This amazing boy came into our lives when he was 10 months old. He was such an amazing companion who never left my side from that first day. He loved an adventure, car rides, traveling in the motor home and the boat…but most of all he loved to swim and kayak. Duke was as many would say human like, so intelligent and understood every word. This wonderful dog truly touched everyone he met and for us we will never forget your spirt, kindness, bravery and love. We were blessed to have you teach us for almost twelve years, you taught us well my friend lessons we will always remember. We miss you so much, we love you, we miss you, and trying so hard to be as brave as you were. Our friend Marilyn Vitkevich-Wilke made the donation in honour of Duke, we thank you so much for this tribute.

A donation was made in Duke's memory and the memorial was created on April 29, 2019.
