Chester
Chester was a wonderful member of our family, he was always there to pull me out of the dumps when I had a tough week and together we enjoyed many a Saturday afternoon nap on our bed while pretending to watch football.

At 7:30 pm on April 26, 2004, Chester passed away at home. Glenda and I were with him as were his two favorite vets, Dr. Hairfield and Jackie.

 

 

Chester was an amazing dog loved by all who knew him. He was a frequent visitor at the vet where everyone loved to see him come.

He always announced himself with a bark that ended up hurting his ears, but no one could miss his entrance and the joy that he brought to the technicians who were always amazed that he pranced to the back for his shots without needing any encouragement.

We were fortunate to have Chester with us for almost twelve years in spite of his diabetes and other health problems, he had a great time, enjoying his favorite spot in the yard, guarding the last of the winter snow banks, rolling in the sand on Outerbanks, splashing in his kiddie pool and spending hours upon hours of exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains behind our house.

He was a Lab's Lab and even this morning at 4 am while sitting in the yard in the dark , he could manage a hello bark to a very surprised dog walker who tried to sneak up on his yard. Chester assumed everyone loved him and gave everyone his unnconditional love.

Chester was a wonderful member of our family, he was always there to pull me out of the dumps when I had a tough week and together we enjoyed many a Saturday afternoon nap on our bed while pretending to watch football. When we weren't doing that he was patiently taking a nap in the shade as I cleared the miles of trails that we enjoyed over his twelve years,

He will be missed by not only his human family but also by his two cat buddies who never missed a chance to rub against him.

Everyone should have a Chester in their life at some time.
