Chester naylon
4/28/2002 - 5/25/2013If not for going to the wrong PetSmart an overweight but lovable lab would never have come into our lives ten years ago. The lab that was having trouble finding a home greeted Seanna and Janelle with such warmth and kindness that we knew we found our dog. From that first ride home where he worked his way from the back of the van to the front seat Chester was always by our side. We soon learned that Chester was part magician and to this day we still can't figure out how he got out of his cage, but we do know he did it because he thought we were leaving him. From the very first week we knew he loved us and we loved him.

The next thing we learned was that Chester liked to eat and eat and eat. No food on the counter was safe with Chester around and our Baby Sitter found out that leaving a pizza unattended for even a brief moment was not a good idea, Chester seized on the inexperience of the Baby Sitter and gobbled up that pizza before she knew what happened.


Chester was always looking out for us and we knew we were safe with our big lab listening for any strange noises during the night.

Chester loved our house and our street but somedays he decided he needed to get out and explore. We never knew when Chester would go around the corner to take a pee and then take off to another neighborhood, we would chase him but he was too fast, then 15 minutes later he would be back and give us a look like " no worries I just wanted to check out what was happening in Eagle Run".

Over the years Chester would eat toilet paper ( boy did he love toilet paper), he would eat socks, underwear, magazines and shoes but he would look at us with those big eyes and we could never get mad.

Yes, we were lucky we went to the wrong PetSmart and fate led us to Chester. We have years and years of great memories and Chester will always be with us.

Rest in peace Chester, you were a great friend and companion. You lived a good life and heaven is waiting for you.

Send me and everyone a sign that you think it would be best to get another big dog. If you want us to get another then make one of that type of dog cross our path. Please do agree with me so I can be happy again. Love you!Chester's Best Friend - December 3, 2013

Precious Chester,
When I met you yesterday and saw that big smile on your face, my heart melted. You handsome boy, how your family is missing you. Patient and kind-letting Janelle and Seanna give you Halloween pedicures and letting Ella and Brewster rule the roost. Just look at the pictures your family has posted. Life was extra special for your family because you shared their lives for a little while. Big darling yellow dog, watch over your family. From the bottom of my heart know that it was a privilege to be with you as you crossed over into Paradise. Love, Dr. Laura

Janet, Bill, Janelle, & Seanna,
Christina & I want to first say how sorry we are to hear of Chester's passing. We know he was loved by all of you, and he experienced a wonderful life with the four of you. It's not easy to understand some times, but we have to believe Chester is happy now, in Doggie Heaven, making a lot of new friends.

I'm sorry to hear of Chester's passing but thankful he went in peace and surrounded by his family.Peter Naylon - May 26, 2013
Chester was my favorite dog and my first pet! I loved when he went swimming in the pool with me. When my sister and I were little we colored him like a rainbow with our magic makers. Then we took him trick or treating with us.One year he was a pirate,leopard and dog.I will always miss you Chester. I love you Chester.Seanna Naylon - May 26, 2013
