More on “Chet”

Many thanks to Gail Krueger for sending more info on her Chet, our Chet’s January Friend of the Month:

As to my Chet, he is truly remarkable. He has done agility for years even though he only has one eye. He stopped last [ ] as he is now going blind in remaining eye due to a genetic disorder called Progressive retinal atrophy. Through it all he maintains an attitude that would make your Chet proud. He’s a great spokes pup for shelter dogs everywhere never underestimate them.
PS: He is now doing other dog sports , barn hunt and nose work. Like your Chet, you can’t keep this Chet down.

    Good morning everyone!
    Chet sounds like a really special dog. He has already proven that he can continue doing things with only one eye so I’ll bet he adjusts to his blindness and will amaze everyone.

    Gail’s Chet sounds like a great dog!

    A dreary, rainy day in this neck of the woods.

    A good afternoon to all!

    To the other Chet: What an inspirational story! It goes to show that attitude matters. So glad you have a safe and loving home.

    We are still in the deep freeze but the sun is shining brightly making the world outside sparkle!

    Enjoy the day, everyone!

    It’s great Chet is still keeping active. Nosework is a great activity for any dog. Those with challenges can do it just as well as any dog. Any dog can do it, it’s not just for scent hounds or working dogs. Diana has done scentwork and the variety of dogs is just amazing. From little chihuahuas and papillons to Great Danes and Mastiffs. Three legs, wheelchairs, blind, deaf, puppies to seniors. Unless a dog has lost it’s sense of smell everyone can do it and have a great time.

    Speaking of activities, for those who know or don’t know about the website Teddythedog, they have a new design in their “pick of the litter” Only available for order until Jan. 12. It is Team Sled Dog. It even labels them for reference for those of us that have a hard time keeping track: Lead dog, Swing dog, Wheel dog and of course, Teddy in the sled as Lazy dog. I will be ordering a curvy one in vintage purple because purple is Diana’s scentwork color. Her harness is lavender as well as her lead, so all of my scentwork clothing is purple.
