Duke is a Rough Collie or Lassie dog. We got him a few years ago to replace Buddie who had passed away. Duke is just a beautiful dog. Smart as a whip. Just recently I lost my dad and had to be away from home for about eight weeks. My Duke would go to the end of the lane every day and wait for me to come home. When I did finally come home I got a greeting from him in his own barking voice. Since then he won't leave my side. If I go up the stairs a hundred times he is right there. So loyal and loving. A true companion for life.
