Have Some Charlie by CanineHybrid Have Some Charlie by CanineHybrid
Wanted to pull together a collection of images of my dog, so his beauty could be seen by everyone. Nothing much, I mostly want to upload this as a tribute. I had been planning to create a character reference of him for years but never got around to it, nor have we ever taken professional pictures of him, so this is what I got.

We rescued him at about one years of age in 1999 and he was my first and only dog. Today he has passed on and I already miss him. RIP Charlie, thank you for sharing your life with me and my family. :heart:


Do check out this beautiful acrylic painting from :iconshadow-wolf: as well, she really captured his spirit, and the title is especially appropriate.



And this very short video captures what he was like best [link]

There's been a few more pictures done of him as well :)



Charlie, the smooth coat border collie

What a handsome dog! I'm so sorry for your loss, Riley. Losing a pet is so hard, but he was lucky to have a canine-loving friend like you :) May he rest in peace

Beautiful dog.

I'm sorry about your loss.

I just lost my betta fish last night. But losing a fish is nowhere near the magnitude of losing a dog.

I'm sorry to hear about that, I remember my first dog, had her since before I could walk or talk. It was hard when we lost her, but I'll always have the memories. -hugs- Well, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened" ~Dr. Seuss

I'm sorry to hear of your loss, sister...it's crushing to lose a good family pet...I just got back from the veterinarians office, myself...had to put our Xena, our most athletic goat, to sleep...:(

If you need me for anything, please send me a message or a voice mail...I'll make it a point to have an ear open as soon as humanly possible....damn work gets in the way, sometimes...

I know how you feel, Riley. Last may, I lost my dog to cancer, and she was 9. I was attached to her like she was a little sister, and you must have been just as attached to your Charlie. Just know that my blessings are with you, in these rough times. I hope you get to feeling better... :hug:

RIP, Charlie.

I am so sorry for you, Riley. I'm a dog owner myself (Spike, a Chihuahua) and I know that a dog is more than just a pet; a dog is Family, and we never do any harm to our family. We never leave each other. I wish you the best in life. May Charlie's soul live the afterlife he wants up in heaven. God bless you. May He (God) help you in your times of need.

I am sorry for your loss. I know how a dog can be so much more than "a dog", they can be your best friend. They wag there tail when your tail your happy and when your sad, they sit by you begging to be petted (which in turn, cheers you up when you pet them). My condolences to you.
