SIR CHARLES BARKLEY KANTOR
My name is Sir Charles Barkley Kantor, but everyone calls me Charlie for short. I live with my paw-rents, Alex and Eva, in Matthews and love coming to the office every day. I am growing like crazy, so don't be alarmed if I get much bigger before we meet! I love to get into all my co-workers' purses and especially love when the team gets down on the ground with me and plays!
