Hi, so we both have dogs called Charlie (although mine is Charly). Charly became friends with an enormous black lab called Max who is a guide dog. We've now moved away from the area. We met Max when he was on holidays from his owner who was in hospital. A friend was looking after him. Max was the dopiest lab I've ever met and I have no idea how he was any help to his owner at all! LOL But I believe that once the harness goes on (or whatever work-cue the dog has) they do an awesome job. Your Charlie looks very sweet!
Love the pix of you and Charlie. I know and respect deeply the service dog etiquette, but I always want to hug and pet them. I hope I'll meet Charlie 12/11. I promise I will restrain my impulses!....Head home Tues on Amtrak....Oh and I want to hear about the tram ride! Haven't done it yet....
Thanks for the friend request. I was a chef/cook for most of my working life. Retired because of gastroparesis. I would vomit in stressful situations. Busy friday or not busy (andthe sort of stress that comes from the restaurant not being busy)
So delighted to get to know you and Doug, my friend! I'll talk to Manny and Andre and I'll get downtown to check out the little cafe we talked about. I will be back in Minnesota for the first time since my Mom died November 3-18, but get in touch before then anytime!!.....Judith

We really need to get all our Oregonians to befriend the Embassy Page. I keep recommending it when I greet newcomers.....
