    DefaultDuke's Fountain of Youth

    When we go to the dog park Duke behaves like you would expect from an 8 1/2 year old Lab. He noodles around, sniffs, marks, and occasionally runs aimlessly in circles.
    But when he sees me pull out his orange training bumper from my back pocket he drops at least 7 of those years on the ground and starts behaving like a young puppy, jumping up and down, spinning in circles, and ears so perked they look like sails. I can almost hear him screaming Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy Throw it, throw it, Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy.
    When his time comes to cross the bridge I can guarantee he will have that bumper with him.

    That made me really happy and really sad at the same time.

    My brother's lab Hunter was the same way about his orange bumper. When he passed away a couple of years ago at 13 he was indeed buried with one of his favorite orange bumpers. Java has his other favorite bumper.

    I laughed and cried at the same time. How perfectly you know Duke. You are both fortunate to have each other.
