I forget how little Duke used to be… He really has grown into a monster, size wise and he’s only 6 months old. He has the most amazing character and an amazing personality… um, doganality? I can’t begin to explain how special this dog is. He is so protective – no one can come come near me and he can sense if I feel uneasy – he instantly stands in front of me or next to me and nudges into my leg so that I know he is there. He is so loving with his cuddles and nuzzles, he’s caring – he gets genuinely concerned if I happen to cry and licks my face, and he brings so much joy to everyone.
He’s not so little anymore. I can’t just scoop him up into my arms or onto my lap anymore – he’s a brute now but he’s adorable. He has such funny expressions and his face has really filled out into a proper Bulldog now. If he’s not grinning (see this post for his grin) then he looks so upset with the world. I managed to capture his unimpressed expression.
He’s gone from this “unimpressed look”:
He’s gone from this:
|With my mom – or as she calls herself “Gran”|
|Sleep time with my mom’s Golden Retriever, Jadie. These 2 are best friends. So cute.|
Couldn’t you just gobble him up?
