New Dog

October 6, 2015 by Pauline Pauline Micciche Micciche (Register to contact)

Dick and I have a new dog. Charlie after the comic strip character Charlie Brown. He'is a giant Pomeranian at 16 pounds. Poms in the show ring run 4-6 pounds and his size is a probably throwback to the Spitz his ancesters were bred from. We got him from a rescue so no registration papers. He's 8 years old andlikes walks, rides in the car, being brushed, running, and snuggling. Quite a change from the Boxers I'm used to. .
