My New Boyfriend

I have a new boyfriend. He is about 3 years old, a redhead and is totally devoted to me.  DMP doesn’t mind much- he has his own boyfriend (Ollie the cat).

My bofriend’s name is Chester:


I can (and have) heard the collective groan from my parents and sisters- as a family we haven’t had much luck with doggies.  However, Chester is super-mellow, already potty trained (really!) and loves the girls, DMP and, most of all, me. 

Chester is a long-haired chihuahua but he isn’t yappy (we’ve hardly heard him”talk”) or jumpy. Really all he is interested in is a warm lap to snuggle on.  We feel pretty lucky he has joined our family. Cross your fingers that he doesn’t develop any “issues” as he gets more used to our family.


EJ is just over the moon about having her own dog. She is kind of disappointed that he doesn’t know any “tricks” (yet) like “sit” or “play dead”.  She has this to say about him:

I love Chester. He likes his tummy rubbed and he loves to follow Mommy and me. And he loves, sort of his drink and his food really really much. Right now he is licking his paw.  I love Chester!

Birdy loves that she has someone smaller than her to scold and the first thing she has said every morning since we got him is “I luff my puppy”. She thinks his name is Chihuahua.

Here is one more pic for the road- isn’t he cute and totally not naked buggy-eyed Chihuahua-like?
