There's something about Charlie
Published 13/06/14



HERE are two more entries for Henley’s Top Dog 2014 — and they’re both Charlies!

You may have seen Charlie the golden labrador around Henley.

Beth Cutting, who entered him for the competition, says: “Charlie belongs to double silver Olympic medallist Debbie Flood, captain of Leander.

“He is delightfully loyal but also decidedly stubborn. In fact, Charlie is gaining a reputation for taking matters into his own hands by, for example:

• Pulling a chair home from Malmaison as he decided he didn’t want to be tied up

• Causing traffic jams outside Waitrose by sneaking off his lead and refusing to move off the zebra crossing.

• Blocking the towpath with a 2m stick, dragging it through town, causing pedestrians to dodge out of the way.

• Gaining a reputation as a potential rowing cox. Charlie attempted to swim out to join Debbie rowing but had to be dragged into the cox position when he couldn’t swim back.

“Charlie’s loyalty knows no bounds as he faithfully follows Debbie as she rows.

“However, his stubbornness also knows no bounds and if you see him walking himself through town, there’s no need to panic. You’ll know he has taken matters into his own hands and will soon be heading home.”

Charlie the Jack Russell is nine and belongs to 10-year-old Ellie Webb, from Hambleden.

Ellie says: “Charlie and I are best friends and he always likes to be with me. Playing with the ball is his best game!

“I think Charlie should win Top Dog because he is the best dog ever! He always looks after me, even when I am ill.

“Here he is on the sofa with his cheeky face.”
