Dutchess has fit into our home so well that it’s like she’s been here a long time! At first she wasn’t too keen on being hugged but will now come over and lay her head on you to let you know she wants a hug!

She plays well with our Chihuahua and a Shih Tzu mix. Taco the Chihuahua seems to feel she’s the same size as Duchess. Dutchess and Taco frequently play tug-of-war. She and shitzu Jingle are less fond of each other but do have fun running up and down the hill in the back yard, chasing squirrels and barking at birds.

Dutchess loves her toys. She can often be found carrying a squeaky toy in her mouth and squeezing it as she “kicks” a ball in front of her. She hates the Roomba and takes refuge in her bed!

Our two daughters 18 and 14 adore Dutchess and lavish attention upon her. My husband Chris has taken her to obedience training and she passed flying colors. In addition to obeying most of the time she can give paw, sit and stay. Since I’m home every day we have gotten to be pretty good pals as well. If I go to another part of the house it’s not long until she is looking for me.

She loves riding in the car and collecting puppy treats at the Dairy Queen, Starbucks and Chick-fil-A. We are very happy she is a part of our family
