Our dogs

Chance, our new addition

On September 15th, 2019 we acquired our newest addition, an eight week-old English shepherd sister for Chester. Chance (we are taking one) is a lovely girl who, when she’s not getting her puppy fire out of her is a laid back dog much like Chester. It took Chester a week to acknowledge her but now the two play like fiends. She was one of a litter of eight born in Slippery Rock, Pa. We forgot what is was like to raise a puppy (like having another child), but we are looking forward to many happy years with her. Stop by and see her.

On Saturday, April 29, Chester passed his therapy dog test. And we might add with flying colors. We are hoping to take him for visits to nursing homes, etc.

Chester looks rather handsome and distinguished in his new therapy dog vest.

Goodbye Molly

With heavy heart we had to say good bye to Molly at the beginning of April (2014). For some unknown reason she and Chester got into some ferocious fights. After going six months without one, they had two within a week’s time. We weren’t sure what precipitated them because for the most part they got along fine. After much searching, we finally found a former colleague of Sandy’s whose father had recently lost a dog, and he was happy to take her. Although we miss her dearly and wish she could still be with us, we know she has a good home and will have a happy life.
