 Raffle of Oil Painting of Charley

4R will be selling Raffle Tickets starting in September to win a grand prize of an original Oil Painting of Charley, the 4R Mascott.
He is 46 years old and going strong.  Charley has had a hard life, but he still is active and loves his friend Lilly.  He is seldom not beside her.

 Charley has had one eye damaged before we rescued him and he is blind on that side.  Did I not say he was still active?
Don't let his small size fool you. Charley is going strong.
