For some reason a sire line based on Duke, one of the breed’s foundation dogs seems to have vanished. He remains an important part of our pedigrees but only in degree of relationship. Had we been thinking in those terms 30 years ago, we could have prevented it. As the only male going back to Leonard Seppala’s Scottty, we can only regret.
I was looking for information on Duke a number of years ago and coming up dry. Then Pam Thomas pointed me to an article in the SHCA newsletter Spring of 82 or 83. There it was, his history and a picture. I reprint here for educational purposes with all credit to the SHCA.
