;)

Thank you for the Birthday gifts:
George, Merry, families and The Dog house;
Angel Rebby;
The family of Otto, Angel Sophie, Sagwa, Daisy, and Skylar;
My Buddy Rosco P Coltrane;
Angel Zeusie;
Tinkerbelle and Angel Natasha;
Angel Brewster - he helped me chuck my pumpkin with the cannon;
Abbie, Charlie, Teddy, Maggie, Sam, Max, and more.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I love you each one and please know how much your kindness has meant to me and my family.

Love & Licks,

**I have as yet to write my goodbye to Luke and I am still not ready. I long to feel his kiss on my chin/neck. I miss petting him and feeling him lean against me. It is still unreal.
Thank you for being so kind in thinking of Lukey Duke on his Special Day.


I am turning 5 tomorrow!!

I will be celebrating my 5th birthday tomorrow. While Slippers was born on Mom and Dad's anniversary; Mom chose the 15th for me, that is her parents' anniversary (their 51st tomorrow). The date was based on how old the vet said I was when I came to their house.

I was a wee pup then, about 6 weeks. I have grown a bit and I still manage to get into trouble. In fact Mom has volunteered to give me a birthday spanking, she says I really deserve one. I am a little embarrassed (just a little) but I was goofing off and would not move when Mom needed me too, and I cause her to smash her little finger on her left hand with a sheet of plywood yesterday. It is swollen today, numb and the end joint is purple. She was trying to keep the board from hitting me, when I would not move, and that was how she smashed her finger. But it caught me and she was so worried; but I was just fine. Went running around like nothing.

Guess what, even though I may have been a naughty boy yesterday, Mom still picked me up my FAVORITE treat for tomorrow--HOT DOGS!! YES!! I love them. You know all I have to do is smile at her, kiss her and she forgives all. ;)

I cannot wait to see what else Mom and Donald have planned for me. I heard Donald talking about watching fireworks tomorrow evening at a local festival, I know they are for me, now to get him to take me too. Maybe I can sneak in the car.... I wonder.



October's Party

October's Party
By: George Cooper

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."
