Charlie has a SM Weblog - http://charliesm.wordpress.com (http://charliesm.wordpress.com/)
This blog tells the story of Charlie and us, his SM, his surgery, and his future as it unfolds with his new family.

I haven't written yet about our flights from California to Ohio, and I want to write more about Charlie - what he's like in day to day life. But I thought I'd post the link to his blog now, as his surgery date approaches.

:thnku: Thank you, Karlin, for your help.:flwr:

This is going to be such a great way for people to follow your journey with Charlie and I think will be of real help to those wondering about SM in their own dogs or wanting to understand the condition better. Thanks so much for creating this! :) I know so many care about him and will want to know how he is doing.

Charlie is so lucky to have been rescued by you! I cant understand why the poor thing had to suffer with his ears and skin on top of his SM!! Thank goodness that you and your husband came into his life.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

Dear Charlie,
I've seen you lots of times when you were at the other place and, boy, am I glad you got to your forever home. You'll get a long nap tomorrow and that Dr. will try to fix you up special. Mom says we have to pray for wonderful, healing hands tomorrow. Take care, Charlie, Annie and I are thinking about you and we love you. Love, Freckles

Thanks so much for your kind words and good wishes for Charlie. :)
He would thank you himself, but he's been very, very busy playing with his toys and now he is snoozing! :slp:

Claire, the way the software is set up I have to approve a post before it will display. So I will go do that now. Thanks!

Cathy I think you are a saint for rescuing Charlie and taking such great care of him! I also read his blog on a regular basis... it gives us valuable information, hope and encouragement for Jack Sprat's future once he has/is able to have the surgery!
