First meeting with Charlie at my friend's house
One of my friends saw someone push little Charlie out of a moving vehicle (SERIOUSLY, WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?). He pulled over and scooped up this little Beagle/Pug (aka Puggle) mix, and took him to the vet and got him checked out.

Then my friend put Charlie up on Facebook, and asked if anyone could give him a home. My friend already has a dog and a new baby, and can't really take in any additional pets.
I didn't hesitate. I saw Charlie bright and early this morning (instead of staying home and doing the FOTD). He ran right up to me, tail just wagging all over the place, and got right in my face! I gave him a big hug and we took him home.

It looks like Charlie is home.
So I ended this year by pouring a little love over a darling little dog, who is now part of our little family.
I couldn't have asked for a better blessing.
