A little romance

Charlie Machete has a crush.

Jack Russel Terrier + pomeranian = jackeranian

Her name is Roxy.

The little, 7-pound jackeranian is staying with us for a few days while her mama is out of town.

To the old dogs, she’s just a little chippy. As a married man, Luke wisely sets boundaries. He even gave Roxy a little growl so she knew not to invade his space on the first night.

Scooby is suspicious of anyone who could get in the way of his snuggles with mama.

Charlie Machete, however, can’t take his eyes – or his nose – off of Ms. Roxy.

There’s some longing in his gaze.

It’s sniff time.

The attraction is hardly one-sided. (But who could blame a girl for being intrigued by a handsome guy like Charlie Machete?)

Luke is bored by young love.

But Charlie Machete is a guy who can come on a little too strong at times. So, I gave him some romantic advice.

Don’t overwhelm the little girl.

Don’t get too fresh.

Play it cool.

Machete looks away from Roxy

“I’ll just head the other direction. Maybe she’ll follow.”

Because the last thing a young canine suitor wants is to be reprimanded by the Bad Dog Can in front of his crush.

Then again, maybe Roxy is one of those girls who like bad boys…

No snuggling on the first date.

“Do not look at the cute girl. Do not look at the cute girl.”

What do you think? Will my foster dog win little Roxy’s heart for the weekend?

Charlie Machete the lover is available for adoption through Midwest Adopt-a-Bull.
