Friends of Pickles: Chatham

Posted on

First, a little exposition:

Before Pickles, there was Louis. A black lab, Louis was big, quiet, gentle and perhaps known best for the things he didn’t do (or rarely did): bark, run, fetch, roughhouse, beg, or chew. He amassed a few toys before we realized that he didn’t really play with them, but he did keep them collected under his bed and would diligently put them away after a visiting dog – or child – played with them.

Now for Chatham’s story:

After taking care of Louis one morning, our friend Joann decided that Chelsea, her golden, needed a brother, and that he should be a black lab. Enter Chatham. Joann stopped coming to Pooch Park shortly after Chatham’s arrival. Turns out that he was – and still is – the anti-Louis.

Perhaps a rose is a rose is a rose, but not all black labs are the same.

Thanks to Chatham and Joann for sharing this picture and letting us share the memory of Louis.

  1. Pickles is our girl and we adore her, but if it wasn’t for Louie and the great love we had for him we probably would have missed the opportunity to meet her.We will love and miss Louie forever and deeply appreciate all the goodness he brought into our lives, topping that list would be Ms Pickles.

    Louie will be forever in our hearts. Chatham may look a tad like Louie especially now with his premature gray, always be near me, protects and loves his furry sister but, as we all know, he’ll never be anything close to Louie.

    When we first met Louie, he would knock Chelsea down and nibble on her ears and neck. As she got up, shaking her wet ears about, I was convince that she hated that part of pooch park. However, as time went on, I couldn’t help but notice, she would make sure to be in Louie’s path. One day, Louie’s attention moved to another, and there would be Chelsea egging him on, hoping to capture a reaction. She absolutely loved her friend. I found a picture of her when she was obviously very young. I’m sure she was dreaming of her wonderful day playing at pooch park with her friend Louie and friends.

    Don’t get me wrong. I love my dogs. But, the moral of the story…..have Betty pick out your pups. She does an excellent job.

    We miss Louis. He was (and still is) Pogo’s BFF. We love Miss Pickles too though. And We miss seeing our friends Joann, Chelsea, and Chatham.
