Hello and welcome to my website.
My name is Charlie ( AKA Bitcon Artist) and I am a blue roan cocker spaniel.
A Blog From My Dog started as a bit of fun, as my friend Buster looked at the world from his end of the lead.
He started to record his adventures online in early 2007.
Sadly Buster died in late 2013 and I picked up the stick and am now in charge
The website has also changed many times to accommodate all of our adventures.
You can read all about the technical aspects of how we built this website here.
Charlie – I am a blue roan cocker spaniel and my Kennel Club registered name is Bitcon Artist.
I was born in 2007 and joined the family as an 8 week old pup. Mum said she chose me because I was the most inquisitive of the litter.
Like many spaniels, I have a natural in-built water detector and can find a stream or river almost anywhere.
Being a cocker I am as mad as a box of frogs but very loyal to my humans.
My paws are enormous and dad says they always smell comforting.
Dad has nick-named me ‘five sniffs’ due to the anaesthetic qualities I seem to give off. One of my tricks is to snuggle up when mum or dad are on the sofa and within minutes they will be asleep.
Carrots have always featured highly in my top ten of vegetables. I must eat hundreds of them in a year.
In winter, carrots make way for Brussel sprouts. Nothing quite beats a straight from the fridge sprout to get your teeth into.
Buster – He was a Wheaton, Scotty, Yorkshire terrier cross. He often thought of himself as a special dog, possibly a ‘Worksky’.
Buster joined the family at about 18 weeks old, as a rescue dog and soon learned that living with humans can be good fun.
For many years he was thought of as a very big Yorkshire Terrier, and even had a non Kennel Club “pedigree certificate” to prove it. However, after vet tests carried out as a result of a claggy eye problem, she discovered he was in part, a Scotty dog.
Fireworks used to scare him as did small ladies with thick dark rimmed glasses.
Buster was also registered as a Pets as Therapy member and had a medal on his collar to prove it.
