​Having a dog of a day, day 4

Today’s dog is Charlie. 

‘He is an eighteen month old Chihuahua cross Maltese who lives for fetch and swimming,” his mum Ashleigh said.

“His other pastimes include chasing goats and playing tag with Guinea Fowls , it's quite a sight to behold, I can tell you!

“Choosing a photo of him was so hard, he's extremely photogenic and loves to strike a pose (as you can see).

“He's absolutely amazing; loyal, loving, has enough energy to power a country, and just full of so many quirks,” she said.

“Couldn't ask for a better friend, he's simply the best.”

Do you think your pup is cuter?

Every day we will feature a dog of a day on our website and through social media.

In the final week of the promotion, the Katherine Times will invite readers to vote for their favourite so we can award our most loved hound a 2017 dog of the day certificate.
