Blackie (AKA Charleston) BRLA Nov. Run

HI Jennifer,
Just wanted to give you an update on Blackie.  He is an absolute lovebug, with the most kissable face and the gentlest disposition.  The girls adore him and he is fabulous with them.
We're still working on the housebreaking, but he is learning to sit on command now for his dinner.  Unfortunately, he has been having health problems, and is scheduled for surgery on his toe on Tuesday.  He came to us with an ear infection and another infection and mangled nailbed on his toe (the one where his toenail had to be extracted).  The bone seems to be ok on the xray, so they won't have to amputate his toe, just remove the nailbed part.  His ears are better now, but his toe is terribly swollen and he limps when he walks.  Other than that, he seems content and is learning that we are his family now.
Here are some pictures that show how much he is loved.  I'll keep you posted on his progress.
