I know Duke & Duchess are not Elkies, but an Elkie was my first childhood dog. His name was King. He was so sweet. He followed me everywhere and we did everything together. We were inseparable. I actually saw my first Elkie at a dog park a while ago. I haven't seen one since I had King believe it or not. It just made me think of him. After all these years, I still miss him. He made me love, respect, admire and appreciate all dogs.
