A puppy in Vancouver, Washington has gained millions of fans because of what's he's missing. His day at the beach has made him famous. Despite having only two legs, the boxer had a joyful run on the beach. Reggie Aqui has his story. "Can he get any cuter?" In the fall, when we first met Duncan, vets had recently presented Vancouver's Panda Paws Rescue with this choice: either euthanize him or amputate Duncan's deformed back legs that were dragging him down. "So we decided to give him a chance, and I think we made the right decision," says Amanda Geise, Duncan's owner. Five months later, the only thing flying by faster than Duncan's two legs, seems to be his YouTube views: more than 3-million since his owners posted this a week ago. "This video has gone crazy viral," says Geise. It's Duncan's first trip to the beach. "And he loved it. If," Geise says. "We wouldn't have carried him half the time he would have ran the whole time." On the day we first met him back in October, Duncan was just hours out of his double amputation surgery. Back then Amanda Geise, who runs Panda Paws Rescue and adopted Duncan for her own family, thought he would eventually use a doggie wheelchair. As you can see, Duncan ditched it. "Since the day he started to move and toddle around and started walking, he picked up his back end and carried it, so he doesn't know any different," Geise says. As healthy and happy as he looks, Duncan's owners know it might not always he that way. "Our family has prepared itself, we may not get an 8-year, 10-year life span with him," Geise says. "But every day we get with him is still a gift, so." So, Duncan's family sees his life like Duncan is probably living it...in the magical moment.
