At one time had two of them (CKCS's, that is). Mine were totally elfin' untrainable - probably because they (2 sisters) were the litter.
But you can forget all that when they snuggle into the space between your ear and your shoulder blade.
I mean, Really! Who doesn't like a cuddly dog?Dear JF,
As Dr. J. writes this, Lady J. is sleeping on his shins. Dr. J. was going to suggest President Obama, but he likes his cuddly dog with a tamarind chili sauce...OOOHHHHH!
In addition, The Czar chimed in:
She's beyond cute. The Czarina--and her mother--are nuts for charlies. There's quite a few in Muscovy, and the Czarina's mother talks to each one like they're idiots. If the Czarina could, she would "complement" Cujo, our semi-tame wolf by procuring one. With all the odd dogs in our neighborhood that seem to zero in on our house, she keeps hoping one will be a charlie so she can keep it. They are cute, friendly, and by God they're great with kids. Congratulations again!
You are right. Lady J. , and CKCS's are great with kids. Indeed, Lady J. put up with quite the onslaught of attention givers at The Lil Medstudent's flag-football tournament this weekend. She was drawing more attention than the game. Thanks for writing!
