Last week Charlie passed away. He was 14 years old. Charlie is the Dad of Smudge and Primrose. In 2011 is was diagnosed by ausulation with a heart murmur, which caused him no concern until around the last year of his life. He meet Sheila & Vincent in 2011, who have given him a wonderful life in retirement, with each year have visiting us with him all the way from Kent, to catch up with how he was getting along, and how they were. Charlie was a sweet natured, mischievous boy, as a Cavalier should be, and I know he is going to be so missed by Sheila and Vincent. He lives on with us in his two Great Granddaughters Teagol and Lottie.
Long live the Count Charlie!

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
