Progress with Charlie...

Well if you haven't had a chance to see the list of checked items on the list, they have pretty much all been checked off except for the critical 2. I have been working with Bonnie at Military Mascots and she has been a great help in getting this taken care of for me and helping me out along the way.

I got a chance to see Charlie the other day while on patrol when we stopped by the outpost. Before we headed there, we made a stop by the Green Zone (this large internation base in Baghdad) and while at the PX I picked him up a big bag a Science Diet dog food. I dropped that off at the outpost. When I went back there to find him I was looking around and found him in the shade in a puddle that was on the ground. He seems to love those dirty puddles, but they really help him stay cool. Anyways when I saw him, he had just seen me and I dont know if its just wishful thinking on my part but he seemed super excited to see me. Now that he's getting older he's teething less and not bitting as much which is good. He also almost has 'Sit' command down!!! We were playing for a good while in back before I had him follow me out front where the rest of my platoon was. Of course as soon as Charlie showed up everyone began paying him all the attention in the world. He's got such great guys and I know he loves it.

So we will be heading out to the outpost in a little bit and I will be finding out some info about getting his rabies vaccine through the Ministry of Agriculture. Hopefully good things and I'll keep yall posted. I'm going to take some pictures of him and I got some old ones from when he was real little and will be putting them up soon.

Alright well that is about all for now. Know that he is doing good, getting big and receiving plenty of love! Thank you all for all your support!!

Give Charlie some extra scratchies from New Hampshire! So glad to hear things are moving forward... as previously mentioned, if there's anything we can do on this end, esp in the transport once he's back to the states (I'm not sure where you live and would be sending him to go home), we're here! I posted a link on my blog sidebar, as well as put it in an earlier post this week.

Another note - can you email me (my email is attached to my comment) and let me know if I can mail you some treats and things for Charlie? Let me know what is needed. It sounds like you can get him food, but if there's things needed that I can send, please say so.
