    Nice picture! Lovely hunk of coyote…

    I think Charlie was born in April, actually, so he was almost-five when the photo was taken, but is already five NOW! So… belated happy birthday wishes, big guy.

    Almost five! Congratulations, Charlie, you lucky dog….er…coyote.

    My dog looks just like that, only all black and not as fluffy.

    Happy Belated Birthday to both you and Charlie! If memory serves me correctly, your birthdays are pretty close together:)

    Charlie looks pretty contented and well he should be! What a great life he’s had and hopefully, he will continue to have many happy and fun years to come!

    Happy birthday, Charlie! Time leaps! I was in the States when I discovered this blog (which was also just started). I got back to my home country for a few years, and here I am, at my second assignment in the US, still try to stay in touch with Charlie and Shreve and the whole farmily. Thanks, Shreve, for sharing Charlie and the rest with us :))

    Happy Birthday Charlie!
    you brighten my mornings, every day.
    I’m so in love with this creature. He puts a smile on my face. He makes me laugh, he brings tears or joy. I’m so attached to him, and invested in this story.
    Thank you Shreve, for sharing Charlie with us…
