"Chester and My Sandal"

By RonnieAG
I have an old pair of sandals what I clomp around the garden in, and am apt to walk out of them as the stitching has largely gone. When I did so the other day, Chester.......the 12 week old miniature dappled dachshund.........grabbed one and decided it was to be his new toy.

My thanks to all who commented on When Chester Met Brodie and with special thanks to John, Richard, Sylvia, Trev, Bill and Lynne for their User Awards.

If that's all it needs to entertain Chester you are on to a winner. We have a parrot that eats my wife's slippers - when she's wearing them.

Superb capture of Chester doing what puppies do.

I have a pair of leather sandals that I use as my house shoes. They now have lacy edges and an extra peep toe thanks to Alfred.

What a cute little dog. From the colouring, it's obvious that Chester and the sandal were made for each other. Smile
