The picture of Charlie on the dishwasher door literally made me laugh out loud! Maddie would climb on the door to assist me with dishes. She still comes running whenever we open it.

Aw, those sweet & crazy (lots of holes here too) days.

You're so lucky that you have Buddy helping to potty train Charlie!

Wow, Charlie is a fast learner! That is amazing he's already telling you when he needs to go outside! He sure is a keeper!

Oh, he is definitely very bright! When he came around to get you he was telling you "this time I really do have to go!" Don't you wish you had that energy they have and then be able to just drop down, sleep for a half hour or so and then get up and start all over again! I saw he had a bully stick, does he like squeaky toys?

I guess if one believed in reincarnation, that would explain why baby Charlie is doing things the same as Buddy did. A number of years ago, my brother's wife suddenly discovered she was pregnant with her first baby about a month after our father passed away. They had been trying to have a baby for years, with no success. No miscarriages ...she just never fell pregnant. So they were overjoyed, in spite of the fact that at fifty, my brother was a tad old to be having a baby. Anyway, they found out they were having a boy & when he was born, they called him Jack, after our father. Little Jack grew up doing some things just like his grandfather Jack, though he had never known him. People who knew our father, would often remark on it. Hard to explain some things. Charlie sounds like a wonderful little fellow. Baby GRs are so smart.

I've been a way for a bit, just saw Charlie's dishwasher photo. I had to break out in a laugh. He's so adorable.

I had to do some baking for my human kid otherwise she would be jealous of Charlie having all my attention. Even before we brought him home she said she is going to #2 on the list again.

My Buddy does help, couple nights ago I was desperate for a sleep I begged my Bud to calm down little Charlie so I can have some sleep. Since then we moved to 3.5 hours between potty breaks overnight.

Yes that's what my Buddy used to do, sometimes when I was in another room and my daughter was in the some room with Bud she would say "mom Buddy wants to go out, he went around table".
Charlie likes his toys especially big teddy bear and balls, we've already lost one. And this morning I had to use big wooden spoon to retrieve a ball under the sofa, Charlie was very upset that the couldn't do it himself.

Hard to explain some things...
Before I lost my Buddy, there were so many things that I did not believe and wanted "a proof" to believe. But after you lose someone close to your heart you do not question "how is it possible?" you just believe and you are grateful to receive in any kind shape or form. I mean "how is it possible to find alive ladybug in the snow on cold November day?" I know my Buddy had his paws in it, it is a sign that he sent me. How was that done who cares, a ladybug was there and I still have her in a jar, couldn't leave her outside.
For some it might sound like going insane, I look into it as "spiritual growth".

In my experience, having a puppy after losing your heart dog has it's up's and downs. I remember the first up Having this sweet little tailwagging adorable puppy kiss my face like crazy first thing in the morning. Problem was that first thing in the morning was 5am and after a couple weeks of pure puppy love, I found myself loving my puppy, but longing for a dog. Lucky is now 10 months. My days are never "easy", but they are so much better! And the challenges of puppyhood were good for me. Somehow they started to help me to heal as I began to bond with the new guy who needed me so. I love hearing about Charlie and your adventures. And, believe or not, with my 10 month old, I miss those silly puppy days already. Thanks for sharing your story. Brings such a smile to my face. XOXO Patrice

There are some relationships in life that change the way you see the world. If you happen upon them--you will never forget. Buddy 10-5-2003-10-30-2011: My heart dog.

So glad that training is going well with Charlie! I know how moving it can be when a new pup does something that your Bridge dog used to do, he definitely has a hand in helping him to learn the ropes. Kiwi does the exact same thing when she has to go to the bathroom...she goes around the dining room table then goes and stands by the front door.
