Charlie has a birthday this month, his 9th. I haven’t written about him lately, so here’s a little update and some recent pictures.
Charlie continues to be incredibly quirky and a little bit crazy. He’s a Boston Terrier, and that’s how they roll.
One of his quirks is his obsession with making a nest of my clothing and other items he finds. He only does it when I’m not in the house and it can be pretty funny to see his pile and the treasures he’s amassed. One of his favorite items is an orange fleece jacket and it’s a recurring theme in his nest. He especially loves soft and fluffy fabrics. He finds things hanging on hooks, and his technique for snagging them is a jump and grab sort of motion. He takes things out of the hamper. He takes shoes and slippers. He never chews on anything. He just wants to possess them. Usually his lime green snaky is a part of the pile. I’m really impressed with Charlie’s ability to hold a piece of clothing in his mouth and jump with it onto our very high bed. He sometimes makes his nest on the sofa and will drag things from the bedroom into the living room.
Here are some pictures of Charlie’s nesting. There’s also a picture of him praying for food to fall from the table and into his mouth. Some people would call this begging but I prefer to call it praying.
