Chowder was such a great dog for our family. She was so gentle and loving, all she wanted to do was please us. I loved the way she was so excited to see us when we would get home. I loved how she would get super hyper and loved to wrestle and play with us. Even though it was annoying at the time, I loved and will miss the way she would sneak upstairs to go lay on one of the beds. She was fascinated with lights and shadows and would stare at them for hours trying to catch them. She loved to run, swim, go for walks, go in the mountains, but mostly just wanted to be with me, Lee, and Mason and was happy as could be just being at our side. She will be greatly missed but will remain in our hearts forever. I'm glad we were able to have such a great dog and look forward to the day when we can be with her again. We love you Chowder!
