My husband Rob and I needed to fill our lives once again with the joy that is a DOG. No other dog could replace our beloved Ringo. But our new Bernese Mountain Dog puppy Dude certainly gave us the distraction that we so desperately needed. Our first trip with Dude was to visit our friends Mauri and Mike, who live on the Ottawa River with their kids Maya and Connor and a gorgeous doberman named Eddie. Well, Eddie and the Dude hit it off that day, and worked on a project together. They dug a hole. The best hole ever.
