RIP handsome Chester who was adopted in 2012 after he was found as a stray with a badly injured foot. At the time we felt that he may have been caught in a trap and chewed his leg to free himself. Despite this tragic incident, Chester was a sweet, loving boy and will be greatly missed by his family.
Just over four years ago I submitted an application for a rescue collie. I asked for a young female. The Collie Rescue instead sends me a picture of a five year old male. LOL. I fell instantly in love. Such a classic collie. Charlie was my fifth collie and he was the funniest dog I ever had. LOVED his toys, constantly protected us from the vacuum, the mail truck and all things on wheels. This past February he was diagnosed with liver cancer and was given one to two months to live. This brave boy made it until today. HUGE HUGE hole in my heart and our house but so blessed to have had him in our lives. He was the first collie that Joe let come into his office (aka Man Cave), LOL. He had a fan club with the neighborhood little girls and they came over today to read him the book Dog Heaven before he passed. Run free Mister Charlie.
