1/1/2002 - 8/8/2016Heaven gained a true angel on August 8th 2016. Words cannot define how special this gentle dog was. He wasn’t just a pet he was the Rock of our Castle! Chester was the most amazing dog that we have ever met in our lifetimes. We were truly fortunate to have him in our World. Chester aka “phoopie” touched the lifes of all he met. Chester loved people more then he loved his own kind. He was known by many names “Chester “, “Chester the Molester”, “Phoopie" and of course “Hoover” the eating vacuum cleaner. Many say that Chester was the lucky one to have us, but he gave so much back and we were the blessed ones.
Chester loved to travel but our favorite place to take him was Mendocino. Everybody called him the “Mayor”. He was loved by many and we were identified by way of him. Chester had more visitors then both of us put together. He received more hugs and kisses then we ever did. Chester’s evening walks became a neighborhood event and were highlights for many neighbors and friends. Chester was not a shy dog he made himself comfortable and adapted to any situation.
Almost 15 years ago I thought I had met my soul mate and I gave my heart to him. Then I learned what true love was once Chester met Mike. Mike got “HIS” heart. He was not only a Man’s best friend but a true companion. Chester will be immensely missed by all who knew him.

What a great picture of your boy, ready to go on a ride. He was so lucky to have a family who loved him, but also all the love from his many friends. I know he will be missed by everyone who knew him and I hope all the wonderful memories will bring comfort and peace. Wherever Chester is now, I'm sure he has made a ton of new friends!Rene Butler DVM - August 10, 2016
