Chester is five today!

Post by Donald »

It's been a year of ups and downs for him. He as finally settled down a bit and my mother's Westie no longer feels the need to attack him on sight. So he's spent quite a lot of time out in the wilds with Corrie the Westie for company.

Since I stripped a huge amount of undercoat out of him, he hasn't been overheating as much and as a result hasn't been nearly as much of a Swamp Thing and only occasionally lives up to his nickname these days.

He lost his sister, Dieta at the end of November and he has been a bit lost since. He now comes to work with me every day and sits in the car till I get a break and can take him out. Fortunately it is winter so there's no problem with leaving him in the car.


Last year's birthday. viewtopic.php?f=31&t=21779.

Pics to follow when I get them uploaded - problem is I am also uploading a 3 gigabyte video to YouTube on a very slow connection just now.

Just at the moment, I'm not intending to get one soon. But nearly did inquire about a giant/standard poodle mix which was 42kg at 8 months old...

Here are the promised pics.

In the new raw food shop in town. They also do an excellent line in treats. He loves that shop.

Donald. Hope he had a happy birthday...I think you should add a mini schnauzer to your home..you love the breed and the minis are huge personalities that will cope with a giant ,s persona.
I've loved my big dogs,and still have a four yr old ST poodle boy...we thought to add another St poodle girl when my last st girl died,but decided on a mini schnauzer...we were so please she more than coped with the big dog..in fact it is she who rules the roost here.the great thing is she takes less time to groom,is easy to pick up and take anywhere and yet has all the attributes of a big dog.
