on her favorite treats

Funny characteristics: Charlie likes to burrow and "hide" treats, she can be very stubborn, but she is generally quite well behaved. 


Misc stories about their past etc.: Charlie is generally well behaved and doesn't get into things or chew on shoes, etc. but one time I left a fresh pack of 30 Greenies out and she tore open the bag and hid them ALL OVER my apartment. I found them in corners, stuffed into corners of couches and chairs, and even under my pillow in bed (one of her favorite places to stash treats). I actually don't even think she ate any--just stashed them everywhere.
