Then and Now

While going through years of Charlie photos to assemble his MangoMinster entry, I was struck by the extent to which I could see the adult Charlie (he's now 6) in his puppy pictures. Here's a sample:

He likes to rest his head on a stuffy, but stays alert in case something interesting goes on.


Charlie's always had a wild side, and it's always involved teeth. Fortunately he has them under better control now. Mostly ;)


He squints when he's so happy that he could just burst!


Charlie is a tease, and one of the ways he teases his dog-friends is to sit on them.


If he were a reindeer, I think we'd call him Prancer... ;)


Charlie also has a serious side. He's a master of the concerned look and an extremely keen observer of human behavior. Don't ever think you're getting away with anything around him.


He likes cats and treats them with reasonable respect, as long as they don't run. He does, however, sometimes urge them to run.


And then there's that whole "flat" thing.

I love him even more seeing these perfect side-by-side comparisons :) I think that is one of the best part of Goldens. No matter how big they get, they are always still their precious puppy selves!
