A Busy Week

This past week I have been super busy! charleystealingdinner




See that napkin there in the corner? That was mom’s pizza from Super Bowl night! It was yummy, except that it didn’t have pepperonis on it.


Then I got to help in the garage!

I looked fabulous that day!


Sky didn’t help at all…

At one point, Mom was sweeping and she started yelling and screaming “It’s alive, it’s alive!” She is such a drama queen. Dad pointed out to her that she had shoes on and that she could just step on it.


Really mom?

Later in the week, Sky and I met up with Shawna next door.


The rest of the week went like this…





Dog Gone Cold


This past weekend Mom and Dad took Sky and me to the Dog Gone Cold 5k. It was SO exciting — I met many new friends and humans!




That’s my new best friend Francie!

Or maybe his name was Frank?

I’m not sure, everything was so exciting!



Anyways, we all started lining up, and then a big boom went off and everyone starting running. I don’t know exactly what happened, but it sure was exciting.


Eventually we got to the turn around point.


Sky didn’t get it. skyturnaround

When we were almost to the finish I gave Sky some encouragement because I knew she was so over this back at like mile 1.


The finish…

I won!

In case you need to see it again in slow mo…


And the rest of the weekend…




(That’s Mom.)


About me

Hi, I’m Charley. I’m a seven year old spotted dog who loves to explore EVERYTHING! I live with my mom and dad, and with my big sister Sky. She’s a dog, too. Sometimes we explore together, but most of the time she’s snoozing on the couch. Unless she hears thunder, rain, wind, fireworks, or the garbage trucks on Mondays — then she runs to the bathtub.

Anyways, life is pretty great for us. Mom and dad got us a nice house with a big back yard (the squirrels are so annoying, though!). And we get to go for car rides all the time, and it’s the best because we can ride with our heads out the windows. Sometimes we even get treats.

Things I Like

  • Belly rubs
  • Uncooked noodles
  • Car rides
  • Doughnut holes
  • Bones to chew
  • Peanut butter
  • Gaurd duty

Things I don’t like

  • Sky getting belly rubs when I’m not (I growl)
  • Baths (I growl)
  • When mom and dad cook and the kitchen gets smokey (I run and hide)
  • Cats (I growl)
  • People walking by our house (I growl)


Mom asked if we wanted to go to camp today.

Uh, duh, Mom, of course we want to go! It’s only the best place ever! We get to play outside all day with our friends. I hope Spot and Buddy are going to be there. And Molly and Roxie, too. They are hilarious. Roxie can’t stand to get her paws wet and Molly always tricks her into running through the sprinklers; then, Roxie totally freaks out and gets so grumpy!

My favorite is playing tug of war with Sammie. He is a big yellow fella and he is so strong. Sammie usually wins but I don’t care, it’s fun anyways. One time Sky helped me win and I don’t think Sammie liked that. Shh, can you keep a secret? I have a tiny crush on him! But don’t tell my parents because they can be SO embarrassing sometimes! One time at the dog park, I was running with my friends and tripped and my Mom came running over to see if I was OK like I was a puppy.

At night time we get snacks and I get to stay with Sky in the same room. Our counselors say we are supposed to be sleeping, but I usually just talk to my neighbors. Then in the morning, we get to go back outside all day!

I know when it gets close to when we are going back home because they give us baths. I hate that. And what’s even worse is they cut my nails! It’s just awful! I wish Mom and Dad would tell them to stop doing that, but every time we get picked up Mom goes on and on about how good we smell. So then I go home and roll in the yard. Hmpf, take that mom!

Things I like about camp:

  • Staying outside all day
  • Not getting yelled at by Mom and Dad
  • Playing with my friends
  • Seeing Sammie

Things I don’t like about camp:

  • Baths
  • Baths
  • Baths
