Smile Chester's Story

Well this is our big boys journal. When we first saw the picture of Chester we knew he was going to be somehow - "feisty". Then a only a few weeks later, we visited the breeders house to make the decision of whether to get Chester, the long-legged, adorable, shy, big, six-week old Chester, or his little brother Hershey, a chocolate fluff-ball. After about two hours, the choice was still undecided, until we chose the Sir Big Eyes Chester to bring home on June 4rth.
On June 4rth, the day that we couldn't wait for, we finally picked up this big boy Chester.

The first night was rough and pottytraining wasn't going so well. But we weren't going to give up. Only two weeks after we brought our pup, he broke his leg. But he did surprisingly well with it, still running 40 mph and acting his usual self.

Time flew by and Chester had his cast off in no time. By now, Chester was excelling in pottytraining, cratetraining and just learning tricks.
After vacation Chester grew HUGE and got his first trim.
Now he is the love of our lives, our big teddy bear.

Good news:
1. Lately Chester has been scratching/whining at the back door to go potty.
2. He is finally having interest in his pig's ear he hadn't touched for ages.
Yay, go Chester!!

Wow that's great work Ruth - you've done really well with his potty training. . At least Charlie goes to the door now. But if we get distracted and don't notice ......... Whoops there's a puddle.

Unhappy Sore paw

We found Chester constantly licking his paw today, and I remember reading "Dogs usually lick/favor their paw if it is hurt", soooo I looked at his foot. It was red and swollen.:exclamation: I remember my mom took him on a walk today...the rough pavement must've rubbed or scraped his paw pad. This there anything I can do to make his paw feel better?BTW, he can't get any food after 7:00 p.m. because he is getting neutered tomorrow morning.

Ruth,
I love the Chester story You are too cute.

I am sorry Chester appears to have hurt his paw. I have used neosporin in the past. I hope he does ok with his neuter. xoxo
