cuddles! Treats! Sleeping with his humans, walks. Oh, and did I mention cuddles? Car rides.His kitten, Tiny. The neighborhood kids who give him treats when they see him. Raw meaty bones.
Skateboards and roller blades. The scarey lady in unit 1. Being swatted on the nose by the cats. Being put in his crate when the family goes out. When his mom grabs him by the face and kisses him on the lips: Embarassing!
Cheeko, Coconuts, Stuffed animals, tennis balls, squeaky toys (now that he's not afraid of them anymore!), basted raw hide bones, weird stuffed fuzzy worm.
Stolen cat food. Anything the humans are eating. Performatrin Lamb and Rice for large breeds. Raw meaty bones. Puppy pasta (spaghetti with some kibble mixed in)
Anywhere, anytime, with anyone. Playing in the water with his brother Cheeko.
Sleeping is Dukes best trick. Hogging the bed is the next best. Then there's; Sit, down, touch, paw, catching food that is tossed to him.
My daughter knew the family that originally had Duke. He didn't get outside much, so he had a lot of accidents in the house. The family decided they didn't want him anymore, so my daughter started bugging me about letting him come to live with us. I was reluctant to take on a dog (Mom...I PROMISE I'll take care of him! Yeah, right!). The first time I met Duke, he was nervous, and crawling with fleas. He had no fur from his ribcage back, and so many fleas you could see them walking all over him. I put some advantage on Duke, and sent him back to the other family for a couple days to let the fleas die off. Then, I agreed to let Duke come for a sleep over to see how he got along with the other animals.
He wiggled and cuddled and licked his way in to our hearts....fast. His one day sleepover turned into a weekend, then a week, and here we are more than a year later, and he never did go back to the original family.
That family has NO idea what a wonderful dog they just let walk away from them. We run in to them every now and again, and they can't get over what a gorgeous dog Duke has become.
THOUGHTS FROM THE UNDERDOG
Spirit in the sky, who watches over all animals: It is my prayer and my request that you grant greater understanding, and acceptance to humans; those who love us, and those who hate us.
That they will know how loyal we are, how brave we are, and how loving we are. Help them to accept us as a breed in whole, and not let the few tragedies shine brighter than the many great traits that we have.
And those who would kill me, let them know, I forgive them, even though I dont understand their hatred. And those who would beat me, let them know I still love them, even though it is not the honorable way.
Thank you for all the strong traits that you have given to me, and my breed. Help those to know that I stand for courage, strength, loyalty, and bravery. And as my master already knows, let those who would come against my family know that I would surely die defending them.
And just one last thing that I would ask: Let my master know, that if you should call me away, that I will wait patiently at those pearly gates until the one who chose me, comes home.
