About a year ago, Hannah met a little, scared pup only known as Animal ID#A482508. She was picked up as a stray by animal control outside of Seattle. She was so scared to leave the shelter that she peed on the floor as they walked her out (something she’s never done since). Hannah brought this nervous, little, shaven-bellied girl home, not really knowing what to expect.In the past year, Charlotte has accompanied her forever mom (by plane, train, bus, subway, ferry, and bike) almost wherever she goes: across the country, into too many public restrooms, into professors’ offices, and pretty much everywhere else.In her first months at home, she was only willing to climb into her grandpa’s lap if he coaxed her with pickles. Now, she is a bright, sweet, goofy, loving dog who makes friends everywhere she goes and won’t hesitate to greet a stranger! She recently made friends with an elderly dog whose owners believed he could never make a dog friend. She has made a dog-lover (or at least Charlotte-lover) out of a girl who used to be terrified to see a dog on the street. She snuggles when it’s cold and gets her mom out of bed in the morning with her silly antics.
Charlotte amazes her mom every single day, and she’s so thankful to have given her a forever home.

It’s #finallyfriday and here, that means dog park day. Honestly, I’m pretty mature now, and I couldn’t quite keep up with the antics of the puppies there this evening. Puppies these days 🙄 They’re probably home now sniffing their iPads and snapchatting each other pictures of where they pooped in the house. #soimmature #sooverit ✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴ #badtagsmodelsearch Go follow my partners: @wonderfulworldofollieandlucas @ring_around_miss_rosie @the.traveling.terrier @arabella_the_husky_mix
#waybackwednesday to when we travelled all the way to Dog Mountain so that I could get in some practice being a statue. I assume there’ll be a statue of me on this pedestal when I return.

Happy Easter, frens! (I know Luna is not the Easter bunny but she does usually bring me stuffs like yogurt containers and parts of dead birds, so I think she counts.) ✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴ #krisersspringfling Go follow my partners: @wonderfulworldofollieandlucas @ring_around_miss_rosie @the.traveling.terrier

Doggos of America, I has got to tell you something. There is a thing that is happening called the “Saint Patrick’s Day.” Maybe your human is saying “oh it is so fun a thing that all will enjoy.” Do not listen. The “Saint Patrick’s Day” is a thing when you are just walkin down the sidewalk sniffin a tree and then there is lots of loud and stinky people coming to you. Some is also wearing the scary monster costume or maybe there is also scary monsters. The stinky people is screaming and trying to touch you and then there is some sound of drums and loud toots and you is afraid but you must go past all the scary things to get home. I do not enjoy. “Saint Patrick’s Day” is not a good thing for doggos. Love, Charlotte. #importantinfo #tellyourfriends #nothankyou ✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴ Go check out my friends @wonderfulworldofollieandlucas and @ring_around_miss_rosie
