Duncan, whelped December 6, 2000, was an unexpected surprise. When we had gone to a kennel to choose a Silken, we originally wanted just a bitch, but Duncan was just irresistible and would follow us around and just had the brightest little expression. We gave in and took him as well as Josi.
A week later, my back went out and I was bedridden for a while. Duncan would sleep with me all day and was a great comfort - and he was only 3 1/2 months old at the time! We love his sweet, charming personality and he has grown into a fine dog as an adult.
At the first Rarities shows we attended (2002) Duncan won a 3-point major, and at the Rarities shows in August of 2003, Duncan picked up 3 more majors and finished his Rarities championship.
