Lounging Chara

When we first got Chara, almost a year ago now, we pressed through all the hard puppy stuff with dreams of her one day becoming a beautiful, luxurious, lounging golden retriever.

The day has come. :)

While she still has her moments of insanity, a few times a day, the majority of the day she is lounging and ready to snuggle. :)

Since it has been so cold in China we have started letting Chara get on our bed to snuggle.
Not the whole night but only if we are reading.
And don't worry, Zachary has strict rules for her.

She can not get on the bed, unless summoned and she can't bring any of her chew toys on the bed.

 She is very good about listening to these rules.
(We can completely see who's going to be the rule setter in our house! I am terrible at this, which is why Daddy has to sometimes tell Chara, with a stern look and a point, what Mommy is trying to tell her to do.)

She, very preciously, sets her head on the bed everyday, waiting for us to call her up.

My favorite time with her is in the mornings.
Zachary gets up at 6 and takes her out. When they come back, its our new routine that she comes and snuggles with me for 30 minutes until I get up. :) I just love it! She helps me wake up in a good mood.

As you can see Chara's getting a little too comfortable on our bed. :)
She's huge, right!?
She's sleeping like a baby. :)

She sure has grown!
Check out this old picture of her.
So cute. :)
