Now, a memorial for the dog is growing.
Flowers, notes and dog toys are laid out in the grass at the park, and sticks are carefully placed to spell out “Duke.” A painting placed at the memorial reads, “Of all the sights I love in this world, near the top of the list is this one: Dogs without leashes.”
