I’m not exactly certain, but I think the old dog Chester has been more on guard than usual. He’s been pretty wild, and I don’t think it’s just because of the cold.
Granted, Chester is half Jack Russell, so normally he can be pretty ornery (when he feels like it) -- but lately he’s been more protective than usual. He’s constantly wanting out and showing the neighbors his teeth. Chester’s the better part of 11 years -- he’s way too old to be acting like he’s invincible!!
