Charlie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Charlie
Age: Fourteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Percheron
Home: Green Cove Springs, Florida, USA
 
   Well, I didn't choose Charlie, he chose me. I am in a wheelchair and when I was at the horse sale, I was sitting next to his stall. He leaned his head over his door to play with my hair. My dad thought he was bothering me and went to move me. Charlie grabbed the back of my chair with his mouth and would not let go. He never took his eyes off of me. Even when they brought him into the ring to sell him, he watched me. At one time he even dragged his handler across the ring to stand by me. This was a little scary because Charlie is 19 1/2 hands high. The top of my head barley came to the bottom of his stomach. His feet are the size of a dinner platter. We bought him and brought him home the next day.

    Charlie is so sweet. He even lets my four-year-old cousin swing on his tail like Tarzan. He is always very careful when he is around me. I love my Charlie Boy, he is a gentle giant in every way.
