I would like to introduce you to Charlie, he belongs to a co-worker of mine. Recently I was able to sit down and visit with Charlie and ask him some questions.
CS: Charlie, what kind of dog are you?
CM: I am a golden-doodle, which is really neat because I am like two dogs in one! Poodle (so that all my friends/ family who have allergies aren’t allergic and so my mom isn’t vacuuming the house every single second of the day) and golden retriever – so I am so loving, friendly, and very loyal.
CM: I am ALMOST 1 year old. Its so close… I cant wait to be ONE!! My birthday is December 6 and my mom told me that we are going to have a party with my friends and that I will get to eat puppy ice cream!!
CS: Do you have a favorite color?
CM: My favorite color is blue – we like the Yankees in our house!
CS: What is your favorite treat?
CM:I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER! My mom gives it to me all the time (don’t tell dad) 🙂 If I do all my tricks and if I am a really good boy I usually get peanut butter and it is the BEST!
CS: What is your favorite activity to do?
CM: I love going on walks with my mom and dad – sometimes we go hiking at Percy and that is really fun too – but man am I tired afterwards !!!! We just moved into a house and I really like running in my backyard and playing Frisbee!
CS: You have such a shiny coat, what is your secret?
CM: Huh? I think you will have to ask my mom this question…. maybe lots of peanut butter ?
Mom’s answer :: Buddy Wash Shampoo – its the best! And good quality food – it really does make a difference.
CS: Your curly hair is amazing, women pay a lot of money to get that curl, is that natural?
CM: Well I do have a girlfriend Luna, maybe that’s why she likes me… I’ll have to ask her next time I see her. My mom tells me that my curly hair comes from the poodle in me. And yes its natural – dad would NOT be happy if mom was trying to make me into a fru fru dog… or at least that’s what he says….
CS: Do you have any favorite TV shows that you like to watch?
CM: I really like watching golf…. I think it’s because I like watching the ball. Usually dad and I have to watch it when mom isn’t home though… she doesn’t seem to think that watching the ball bounce around is very fun… AND I like football too. My mom doesn’t watch things that are very fun for me so usually I only watch TV when dad is home.
CS: What’s on your bucket list?
CM: Well my dad was telling me about something the other day – I think he said it was called “a therapy dog” – Dad said there are a few kinds of dogs that are able to help people who are sick in the hospital and I AM ONE OF THEM! He told me it takes lots of hard work and training but that if I work really hard one day I can go visit the kids and adults who are not feeling well and need a friend to play with. And I happen to think that would be a really neat thing to do…. oh and breaking into the pantry and eating A WHOLE JAR OF PEANUT BUTTER while mom and dad are at work.
