In this installment of “New Canine-ites,” featuring profiles of local dogs, we speak to town resident Charlie Wilson about Marley, a 9-year-old black lab that the family has had since he was a puppy. Coming across Marley in Waveny, it was easy to see how calm and relaxed this lab is. “He’s gentle and never does something he’s not supposed to do,” Charlie said. “He’s nervous at first, but when Marley’s outside he is active and loves to run and swim.”
Acquired in January 2007 when Charlie was eight weeks old, Marley was a gift to the whole family. “Our family friend had 11 puppies on Christmas and we went to go look at one for us,” he said.
