This is my dog, Charlie, the seventh member of my family. He is a black lab mix and we are not sure what other breeds make him the perfect pup he is, but that is quite alright. We love him to death anyway. He is seven years old and we have had him since he was just a little puppy of a few months. When we first got him, my parents surprised my siblings and I by taking us to a shelter in Long Island called Northsore Animal League while we were visiting family. The moment we saw him in the shelter, we knew that he was the dog for us and took him home with us immediately. Charlie is such a huge part of my life and I love him with all my heart. I do not think that I would be me without him, which is why I chose to include him in my About Me page. Of all the pets I have ever had, Charlie is my absolute favorite and I would not change him for the world.
