Charlie







This post is dedicated to Charlie. For licking away my tears and filling my life with laughter in your own silly doggy way. For endless, unconditional love. For loving me despite of who I am. For accepting me just as I am. Thank you for being my very best friend.

I guess “Charlie” is really lucky to have friends (best friends) like you :). Nice to meet you Charlie, Hiiiii!

Charlie looks serious, except the snow on his face gives away his goofiness. :) You would love the stray dogs in Argentina. I am planning a special post on them that you will enjoy!

Rahi said...

Blu said...

Oh Charlie, you are a darling, my big woofer is a complete nutcase and full of life. She was not at all easy to train!! But will do most things for a biscuit. Magical pictures of your handsome companion, big hugs from Blu x

@ Alok: I think I'm the lucky one here. :)

@Bindu: LOL! He only looks serious, you should meet him...he's one big goofball. Looking forward to reading the post on the stray dogs in Argentina...sounds interesting! :)

@Rahi: Yes, he is an Alsatian...they call them German shepherd dogs here in the US. Would have loved to see Tiger...do put up some old pics sometime. :)

@Abhijit: Thanks for telling me your favorites. Glad you enjoyed reading it. :)

@Blu:
Your woofer looks adorable (i think that is her photo you have on your blog?)...i think all GSDs have delayed maturity...Charlie still seems to think he is a puppy, I dont think he realizes he's a grown dog. He was super easy to train because he's so very playful...he's not food driven at all so I had to train him by using play as a reward. He'll do anything for anyone who'll throw him his favorite red ball. For him enthusiasm and play are the biggest rewards and he'll learn any trick so long as you hold a ball in your hand and talk him playfully into it. :)

hey thanks Vee, for introducing Charlie. He looks like a great pal loved the last photo and the third last the best - he looks so homely and dear somehow with the snow all over his face, reminded me of Mumpitoosh, my baby god son.

Charlie looks like a tiger :) Nice clicks... Make him jump in the air and click :) that will be an amazing snap

Vamsee said...

I am not a dog person, but am touched for your love for Charlie. Nice pictures. I love the 4th one with snow on his face.

@compassion unlimited:
Thanks...and hope to see you around here more often again. :)

@Photographer pappu:
LOL. Never saw him as a tiger before. Will try the jump and click thing sometime...his breed tends to have hip trouble though so I try not to make him jump too often.
Welcome to my blog. :)

@Vamsee:
Thanks :)
Not a dog person?! *horrified gasp!* Is there such a thing? LOL.

Picture said...

Like the snow covered face. Have seen dogs playing in sand, watching them play in snow must be a whole new experience

~vagabond~ said...

Charlie pretty much plays the same way whether it's in the snow or in sand...he likes burrowing through it.

Welcome to my blog! :)

Hi, first time here, Charlie's gorgeous... reminds me of my dog Ginga.

~vagabond~ said...

Thanks, mosilager...would love to see photos of Ginga too. And welcome to my blog. :)

Aww what a beautiful dog and such a sweet post. I especially loved the photo of him sitting down in the snow with his head and nose covered in it, reallly captured his playful side and made me go awww out loud :)
