You might’ve seen me before around the baseball diamond or happened to catch me at a VA or something, and if not, I’ll just introduce myself: my name is Charlie. I’m a vet dog!
I’ll make this quick, though, as I’m soooooo busy. Like, I had to keep it short with TODAY on an interview about the kind of stuff I do. Let me tell you — I get to visit baseball stadiums. BASEBALL. STADIUMS!
Have you ever seen that much grass? It’s like freakin’ Disney World for dogs.
I got to hang with the Chicago Cubs as you see here, plus I’ve been at the Big Apple (why do they call it the “big apple”? I didn’t see any apples there!) and schmoozed with the Mets. I even delivered the game ball at Citi Field in New York as well as presented a coin to the veteran of the game, Mr. Staff Sft. Tom Harrington.
That’s not why I’m writing this, though (even though it’s cool that I get to see so much grass and meet really cool vets from all over). No. The real reason I’m writing is because it was recently I turned one, and apparently everyone’s cheering me on. Even Jim Lovell, the guy who flew Apollo 13 to the moon — yeah, that guy! — I got to meet him and had the privilege of wagging my tail for him.
Being a vet dog is fun. And an honor. And thank you for all the birthday wishes. And for the bones. You’ll be seeing me around some more…. I wonder if I can get to the moon….
