Hi folks,

That's us home now, with Chico all settled, and introduced to everyone, only thing is we'v decided to re-name him Charlie, as we thought it suited him better, and as he almost completely deaf it makes no difference to him;)

He has settled so well for his 1st day, just an absolute dream, a little about him for you all, he is 12yrs old, has a grade 3 murmor, however at the moment that is very settled with his medication, we had a visit to our vets today, and he was extremely happy with his general state of well being, and also with his meds.

Personality wise, he's just so gentle, we are so happy,and lucky for that matter to have been alowed to home him:D

Here's a few pics of his 1st day....



Hello Lucy...


Tried to get all 4 in here....

He's really beautiful. :D

He looks very well for his age,not an ounce of excess fat on him!
He deserves a comfy retirement home,looks like he's landed in clover.

Thankyou so much for giving this adorable gent a home for his twilight years, taking on a dog with medication for heart problems is not for everyone. I applaud you.cl*pcl*p

Thankyou, he seems to have taken everything in his stride so far, he's picked a spot on the sofa, and that's been him:slp:

The 1 on the couch with Lisa, is Lucy....our youngest:d*g:

Aww bless him what a lovely old boy!!

Oh Ryan thank you so much for all the photos - tears of happiness here to see this wonderful old fellow so happy, making friends and just where he should be - cuddled up on the sofa to enjoy his retirement.

He looks amazing for his age - I adore the oldies, there is something so special about them.

I wish you a long and happy time with Charlie - like the change in name too, Chico didn't really suit him.

I hope Jake and the girls are enjoying their new companion - love the photos of them all together, especially the bribery LOL

Thank you again for adopting Charlie cl*pcl*p

What a handsome old boy. You've got yourself a lovely dog, well done. cl*p How lovely to see an 'oldie' get a chance. Did you mention how he came to be rehomed?

Thankyou again everyone fr your kind words:thmbsup:

Did you mention how he came to be rehomed?

It's a sad story to be honest, he's been a loved family pet of a retired widow all his life, but she took un-well, and had to go into care, and there was no-one to look after him, so he was passed into rescue.

On a brighter note tho, after his 1st night here, it's went really well, he's slept straight through over night, curled up beside the girls in our room, no probs at all:slp::slp:

He's a little picky with his food just now, but hopefully that'l settle in the next few days as he gets used to us and our routinesicon_nwunsure

Here he is this morning, after our wee 1st stroll of the day....

Congratulations! he looks such a wise old owl with those eyes! He is so lucky to have such a great new home.

God Bless you Ryan for taking on this sweet ol' gent. He's beautiful. I feel really sorry for his person, she must be missing him and he's missing her...
It's a good loving new home you're giving him and it is a very commendable thing that you have done! cl*p

27th May 2010, 05:35 PM
What a wonderful story and wonderful photos. I love, love, love his eyebrows!!!! Thanks for sharing and bless you and your family for making a place in your home and hearts for him.

Thakyou Desrae, and to everyone else for your lovely words:thnx:

He's just ate his first full meal since arriving here, i think hunger eventually took over and he decided enough of this picky nonsence:wink:

It was the old faithful, boiled chicken in rice that got him eating, iv yet to meet a dog who doesn't like thaticon_nwunsure:lol::thmbsup:

So sad that Charlies previous owner had to go into care, but it is so lovely to know he as found such a wonderful home :). Charlie is a handsome gent and looks so contented already, they are all lovely photos :luv:

27th May 2010, 07:54 PM
Charlie is such a sweetie. :l*v:
Like other people have already mentioned, well done for giving this old gent a home. I hope you have many happy years together. I hope the previous owner is told that he is gone to a wonderful home where he has two other Cavaliers and of course Jake to look after him.
