Charlie just turned a year old last month! He is the absolute love of our lives, my favorite child of them all! He is perfect in every way….handsome, charming, sweet, lovable, loyal, well behaved, loves kids, loves our 27lb cat, loves taking hikes. We go to a natural preserve park near our house every morning. It is a huge off leash area, and he loves to run through the trees, up and down the hills, chase after balls and sticks and socialize with all of his friends. He is the perfect size…38 lbs and I don’t think he is going to grow any more as he stopped a few months ago. He follows me every where. He is never left at home alone. He is always with someone or waits for me in the car. He likes that much better than being left alone at home! He doesn’t get into the garbage, he doesn’t eat anything that drops on the floor unless we tell him he can, he doesn’t chew anything except his own toys, he doesn’t jump on furniture, he always sleeps in his crate, never has an accident. He knows a ton of tricks! He is just perfect in every way. My kids and husband adore him as well.
