    I know little about Duke, other than what Road Warrior and venue owner told me, also what's already written on the dog, for example it was stated in PBN or SDJ (maybe both) that Duke scratched game on his courtesy which is nonsense, it said two game dogs would have died if Scarecrow Knls hadn't stepped in to pick up, well that's not what Road Warrior and venue owner said.. Both gave Duke credit for being a devastating head dog, and that was clear when I fixed Bash up later, so no question Duke a talented little dog with a load of mouth, problem was he met Bash!

    Most people don't know.. Bash was a legend in the north, his mother (Gunning's Dutchess) defeated Scotsman's Tania in 23 mins, and his Sire (Tosh) was dead game 1xL, Bash was a brutal opponent for any dog, I heard of him stopping 50lb prospects long before his career got started.. Road Warrior always gave Duke respect, but said the dog would have got killed if they never stepped in to pick up.. So how do we remember Duke and Bash? That's easy! A Scotsman groupie wrote the history\m/"duke failed to scratch, very game stafford though he gave his all but just wasn't enough for bash" and what about CH Bash? "just a game plug!" Seems true history depends on which hater writes it :-B

    "Scarecrow's Duke"

    "Duke" was a KC Reg Staff of "Rapparee" breeding who was very highly regarded in sporting circle's with a reputation for giving a torrid time to some well-bred Pitbull's,not to mention leaving their owner's somewhat red-faced!The first was a game-tested Gino X Reid dog that had seen quite enough of Duke by the 42 minute mark.Next was a Bronson/Nelis dog with a reputation,who saw Duke as a warm-up to "Bigger & Better things" but half an hour in Duke's company was enough warming-up for this one!Duke was then matched against the very game,and future Champion "Scotsman's Bash",after a hard,evenly contested 1hr 30mins,it was becoming apparent that one of these game animals would have to take his death before a winner was found so Duke was picked-up by his owner,conceding the match but showing his desire to continue by giving a hard courtesy scratch. Duke was'nt bred very much for various reasons but apparently 2 or 3 of his son's are a chip of the old block causing the odd nightmare among the Pitbull's!.Duke was over 15 year's old before he passed away.
