Duke was once a Basset Hound puppy. He and his brothers were once little and didn't weight many tonnes. It's hard to believe, I know. This very video just below could very well have been Duke and his brothers Titan, Earl, Prince, Baron and his late German brother, Albert before he withered away.
The Basset Hound is an amazing dog that would have no trouble in finding that small bit of cheese you dropped by the fridge when having a midnight snack. Their short legs mean their noses are close to the ground and can sniff out anything. They would make better police dogs than most, if they could be bothered. However, they prefer to relax, frolic in the grass, eat Country Dog - Premium Nibbles and annoy children on skateboards.

In Maputo I am known for my love of tinned tuna.
