Throwback Thursday – Charlie-Barkin

Meet Charlie-Barkin. The star of this week’s Throwback Thursday.

Friend of Buddies Charlie-Barkin (CB) is a 6-year-old Golden Retriever.

CB has been with his family since he was just 8 weeks old, and at the time, was smaller than mum Jax’s cats.

‘CB is from a breeder near Mansfield, Kelvinlaird. Charlie’s pedigree name is Stanage Pride. All of the puppies in the litter were named after famous Peak District landmarks (Stanage Ridge is Charlie’s).’, says Jax.

CB is the best friend of office og Elvis and they love playing chase together.

‘CB is ball obsessed but is very particular. It must be a ‘Cyber Squeakie’ – slightly larger rubber balls that come in orange or green and have a super loud squeak. He can’t chase the ball too much now as he’s got arthritis, but he still loves to carry it everywhere.’

‘He loves swimming in the sea and playing in the snow, trips to Cornwall are his favourite time of year where he stays at ‘Bed and Basket’.’, adds Jax.

CB is a super friendly people dog, who is always smiling!

We are always on the lookout for #FriendsOfBuddies to feature in our posts. If you have a dog or cat, and would like to share their throwback photos, please email Becks @ Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
