Parting Shot

Photograph Masa Hensley

The Duke — Karen Johnwick’s 7-year-old Great Dane — turns inquisitive blue eyes to Catfish Alley photographer Masa Hensley. Rescued by Johnwick from an animal shelter in Jackson five years ago, Duke has turned out to be the “perfect pet,” a laid-back companion for Karen and family. Perhaps mindful of his own past and current good fortune, Duke is tolerant of other critters and curious humans. He’s also a loyal buddy to Marma, the Johnwicks’ other Great Dane. Good dog.
