One Year

Morris Chestnut has been my dog for one whole year now. With the help of my husband, I have kept this sweet boy alive and well! He’s gained eight pounds and maybe an inch or two in height, as well. I’ve seen him go from puppy-hood into adulthood and have loved every minute of it.


Morris was skinny and scrawny with fur shaved close when we got him. His wavy hair had been horribly matted prior to his close cropped cut. He immediately let us know that he LOVED car rides and having a ball to chase, HATES skateboards and feels just okay about baths. He still feels those things, but now I know that he also likes getting blow-dried after a bath because he’s just not a fan of being wet. He also likes to dry his snout off after a good drink from his water bowl. He loves getting his belly rubbed, but isn’t a fan of being adjusted so that his belly can be reached. He does love to be carried around outside or in strange places so he can really sniff up high, while feeling safe. He NEVER wants to be held if he’s a near a toy. He wants to be CHASED! He LOVES being chased, maybe more than anything. He likes to check on his people and make sure they are in their places before doing anything on his own (like chewing his stick). He loves to stick his little nose in our faces when we lie down to sleep at night and when we wake up in the morning and really get in there for some snuggles. He loves snuggles.


His ears keep growing longer and longer. It makes us wonder: what kind of dog are you really Morris Chestnut?20150607_090511-01You are our dog, that is what you are. Stealing our spots on the couch, carrying your treats around (as if we would take them) and huffing at us when we aren’t quick enough to feed you or pet you or take you on a walk. Our opinionated little medium dog, that’s what you are.
