Jim and Lynda C###o are thrilled to welcome to their family Chester
Ravenel Cardo. He is a two year oldish buff and strawberry blond
ShihTzu. ( Insert here the pronunciation of your choice. We are going
with "Sheet Zoo" though our daughter-in-law, Jennifer, feels that one
should take every opportunity to cuss legally in public!!)
We found Chester last week on-line, at GoldenSRescue@gmail.com
out of Easley,SC. (A most humane and worthy rescue shelter, if you are
looking for a place to make a donation, remember these great people.
That is Debra, the owner in the third picture.) We met him on Thursday,
scooped him up and brought him home. He was 24 hrs. from the
"never-ending nap" when Golden rescued him. We know nothing of his
Our vet declared him fit, fine and adorable! He
weighed in at a whopping 17 lbs. and was ordered to drop four ASAP! He
has "soccer knees"- inherent to the breed, and an eye infection that he
gets drops for.
Chester road home very well in the car, found his
water bowl on his own and thus far has done all his business in the
designated natural area of the yard- with no in-house mishaps! He is a
pretty smart little fella. He knows his name and comes when called.
Someone at sometime has taught him how to play fetch! He started this
game on his own and we get tired of tossing the squeaky bone much sooner
than he does! He looks manly in his desert camo collar, he is giving
kisses on cue and he has stolen our hearts!
Please consider this an open invitation to come visit us and meet our fuzzy faced little guy!
Love, Jim and Lynda
