January 2015: This is a couple days after I adopted him in the car. We were on our way home from his first vet visit. When we were done at the vet, I took him to the grass and tried to get him to go to the bathroom, but he would not go. About five minutes into the drive home, Duke pooped on the rug that I put in the seat for him to lay on. That is the exact reason that I put the rug in the seat, just in case he made a mess or something. It was disgusting.

February 2015: This is Duke playing in my backyard, in the snow.
March 2015: This is Duke and I at the park. I started taking him to the dog park when he was about five months old. You can start to see his growth, he doesn't look so much like a puppy anymore, but more like an adult dog.

October 2015: This is another picture of Duke and I at the dog park. He was 1 years old.
