" Charlie "

Charlie is a badly battered rescue Border Collie. We got him when he was two and were told by our vet he would make five if he was lucky.

He had his 14th Birthday this week, and, like his owner, he is slowing down but still enjoys life Charlie.

Re: " Charlie "

Mentally, Border Collies don't grow old! He's a lovely dog.

Re: " Charlie "

David - I have never owned a pet and until recently have never cared much about dogs or understood people's attachment to them. However last week I got to watch on TV a UK doco "Animal Rescue". It was about the RSPCA and the cases their officers had to deal with, some of them heartbreaking, even I was both distressed by the cruel way in which some owners were treating their animals and moved by the wonderful way in which the RSPCA were able to rehabilitate and find new owners for some.

You mention getting "Charlie" when he was two and wondering whether you might have adopted him as a new owner under similar circumstances? Anyway, I have always had a soft spot for Border Collies; I once had a girlfriend who owned one called "Mitzi" who I did become very attached to ... more deeply than her mistress was to me as it turned out! - ce la vie

That is a great portrait of Charlie, may you spend many more years with him.

He could well have been a case for " Animal Rescue ", and, despite his calm demeanour now, he put both me and Debs in Hospital during his early years with us. After all this time, he still hates to be cornered and lets you know it in no uncertain terms.
We are so glad to give him a second chance.
