Hi, my name is hannah logan. my dogs name is Duke. He is a nine month old Australian Sheppard mix. We have been having quite a it of trouble with him between his seperation anxiety, and him not wanting to get into the car. He is a 40lb dog so he is not exactly light, and to make it worse when i try to pick him up he plays the "i'm dead weight, try to pick me up now" game. He is a great dog other than those two little issues though. plus, we are a military family so hes great at keeping me company when my husband is away.
