Psst! Hey dad! are you awake?
Good Lord, Charlie, it’s 0430! Go back to sleep! Mom will slap us both naked and hide our clothes if you get Mia and Max riled up!
I can’t go to sleep without a bed time story; tell that one about how you found the me in the crate, but leave out all the gooshy parts.
Charlie, that’s not how bedtime stories work; you know perfectly well that they are to to be told at night, not in the wee hours of the morning.
Well, dad, now that you brought up the fact that it is the morning, you know it IS now officially Charlie Bravo Day, and as such, I make the rules!
That’s all well and good, but how does that make a Friday any different than any other day? You always think that you make the rules!
You make an excellent point dad; now, you may proceed…
(Sigh) ok, here goes; there once was a guy who had a semi-normal life. Then he found an early Christmas present in the guise of goofy dog left gift wrapped on the side of the road, and she now rules the Casa del Whackos with an iron paw. She is a master of the guilt trip, causing him to forego many activities in which he would partake, as well as give up much food that he would enjoy, that she might have her way. His is now a remora-like existence, surviving on the scraps that she deigns to bless him with as she cruises the dark depths in search of the meaning of life, and if not that, the softest place in the Casa in which to sleep. At this rate, he will eventually cease to exist altogether and they will be forever as one as he is gradually assimilated into her vast black bulk.
What now, Charles?
I love a happy ending.
That is absolutely the cutest story ever told. I’m sure that she truly believes she has found her happily ever after!!
And to all a good night! (for a few hours anyways)
I love happy endings to! Happy Charlie Bravo Day!
She is such a gorgeous looking dog. I’m so glad she has a forever home with you xx

It’s her feet. Every time I see those snowy feet it just about breaks me. She’s just so Charlie.
Sweet dreams Charlie Girl…
She rules with an iron paw!
The best bedtime story I ever read 🙂
Charlie’s is a perfect ending 🙂
Love this bed hog, oh I mean Charlie .
Me to Charlie
Great job on the story Dad!
OMG Charlie! You are such the princess. I just found out yesterday that the newest member of my sister’s wacky family was found by a neighbor along with her sibling sealed in a plastic tote along the side of the road as well. Unfortunately, Daisy doesn’t possess your writing skills, but suffice it to say she’s the new ruler at THEIR casa!!
Love Charlie and so glad he is at Casa del Whackos.
What a wonderful way to start a Friday! Dad, just think how boring your life was BC!

Aww Charlie, stories with happy endings and soft landings are always nice to hear over again !!!
I want to come back as your dog LOL !

Never too many times to hear a bedtime story like yours, Charlie.
I have given up making my bed. I could not find Spike, terrier mutt, and Senor Miguel, cat with species identity problem. I looked at all of the usual hiding spots. I walked to the bedroom to find both under the covers snoring.
As it is written, so shall it be done
You’re such a good story teller Dad!
I lost my sister a couple days ago I needed a laugh and a bit of sunshine Ty dad and charlie
This is exactly why we’re here.
