Charles de Dog!

While I was playing with the kitties at Best Friends last week, Ted went to Headquarters over at Dogtown. He said they had more volunteers than they really needed. Most of the volunteers want to walk the dogs, but in the afternoon they try to avoid it because of the heat.

The guy in charge kept asking if anyone would like to take a dog on an outing into town. When no one volunteered, Ted said he would do that, but we had a rental car. No problem - they brought him a blanket for the backseat, a portable water bowl, some treats, and Charles de Dog!

Charles was a really good boy and loved riding in the car. They got out several times and took a walk. He was good on the leash too. Charles is 12 years old, and isn't fond of other dogs, but he is great around people.

I hope someday soon Charles de Dog can know the love of a forever home!

aww - bless his heart. 12 years old and no home to call his own...how sad. There are so many.

I'm sure he appreciated some personal attention from you guys.
