Bio: An all-around athlete and world traveler, Charlie was a man of many names - among his favorites were "Chuck," "Monkey," "Money," and "Bear" - often two were combined to form an additional alias (e.g. "Bear" + "Money" = "B. Money"). Having acquired Chuck at a time in life when I rarely sat still (or lived in one place for more than the duration of the annual lease), Charlie experienced a life most dogs only dream of. He swam the rivers and lakes, and hiked the hills of Virginia, West Virginia, Colorado, and Georgia; and swam the beaches of Hatteras, North Carolina and Lake Michigan, Illinois. A unique creature indeed. This portfolio of photography (click on image to the left), captured between 2006 and 2013, offers a glimpse at a handful of cherished moments in Charlie's life.
