Sir Charlie Forever!

Written by his New Dad

Sir. Charlie nka Charlie has landed in Forever!

I felt very sorry for the poor, thirsty, bedraggled dog that had spent well over twelve hours in a crate (including one and a half hours on the ground after the plane landed – grrrrrr!) by the time he arrived.  It has been all uphill since! 

Charlie loves being silly…

…and he loves a little romp!

I sent his Foster Mom, Janet, two emails from Charlie later that night.  The next day, I brought him to my office and everyone fell in love with him.  He is a charmer of the first order!

Time to roll in the clover some more!

He loves going for walks and he loves going in the car.  I think the wide open spaces are a revelation to him!  On our first evening, when the sun was setting as we returned from our last walk, I sat in the rocking chair on the front porch and Charlie sat at the edge of the porch, ears pricked watching some cattle two fields away, as well as the birds and squirrels running around in the yard.  There was a line of mature wild turkeys walking along a hedgerow, and he followed them with his eyes, but didn't make a peep.  He never tested the leash and was tranquil and in some "zone".

What is that in there?...
…Ohhh!  Now I see!  Thanks for the lift, Dad!

Later, he found the plumped up blanket next to my bed and slept like a log from 9PM through 6AM.   Charlie is AWESOME!!!!

Charlie fka CP Sir. Charlie is Happy in Forever!

NOTE:  Robin Holland, a NY photographer/friend, took these wonderful photos of Charlie getting acquainted with his new life.
