Charles the dog caused a scare in a Norfolk, Va., neighborhood this week when residents and passers-by mistook him and his curly mane for a lion.
Charles, 3, appears to enjoy being the center of attention. He has his own Facebook page, full with pictures from puppyhood to adulthood. His bio gives the full name "Charles the Monarch" and describes him as a "party animal."
Now, that page is full of links to articles and appearances on television, thanks to the lion scare fiasco that has made him a national star.
