This is one special lady. Her name is Anastasia Fontaines and she’s my friend. This whole month Mom Peep and I have been working on getting to 30 reviews on Amazon for the CHARLIE BEAR book. Amazon is where everyone goes to shop so they’re kind of a big thing in the world. In fact, just their name is intimidating!

Anyway, my sweet friend Anastasia tried to post a review. Amazon wouldn’t let her. Said something about her not purchasing at all through them, but she has (who hasn’t?). Anyway, then Mom Peep tried to get her review posted and it went up on the site…Hooray! And then they took it down. What’s up with that? Anyway, this is not a bash-fest on Amazon, even though they did pull a trick on us, it’s a LOVE FEST on Anastasia.

She’s my treat, just like the rest of you wonderful people out there who have bought and read CHARLIE BEAR and who have also written a review. THANK YOU!

So in honor of all of you who have taken the time to write a review, a goodie bag of treats is going out in the next week. Watch for it. And here is beautiful Anastasia’s review. You won’t find it on Amazon, but you can read it here:

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Lives One Pet at a Time, October 28, 2012

By Anastasia Fontaines
Actress/Singer CEO Angel Era Productions

I’m very devoted to protecting & finding our furry friends loving homes, so it was with joy that I read the story about this adorable rescue dog full of character & growing pains. CHARLIE BEAR reminded me that some shelter/adoption/rescue dogs come with issues, and this dog had his share though that did not deter B.J. and Roger from loving him. It wasn’t always easy for all of them in the beginning, including Charlie Bear in trying to adjust to a new lifestyle in his new home. We can only imagine what CB went through before B.J. and Roger took him in as family. Even though B.J. and Roger could have given up on him after he attacked their resident dog Rex, they worked with him to get over his issues. Most dogs who have been in a shelter or who have been rescued from the streets (or worse) just need time, patience, love, and training to make great family pets. Charlie Bear settled in to the tender touch of Roger and proved himself to be the cuddly teddy bear B.J. & Roger knew he could be with proper care and understanding. It’s a dream of mine to one day have a Rescue Ranch to help Cats and Dogs in need of a safe haven they can call home like in Charlie Bear’s case. They are pure love and deserve proper love, care and understanding. In the meantime, let’s save lives, one pet at a time in any way that we can. P.S. A reminder that it is Halloween and Black Cats in particular are targeted. Let’s keep them protected.

Wiggles and Woofs  to all!

      Dear Julie,
      Charlie Bear here – and Yes, my Fantastical Friend Anastasia is a pure delight and I’m proud to showcase her review right here on this blog. Thank you for saying that!
      My Mom Peep does like to have gratitude. She kisses me on the face all the time and tells me what a good boy I have become. It’s true, too!

    Whopee!! Charlie Bear & BJ for shareing Anastasia’s review of your story and of your history with all of us on here who read and post about the good/bad things we do also the furry friends that find homes out there where we are able to turn on our charms as we have to make things interesting by turning on our bad side on occasions when we want more attention for thats when we get more of it, don’t try to deny it now for you know its so true.
    We will try to watch out for black animals also if we see any for haven’t seen one around here in “A Coon’s Age”.(no pun intended.). Take care Charlie Bear, BJ & Roger and try to stay warm, it is about to get cold round these parts; was 40 here last night, and makes staying indoors and cuddeling up in a warm place just super cool.
    Lots of Bow Wows to all of you.

      Beaugie and Peep Mom,
      I won’t deny it at all! I turn on my “bad side” to get extra attention — and it works! I shouldn’t do it, but I do.
      It’s getting cold around here too, and Mom wears a jacket at night. She likes to stay in and cudde with me like I bet you do with your Mom Peep.
      Have a Happy Halloween and stay safe.
      Wiggles and Woofs,
      Charlie Bear

    What a great review, Charlie Bear! I think I’ve told you before that I am a rescue and so are the three cats that live with us and my baby sister, Kenzie. We all know what it’s like to be looking for that special forever home and how lucky we are to have found a mom that loves us and takes care of us. And (blush) my mom says she is really the lucky one because we give her so much love. Piper and Abby, our two black cats, both send a big thank you for the reminder to protect your black cats this time of year, too.

    Take care, little buddy!

    Your pal,

      Man, isn’t it great to have a forever home? I remember vividly what it was like out there on the streets: foraging for food, defending my territory, trying to stay warm at night. WAY better where I am now! You guys, too!
      Thanks for the kind words about Anastasia’s review. She is truly a blessed being who loves animals and wants to help them all she can. And what a dear to mention the black cats and keeping them safe.
      Stay indoors!
      Woofs and Wiggles,
      Charlie Bear
