Chester is the fucking best

I've always wanted a dog. I grew up with a poodle named Max who LOVED my mom. So much so that he wouldn't let any of us near him except for her. Needless to say, I wanted more.

I've looked for a dog constantly. Never too seriously, always with a bit of meandering, but always knowing I would meet my match. Ask my husband and he would say "you fall in love with every fucking dog you see - how do you know that one is THE ONE?" To which i have no response. Because he's right.

Enter petfinder.com or shall i say Tinder For Dogs. In my 10th year looking for The One, I set my filters right (thanks Naomi!), checked daily and finally (finally!) a dog popped up that I fell for immediately. I never thought Tinder or app dating really worked out, but now I'm a true believer. Chester was just there, in the photo, looking at me with those teddy bear eyes, saying, I know you! I get you!

It was a fucking miracle that when I responded to the photo he was still available and in Tijuana. Which yes, took me by surprise, but why not adopt a dog from Mexico. I don't believe in walls, I could give this dog a life of love and happiness. So we adopted him. And long story short, we love him so fucking much I can't believe he's only been with our family for just 5 months. He makes everything better, except when he shits in the house. That's a real bummer. But fuck, do you see those eyes, thats sweet fraggle face. He's the fucking best.
