MY MOVIE: Duke ~ A volunteer writes: Duke must have heard the song 'Lean On Me' and taken it to heart...because he just loves to lean on me! And the feeling is mutual! He's a total love-bug and wiggled and waggled and leaned-in the minute I started petting him. He's partial to chin-rubs, but back scratches and ear rubs make him very happy, too! He stood up a few times to give me hugs and kisses...the most adorable thing! On our walks, he'd look up at me with sweetest, gentlest face; when I smiled back, he'd stop and sit down with this eager expression, as if he knew he was just too stinking cute to resist (which he is!). I couldn't help but give him some more attention, along with treats. I'm not sure which he enjoyed more, but he was definitely in doggie bliss! Duke walked lovely on a leash and knows 'sit'. (He's really good at it, too!). I just can't enough of this big, sweet, beautiful boy and I'm sure you'll feel the same; so come and meet him today. He's waiting to find a fur-ever friend that he can always lean on!
