I had my ankle surgery on Friday all went well and I have some time so I thought I would give you an update on Charlie (Chuck). First off what an amazing little guy I don’t think I have ever had such a smart pup! He has turned into my wife’s side kick and goes where she goes. The first night I put him right between my two Beagles and he slept the whole night through without a peep and continues to do so. He is trying very hard to be their new best friend which is going slow but not for a lack of trying on his part I think they are too set in their ways for his new ideas and the constant coaching and pep talks he gives them but they do allow him to share in daily chores like holding down the couch.
Outside he has quickly taken well to helping run training camp with bear hounds which started 7/1. He has mastered riding shotgun both in the hunting truck and on the four wheeler and is quite helpful bringing me equipment like the trackers and the radio mic whether I need them or not.
In the woods and fields up north and at home his nose is always going and he never hesitates to take the lead to hunt out whatever wild things are there to be flushed. He did a phenomenal job flushing a painted turtle while swimming down by the pond who chose to retreat into his shell after ample coaching and pep talks from Charlie plus I think he got pretty dizzy being spun like a top.
On a serious note though I have never had a pup that catches on as quickly as he does. For his age he is doing a great job with all of the basic obedience commands and is a natural when it comes to retrieving, he is a true pleasure to work with.
We are really enjoying this new member of our family and I will keep you updated with his progress.
Here is Charlie at 2 months of age…this is a non-edited pic of him…haven’t had time to deal with my own shots, ha! He is sleeping in a small kennel beside me (Tamara) and is getting better each night at going longer and longer without a potty break. He is full of energy and is responding beautifully to his name! We love him! Thank you so much!
