Hello Duke, What a pleasure to meet you! No doubt you are where you belong; your family loves you so much and vice versa I'm sure. I am so glad your folks had the patience, love, and determination to give you a chance to be a loving companion. I am so sorry you were mistreated as a puppy but now you know the love and calm of your family. I hope all of you have many good years with each other. Congrats on being DOTD!
