Duke is the Hill Pet of the Week. He is a nine-month-old black Labrador retriever with a lot of energy. Here’s his bio shared by his owner, Ryan Gearhart:
Duke is an avid Nationals fan. He is still confident that they will make the playoffs this season. He loves going on long walks through the beautiful Capitol Hill neighborhood and Yards Park. Duke loves to go shopping for fresh farmers market veggies every Saturday at Eastern Market. he is always down to meet new friends (both animal and human) and enjoys running, playing tug-o-war and wrestling with his buddies. This guy loves to show off his webbed feet and swimming skills whenever he has the opportunity.
He dislikes it when mommy and daddy are trying to rest. Duke will have none of this! He will make his discontent known with pleasant (not annoying) barking and by dropping toys in our laps. We’re not sure why, but bales of hay scare the heck out of him.
