Brewster really laid it on thick this morning when I was on the way out the door to go to a private session. He won himself a car ride with his sweet brown eyes. Mid session I took a break and took him for a little walk. Do you know where?

Some of my fondest earliest childhood memories are of Sunday drives with my parents. My family owned a retail business and everyone worked hard, but my Dad always found the energy for our drives.
Sometimes we just went for a ride, and other times we went "somewhere".
Today I packed up the kids, a few of their freinds, plus Charlee and we took a Sunday drive to the location above.
The kids were not quite as enthusiastic as I was but they did like it.
You still have two more weekends to go and check it out.

Drive North of Portland and down the lane.
Hoof it over there by the end of the month before the exhibit is over.
Where's Charlee # 10 is dedicated to my cousin in Florida who misses good Maine seafood.

Today Where's Charlee photos were taken when I met my parents for lunch to pick up my middle daughter who had been visiting them all week.
Good food, good company, and good dogs!
We were not the only folks with dogs having lunch (mmm by the way!) and I took this picture of two labs I met, Roan and Luna.
The little girl was just walking by, but she sure is cute.

After dinner we went to this Portland location so Finney could play with a few dogs. He made some new friends, but all the dogs were running fast and unfortunately most of my pictures came out blurry because it was starting to get dark. Charlee was happy to have Finney around, because he brings the good treats for training recalls. Tonight's recalls were in competition with a local running group and I am happy to report that my new puppy came every time I called him and wasn't really interested in the joggers. I am right now pondering the almost certain fact that if we had seen only a few people, he would have found them interesting and followed them at least to say hi, but 50 joggers, nope, other dogs are much better.
hint-Those of us with mud puppies will not go here during mud season because of the swamp of lost tennis balls located directly behind Charlee.

Today's Where's Charlee is the easiest one ever!
We have had a really fun week swimming, and exploring here, while picking up and dropping off at summer camp.
Many people don't realize that while this is not an officially designated off leash area, there is no leash law in effect either. I find this a bit surprising because of the high volume of visitors.
Please if your dog is not polite, if your dog jumps on people or bolts, don't let your dog off leash here , just because you can.
Please don't ruin it for the rest of us.
I think one of the reasons off leash dogs are allowed here is due to the close proximity of oil tankers. This doesn't bother this former city girl who was used to beaching it 2ooo feet away from Logan airport.
This morning I took the three kids, and three dogs (Charlee, Finney and Sophia, our guest) to this mystery location so the dogs could run and cool off (and mess up my new car). The first person to correctly identify this location via a comment in the comment section will win a Maine Today.com Frisbee.
(hey Dad I was only kidding about the car, we used lots of towels and blankets!)
Lots of people have written asking how Charlee is doing since nearly dying as a result of going out the window in my car accident last month. She is not 100 %, but she is very close and doing really well. From all accounts she has made an astounding recovery with the help of lots of love, a very special diet and great medical care.
Tune in later today for the return of Where's Charlee and to have a chance to win one of the few remaining Maine Today Frisbee's that Finnegan hasn't found and nibbled.

Here is a hint:
She is still there...
The rain finally let up yesterday and we took a quick trip to the beach.
Do you know which one?

I have opted not to take my new camera out in the rain, so instead I thought we could change the rules for contest number three, while at the same time provide a bit of a diversion from all this foul weather.
The winner will receive a Maine.today.com Frisbee and please include your email address so I can contact you for a mailing address.
Contest #3's winner will be awarded to the most clever "Where's Charlee" answer, and not the first person to post.
