Give the gift of Charlie

Remember how you felt when you first heard the story of Charlie? Now you can share this story with family and friends with a Charlie Bravo Gift Box, shipped directly from the Casa del Whackos just in time for Christmas.

The Charlie Bravo Story


The suspension sighed in relief as the detective heaved his considerable bulk from the interior of the plain white Impala. He approached the modest ranch style house, and grunted his thanks as the uniformed police officer lifted the yellow crime scene tape; stooping was not something that got any easier as mandatory retirement approached. "Whatcha got, Lou?" "It's a bad one, Bill; come on back to the master bedroom, but I'm warning you, it ain't…

My dog FRAPS in public.

Dad here; one of the pleasures of having a pack of goofy dogs is the chance to watch them engage in a fit of the "zoomies". The technical term is "FRAPS", or Frenetic Random Activity Periods, of which Charlie is the queen.

Why I ride

Its especially delectable when we pull up beside a vehicle containing another dog, and I can see the jealousy etched upon their face; sure, they get an open window, but…

The Charlie Bravo Story


The Casa del Whackos is set to experience it's first hard freeze tonight, but we aren't too concerned; have you ever heard the term, "three dog night"? That's from the old days up in the Ozarks when the chill inside the cabin was measured by how many dogs one had to pile on the bed to sleep warmly; of course, even the hottest nights at the Casa has the capability to be a three, maybe…
