Today is Duke's first birthday! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yell.gif

Here he is as a little dude with his friend, Cassie.

And here's a picture of him jumping to get the toy from Daddy:

We took this last weekend, it was such a nice day outside:

And here he is, at the end of the day, all tuckered out:


The past year has had many trial and tribulations....potty training nightmares, ER Vet trips, many destroyed items. Heck, for the first 3 months, I was on constant alert and didn't get to sit down for more than 2 minutes because of chasing Duke around. But we knew that a beagle pup would be a challenge as a young pup (we may have underestimated how much of a challenge Duke would be, LOL). But we knew the rewards would far outweigh the challenges. Fact is, we get our dogs as lifetime family members and if the first few years takes work, that's fine because we know the next 15 (God willing) will be so rewarding.

We love our little Dukie-Doo. He has brought life and youth into our household and even into our 2 old babies. His personality it so fun and life is a playground for him. We've seen big changes in him in the past few months and we see him really settling down and becoming the companion we knew he would be. Oh, he still has quite a bit of the pup in him and there will always be that mischievous streak in him and that's ok, because that is part of what makes up his wonderful personality and we love every bit of it.

Happy barkday to my sweet little boy, Duke! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yes.gif
