hello my name is charlie. i am a little old dog of at least 10 years. i live in north carolina with the malatesta pack of which i am one of now. I have lots of old dog stuff going on, like i cant see so good, and i cant jump down from things like the bed or sofa. i dribble when i drink or eat and i dribble the other way sometimes too which is kind of embarassing. sometimes i even step off the sidewalk and loose my balance and fall over. then i panic and cant get up so i scream for momma and she comes to help me. all the other dogs here are bigger than me except for princess duyan the chihuahua, but she is really a puppy still and very active. i just sit and watch her go nuts. the other dogs treat me ok. they know i am an old man. i just have to watch out for christian and brandon who are a little crabby. oh I know brandon you are not crabby. ok ok

about me

I did not like it much in the pound. it was cold and wet and i was in a run with 6 other little dogs who were a lot younger than me so they got to the food first. i cant see so well so i was always bumping into things or tripping over them. Lots of folks came by my pen and thought i was really cute, but when they found out i have a heart mumer, was almost blind and was ten years old, well that ended that. I was put in the unadoptable part of the pound and was scheduled for euthanisia. then momma came to get star and rocky the boston and said ok how much is it for charlie, and the pound lady said hes free take him and she did. At first momma thought that i might find a home with a senior citizen if she had me cleaned up and neutered, but after having me here she realized that i have to many old dog problems to get adopted, and besides momma IS a senior citizen and so she says i can live out my life here with her. Mostly i sleep alot and i wake up to eat and do my business. sometimes i dont wake up in time but momma just cleans it up and gives me a bath. i love baths..all that warm water, and then towels snuggles too. on sunday mommas friend carrie who is a groomer is going to clip me short for the summer and also get out the matts. mom has decided not to have me fixed for now cause i am so old and might not survive the operation. we will see about it later on. For now, like zafaria did, I have a home to live comfortably in and sleep the days away. when i am awake there is alot of activity around. I cnat see real clear but enough to get by. I am happy and lucky. when my times comes to go to the bridge it wont be alone in a pound gas chamber, it will be at home with momma and my pack and that is the way it should be..from mommas arms to Gods arms. For now i am content and would like to make some friends. There must be a lot of old dogs on here besides me.  love charlie

    Charlie, I know that we were only friends for a little while but I will miss you. I know that you are in a place now where you are no longer old and blind and sick. I can just imagine you running around like a young pup with all of the other DS angels. A candle has been lit for you on the Rainbow Bridge Part 3 group.

    Hi Charlie! I'm sorry I missed some of your journals and now they are archived so I can't respond. You do look really cute with your new haircut. Honey, just because you are 10 years old doesn't mean anything. I'm almost 12 y/o in July and I still have lots of spunk. You'll find a good home, my furiend. If we didn't live in Portland, OR we'd invite you up here to live. But, realistically, mom doesn't really have a whole lot of money because she is on disability now. Someone will want a wonderful boy like you. Love, Blazer
