Charlotte's Story

Charlotte’s Story

Charlotte was a free spirit. She was boldness, she was curiosity, she was passionate, she was love. On any day you could see Charlotte applying all these virtues, particularly when it involved dogs. A normal 20-minute walk would take 40 minutes with Charlotte. She boldly stopped each dog walker, to pet, ask questions and love every dog along the way. Charlotte understood that dogs were special. At around 2 years old, Charlotte announced that she wanted to be a “Doggy Doctor” or for everyone else a veterinarian. She loved the twice-yearly “Doggie Doctor” visits with her yellow lab, Lily. Her curiosity was never ending and her passion endearing. Charlotte has left a void in so many hearts. We strive to honor Charlotte and things she loved.


Charlotte and her passion for Lily, and her extensive stuffed dog collection will be honored in a soon to be released picture book; Good Dogs, Great Listeners ­ The Story of Charlotte, Lily and the Litter by Renata Bowers with JoAnn and Joel Bacon—pictures by Michael Chesworth. Stay tuned for more.
