One of my other avocations is taking time out with my young German Shepherd. At the time of this picture below, he was only four months old.
He was purchased to appease a partner who was craving a pet but when the relationship ended a few weeks later, I was left with this bundle of joy.
His name is Duke and has featured in many photographs of late and will no doubt make regular appearances over the coming years.
His temperament is fantastic – so laid back and generally calm. He is incredibly obedient for one so young, staying, fetching, sitting and lying down on command.
The image above was taken at Eglinton Park, Kilwinning just before both his ears remained upright.
