John Wayne: Hero to All American Airedale Terriers

"There've been a lot of stories about how I got to be called Duke. One was that I played the part of a duke in a school play, which I never did. Sometimes, they even said I was descended from royalty! It was all a lot of rubbish. Hell, the truth is that I was named after a dog!" 

 Yes, fans of Airedales, it's true. John Wayne’s nickname, ‘The Duke’, was the name of his childhood Airedale Terrier, who accompanied him everywhere he went. The ADT was called "Big Duke" and John Wayne was called "Little Duke".
