new day every day
Charlie enjoyed life and was looking for new adventures, sometimes very silly ones, every day. The first image shows her playing grab with a fisherman’s glove picked up on the beach. She would collect and bring home an array of items such as this glove and especially fluffy and other abandoned pram rejected toys . The second image has her learning petanque a game she adapted to quite easily but soon tired of and the third picture demonstrates the intensity of skink hunting at Bendigo, a pursuit that could occupy her for long periods of time. Skinks are small lizards about 3-4 centimetres long and .5 wide. I cannot remember her ever catching one but that did not detract from the pleasure of the game.

She looks like she was a fun companion and I love your line ‘new day every day’…it describes my Ivy too.
Charlie was an exceptional dog. I miss her every day as we did so much together and you never quite knew what she would discover or create.
beautiful memories of a great love! ❤
Thanks Annette. She was a dog who loved life, sadly it was shortened.
She was an amazing looking dog. Love her curled tail. Xx
Afghans are an amazing breed , Charlie was our fifth across 40 years and she was exceptional. The curled tail is a sign of communication with other Afghans when hunting in rocky terrain and also an indicator of good health.

She looks to be in excellent health in her photos, such a gorgeous coat, another indicator of health? Maybe a sixth in your future? 🙂
She was the healthiest and fittest Afghan we had, at 9 she was still fast and strong. Sadly Cushings Disease and Larangyl Paralysis were a deadly combination in a few months.
