This is my best friend Duke…or Sir Duke if you aren’t into the whole brevity thing. In this photo, Duke is partying it up at our annual holiday get-together yesterday. Not many people (let alone dogs) can pull off a bow tie, but Duke pulls it off and then some. He has probably started a trend. Aunt Kathie gave it to him, and he loves it so much, he’s still wearing it. Today, he’s been staring at the front door, just so that he can show off his bow tie to the UPS guy or the mailman. Duke likes to party (sometimes), but around his peeps, he’s an animal.
