Our Charlie passed over the Rainbow Bridge. It was very sudden, and we are numb and heartbroken. He was the happiest boy you would have ever met. His tail wagged about everything. But his favorites and there were many, walks, car rides, cookies, swimming, visiting with old friends or making new ones. Rides were maybe at the top of the list. Hanging his head out of the back-passenger window or a few times going for a ride in the Miata with the top down. He always made people smile at the traffic lights. He was always in Seneca Park at a minimum of twice a day and on weekends with his dog friends for a good long walk in the park. Living next to the park was the best place to live for the boy. Charlie was the adventurous sort, always in front and ready to go somewhere new.
You may have seen him and is girl Annie around town. If you watch television and have seen the Feeder’s Supply Picture Your Pets with Santa commercial the past three years, he is the lovable red Golden Retriever. Annie, his best friend is the cute blond Golden in the commercial. His partner in crime and his best friend, where one would go you could always know the other was near by. The one thing you can say about the boy was he loved his family more than anything. The happiest times of his life were when he was with Ruth and Larry (his Mom and Dad).
Charlie will be missed by all who knew him in his life and his two kitty friends, Max and Lilly. Charlie helped them on more than one occasion with their breakfast and supper. His companion Annie with whom he was always only a few feet from at anytime when at home, most of all Charlie has left a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. He was a buddy, our big boy and one of those dogs you can only hope you live up to the image he held of us. He made us better people by just being with him. We love you so much, Charlie Bear!
