Charlie's Gotcha Day Present

But first... a pretty girl you might recognize (or maybe not since she's SO grown up from her time here in Teeny Tiny Tabby Town!). She had a birthday yesterday too.

It's Roxie!!!

Just LOOK at those gorgeous lynx points! Mother Jefferson certainly had quite the variety pack. (If you missed brother Clay's guest appearance, check out yesterday's blog post). Roxie's mom Carol reports that our pretty girl celebrated her special day with her favorites: chicken and ice cream. 

Thank you for the pictures, Carol. I love seeing updates from all of my fosters, but Ruby's siblings will always have a special place in my heart (and while our girls look strikingly different, their eyes are quite alike).


September 3, 2011... Charlie came home forever.

So what do you get the dog that's thrilled with everything?

We opened the door to the foster room, that's what.

"Whoa, mister... not so fast."

"Charlie can sniff Garnet's back if Garnet can sniff Charlie's toes... okay?"

"Belle is going to stay RIGHT HERE!"

"That's okay, Belle. Garnet will rub herself on the dog for you and test for danger."

"See? No Kaboom!"

"You try it now."

"No way!"


"The Roo does NOT approve of these shenanigans!"

"Come on, Belle! He's nice!"

"Okay, then... your loss. There's more Charlie for Garnet then!"

"Hey, dude. You could use a breath mint."

"Oh girls... he's DREAMY!"

"Would you quit sniffing my head? You'll steal all of the dog smell!"

"She's swell, Mom. Can we keep her?"

Don't get any ideas.


  1. Awwwww Charlie wants Garnet!!! All doggies should have their own cats. Let's see. Duke's favorite cat is Kipling. Ruby's favorite cat is Smokey, Eula's favorite cat is Toby and Emily, my tiny dog, her love of her life is my cat Tai. LOL! :D

    1. Charlie HAS a kitten already. The Roo loves Charlie (and he loves her). She even plays with his tennis balls.

  2. I agree with Tina. Garnet would make a good present for Charlie. :)

    1. Charlie already has a kitten, you know ;)

  3. Aww Chuckles is such the ladies, ummm, kitties' man!!

    And Belle's expressions are cracking me up! :)

    1. I cannot get over how sweet and gentle he is with kittens. They all tend to adjust pretty quickly to him, but it's always the girls who are wooed over first. Malibu, Ruby, Garnet... Chuck could have quite the harem if we let him.

  4. Oh and I forgot to say what a pretty young lady Roxie is now!! She looks so soft and plush that I just want to give her a birthday squeeze!

  5. Hmmm... I have, in fact, gotten some ideas -- whether or not Charlie has :)

    1. I've gotten those ideas too, but what if there is another lab out there who needs a kitten too?

  6. "See? No Kaboom!"

    Kelly for the win.. best line I've read in a while..

  7. Awww..that is so sweet. Garnet is a very brave kitten, but Charlie is obviously enamored too! I love the breath mint line and picture. Too cute!
