#LifeofCharlieDoggy: See a Rescue Pup's Point of View

A local rescue dog is showing us the world from his point of view thanks to a clever camera setup.

Aaron Talasnik adopted Charlie from the Delaware County SPCA in November 2014 and has been sharing the journey – including Charlie's first-ever exposure to snow – on social media ever since. 

"My Instagram feed has been filled with pictures of Charlie since he became a part of my family, but I was curious about what it would look like from his perspective," Charlie's owner said. "Sometimes it is good to get another view on things and I already had the GoPro so figured why not give it a try." 

Charlie has recorded his point of view at Freedom Park in Medford, New Jersey. while swimming, running and playing with other dogs.

The Delco SPCA brought Charlie to the shelter after he was found as a stray in the Atlanta suburbs. Talasnik said it was very important for his dog to come from a shelter.

"I just feel like there are so many dogs out there that need love and attention," he said. "Finding one that fit me from a shelter is something I felt was the right thing to do."
