In Loving Memory of


Blackcoral Duke of Riptide

August 2nd 1999- August 6th 2007

So sadly missed by Tom, Nancy Giusti, Miss Breeze and Romeo

Duke, taken on Mt Shasta a month before he crossed the bridge.

That junction in the road where we had to say good-bye to Duke came last night. He was a working mountain dog that loved having a job to do, from Captain of the Riptide to herding sheep, picking up the mail from Fred the mailman, pulling a cart, the list is endless. He took us on an amazing 8 year journey and left us with good memories and lifetime friends that we made along the way. The Tom and Duke team has earned their last title.

Light a candle for Duke and all the other Berners taken too young and too quick by Histiocytosis.
