Charlie Gears Up for The Insider’s 1st Birthday

Charlie’s Corner is the domain of Charlie, the furry four-legged lady’s man of Market Common. Each month, he’ll share information to help all new, visiting, and existing doggie community members get the most out of life alongside their human companions. We’ll feature his reflections on what it’s like to be a dashing downtown doggie, as he reminds all of us how to play well together. This month, Charlie celebrates the Insider’s first birthday and goes for an enjoyable walk.

June is such a beautiful, tranquil month and it marks the birthday of our Insider publication! Happy Birthday Insider!

This occasion calls for some cake and some extra special doggie treats. One year ago we began our paper, and yours truly became a famous author as well as a stunner with the ladies. In addition to this excitement and the sizable accomplishments of our local publication, June is such a joyous time to be a doggie.

The Myrtle Beach deep warmth is firmly established and it’s not quite yet the heat and excitement of summer. With all the flurry of activity happening with the birthday celebrations happening at the Insider offices of late, (and to keep me away from the cake until the appropriate moment), my thoughtful people booked me for a walk with Cindy Bright of Einstein’s Dog-Sitting Service.

I love new experiences and I’ve never had a walk with Cindy before. I trotted along at her side and enjoyed all the sights and smells on DeVille Street— like the snapdragons.

If I let my imagination run away, I can picture them coming to life and roaring at me from their long, lanky stems. Cindy was very patient with me as I stopped to investigate some other interesting scents that caught my nose and examine more closely the insects I saw crawling through the mulch— it’s just fascinating how they move.

Back on my own, I visited the press rooms at the Insider to see what goodies are being broadcasted this very special anniversary month. I’m heartened to see all the coverage about food and festivals. Two of my favorite things to do— eat and be adored by throngs of people. What a fun edition and a fun way to celebrate our 1 year milestone.

And one of the festivals covered is Festa Italiana, one of my favorites. I couldn’t agree more with that vegetarian sausage lover, (except that he’s a vegetarian the rest of the time); I love those Jersey sausages too, and look forward to eating one every year.

As I paw through the rest of the edition, I’m happy to see the new lineup for Movies Under the Stars— truly something to look forward to. I have so much fun at this event. My family spreads a cozy blanket over the lawn, and I curl up on loving laps, while enjoying an occasional treat, and of course, the movie. 

I just love our Market Common community and am so pleased and proud to have been offering the latest on-dits and commentary to you all for the past year. To all my fans and followers, my doggie heartfelt thanks for your support and your love.

Until next time,
