Thanks, everyone! @ellie67 - she is named after my great grandfather, who I knew very well. He came over on a boat from Germany when he was 8 so everyone called him Dutch. He had the face of a bulldog, so hence, Duchess.
Perfect name! She is beautiful! I'm sorry I can't add anything about putting a bully to bed. Mabel sleeps most of the day--and night!
