Charlie, my friend...

It's been a sad week, and Mum and I haven't been able to type about this, 'cause every time we tried, both of us would get all weepy.

Our very, very, very first blogging friend (back when our blog wasn't a real blog, in 2004) made passage to the Rainbow Bridge this past weekend. Charlie is now up there with oh too many of my paw friends. We know they are having a rompin' good time, feeling healthy, happy and young again. But we miss Charlie, and all the others, so much. I don't think I will every get used to this, hope I never do.

Charlie, and his Mum Brooke, Dad Greg, and Brother Opy, welcomed me to the dog blog-0-sphere with open paw, and encouraged me to have a real blog so they could come and leave pee-mails. We were one of the first pups to join their amazing organization - Dogs With Blogs - where we've been lucky enough to meet hundreds of new pup friends. Over the years Charlie and his family have given selfishly of so much of their time making DWB what it is today, raising money for paw charities and lots, lots more; never asking for anything in return.

I so want to run up to Brooke, Greg and Opy and give them lots and lots of doggie licks...but they live so fur away. So in honor of Charlie, we've decided to honor all the Aussie pups looking for furever homes over at my Rescue Me blog this week, hoping that some folks will be as lucky as Charlie's family to find their soul mate.

Oh how we miss you Chuck, always will. Run free my fighting friend. We will never forget you.


  1. Aw, I'm so sorry to hear about Charlie! :( It's always sad to lose a fur pal. It sounds like he had a great home though, and was loved very much.

  2. It was a rough weekend fur many of us...

    BUT thanks to Charlie, we had each other...


  3. What a wonderful tribute, Johann! Charlie will never be forgotten!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch


Thanks for barking in!
