Without a doubt, the passing of Twister left a big void in our hearts and in our team, and our daughter Kristin and her husband Juan José (aka, Chamby) knew how difficult it had been for us to let him go, so they decided to give us Charlie as a gift.

Although no one can replace Twister as far as I am concerned, Charlie has proven to be a great addition to our team. Unlike Baron who, to this day, remains restless in the back seat every time we hit the road, Charlie is simply a dream. She loves to sit between us and snuggles next to Soylamar while we drive.

With her size and a few “quirks” under her belt, I doubt Charlie will be up to any hikes or steep climbs, but she more than makes up for it with her loving nature. So welcome to the team, Charlie. You are a keeper!
