Farm Friday:  Charlie 
I mentioned a few posts back about a meal disaster that not even the farm dog would eat.

This is the farm dog.

Or as I like to call him, Charlie B. Barkin
(name that movie)

He's a good dog.

He loves to rub his rough, wet nose up against you and nudge you until you pet him.

I came home the other day and as I got to the curve in the driveway, which runs parallel to our garage, I noticed Charlie laying in the yard.  Head on the gravel road.  The dog didn't budge one inch as I drove by.

I came out of the garage with my camera and snuck up on him....

I'd be lying if I didn't check to make sure he was still breathing.  He's an older dog, and he wasn't moving.  

Then I noticed he was running in his sleep and whimpering.
Chasing rabbits?
Barn cats?

As I got up to him, he opened one, groggy eye and looked my way....

Well, hi there Charlie B. Barkin!
How was your nap....

That good huh?
No.  I won't be bringing you any of that left over pasta dish ever again.
But I'm sure if you asked the Big Guy there may be a pork chop in your future.

I love that dog.

I like old dogs. He reminds me of our 13 year old Golden.
What a cutie!

He's GREAT! Wow! I wasn't expecting him to be so cute. Then again, I don't know what I was expecting. Hi Charlie!

You need to do before and after pictures if he gets his annual summer trim.
