Just me and my boy

Now that I have ten minutes to myself while my little man takes a power nap. They are all power naps, never really long enough to get anything done without his help. But I love him for that. Chesney is my handsome Border Collie. His name Chesney well lets just say his full name is Livin in Fastforward! That boy is just on the go all the time. He came into my life at a much needed time. In May of 2005 this fur ball of a 12 week old pup came bouncing into my life after the loss of my Sheltie the previous Thanksgiving. Getting Chesney was an important moment for me. It was getting him that helped me move on from a long two years at a college that really didn't turn out to be the right choice for me, and Chesney was going to be with me for our long trek from California to a new school in Louisiana! Here is where his and my real journey began. Learning from eachother. Chesney has taught me that I have the ability to give such love and care to another being that I thought I never had. I found this when I thought I'd lost my boy forever. He escaped one night and was gone for a hour (felt like years!) At that moment and time I truley realized just how much I cared and loved him. After that moment, not a day goes by that I think about how much this little dog really means to me. Thanks bud!

Now enough of the mushy stuff, here's a little bit about Chesney. He's fast, athletic, and driven, loves working his sheep. He thinks about wanting to work the cows but thats still a challenge in its own that neither I nor him are ready to take on yet. He loves his soccer ball more than his frisbee, but loves his frisbee more than his ball. He loves his rope more than all those, but loves his Sheep and Border Kitty most of all!

Some about me... Well not really much to say to tell you the truth. I play division 1 soccer in Louisiana after transfering fromplaying division 1 soccer at a school in Nothing (I mean Northern) California (jk being a Southern California girl my whole life, Nor. Cal. is like another state!). I am studying Athletic Training and would love working in that field at the college level along with being a Firefighter in California! I will forwarn you that most of my blogs will indeed be about me and my dog, but I will in time throw in other stories along the way!
