Thinking about the old days: my dog Charl

Thinking about the good old days: my dog Charl

My little buddy Charl the shih tsu, who I’ve known since he was a pup, is now in his golden years.  He is 15 and has been slowing way down lately.  He is pretty much blind now but shows no worrisome signs of ill health.  He’s been a remarkably healthy dog.

Although this photo is from last year, I chose it because he seems to be thinking back on the good times we’ve shared together.  He used to be one heck of a hiker, believe it or not.  With the most unique personality of any dog I’ve encountered, he’s been a constant source of amusement through the years.  I’m going to miss him when he goes.

  1. Hello, I headed over to take a look at your pooch 🙂
    He is lovely! He has such a different coat to Max, so much character too!

  2. A beautiful portrait of your precious little pal.

  3. Charl reminded me of the two sweet dogs we had. Macken left us a few months ago…

  4. It is the most painful of all losses. He’s still got many years in him, though.

  5. You always cherish them even more when you know the time is short.

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
