  • Duke's new bad-boy image

    Boo, the chocolate lab, has passed his bad-boy status along to Duke, the Corgi.

    For 11 years, Boo has held onto his reign of chief trouble maker but he has begun to mellow and Duke has made a run for the crown.

    Don’t get me wrong, Boo still has his moments. He continues to be wild when company is over. His endearing mischievous moments also are still going strong. Anyone who has a mischievous dog knows why we love these moments.
