Charlie Bear here. Did you hear what that woman called me?

She called me SUPER CUTE! And she also said I had the best sense of timing ever.

I really like her!

That timing thing was about when I snuggled up next to Mom on the sofa like their cat Red used to do, to show her I really did love her, even if I was aloof to her most of the time.

The nice lady that said those things about me was Beth Nelson, one of the producers of Animal Wise Radio She co-hosts with Mike Fry and they not only do the radio show, but they also work together at Animal Ark Animal Shelter

On Sunday, June 24, they had Mom Peep on the radio show. She got to talk all about me and the CHARLIE BEAR book. But mostly, Beth and Mike wanted to hear how Mom and Dad came to adopt me, how they got through all the issues I came with, and what they learned after all this time together with me.

Beth asked Mom, “Why did you do it? And how did you stick with it through the tough times?”

Mom laughed and said, “Because he was so cute! How could we give up on such an adorable munchkin who just needed time to adjust?” Mom paused, and then added, “We got through it by remembering to give him love. Lots and lots of love.”

If you want to hear more of what Mom said on the radio you can listen to it here: (her segment starts at the 1:09 mark and it takes about a minute to download)

And if you haven’t heard about the CHARLIE BEAR book yet (I don’t know how you couldn’t, Mom’s been talking about it constantly!), here’s the link to see the reviews and everything. We’re really happy with it. Especially the picture of me on the front cover!

Happy Woofs & Wiggles to you,
Charlie Bear & Mom Peep

    BJ – I wrote this poem and when looking for the right picture to use (to read at our writing group) I found Charlie Bear . . . Is it okay to use the picture? Please email me as I do not want to use Charlie Bear’s picture if you wish for me not to–and, would you mind if it was published with the poem? and, if so, what would you like me to say for credits? thank you, Carla Phelps Wert

    Yes, quite a bit of chatter on a lot of things on Animal Wise Radio. I enjoyed doing the interview on CHARLIE BEAR. A true pleasure to talk to both Mike and Beth.

    WOW, what a wonderful interview, BJ. And it was interesting to listen to all the other “news” on Animal Ark Radio. Proud of all you said and how–even the chuckles. Charlie Bear didn’t seem so intimidating when told in past tense! Congrats.
