The Charlie Bravo Story

The Ballad of Charlie Bravo

Some time ago, dad was trying his hand at a children's book, and was attempting to put my story into rhyme; I told him that he needs to stick to his chauffeuristic tendencies and leave the writing to me. It's said that the young dwell on the future because they have no past, and the old talk about the past because they have no future; I disagree, as both have a past AND a future,…

The mountains are calling…

Just when I think that my story has ran it's course and is starting to die down a bit, something happens out there on the interwebz and there seems to be a resurgence in activity. With new people being adopted into the family at the Casa, I feel it's necessary to occasionally restate the message behind the story; when dad and Zach rescued me from the crate, they returned with the truck only to find…

The Story of Max

  Max here; Charlie's moping around the Casa as dad's out of town, so I finally got my chance to Shanghai the ipad. As with Charlie, my story BC (Before Casa) is unclear; there had been some puppy mills shut down in the mountains of North Arkansas, with a rash of abandoned dogs resulting from people trying to ditch evidence.  My sister and I were found in an abandoned house, screaming, not barking, in hunger,…

“Why then do you live, if you do not care to live well?”

  Diogenes was a philosopher of ancient Greece;  one of his best known eccentricies was to purpotedly wander the countryside with a lantern,  looking for the last honest man on earth. When the wealthy investors of his school sought to control his message by controlling his funds, he promptly took a lesson from the stray dogs in the area and took up residence instead in a large barrel.  His followers were known as Cynics, taken…

Hail to the Chieftess!

Some have wondered why I have spent so little time commenting on the presidential circus, er, primaries; this page is about sharing the GOOD news, not commenting on the bitchiness, big hair and bad pantsuits of one of the candidates. And I'm not talking about Hillary, or Bernie either for that matter, although both of those pontificating windbags could use a major dose of humility as well. It's slightly depressing that it would appear that…

Mom needs intervention.

This story takes place before I entered the picture, but it gives insight into the asylum that is the Casa Del Whackos; Dad is the mouth but mom is the legs of the operation, keeping his car stocked with dog food in the eventuality of finding strays, and she's the one that leaps into action when dad brings a dog like me home. Before moving out, Zach and Kat had always been instrumental in nursing…
The Charlie Bravo Story


It's incredible what you will hear if you take time to listen; recently dad and I were coming through the Ozark mountains late at night. Up there, cell coverage is spotty at best, and radio reception has to be set on perpetual scan to pick anything up, and even then the best you can hope for in that neck of the woods is snippets of "modern" country(yark) or, even worse, "contemporary" Christian, rather soul-less facsimiles…
