Chester crossed the freeway, three lanes of heavy trafic running north and south beside the monastery property, and by good luck and fortune was spotted by one of the monks. The young dog was helped through the freeway fencing and the rest is history. That was nearly nine years ago. The monk and Chester have enjoyed each others company ever since.
I've been a fan of Chester since his arrival and I must say he's still looking as good as the day he arrived. Now older of course, and much wiser too. His long coat reminds me of Dougal from Magic Roundabout. Past 'Roundabout' watchers may not agree.
