Charlie has been our best buddy for eight years. Last week he seemed lethargic and so we took him to our local vet and then to a speciality animal hospital. We found out he had a large tumor in one section of his heart. Charlie now continues to be with us in our memories. He went with us on our vacations. He loved riding on ATVs and thought we bought the side-by-side with a bed in back especially for him. Jim had to give him a ride each time he used it. He reminded us about mealtime. He took the job of protecting us very seriously. Charlie was a great dog and friend.
