1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Charlie: Intense, cute, big ears, loyal, playful, independent, and FEMALE! (Everyone thinks I'm a boy because of my name. So frustrating.) Okay, "big ears" puts me at eight words, but they're an important part of my being!
|No, they're not wings, they're ears.|
Charlie: Oliver, Oliver, and Oliver! He never settles down! Moves ALL night long!
Oliver: Nothing! Why would I be awake at night? That's Sleepytime!
3. Who would you like to be?
Charlie: Me. And I am me, so why do you ask?
Oliver: An astronaut so I can fly into the sky. Or, the guy who makes the french fries at the fast food place (NOT at McD's though, and you know why). Or, a human so I can have a lap that I can curl up on whenever I want! Yeah, that's it!!!
|I'm sure I can fit...|
Oliver: Of course I can. I can do whatever I want. It's MY lap.
Charlie: But if you're a human, you're no longer a dog, so you can't curl up in your own lap. End of story.
Oliver: You take the fun out of everything.
4. What are you wearing right now?
Charlie: My very pretty hand-made, polka-dotted collar that mom bought especially for me.
|Isn't it gah-geous!|
5. What scares you?
Charlie: ME?! Nothing. Nothing at all. Ever. Ev-Er.
Oliver: Yeah, right. How about loud noises, quick moves, and being left alone?
Charlie: Wha...? I... I don't know what you mean. WHAT WAS THAT?! DID YOU HEAR THAT?! WHAT WAS IT???? Oliver, go see. I'll wait here and make sure the back of this sofa is safe.
6. The best and worst of blogging?
Charlie: Ah, the best! I think Oliver and I will agree on this one. MAYZIE and HER MOM are THE BEST for coordinating efforts for our dear friend Sandra following her awful loss in December. Blogville is a wonderful place filled with the best of people!
Oliver: Charlie, I think we do finally agree on something!
Charlie: The worst? It has to be the new word verifications on Blogger right now. That and Terrierman. We wish he'd jump off a cliff or read something based in fact before he blows steam about pit bulls.
Oliver: I can't believe it. We agree again!
7. What was the last website you visited?
Charlie: Well, if you mean mom, it's the Animal Rescue Site. She's been religiously voting for PAWS every day, hoping they'll win. It's where Oliver and I were rescued from!
Oliver: Yeah, I was on the site earlier today, and PAWS is in the lead in Connecticut!
Charlie: You were not. You can't read, you have claws, and can't type... Why do you make stuff up?
Oliver: You really are no fun. But PAWS IS in the lead. So there.
8. What is the one thing you would change about yourself?
Charlie: Really...? Change...? Me?
Oliver: I'd try to smile more. I don't think I smile nearly enough.
9. Slankets, yes or no?
Charlie: What the heck is a slanket? I like my fleecy blanket, a piece of which I sent for Sandra's quilt, AFTER I kissed it and paraded it around the house for a proper send-off.
Oliver: I don't know what a slanket is, but I'll bet I'd like it. It sounds like it would make me smile!
10. Tell us something about the person/people who tagged you.
Charlie: I think I'd like Mayzie, and I don't usually like other female dogs. She's a pretty cool gal! She's always going on vacation or playing with her Brudder Ranger or having doggy friends over. But she gets along with cats. I don't like cats. We'd have to talk about that.
Oliver: I KNOW I'd like Mayzie, she makes me smile. I wonder if she'd marry me... I'd probably like cats. I like everyone. They would probably make me SMILE! I know I'd like Brudder Ranger, too.
