Charlie, A Funny Little Man

by Laura
(Liverpool, UK)

Charlie gave us so many cuddles and laughs for almost 16 years, and for that we will always be grateful. He often thought he was human, and would sit at the table with us for Christmas dinner, with a paper party hat on his head.

He was a lovely Yorkshire Terrier, and he had a friendly, feisty personality. He was a good dog who lived a good, healthy life until very near the end, when old age got the better of him, but thankfully he died peacefully and without pain.

He died an old man, but I keep remembering him on the day we met him in July 1995, as a tiny, excitable puppy, jumping up and down inside a cardboard box. He was a lovely dog, and we will remember him always.

Thank you for being a lovely fella, Charlie, and a good dog... hope to see you again someday. You were the best. XXXX

I'm so sorry, Laura, to read about the loss of Charlie. He sure sounded like quite a happy bundle of joy. I liked reading the part about Charlie sitting at the Christmas table with a party hat on his head.

This dog seemed great for movie-making. That was so cute! I'm sorry you posted no picture of him but I can well imagine an "excitable" Yorkshire Terrier spreading endless love to all around.

May he always live in your memory. Please accept by heartfelt sympathy on the loss of Charlie.
