Charlie Bear here again with another wonderful rescue dog. This one lives with Martha, and she watches our blog posts. Don’t forget — Mom and I are featuring rescued dogs (like me) about once a week. Want to see yours? Send it via email attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s what Martha said about Jesse:
“Jesse is a rescue. My vet said he’s between 5 – 6 years old. He is so well behaved but doesn’t want me out of his sight. I call him my bodyguard. I wish I knew some of his history. I feel it would make sense of some of the things he does. For one thing, when I give him his food he sits and looks at it but won’t touch it until I’ve sat down.
When I put his leash on to go out he ALWAYS goes straight to his food dish and grabs a bite or two. He doesn’t beg for people food and when I first got him he never played with toys. I had to actually teach him to play.
The photo is of Jesse on Christmas Day opening his packages. I got him just before Thanksgiving last year. He is a 20 lb. Yorkie on steroids. Actually the vet said he IS a Yorkie but from the old breed before they started downsizing them.
I have never had a dog that is as loving and protective as Jesse. I’ll give you a quick story. Jesse and I were in bed sleeping. My bedroom door was shut and my roommate came in later that night. I was asleep and felt something tapping me on the shoulder. It was Jesse. He got me awake and then stood straddling my chest and watched the door. Never barked nor growled, just stared at the door. He heard my roommate come in and was protecting his momma. He is a jewel! I love that beautiful little person in a furry body.”

Wiggles & Woofs,
Hey, do you care if Mom Peep posts this info about her new book? She doesn’t want to. She says it’s blatant and shameless, but I told her, “Hey, we’re talking about rescue dogs here. And I’m a rescue dog! Of course you should tell people about the book!” So here it is. I snuck it on the post when she wasn’t looking.
