meet the Duke…

The Duke

Duke is my nephew and one of my very best friends.  I have the good fortune to spend a week or so with him almost every summer.

He’s three years old, and I think he looks like a tiny black sheep…


Duke and I are relaxing at my sister’s house this week, where Duke spends his time “hunting” chipmunks in Jenny’s glorious gardens.

(Jenny’s gardens are beyond-belief-beautiful, but that’s no surprise – she works hard at everything she does and the results are always stunning, from her children to her dog, to her house, to her gardens!  I wish I had half her work ethic!)

Duke looking judicial

Duke often looks serious, but is, in fact, a bundle of fun and I think he’s smarter than I am…

Until next time – Enjoy every simple moment!

      • I just recently got myself a Cock-a-poo puppy!~ Love her to pieces….she’s 6 months old & all black also, but she doesn’t have the adorable curl to her as Duke has. He is beautiful!
