Pet of the Week: Chester

Becky's Pet Care

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Chester, a Dachshund who recently became a big brother.

Here is what Chester’s owner, Amanda, had to say about him:

Hi Restonites!

My name is Chester and I’m a 12 year old mini Dachshund. Don’t let my age fool you, I’m still very active. My favorite hobbies include sleeping on anything plush, sunning myself on the deck, getting into the trash, bossing around my dog cousins and going to the office with Mom.

I recently became a big brother to a little human that I’m just now starting to show a bit of interest in. We like to go for walks together in his stroller (I ride in the bottom compartment!) and snuggle on the couch.

I have a very strong personality aka I do what I want. Sometimes I pretend not to hear my parents when they want me to come inside but I can hear the fridge opening from 5 miles away.

If I feel like I’m not getting enough attention I’ll fake an injury (like that one time Mom was out of the country and I limped around until I thought nobody was watching and then I was fine. I got a steak out of that performance).

Most of the time I’m a sweet boy but slightly naughty :-). Mom always says it’s part of my charm.
