A Dogs Story, Starring My Dog Charlie

Nothing like a good dogs story. Lots of them out there, and I’ve read most of them. And now I’ve written my own dogs story, Charlie: A Love Story. All about my wonderful, spectacular Golden Retriever, Charlie. A magnificent being. So magnificent that he inspired me to write about him. I’m a psychotherapist specializing in relationships, so naturally I talk with people day in and day out about their relationships, but it was my relationship with Charlie that moved me to write a dogs story about him.

Well, really the story is mostly about Charlie, but he needed me to tell it. A dogs story has to be written by a person. Though wouldn’t it be wonderful if dogs could write their own stories? I tried to get into Charlie’s head as much as possible to tell his story as he might want it to be told. I’ve included some things about me in Charlie’s story, but not much. And a little about some other people and about the pack members who lived with him – Barney, another Golden Retriever, and Sabrina, a Shetland Sheepdog.

But mostly my dogs story is about Charlie’s life, his trials and tribulations when he got older, what made him happy or sad, what made him want to be protective, how he battled melanoma, how his very strong will gave him the longest and best life possible, his life at his home in Malibu, California, his walks around the garden and elsewhere, his vacations, and so on.

And that’s what makes it very different from the dogs stories I’ve read! I hope you enjoy it. I loved writing it. And Charlie is an unforgettable character. I promise you!
