Charlee’s Take on Holiday Portraits
Okay. So, we look adorable with our red bows, but whose idea was this?
Charlee Asks, “Naughty or Nice?”
This is clearly a rhetorical question, as it doesn’t get much naughtier than my Cousin Mac stealing treats from the gumdrop tree.
Charlee’s Top Six Picks for Staying Young in 2016
#1 – DIY, coconut oil moisturizing socks for soft, luscious paws – I use my Miss Piggy socks with organic coconut oil (see photo). Mom uses gLOVE Treat – a DIY, paraffin wax hand treatment with coconut and lavender oils. She heats them in the microwave … mmm! (www.glovetreat.com)
#2 – Dr. Peter Dobias Holistic Veterinarian (He is wonderful.) – My favorite products are his GreenMin and SoulFood, natural vitamin and mineral supplements for dogs. (www.drdobias.com) Mom makes me a delicious green shake every morning with berries – a great energy drink before my second walk!
#3 – Latisse – (I just look like I have eyelash extensions.) Try www.shoplatisseMD.com for the best deals.
#4 – Restylane – Still a favorite filler since its U.S. launch in 2004 when it won Allure’s Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award. (www.allure.com) (www.restylaneusa.com)(http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20041019005195/en/Restylane-Honored-Allure-Magazines-Beauty-Breakthrough-Award)
#5 – BOTOX – Who doesn’t need a furrow fix now and then? And still going strong after all of these years. (www.botoxcosmetic.com)
#6 – Laser? – No, thanks, I like my spots! Go to sleep! Napping most of the day keeps me rejuvenated for my walks. (#beautysleep)
Charlee’s Top 2013 “Pics”
Charlee’s Disney Connection (No, Not a Princess)
Being an expert with the lasso, Pecos Bill tried to rescue Slue-Foot Sue with his rope. Surprisingly, he was unsuccessful and watched while she eventually landed on the moon. With Slue-Foot Sue out of reach, Pecos Bill and Widowmaker were best buddies again. (Little did Pecos Bill know that Widowmaker had stood on the rope, thwarting Pecos Bill’s efforts to recover Slue-Foot Sue.)
So, what do Charlee and this Disney Classic have in common? Well, for Grand Jack’s birthday celebration, Charlee and I met him, Nano, and Mac-too (yes, still a naughty puppy) for a morning of shopping. Translation: my mother and I went shopping while my dad sat in his car, dog sitting both dogs. (Happy birthday, Grand Jack. Love, Nano.)
Anyway, recall that on Charlee’s first encounter with Mac-too, her brown eyes turned green with jealousy. (https://lovemydoghatemyelbows.com/2013/07/13/charlees-green-eyes/) And while Charlee hasn’t really wounded Mac-too (yet), she does not miss an opportunity to snap at him. On Grand Jack’s birthday, however, Charlee had Grand Jack exclusively to herself in the front seat of the car, ignoring Mac-too’s Tazmanian Devilish efforts to get her attention.
As the story goes, Grand Jack decided the puppy needed a walk to burn some excess energy. Charlee, still smarting after months now from Mac-too replacing her as Grand Jack’s best buddy, had zero interest in sharing Grand Jack on a walk with the puppy. So, she remained in the car to enjoy the spa-like tranquility of life “sans Mac-too.”
After a few minutes, Grand Jack and Mac-too returned to the car only to find it locked. Grand Jack peered inside to see Charlee, sitting in the front passenger floor with the car keys under her paw much like Widowmaker standing on Pecos Bill’s rope. But sadly for Charlee, Mac-too did not share the same fate as Slue-Foot Sue.
Instead, two AAA trucks and their Good Samaritan drivers were parked near Grand Jack, witnessed his misfortune, and quickly rescued his imprisoned keys from Charlee. With the car now unlocked, Mac-too jumped into the backseat again, thrilled to be reunited with Charlee. Good-natured Grand Jack, impressed with Charlee’s dog dexterity, gave her a pat on the head. (Yes, I know, rewarding bad behavior.) And, while Charlee coveted the petting from Grand Jack, she sighed heavily as she peered into the backseat at Mac-too. No, the moon simply would not be far enough.
