Charlie before we met him!
Love at first sight! 😍
Charlie’s a great hiker and climber!
He reminds me to stop and smell the flowers.
He’s willing to get dirty in the name of fun!
And he is happy to get cleaned up and looking his best!
Charlie wants to operate heavy machinery.
Charlie loves forest life!
But the thing Charlie loves most is being close to Mama!
Happy birthday Charlie! 🎂💝🎂
I grew on the wisdom of Charles Schultz so I believe “Happiness is a warm puppy.”
Clearly Charlie subscribes to the theory that getting dirty is the sign of a good day.
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.
Charlie met some Australian campers and they “shared” their chili with him. Doesn’t he look happy?
Charlie checking out views of the Continental Divide stops to pose for the paparazzi.
Charlie’s favorite hangout has given him the title Ruler of the Ottoman Empire
Playing in the snow is fun, fun, fun! Resting with cross paws and guarding his stick.
The sweet face 😍 with love in his eyes. Charlie turns 9 months old today and he weighs 53 pounds.
Puppy + Snow = Happiness!
Climbed up to the top
snow gently falling … peaceful
Charlie led the way.
