The word “no” was not an option for Ernesto and Hilary, a physician and physician’s assistant who are the proud parents of Charlie, a two-year-old, all-white Goldendoodle. Each time they visited their friend and saw this little runt of the litter, they became more and more attached. Although their work hours were demanding, they were not in the market for a dog – well, you know the rest. Charlie now owns Ernesto and Hilary!
When they brought Charlie home, she was instantly integrated into the family with two cats, Steven and Johnny, who welcomed her with delight and even “groomed” her curly hair upon arrival. Charlie lives at Pixon and is quite well-known around their neighborhood. In fact, the staff at Foxtail saves treats for her. Charlie won the pooch contest at Pixon and is often referred to as the Pixon Pup. I am sure she’ll have her own agent soon!
Hilary immediately had Charlie socializing by bringing her to the dog park to play with the other pooches. Charlie wiggled fast and furiously at the entry gate to the park waiting for Hilary to catch up to her and open it. The other PAW-RENTS looked at each other with a bit of fear. How is this little dog going to handle running with the big kids? Well, Charlie surprised everyone! She flew into the park like a bolt of lightning. Her short legs didn’t stop her at all. When she is finally done running after quite some time, her white fur paws now brown from the dirt, Charlie goes home and runs to the shower. Charlie loves shower time – nothing like settling in for a relaxing evening. Charlie is ready!
Charlie and her family will soon be moving to Baltimore so Ernesto can move on to his fellowship. Everyone will surely miss this adorable, spunky pooch who has captured the hearts of so many. We wish you the best as we all say, “Goodbye, Charlie!”
