Charlie meets and greets customers of the Ten Bells, one of the oldest pubs here in Norwich. Only if you pass muster, will he let you come in. While you're drinking, he takes up sentry in front of the pub's log-burning stove, ears cocked for the arrival of new customers awaiting his inspection.

Anne-Marie, So nice to see a posting by you my very good friend, and i'm honored to be first to comment.
Love the title for this precious image. Makes me feel warm on this chilly evening. He looks very content laying in front of that fire. You know this reminds me of those xmas cards with the animals in front of the fireplace. =^..^= Tigglette ♪

Now that is one precious photo. So warm and inviting. I love how you got the glow of the fire and the way the doggie has his head turned as tho he is listening to everything that's going on. Very nicely done. Verena

Hi Anne-Marie! What a cosy image... a small watchdog basking in the toasty warmth of wood-burning stove! In a pub! if I was there I'd probably join him... ;-)

Great to see you Ann-Marie and I'm sorry I'm so late. Work has been a nightmare. I love the title of this, I was wondering what the heck a firedog might be! Like your narrative too, you brought the place to life. Perhaps we could go and visit him when I come to see you in Norwich - I'm still intending to do that before too much longer!

Hi All, if you see my initials on you latest upload you will know that I have had a good look at your photo, but at the moment, I'm getting over 200 friends a day, and I just cant keep up with you all, sorry, but I will look, but at times I wont be able to make many comments....No trees were killed in the sending of this message. However, a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

So adorable and looks like he loves sitting by the fireplace. My Katia was a greeter at the door also, I called her my Wal Mart Greeter.
