Finding Charlie Brown

Finding Charlie Brown

Blackwood Charlie Brown  #ChessieCharlie
My search for Charlie started in the spring of 2015.  I had decided I was ready and needed to narrow down what kind of dog I was going to get.  So many to choose from and now that Charlie is with me I often get asked, “why a Chesapeake Bay Retriever?” (Chessie for short)  It’s simple really…I like the breed.  I like that they’re loyal, protective, intelligent, a high desire to be WITH people, a high desire to please, confident, and calmer than they look.  Chessie’s while not low shedding, they shed quite a bit less than a German Shepherds and Labs (which they often get confused for), and they’re very low maintenance with grooming.  I was also ready for a friendly looking dog.  So by summer of 2015 I knew I was looking for a Chessie, now I needed to find a breeder.  I spent hours upon hours on the internet researching for what I was looking for.  Someone that had been breeding for more than 10 years, whelped the puppies in their home, had children, focused on the health and sound temperament of the breed, didn’t breed several types of breeds within their kennel but instead focused solely on Chessie’s, could provide sound pedigrees, allowed people to visit the kennel, meet the breeding pair, and had primarily positive references or reviews. That brought me to Blackwood Chesapeake’s.  Eric Wise was awesome! She let me know which litter was going to be best for me and after what felt like a crazy long wait she let me know when the puppies were born. 

Blackwood Charlie Brown was born on August 15 2016.  He is one of 7 males out of a litter of 9 puppies. (pictures at the end) He was born on a Monday, and we did a happy dance the day we got the text from Erica.  I knew 8 weeks would go by both really fast and excruciatingly slow at the same time.  The preparations began. It started with making sure I had all the equipment I needed. I had a crate, toys, leashes, collars, treats, and dishes.  What I needed was new grooming tools. Chessie’s have a unique coat type; it’s coarse, oily, and curly. After a few hours of research, I discovered everything I currently use for my German Shepherd was bad for the Chessie coat. They’re only supposed to be bathed a couple of times a year, and you shouldn’t use oatmeal or tea tree shampoo’s. (it strips the coat of the oils it needs) Also any metal brushes can damage the coat, so it’s recommended that only rubber brushes are used.  Another big difference for me is that this new sidekick was going to be riding mostly up front with me, since my kids take up the back seat. With my last 2 puppies (14 and 10 years ago) I just put them in the back seat, but I was nervous about this puppy trying to climb in my lap, get down by my feet, and in the worst case scenario be injured in a collision. Another couple of hours of research and I found the car safety harness I wanted to use.  A waterproof car seat cover, a few new interactive toys, some new high value treats, and a crate cover finished off the shopping list.

Here is the shampoo, crate cover, brushes, and car harness I use for Charlie

Now I needed to think about getting him home! Puppies should stay with their litter until the age of 8 weeks. It can be a very crucial part of their development and I often get called out to houses with pups that have been taken away too early. Mother dogs usually wean puppies around the 5th week and by the 6th week the puppies don’t NEED their mother anymore. But they do NEED their littermates. 8 weeks exactly was on Monday October 10. After a few messages with the breeder we scheduled Charlie’s pick up on the morning of Friday the 7th. To reduce his stress as much as possible the day of the pickup, a couple of weeks before I picked him up, I sent Erica a clean hand towel with our family’s smell on it. I had everyone rub their clean hands on it, and even rubbed the top of Lucy’s head with it.  Erica gave it to Charlie a few days before I picked him up and it came back home with us with the smell of his littermates, Erica, and her daughter on it. The breeder made the puppy selections at 7.5 weeks. I found out which of the male puppies I was getting just the day before I picked him up.

#ChessieCharlie
I scheduled a potty break about halfway home (my Dad’s house) for him to get out and walk around for while before getting back in the car. This was his first ride, and it took him awhile to settle down. He wouldn’t actually sleep on the way to my Dad’s house, and he did an awful lot of whimpering, but when we got back in the car, he was exhausted enough that he slept the rest of the way home.  My family was anxiously waiting for us to get there, and everyone fell in love at first sight! We had 3 names picked out for him and after getting him home we couldn’t agree on which one fit him best. He spent the first 2 hours as “puppy”. We started over, got the baby name book out, and after lots of ideas were thrown around, we settled on Charlie Brown. So here he is….the newest Sidekick of PAWS Training and Behavior Modification LLC.

Also if you log on to Snapchat support webpage they say in their Best Friends help section that else can see your list of iPhone Cases sale Best Friends. This feature is just for you. The picture is most likely fake and the rumour of the return of Best Friends is false, Snapchat users were pretty quick to be drawn in, tweeting that the return of the feature meant the end of most of their friendships.. iphone 6 plus case This is especially true if shareholders have the capacity to ignore the high short term volatility and hold for the long run.We say this because while the fundamentals have remained relatively resilient, the market has grown increasingly pessimistic to the point where it really does not care about valuation anymore. Despite already trading at less than 5 times FFO and approx. A 40 50% discount to NAV; the market sees nothing wrong with dropping the share price by another 5% overnight after mixed quarterly results.And even more in the weeks after CBL (NYSE:CBL) reported poor results and cut its dividend:We see opportunity here.iphone 6 plus case iphone 8 plus case Rich are different from you and me, novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald once supposedly confided to Ernest Hemingway. To which Hemingway famously replied, They got more money. A DCI vice president told the court the system could dial numbers sequentially, like a Automated Telephone Dialing System, or robocaller, but the company presented an affidavit retracting his testimony. This court didn't care. It considered a system that uploads numbers, then dials them and transfers answered calls to live collectors, also called a predictive dialer, sufficient evidence though some courts disagree on what qualifies as automated dialing system..iphone 8 plus case iphone 7 case Also don pretend to know what Marxism is because you watched a 5 minute video from Jordan Peterson(who doesn specialize and is educated in what Marxism is, post modernism, or gender studies, cultural studies, women studies, etc). He is a right wing propagandist. "Liberals" don call anyone who asks them to back up their conspiracy theories with sources "marxists".iphone 7 case iphone 7 plus case Tom Begaye, 28, pleaded guilty to luring Ashlynne Mike and her brother into his van last year. Begaye sexually assaulted, then killed Ashlynne. Her body was later discovered outside Shiprock. JCPS is the 26th largest school district in the United States. Students are assigned to school based on the race makeup of each school, no less than 15%, no more than 50%. Race is defined as Black and "Other".iphone 7 plus case iPhone Cases sale BIVV WI (when issued) will also start trading on January 12. The WI tickers should disappear on February 1.Note: BIIB WI "will not carry the right to receive shares of Bioverativ as part of the special dividend distribution. If shares of Biogen common stock are sold in the "regular way" market after January 17, 2017 but before the distribution date, the shareholder is selling the right to receive shares of Bioverativ common stock with respect to such Biogen shares as part of the distribution." [Biogen press release of December 22, 2016]I believe speculating in BIVV WI and BIIB WI will be a specialty trade and only a loose indicator of how the regular stocks will trade after February 1.Biogen is fairly widely held, especially among investors specializing in biotechnology.iPhone Cases sale iphone 6 plus case In probability theory, the expected value of a random variable, intuitively, is the long run average value of repetitions of the experiment it represents. For example, the expected value in rolling a six sided die is 3.5, because the average of all the numbers that come up in an extremely large number of rolls is close to 3.5. Less roughly, the law of large numbers states that the arithmetic mean of the values almost surely converges to the expected value as the number of repetitions approaches infinity.iphone 6 plus case iphone 7 plus case Batteries can't keep up with the demand for usage. This can limit industrial productivity. This is where GenDrive fuel cells come in. Secondary causes of tics (not related to inherited Tourette syndrome) are commonly referred to as tourettism.[38] Dystonias, choreas, other genetic conditions, and secondary causes of tics should be ruled out in the differential diagnosis for Tourette syndrome.[13] Other conditions that may manifest tics or stereotyped movements include developmental disorders, autism spectrum disorders,[53] and stereotypic movement disorder;[54][55] Sydenham's chorea; idiopathic dystonia; and genetic conditions such as Huntington's disease, neuroacanthocytosis, Hallervorden Spatz syndrome, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Wilson's disease, and tuberous sclerosis. Other possibilities include chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, XYY syndrome and fragile X syndrome. Acquired causes of tics include drug induced tics, head trauma, encephalitis, stroke, and carbon monoxide poisoning.[13][38] The symptoms of Lesch Nyhan syndrome may also be confused with Tourette syndrome.[28] Most of these conditions are rarer than tic disorders, and a thorough history and examination may be enough to rule them out, without medical or screening tests.[26] iphone 7 plus case. .

Each and every dog owner's journey is difficult but in the end, it's the care that matters. If you genuinely care about them, the rest of the journey would only be enjoyable for you. And it seems to be the case for you.
