This adorable little puppy came into our lives. Though we had researched and decided on the beagle breed, we weren't expecting to get one this day. But we did, we traveled an hour out of town on a weeknight just to look ha ha. He was the perfect traveler the whole trip home and that night when he fell asleep in between us in bed, we just knew we had chosen the perfectly behaved puppy!
Boy did he have a surprise in store for us! LOL The real Duke showed up the next day and life has been full of fun ever since. There were times we never thought we'd be able to train him and times we were laughing so hard at his antics that we didn't care. He always made us smile and we knew he was worth the effort.
A year later, we're amazed at what a good boy he has turned into. There are still some hints of the puppy left and we love that! I also love to see all the changes in his coloring and size.
Happy one year Adoption Day, Duke! I cannot imagine life without his sweet little face.
