Chip is my beagle and my best friend. We got him on 4th of July in 2001. When we got to the breeder's house to pick him out, there were a whole bunch of females (his cousins) playing in the yard. All of the sudden, the only male in the group comes crawling out of the big bag of dog food...it was our Chip! We instantly knew he was our dog, and took him home with us. He was the cutest puppy I have ever seen, and the tips of his big ears would get wet when he would drink water! If we were laying on the floor playing with him he would start chewing on our ponytails...thankfully he has grown out of that! Chip has been through a lot in his life...he is such a soldier! When he was only a few months old he ate a bunch of rocks in our backyard and had to have emergency surgery to remove them from his stomach. His vet even brought him home to keep watch over him all night! Then when he was a few years old my brother accidentally shut the backyard door on Chip's tail...the cute little white tip almost fell off! The vet said it was dead and would fall off, but it recovered! Just last summer Chip was attacked by a neighborhood dog about 3 times his size on a walk...thankfully the other pet's owner was very kind and came with us to the hospital where they did some tests and stitched him up! It took him a few months to heal and not be too scared of other dogs but now he is back to normal...only a little leary around much bigger dogs. Just a month ago we took Chip in for a teeth cleaning and they found a lump on his eye that they had to remove and test, thankfully it came back as non-cancerous! A little over a year before we got Chip our golden retriever Spunky passed away from a stroke. I have never been so heartbroken in my entire life, and didn't think I could ever love another animal as much as I loved Spunky. I resisted Chip's charms in the beginning, as I vowed to never feel the same way about another pet. Somehow it happened, and I totally fell for this dog! I feel that Spunky knew we needed a pet to love us as much as he had. Chip is a pretty low key dog but very "chipper" and so cuddly! He is such an amazing companion, now that I live a few hours away he keeps my brother company at night and sleeps in his bed even when my brother isn't home. When I come to visit once a month Chip knows he is in for a real treat! As soon as he hears my name he anticipates my visit, I always feel welcome coming home! Spunky has definitely sent us the perfect pet to take care of us...sometimes when I look into Chip's eyes I feel like I see Spunky somewhere in there! Chip is my world!
