Well, Chester turned 6 months old last week. He is now 65 lbs, has finished his second series of obedience lessons, and will start level 3 (obedience with a little agility) next week. He is also having a series of 5 private lessons...he has a strong personality. I figure by his growth he will be a big boy, so I want him well behaved before I have a 90 pound untrained thug on my hands... He has been doing really well, but...
This morning he woke up throwing up, again. Of course, since he had that obstruction surgery, I was very concerned, so brought him immediately to the vet. WELL, from the moment we walked in he turned into another animal. He was jittery, barking, and nervous. No obstruction, but needed 2 shots for the vomiting and some fluids (IV). The tech gave him his first shot and he yelped to the high heavens, then the second shot came and he reacted so quickly that the needle broke off in him ! He was screaching in pain (BIG baby!!), the needle was finally removed from him, and he proceeded to lie down and put his head on the vet's knee for the IV...the real Chester had returned and evil Chester was gone, just that suddenly.
He is feeling a bit better now, but WHAT an episode!! Oh, here's a photo of him "recovering"...

Oh this made me laugh! Truly, LOL. He is a magnificent boy and if he does become a thug? I know a certain black boy he can swap baseball caps with. They can both wear them backwards and do that... hand/head nodding thing. And then be crated for the rest of their lives.so I want him well behaved before I have a 90 pound untrained thug on my hands...

I'm glad he's on the mend. He's a lovely boy.
Awww, poor boy. Maybe he reacted that way because he was stressed? Before the reaction, what was the other dogs behaviour like?
Poor Chester. i am glad he is recovering. That is a sweet picture of him. He is a beautiful boy.
Poor chester I HATE needles so i feel your pain in that area chester. He is a big boy already they grow up way to fast.
~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.
Poor guy but he sure is a handsome fella. The "thug" comment just cracked me up! Hope he is feeling better soon.
Poor baby had some bad experiences at the vets. Mine always act up when I take them. I always leave the office embarrassed. They think I have bad dogs
I can't picture Chester as a 90 pound thug, but more like Mr. Good Manners.
