Tired puppy in need of consolation after rough first nights with Officer Rusby

Charlie could not be coaxed to smile, so we determined it was better that I mirror his current emotional state.

We think there will be better days ahead, for Charlie.

Charlie had just spent his first two nights at Officer Tyler Rusby’s house and sleep had not been on his personal agenda.

Charlie determined that while the love he had been receiving was “almost adequate,” he still missed his mother and vocalized his displeasure with his comfortable crate (and high-end fuzzy blanket) through six hours of high-pitched crying.

Rusby, being a genius- and looking much like Charlie due to lack of shut-eye- brought Charlie to the station in order keep him awake in any way possible.

Rusby hoped for a little more rest last night, but I have not been informed of his progress in pursuit of his dream (state).

Charlie confided in me that one of his issues was that while his mother always referred to him as “Charles,” the Rusby’s had confused him, slightly, by calling him Charlie.

Still, it’s a good morning for a UPP (Unsolicited Puppy Photo).

We will feature Charles, again, when he gets this all figured out.

Still, any UPP can make a day a little better.

Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.

As an answer to the writer of a recent note, inquiring why I do not wear a “smart-watch,” I am still not convinced of the need to be ridiculed by something that needs to be charged every night. I have found that the phone on my desk comes with a steady supply of ridicule from various members of society who require no charger at all.

We will be here.
