Campsite Encounter: Duke and Truman
Names: Truman and Duke
Breeds: Duke’s a black German shepherd, Truman’s a Rottweiler mix
Ages: Duke is going on 9, Truman’s 3
Encountered: At the Dunes’ Edge Campground in Provincetown, Mass.
Backstory: A woman named Eileen from Tennessee pulled into the campsite adjoining mine in a cute little Coach House motorhome — just like the one I’ve been coveting. I stepped out of my tent, put my RVNV aside and went over to meet the two dogs traveling with her. Truman’s a bundle of energy, Duke (named after the school that Eileen attended) a bit more mature. Both were as friendly as they can be. Eileen was, too, offering me some of the chocolate tart she picked up at a bakery down the road. She bought the motorhome and started traveling after the death of her husband. She was gradually making her way back home to Seiverville, Tenn., after a trip to Canada and other points.
