National Dog Day

In honor of National Dog Day in the United States of America, I present my best friend, Charlie.  He is also called “Bunson” by my younger son for reasons that have never been disclosed to me.

Charlie tends to take a laid-back approach to life, except when there is snow on the ground.  Then he perks up and runs great circles in the back yard.

As you can see, his interests include napping, greeting visitors at the gate, and books.
