This is my daughter's bloodhound, Duke, patiently keeping watch for her to come home from work. Both Duke and my daughter recently moved back home (thanks to an unscrupulous landlord who rented a condo to her when he was just weeks from a foreclosure judgement). I missed my daughter very much while she was on her own so I'm happy to have her back at least for awhile. Surprising enough, I am very happy to have Duke back too! There are cat people and dog people and I have to admit I had always considered myself a cat person. This is the dog that changed all that! Isn't he gorgeous?!
