Boogie Blogging Friday Featuring Chester

Friday, August 14, 2009
This is Chester. He was recently adopted by our neighbors from a puppy rescue organization, and is three months old. "Chester" is short for "Manchester," the favorite soccer team of one of the neighbor boys.

His family thinks he's a Burmese Mountain Dog mix, and it's a pretty safe bet he's going to be a big boy, although he's all legs and paws at the moment. Getting him to hold still long enough for me to take a photo was a bit of a challenge, as he's quite the little wiggle-worm.

Chester's favorite activity is to sit on his deck and look at Boogie, which drives Boogie crazy. Chester doesn't respond to his barking, and only wags and carries on when there's a person to engage with. So Boogie has apparently determined it's his new mission in life to school this youngster.

I like Chester, but not enough to consider getting another dog. Boogie's quite sufficient.

He looks a lot like Schultz except for the ears...I have pix of Schultz as a pup somewhere..

That might be one of the reasons I'm so fond of him. He's a very sweet boy.
