PET LOVERS UNDERSTAND






    Charlie
      1997-2006










          At 9 1/2 years old, Charlie could barely walk, so today he was given peace and put out of pain.
            Charlie came into our lives through the humane society. When he was about three months old, his owners moved and left him behind. After a couple days a kind neighbor called the humane society and they picked him up. He had just been placed in his cage in the adoption center, when I walked by. They hadn't even gotten his sign up yet! I had always wanted a Rot with a tail, and there he was. I preferred female dogs, but couldn't resist him! He's been with us ever since.
              Two funny stories.
              1. When he was less than a year old, we were rolling coins and he "stole" a roll of pennies. While I was trying to get it out of his mouth, he swallowed the whole roll! We induced vomiting....a plastic grocery bag came up, but no pennies! Tried again, no results. The next day the pennies finally came up! We would call him "the goat" because he would eat all kinds of stuff.
                • He had his own cat. We simply named the stray cat that he allowed to share his food-"Charlie's Cat". He'd even clean her! I attempted to photograph it and ended up with a picture right before contact and it looks like he was sticking his tongue out at her! (I'll dig out that pic another time). He's tried to make friends with our current cats, but they aren't interested!

                Well Charlie, hope there's a cat who loves dogs in heaven and say "hey" to my parents. You'll be missed......love you, kisses!

                (Charlie was previously in this blog).
