Farewell Charlie


Charlie
We got word this morning that Charlie,
The Big Dog at Dogs with Blogs and
an inspiration to many of us, died this
morning in Australia.
Charlie was an inspiration to all of us,
and he was my personal hero.
I still have the original e-mail
he sent to welcome me to Dogs With Blogs.
Rest in Peace Charlie.
Wirey licks and kisses to Greg and Brooke. Head Butts for Opy, your
beloved sister and greatest competitor.
See ya at the Bridge, old pal

Gussie, Teka and Muzzer,
We left our condolences at Charlie's blog but it felt very inadequate. You said it much better than we did. It's a feeling kinda like the King has died. Charlie leaves a tremendous legacy and following. he will be missed.

We didn't know Charlie, but we can tell from all the very nice comments we've read about him, that he was a very special dog to lots of blogging doggies and their people. We feel sad, very sad, for his family. Though it's some comfort to know that he made his way to the Rainbow Bridge and doggie heaven easily and swiftly, we still realize how hard it is to lose a good friend and a member of the family.

Plese pass on our most sincere condolences,
Jake and Fergi

Well said, Gussie.

We know you were there from almost the beginning, when the DWB was so much smaller, and you all formed a very close family.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Hey Gus,
Were youse guys all outta town when the storms went through Memphis? We hope that y'all and you stuff are all OK. Is Graceland OK? Are all the ribs safe? How about FEDEX? Aren't there some ducks or fowl at some hotel? Are they OK?
