Charlie Bear here. Finally I get to share my side of the history.
Mom Peep likes to say “If I knew then what I know now….” Well, I could say that too! And we’ll let you be the judge of the outcome.
Susan Kennedy says: Dogs are miracles with paws.
I concur! I am a miracle and I do have paws. I also have a lot of other things. Like deep-set eyes that sparkle when I’m happy. Like a cute little body that Mom Peep loves to snuggle and a cute little face she likes to smack kisses on.
I also have issues. Yup, they’re still there after all these years in my new home. I bark at other dogs (that fight or flight syndrome I guess), and I spin around and chase my tail when I’m stressed or excited.
But on the whole, I’m pretty good, considering when I came to live here five years ago I had so much more to deal with.
I’d like to ask you, my loyal readers to weigh in. Please respond by Facebook post, Twitter reply, or email to email@example.com to this question: would you like me to tell you about:
- my issues (and how I work to overcome them)
- things I have learned (from big dog mentor Rex)
- tips on how to love a difficult dog (like me)
- something else from my point of view.
Please weigh in with the comment or just say #1, #2, #3, or #4.
Thank you from Mom Peep and me, Charlie Bear the Rescue Dog

CB, I have read your book and read most all of your posts and after all we are “Goldust Twins” and have a lot of the same issues but you know there are new things happening most every day; so what the heck!! I will take ALL #’s 1, #’s 2, #’s 3 and #’s 4.. Will so be looking forward to any new or any old things you want to send my way…
Woofs and Wags, CB…
You’re the best!
Love to hear #3,.
Coming right up…
C.B., Miracles do happen, even in the lives of lowly doggies like us. Aren’t you glad God led two loving people to give you a wonderful home? We are very thankful that God gave us Mom and Dad Hubler. We love them to pieces.

Bailey and Skippy,
Oh, I am indeed soooo happy to have this great home, just like you have a wonderful home. We’re pretty darn lucky dogs!
Woofs and wiggles,
I think #3 & #4 are different from what I’ve heard before. But will enjoy whatever you want to tell, Charlie.
Woofs to you!
I’d actually like to hear all of the above. #1, #2, #3 and #4
You got it: coming up #1, #2, #3, #4!
Wiggles to you,
