    Chester, the ever faithful. 2007-2018.

    Today I said goodbye to the goodest boy ever, my sweet Chester.

    The best bud a girl could have asked for, the best big "brother" to Eva, the best grand-dog to my parents, and an overall joy to all those who knew him.

    After a diagnoses of a very aggressive and already metastasized cancer, he spent the last week being petted and loved and enjoying his favorite foods. This morning, on a soft blanket under the shade of the backyard tree and to the sounds of birds and wind, he passed from this life with the assistance of a hospice veterinarian.

    Chester will be forever in my heart and in my soul. I love you buddy.

    I'm so sorry, Shell.

    He was a good boy and he had a great life with you. I could tell from your posts that you loved him very much.

    My heart is so broken for you. Chester was a very special dog and I've so enjoyed watching him through DF over the many years. Keep those memories close.

    Oh no, I'm so sorry. He was clearly an amazing dog and you gave him an awesome life. Hard to imagine DF without him around.

    Thank you all for your kind words. He would have loved to have been able to meet all y'all in person because that's just the kinda dog he was. Not a lap dog, not a cuddle bug but just one whose very nature encouraged people, kids and adults both, to reach out to give a neck scratch or receive an ear lick.

    Eva and I are going to have some adjusting to do to get used to the house without him. We'll be OK though and we'll honor his memory along the way.

    Oh, Chester <cry>
    I'm so, so sorry Shell. He was a terrific guy and one of our favorite DF mascots for sure. Thinking of you and your loved ones including Eva, of course. (((hug)))

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I will miss seeing his pictures around the forums and I can only imagine how much you and Eva and your family will be missing him.

    It makes me happy, though, to know what a wonderful life he had with you. He was a lucky guy.

    Rest easy, Chester.

    I missed this post originally. I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to Chester; that's heartbreaking. He seemed like a wonderful dog and he had a good life with you. He will be missed :-(
