Charlie saved Lucy
Last evening, Lucy, our Brittany, disappeared behind the barn. When it was time to come back into the house, neither Charlie nor Lucy responded to the whistle.
Then Charlie came to the corner of the barn and stood there, would not come. Then he disappeared behind the barn again. This was repeated several times until it dawned on Gene that something was wrong.
Lucy was choking and in distress. Her collar was caught in a roll of chicken wire and she could not free herself. Luckily Gene was wearing his hunting knife. He had to cut her collar to get her out. If it had not been for Charlie disobeying Gene we would not have found Lucy in time.
Charlie, our dog from the Police Station
He was found wandering near a small town. No one claimed him. We loved him from the start. He has been living with us, on the farm, for more than eight years. He loves cowboys and trucks. He loves to herd all animals; sometimes sheep and cows and sometimes chickens. When he hears thunder and lightning, he disappears. That is probably how he got lost in the first place.
Charlie is our Hero
