Duke came to Margi and I at 6 years old. From the moment he came into our home he belonged. We are thankful for his previous family’s generosity in letting us become his new family. Duke hiked in the hills around Helena with Margi every day of his life with us. Over the course of the next 6 years he has been on every trail in the south hills except for about 1.5 miles of the ridge trail. In addition Duke has been in the Little Belts, Big Belts, and on the Continental Divide trail. He was even in the Porquipine Mountains in the UP a month before congestive heart failure caught up with him. The great thing about our Duke though is that however much he loved going for a hike he just loved being with us more. He was happy just being at home chasing butterflies or shadows of birds as the flew overhead. Duke you are missed!!!!
