Shamless Plug: Vote for my Beautiful Baby, Charlee

Everyone knows I love my dog…don’t they?  Well, you should.  Anyways, A Novel Menagerie is hosting another 2010 Beautiful Baby Contest and there are a ton of entrants in the competition.

How can Charlee compete without votes from you, especially against the dynamic cat duo of Emmy and Finn from Presenting Lenore and Milou of Bermudaonion?

Can’t keep Charlee away from that snow.

Here’s what I had to say about Charlee for the contest:

Name:  Charlee (with two e’s because he wants and needs to be different)
Breed:  He’s a Keeshond, not to be confused with a little Pomeranian or a Chow Chow, and believe me that has happened.
Age:  He’s 12 going on puppy.
Gender:  And obviously from these pronouns, you’ve deduced he’s a boy, though he is neutered.
Why He’s So Loved:        I’ve included my favorite photo of him from this winter’s snow storm in his new outfit.  He just loves snow…eating it, tumbling in it, catching snowballs in his mouth, which leads to eating them, and just running around in it.  He’d live in the snow if I’d let him, but its too darn cold.  I’ve had him since I was a pup when Anna and I were in college and just had to get a dog because we were never getting married and would be old maids anyway.

Go check out the competition and vote for Charlee anyway!


  1. He is too cute! I love the story of why you got him.

    Jenners: It is so true. Everyone asks me how old he is and when I tell his age, they're like are you sure?

    Lenore: Charlee would love to meet Emmy and Finn…they are adorable and he loves cats

  5. Charlee is sooo sweet! Emmy and Finn want to meet him 🙂

    No harm in a shameless plug! Charlee is so adorable, but receiving some pretty stiff competition from Milou!
