Charlie Writes a Love Story

If you follow this blog, you know me. I’m Charlie and my favorite things are playing in the snow, chasing my friends, and my mom. But this is a love story so my mom is only the photographer. And the chauffeur to get to the trail. And the one typing this because dogs don’t have thumbs.

This is Meadow. 😍 She’s one of my favorite girlfriends. I know what you’re thinking. Don’t judge, it’s a dog thing and you wouldn’t understand.

Look at that smile!

Be honest, you’d chase her too.

Sometimes she lets me catch her.

We stop for some refreshing “snow cocktails.”

I think she likes me too. 😊

Snowy Hiking Trail

Some photos of one of our hikes this week including fun action shots of Charlie. He loves chasing his friend Laine who also serves as a personal trainer giving Charlie a healthy dose of exercise.

Three dogs and a trail

Friday morning, before the 70 degree weekend melted most of the snow, Charlie and I joined 2 canine and 1 human friend for a snowy hike.

It was a fun challenge with sunny skies and new dog in the mix. Charlie and Laine, the Springer Spaniel, ran and chased their usual dance, tiring each other out. Cleo, who seemed to want no part of their chaos, aligned herself with the humans.

These photos are from a rest stop near the end of our hike. As you can see, Charlie’s puppy energy was still in high gear and Laine isn’t the least bit tired.

Charlie – the good and the bad

Charlie, 10 days away from turning 6 months old, has filled our days and hearts since he arrived here in April.

As you can see from these pictures and clips, is adorable and quite an athlete. He’s able to jump, run, and turn on a dime.

He’s made friends with many dogs including Sydney, the Irish Wolfhound from across the street, Laine, a Springer Spaniel, and other doodles we’ve met. Most of the time he’s wonderful and wants to make us happy. Yesterday, when he discovered a bag of garbage tossed over the side of the road, his canine instincts took over. I was no match for the treasure he discovered. Sadly, there was nothing I could do but climb down and get him. Today we are back to training and he’s back on the leash.
