Man's Bestie: A Dog's Tale

A dog wags its tail with its heart.
-Martin Buxbaum

Last Christmas we got Charlie this chew toy from L L Bean.
He loves it!

This may strike you as odd, but every night we go through a ritual.
It starts as Christen gets into the bed.
Then, Charlie jumps up in MY spot declaring me floor material.
Then, I kick Charlie off and explain to him that he is indeed still a dog.

After he runs down his toy, he plays "chase me till I let go" for the next 15 minutes.

Dogs are smart, but when it comes to Charlie, he is the Doggy-Howser of animals!

For some reason Charlie has always loved to destroy things.
You are witnessing the destruction of a softball...
As to date, this is # 103,309,930,939 balls destroyed by Charlie.

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

― Josh Billings

We have cats here. They also think they are the boss, and they also like to destroy things.

Cats are also known to capture the hearts of their owners. I had a cat named Tommy when I was little that I LOVED so much!

I would be nowhere without all the pets I have had in my life. All of them have been my caregivers more than I have been theirs. Charlie looks like he is one of that kind, no matter what he trashes.
