Chip is a big fat heroic matchmaking dog. We fell in love at first sight, but I already had a beautiful Sheltie named DJ. Chip was determined to become part of my family.

One summer day, while dog-sitting Chip, he tried to save my life while I was swimming at the waterfalls and almost drowned during the attempt.

Later that summer, while my dog DJ and I were leaving, he decided to make a run for it. I was calling DJ and suddenly I heard the clicking of heels running across the kitchen linoleum, down the deck, around the fence, finally landing with a thud in the passenger seat of my car. The owners said "take him for a sleepover" and that was that.

A short while later I moved to a farm. During one of our walks Chip bolted after a cat onto farm property. Petrified he'd get shot I ran after him and almost knocked over the cat's owner, a lovely man named John, who I later married. I can't thank Chip enough.
