I Know What I Am Now….

Charlie Bear here.

Mom and Dad Peep were told I’m a Shih-Tzu and Terrier mix. That’s because I was found on the streets in Los Angeles spinning and acting like a brat (I still do that sometimes) and nobody really knew what I was.

Even I didn’t know. But I do now! So guess what I am?

I’m a Havanese.

That’s not a picture of me, though you would think it is, right? Mom Peep got that from a Havanese site.

This is me:

Charlie Bear May 2012 008

Mom and Dad were talking to someone who saw me for the first time and she instantly said that’s what I am.

But guess what? It’s not how I look on the outside, or even the title of what I am…it’s what’s on the inside that matters, don’t you think? I’m aristocratic, self-assured, filled with attitude, loving and loyal.

That’s what matters about YOU too. You can look like one thing or be labeled one thing, but if you have a good heart, a gentle spirit, are loving and kind, then you are a winner. And to me, you are always a winner.

Wiggles and Woofs,
Charlie Bear

    Hi Charlie! I thought you already knew what you are… A loveable dog friend to your peeps and us! Any excuse for more pictures is great though.

      I’ve always known I’m loveable…smirk smirk. Thanks for the comment and warmth.

    So, true, Charlie Bear. Just like a chocolate eclair, the best is inside!

      Oooooo…laaaaa…laaaa…yes, indeed the best is inside a chocolate eclair! Mom Peep breaks it open then licks the creamy goodness out of the middle. Oh, and she licks her fingers from the chocolate top as well.
      Woofs to you

    CB, yes, you do look a little like the pix. but more like me, The vet says I am a Shih-Tzu Terrier mix also but a lady at the vets office said I am a full blooded Shih-Tzu cause Terrier mixes had a lot of curly hair on their back near the tail and I don’t have that at all, so now I am wondering if you and I are more than “Kissing Cousins”? Well it don’t matter anyway what we are as long as our Peeps think we are good enough to keep.
    Wiggles & wags,

      We are certainly good enough for our peeps to keep. And I’m keeping them too cause they are really good to me. I really don’t care what I am but Mom Peep always had a hard time saying Shih-Tzu. Something about the first word with the T from the second word. lol
      Wiggles to you,

    CB, I love this post! And I agree with every word. You look like the dog who lives next door to me. A Havanese!!!! Which hasn’t gone to your head, not in the least.

    You’re still the same adorable, confident, loving dog as always. 🙂


    • 8. bjtaylorblog  |  April 28, 2014 at 7:23 pm

      Yes, I’m adorable. sigh And also confident. Sigh again. But loving? Extra big sigh. I love my Peeps so much!
      Wiggles to you,

    Havanese or whatever, he’s Charlie Bear and adorable! Great blog, BJ, you’re right about what’s inside that counts. I do miss you, MUCH.
    Love & hugs

      Mom Peep says THANK FOR for the kind words, and so do I. I’m learning to accept myself just like I am, even when I do my spinning and growling and snapping. Hey, it happens!
      P.S. She misses you 2!
      Wiggles and woofs,
      Charlie Bear
