The Girl sent me this link with Charlie in mind: Game of fetch turns ugly
I don't know if Charlie could swallow a whole stick, but he appears to be working himself up to the challenge: two days ago he threw up a couple of pieces of tree bark.

In other Charlie news, he's gotten too smart for this house. Our kitchen pantry has a flimsy folding door, and Charlie has taught himself to open it and feast on the garbage. He bites the wooden slats and pulls! So now we have to have something constantly blocking the door, which makes my life annoying because I have to move a gigantic space heater every time I need to get food or throw something away.

I took some photos of the husband and the pup wrestling on Ace Ventura night. This one turned out hilarious:


Stay tuned for photos of Charlie's birthday party in April; he's inviting six of his closest friends over for cake...

I don't mean to alarm anyone, but that dog is upside down!

We had some Yorkie puppies that ate a whole tree stump. It was actually pretty rotted and really melded with the ground with mushrooms, and fortunately they were not posionous. They nibbled it every chance they got. There were three of them, tiny little nibblers. I have a photo of them in a field of daisies, munching away. Our Yorkies have all been veggie lovers and woe to the cook if she gets out lettuce, carrots, potatoes, cucumbers, celery, sweet potatoes and practically any veggie but onions, and does not offer a round to the doggy. We are probably one of the few families in the world who give left over salad to the dog. (sans dressing) Just read the dog eats stick link and would advise you to make sure Charley chews his stick before he swallows!!!

Would the pup still be able to open the garbage door if you put one of those childproof latches on? It would definitely save on having to move a heavy space heater out of the way.
