He really is. Pretty much exactly what I wanted. Confident, stable, easy going, active, but able to chill when he needs to, very expressive, and with enough spunk in him to make things fun. ^.^ I am having so much fun with him. I mean, how can you not love a dog that wookie growls at you when he is really happy and likes to chase raindrops outside during a thunderstorm? :rofl1: If all Chessies are like him, I think I'm hooked.
