My dearest Chester, Happy 12th Birthday to you!
I brought Chester to a new vet in Subang last Saturday to check on his limping. New vet again you ask? Yes, you can read the vets history below to find out why. I asked for my dad’s help to carry Chester (we both carry him) into and out of the car since I didn’t want to aggravate his leg(s).
Few weeks back, I found a swimming place for dogs. In planning to bring Chester there, I thought I’ll make it easier for Chester to climb up and down the car since his legs have been getting weaker. So I tried with a stool – failed. Then I found a long board in the house. He managed reaching the car seat with the board. On coming down, instead of making use of the board, he jumped down side way. I decided to let him try one more time. Going up was a success again. But he decided to jump down again and I tried to prevent that and he landed quite badly. Ouch! I thought I’ll try again but he kept refusing. So I gave up thinking he must be afraid. That night, he looks fine.
When I went to Singapore recently, I had Chester boarded in someone’s home. It’s not his first time there as Chester had stayed there few years ago when I went to Hong Kong (spending 6 nights there) and more recently when I went to Melaka (spent a night there).
