My Sweet English Springer Spaniel Charlie
by Betsy Kiehl
(North Carolina, USA)
Our sweet Charlie.
My sweet Charlie was my first English Springer Spaniel. Charlie was a real sweetheart from the beginning and grew to be the typical Springer......she could spring into the air at a moments notice.
Charlie loved to run and loved to play. She had a total of 26 toys, and she played with and cherished each one. When my daughter was born, we began to refer to Charlie as "Mother Charlie" because she looked after my baby as though she belonged to Charlie. When our cat, Bella, had kittens, "Mother Charlie" began to produce milk and tried to take care of them as though they were hers.
My sweet Charlie died last June 2009, at the age of 14. She died mostly because her body was just so tired, but she also had cancer. Charlie died in her home surrounded by her human family who loves her so still to this day, and are still heartbroken over her loss. Charlie is missed.Return to Springer Spaniel MemorialReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
