Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

April 1st 2006

Eating and playing! Or playing and eating...Wrestling. Leaning on his people. Watching Animal Planet, dog shows and nature specials.

Not being allowed on the couch in his new home. Having his nails trimmed.

Favorite Toy:
"Giant size" nylabones, tennis balls,frisbee. He loves to fetch.

Favorite Food:
Anything in front of his nose. He gets Wellness dry food and always wants more.He loves occasional vanilla ice cream and healthy dog biscuits.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere with Mom- the longer the better!

Best Tricks:
Being incredibly handsome and loving. He makes my heart melt!

Arrival Story:
I read about him on one of my rescue email lists. He had been living with a family in SC that allowed their young children to drag him by his ears and step on him. They fed him mac & cheese, which made him sick. When Trey, who was visiting, asked them to be nice to the puppy, the Mom replied they didn't want him & were taking him to a shelter, so it didn't matter. Trey took him to his Mom, Roxanne, (hurray!) thus saving his life. I volunteered to take him, thinking that he'll mesh with our current 2 dogs, a Boxer and a German Shepherd. Then I found out that the rescue transport I had already volunteered to do was leaving 7 miles from his rescuer's town- this little guy is supposed to be with us, I believe. He arrives on the transport tomorrow afternoon! Update: 3 years after he arrived as a poop-covered puppy, Chester has grown into a nearly 70 pound, extremely loving dog who makes me smile every day. Please adopt- for the animal's sake and yours!

I told our GSD, McKinley and Boxer, Honey (both spayed/neutered) that Chester would be their "love child". He sure looks like it.

Diary of a Big Dog

Pups, I haven't barked for so long!

It's Mom's fault, of course- I have been busy.

I had a great dog walker for a couple months, twice each week, and now Minnie and I have a FENCE! It is so cool to have a private dog park in my very own yard!

My dog walker was Sammy the Wonderful Man- I love him so much *sob*. Maybe he can still walk me sometimes...

Our fence is huge- all along the back yard, down into the woods and pretty secure. It's 5 feet tall and Minnie and I still haven't found a way out, dang it. I'll keep checking, not to worry.

Mom still walks Minnie sometimes, but says she can't control me. Geesh- just because I'm over 70 pounds now and can pull her across the street whenever I want...what a wimp.I hope all my students are well- academic kisses to you all.


No updates for a long time

I'm OK, but Mom went on a trip and then went into the hospital- she's slowly getting better. We (Minnie and I) got boarded at Pampered Pets for a while and are now back home. Love to you all- I'll post when I can.

Literally! After a super-strong wind knocked down lots of trees, we lost power for almost 5 days and one night during the current heatwave. No lights, no A/C- nothing. What's a dog to do? Minnie and I stayed close to Mom, pups.

The power is finally back and we are cool again- hurray!

Did you all have problems from the storm, students? How long did it take to get your power back?

Professor Chester, glad to be cool again
