So, here is our new dog Charlie who came from Springer Rescue. He and Roscoe got along right from the get-go and I think he is giving Roscoe a bit more pep in his step. No pictures of Roscoe here because he needed a bath and was not looking his best. These photos were taken with my iPhone which was the only camera I had handy at the time. Better pictures later.
As I said, Charlie came from Rescue and the story that came with him was that he was tied to a fence for two days and then Animal Control came and put him in the pound, where he was put on the "e list"... a soft term for execution. Luckily, Springer Rescue entered the picture and put him in a foster home for about a month and a half. I couldn't figure out how he was tied to a fence for 2 days but after looking at his paper work I see that it was during Christmas and Animal Control didn't pick him up until December 26. It breaks my heart. But I swear on the souls of all my dogs who have passed, that he will be given a wonderful life for the rest of the time he is on this earth.
He is a beauty and poetry in motion when he is on cat patrol. I watched him in the backyard yesterday and was transfixed by his poise. Wish I had a video of that. Anyway, here he is and welcome to my life, Charlie boy!
