Wild or styled?
Charlie had his first full grooming this week. As you can see, it’s pretty dramatic. Either way he’s adorable to me! 💙💙
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.
Charlie received a wonderful present for his eight month old celebration: SNOW! He’s 50 pounds of fun and silliness, still growing, and still providing an excellent amount of entertainment.
Snow! I want to go out and play.
Charlie loves playing in the snow!
Charlie has been sick this week, not that he acted sick or knew he was supposed to be resting …. but yesterday we finally met up with his friend Laine for a hike. This action shot says it all.
Charlie is recovering from his puppy surgery. He was snipped and chipped on Thursday.
Gary Larson’s Far Side cartoon (above) always come to mind when I hear of an animal being neutered. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, look him up, you’re in for a treat.
Did someone say treat?
Charlie seems to be recovering well but I’m not sure how I’ll keep him on limited activity for 10 days. I hope we can make it for 7.
He looks adorable in the cone and really only needs it if he’s being left alone or at night. Charlie is doing well, but doesn’t understand that running around the house and leaping down the stairs are not what to doctor ordered.
