Chester has a new friend in the neighborhood. This friend is staying just next door to us. Yipeee!
Come meet Mr. Shadow…
Ain’t he a handsome hunk?
Shadow actually lived at one of my neighbor’s house (at the end of the road) when he was a puppy. But lo and behold his naughtiness (bite, bite, bite) gave his owner no choice but to expel him from their house (which is not a solution I recommend; do you kick your kids out of the house when they’re naughty?). Thank God my neighbor took him in.
Ohh please don’t look at his private part. He’s damn excited. Wuahahaha
We visited Shadow sometimes during our evening walks before he moves next door. At that time he was a sad & timid dog. Whenever Chester barks at him, he would go hiding. And I’ve never seen his previous owner bring him out for walk or anything. But now? Now Shadow’s a very playful & cheerful dog. I couldn’t recognize him at first. I had ?? hanging above my head when I saw a dog next door. Such different personality!
A sweet smiley dog. Don’t cha love his smile?
Too bad I couldn’t focus properly since he was moving so fast. I thought this picture is good enough to show you how happy he is.
Because of Shadow, I learn a new thing about Chester. Chester will make some kind of neighing sound when he sees Shadow or when they’re in semi-play mode. I couldn’t understand it at first until I saw another big dog in a distant doing the same sound when he sees Chester. I guess that’s the ‘I want to play with you’ sound.
This pose of his remind me of Miss Zebra. Ahh btw Miss Zebra is very chubby now. Happy & chubby to be more precise.
Regarding the semi-play mode, it’s like this. Chester will go sniff at Shadow and Shadow will return the favor by running after Chester. And then Chester will go rodeo like a horse/bull bucking! Hahaha And then there’s the neighing sound from Chester. All this happen with Chester on the leash of course. No off-leash on the road ma.
Here’s Chester peeking at his friend next door.
p/s: I just hope there’s not tick coming from Mr. Shadow. 😛
