The Charlie Bravo Story

Thank you…

…for a good night’s rest, one not marred with jarring thoughts of doom and despair or buzzing, nerve-jangling phone calls in the wee hours of the morning. Thank you for self-entitled dogs that obviously have no concept of fractions and right angles but somehow realize that diagonal and even horizontal are the ways to occupy the most real estate. Thank you for sleeping arrangements obviously engineered to help me overcome any claustrophobia concerns, the equivalent of slumbering in an MRI machine constructed of snoring, farting, dogflesh. Thank you for providing me with an organic alarm clock who’s saliva output is sufficient to ensure that searching for the snooze button is out of the question. Thank you for a wife who is understanding enough to realize that resistance is futile and it’s best to just adapt and improvise, and that sleeping with her head at the foot of the bed might be considered by some as a form of canine Feng shui.

But most of all, thank you for a bunch of fellow misfits who understand my blessings completely, a family that stretches around the globe, brought together by the stories of a once sad but now sassy diva dog.

And then they all said…

    Your privacy is surrendered, you share and inspire via your family’s world WITH the world…so we may all be one focus…if not…but just for a short while each day.

    What makes this king sized bed seem oh so small and little? It must be the lonely dog/s who are sleeping in the middle!
    My lil love has a cosy kennel but my cats have a competition to see who can snuggle in the closest to me – one on each side. Lucky for them that I love them very much!

    CB, when are Mom and Dad going to accept that uninterrupted canine slumber is the most important thing in the Casa — inconvenience to the hoomins is the least of concerns 🙂

    Thank YOU for taking the time to share your life with us. You actually reached me in France. Apparently your positive puppy thoughts were well transmitted to my household. Upon returning from a one hour walk with my “Buddy” two days ago, I find a dog (one of many) sitting in front of my house. Unfortunately for him, I screamed “OMG did you guys send out an e-mail telling everyone to stop here?!!!” :* I wouldn’t have it any other way <3
