This is Charlie. He’s a Boston Terrier, and from what I’ve learned he has a typical BT personality. Charlie loves everyone. I take that back, he loves everyone except Lee’s cousin Bob. We don’t know for sure why he’s taken a dislike to Bob, but it might have something to do with Bob wearing his stinky barn clothes whenever he comes to visit. Other than Bob, Charlie falls in love with everyone who comes here. He’s especially fond of children, and he likes other dogs. He can be an awful pest when he loves you, and we call him The Stalker.
When you meet Charlie for the first time, you’ll want to stare at his goofy eyes, and you might even think he’s ugly at first glance. Yes, he does have those buggy ,outward facing eyeballs. We like to say that he’s looking east and west at the same time. It won’t take you long to think he’s adorably cute though.
We love him, and he’s our furry child.
I’m so sad to write that Charlie passed on July 31, 2014. He had hemangiosarcoma, which I wrote about here and here. We’re so fortunate to have caring vets. Our large animal vet was here for the horses and when I told her we had an appointment to have Charlie put down the next day she offered to do it for us, in our own home. It was such a comfort to have him just fall asleep on the couch . We love our small animal vets too, but it was less stressful for all not having to take him in to the clinic, among other patients. I called the clinic and cancelled the appointment, telling them that Charlie had died. They sent us the sweetest card, with everyone signing it and several personal messages and memories of Charlie. RIP little Charlie. You were loved by many.
