Arrival Story:
Charlie was 7 months to the day old when he began to bark and bark at 2 in the morning, holding steadfast to the bedroom door, refusing to shut up. Irritated, I went to him to put him back in the bed when I realized that I smelled smoke. Yes, the house was on fire, and my daughter was on the other side of the house. Training counted, as I yelled to her, she went about her assignments without thinking, and we both made it out of the house and had the fire under control as the first engines rolled up. My husband, fishing with clients, decided it was probably better to stay away until I calmed down. He was right. To my knowledge, the only Sealyham to win the Victorian Cross was one who saved HIS family from a fire. We KNOW my daughter and I would have died in the fire without him. ADDED 9/28/2011: I regret greatly to say that Charlie will not be with us much longer. He is only 9 1/2 years old, but all of his organs are failing at once, rapidly, and he has stopped eating. He is not long on this Earth, but in our hearts forever and ever, and then some. Added 10/12/2011: Charlie died on October 5th, 2011. Please go to his last diary entry for more details.

Sealyhams are known to hunt badgers, otters, fox, etc. We know that Charlie is immensely strong, but the guy is afraid of his own shadow. We doubt that he would have been much of a hunter. These dogs use to hunt as a sport, much like golf, in that people would follow their favorite dog about the fields in Wales as they follow golfers now, hoping to be with the winning dog.

CHARLIE: the life of Riley

I will leave this post here for a while so that some of his friends can see it.
Charlie left us on October 5th, 2011, from ill health. He contracted a liver disease, and his other organs began to fail after that. He wasn't happy, but Charlie was in no pain when he went to heaven, gracefully. Charlie lived like a King, and he never had a bad day in his life until the last 3 weeks.
He saved us from dying in a fire when he was a very tiny puppy, and thusly earned his position of alpha in the family. His wish was our command. No animal was ever loved as much as Charlie.
I believe he was the only Sealyham living in Louisiana, and therefore leaves this State lacking in the reputation of all Sealyhams' personality and style. Hopefully, one day, someone in LA will be up to the Sealyham standards and come to this State soon.
As difficult as anything imaginable, I now say good-bye for Charlie: Seaberdale of Charlemagne.


To a GREAT dog

To all who knew Charlie and to the more than 10,000 people who visited this page, I grieve immensely as I tell you that he will die in just a few days. His organs are failing and he has quit eating{animals just know they are going to heaven soon and hasten it by not eating}.
I know that you can empathize with us on how we feel, as all here are avid dog lovers and know that Charlie was an integral part of our family. It really is like losing a child (almost). Nothing feels worse, and I'll have to endure weeks of sympathy and months of idle conversations with people about dogs, and I will have to try not to burst into tears every time. It will be a long road I've traveled before, and I dread it.
Love to my Charlie who absorbed all of my tears throughout his life, I thank you, my dear sweet puppy dog,


that cat

The picture of the cat on my page is of "Otis," my human-sister's feline. I'd put him down as a family member, but as a distant cousin, and twisted in Mardi Gras string, well, I just couldn't claim him. He is amusing, though. My human isn't thrilled with his behind on the table, but then I'd be up there too if I could.
