Starting To Feel Better....Yeah!

Chess here -    I'm feeling better but I still have a way to go - check out what I've been up to with my big brother Checkers

Last night I was just shaking and shivering so my big brother Checker loaned me one of his fleece outfits...It was a little long on me but it sure kept me warm through the night.  It was designed and made by Mommy's friend Sharon at Try Love Designs in case you might want one!

This morning I took my very first trip out [other than the vetty].  We went to Panera Bread.  I had to wear my cone and they didn't take the cone off because they worried I might lick or bite at my stitches as I sat in the stroller.

Checkers got to sit in the chair.  I think he might have been asking for treat, but, I don't think they were giving any out  :-(

I am still in the cone - but also looking for a treat!

They let me down on the ground for a little bit - but still in the cone!

Checkers got himself all tangled up in the chair.  I don't know if he's very smart! BOL

I made my was over to visit with him

He's ignoring me entirely!

Check this out - they took us to the park for walkies and took my cone off!  

Checkers was on a much longer leash than I and he got to go to the grassy area.  The grass was wet so they were worried about my stitches as they are the dissolvable kind.

But, then, by some miracle they let me into the grass too!  

I keep trying to get Checkers to pay attention but he always looks away.

We're making progress at getting closer -

I got a quick sniff of him!

After this we had to go back to the car.  Checkers was really wet and dirty on the bottom and nobody wanted to pick him up and touch him.  When we got home he had to go straight to the bath.  Now he's all clean and smells like lavender.  

Mommy says that I stink and she can't wait till I can get a bath.  But that will not happen before next Tuesday.  I don't think I'm looking forward to that!

Well friends,  I think I'll go out on the deck to enjoy the afternoon.  Maybe they'll take the cone off again later.  One can hope!


  1. Chess, I am glad you are feeling better and got to go out for a fun time instead of the Vet. I am sure Checkers will come around, he just needs to get used to you. I would be the same way. Stay away from the bath as long as you can. Just sayin.

    Checkers, I know it must be hard to have to share and stuff, but hang in there. It might turn out to be ok to have a brother. Good luck my pal.

  2. Well I hope you get to play without your satellite dish very very soon!!

  3. You are just such a cuite, Chess. And lucky too, getting to go to Panera was a real treat. We bet Checkers and you will get to be great pals once you can shed that cone.

  4. We are so happy that you're feeling well enough for outings, Chess! Checkers will love having you as his brother. Just give it a little bit of time.

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  5. Hi dog lover,

    No matter what your dog’s problem behavior is…

    Be it jumping, peeing inappropriately, aggression, pulling on the leash…or whatever…

    There is ONE SOLUTION that can help STOP this problem now

    The sad fact is…

    Most Dog trainers miss this solution entirely.

    They give you cookie cutting training programs.

    They use outdated and ‘mean’ dominance techniques.

    Or worse yet…

    They have no qualifications and are complete phonies.

    So what’s the answer to stopping your Dog’s behavior problems?

    In 4 simple words…

    Discovering your dog’s hidden intelligence.

    Let me explain…

    In my 10 years as a certified trainer…there’s ONE BIG LESSON I have learned.

    More intelligent dogs are better behaved.

    A More intelligent dog takes commands easier

    …and understands what you need from them.

    The good news is…

    No matter how clever you think your dog is.

    You can >>> Unlock their hidden intelligence quickly and easily.
