Chester - shown front & center in the picture with me, along with Dakota (springer spaniel cross), Jewel (African Grey Parrot) and Sweetie (Budgie) is a rescue. I was lucky enough to get him home with me when he was still young ( 7 1/2 months), after he spent his first 6 months ignored by the people who brought him home at just 5 weeks of age.

Burr Season

Posted on September 14, 2007 at 6:01pm 5 Comments

This could almost be burrrr (as in cold) season, since we're getting pretty close to frost some nights now, but I am referring to those sharp, prickly, sticky, messy burrs that get into the feathering of our beautiful dogs.

Chester happened to find a whole bunch of burrs on our run at the dog park today. He got some little black sticky ones - some small sharp, prickly green ones - and some big, brown sharp,prickly ones. A real nice combination of messy stuff.

Chester loves to…


Chester had a swim!

Unlike some of the Irish Setters here, Chester does not appreciate water. He loves playing in mud, but will walk around a puddle of water every time. Well, today at the dog park, he ended up in the river. I didn't see what happened, so I don't know for sure how he got in there, but I think he must have fallen in as he was running along the riverbank. Its possible that another dog was running with him or towards him and he zigged instead of zagged - LOL.

Anyway, after I heard a splash,…


Walking the Dogs

When Chester first arrived here, he was the 3rd dog in and at that point, taking the dogs for a walk was very difficult. I could drive them to the off-leash dog park and let them run, but 3 large dogs in the back of my little car means little fights would often occur in the crowded back seat. So, luckily I have a large back yard and they would put quite a few miles racing around. Unfortunately, Chester never did learn to walk on leash this way though.

This year, we were down to 2 dogs…

Hello Mavis, Australia calling!
I see you are from California. My Aunt moved out there from England, many,many years ago, and we visited her and the family in San Fransisco.
My cousins are still there, and my Uncle, but my Aunt died quite a number of years ago now.
Perhaps I will get back over there some day.

Canada - wonderful. Looks a beautiful place. I have always wanted to get there and to Alaska.
You are always welcome to stay, if you ever get to Western Australia.We are in the hills. Very pretty with plenty of trees. Of course we have our famous wine area south of Perth too. Well worth a visit!.

Hi Mavis - yes the joys of using a halti it is the only way I can road walk mine together! However - they still took me across the road one day when they went after a pheasant that ran across the road infront of them - they went up and over the bank but I didn't and was pinned to the bank still hanging onto my flexis - glad no cars came around the corner to see the spectacle!!!
Enjoy your walks
love RO
