Yesterday we had to say a tearful goodbye to our dog Charlie. A red heeler/Australian cattle dog, she has been part of our family for many years, but the light in her eyes had gone out in the last few days and we knew it was time for her to go. She was truly unique, a feisty redhead full of personality & a worthy nemesis to Bruce the cat. A cattle dog with no cattle to herd, she made do with making sure the cat stayed in line & chased the occasional coyote in her youth. We will miss her so much.
