My Story

i had been searching all day for an English Setter ...i got a telephone call from a breeder to say one was available in southampton, i was so excited...
i waited very impatiently for my husband Ian to finish work, once home we were back out of the door again and we drove the 45 minutes or so to the adress we had been given....

There you were ' an Irish Setter !'  no black and white markings just a red head with the skiniest long legs that had little or no control!!!  how could we leave you... you were adorable... so we took you home and there our story begins.

Chester, you were a nightmare for the first year and a half...you destroyed our garden.... ate our flowers.... used it as a mud bath and turned the kitchen into the same...  i remember the day we spent a fortune on flowers from the garden centre.... spent hours making raised flower beds... pride of place was my red hot poker...  a beautiful tall flower with a gorgeous red head......  we stood back and admired it... put you on the patio and closed the gate.....    how you got into the garden i just dont know... but in you got... didnt touch anything but the new flower beds... and you ran down the garden with my red hot poker in your mouth.... i couldnt even look at you.... and that was how you were for 18mths..   with every naughty thing you did or huge muddy mess you made, we would look at each other and say.. awwwwww but he is cute!!!!!

as the years went by you settled down and grew into a gorgeous gentle handsome man... 'my man'

your love was overwhelming, your loyalty and devotion touching.  if i could have turned you into my husband i would have been the most contented person alive.

you were beautiful, stuning.  everyone stopped to say hello.... even the neighbours who dont talk to me would stop and chat to you as you stood guard in the front garden..

the postman if he wasnt delivering to us would cycle past and bark at you, couldnt believe it...even he knew what great fun you were!!!

every walk would atract new admirers, your beautiful shiny coat caught everyones eye...our drives out, you insisted on sitting in the front!! haha.... window right down, head hanging out the window... ears flapping about.(we wont mention the shoestrings!!!)..   you turned heads wherever we went...my god we were so so lucky to have you.

The children grew up and you grew with them, you never tired of playing with them.. chasing them around the garden.. stealing their teddies.... you know the ones chester.  they became sharing ones...  yours in the daytime while they were at school and theirs at night for bedtime...  you would wait eagerly for sophie and josh to finish school, scrabble around to find the teddys and run past them into the garden... you teased them and made them chase you.. running round and round the garden... how we all laughed.. you were so cheeky....

i bought you a lovely expensive fur bed for you to sleep on... but you preferred mine didnt you.... i would wake sometimes in the morning with your head sharing my pillow snoring away!!! i loved you so much i would just kiss your nose and that would be enough to set your waggy tail off.... every night was the same routine...  come on then i would say... bedtime... and we would race up the stairs to see who would get into bed first..  yes my man.  you won everytime, but when i said  move over... bless your heart you did... the nights you fell asleep laying against me snoring and twitching and i poked you to stop you... i wish i could take those back and just leave you sleeping, you looked so peaceful..

the mornings i would try to get to the toilet without waking you.... but oh no... i would be sat there with your paw on my leg!!!    i would be almost falling off the loo trying to catch your tail from wagging so you didnt bang on the kids bedroom doors and wake them...you were so funny....

i have so many memories... and all of them happy.. 

you have left me with a hole in my heart that will take such a long time to heal... i love you my man.....
you had a big heart... a big personality..... you were my big handsome chester...
my man chester.... i will love you forever. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
