Tuesday 15th November 2011 – and Duke

Well today is the last time I can do a profile of Duke with him still here. I do hope he’ll write to me. He’s the character of the pack. He’s a gentle mischievous dog that is always the


ringleader, but in a nice way. He leads Alan astray and Alan is happy to follow. They can still be found together almost all the time and will miss each other dreadfully. I’ll have to tell you how Duke is doing when Alan moves out. He has been the biggest wimp for both his microchipping and his injections yesterday. He had an especially long cuddle after his injection and seemed to be happy with the outcome. He’s been the favourite with a number of our visitors and to be fair we all have a soft spot for him. Good luck little fellow and I hope we meet again soon.

The vet said yesterday that the puppies might be quiet after their injections. I can only think she was thinking of somebody else’s puppies! They were running around like mad things late into the night, but then did sleep quite well. They seem more tired this morning. I’ve been asked to go and sort through my cupboard of cast off leads, harnesses, bowls and toys to see what I can find for Aristotle. On the one paw I suppose I’m glad he isn’t getting lots of new things, but on the other paw it seems a bit much when I don’t really want him to stay. Oh he’s cute, but that’s part of the problem. I don’t want a cute puppy to replace me. I’ve heard it all from my Mistress, “No one will replace you, Alfie.” “you’re special, Alfie” “I love you, Alfie”. Words are easy. I see the way she looks at him and the way he looks at her. The next thing you know he’ll be sleeping on her bed as well. Although to be fair, peeing on it the other day won’t make that happen any time soon!

My maternal human grandparents are arriving today so hopefully they will spoil me and make me feel special.

  1. Duke looks like a real miniature Entlebucher in that photo and less like a little puppy 🙂 I wish him good luck in his new home and hope he stays in touch with the rest of the pack!
