Coming from a family that only previously owned pet fish, John needed quite a bit of persuading to allow Chipper into the Woods’ home, reports Jackie. Everyone is grateful that they made the decision. “I had never imagined how much love and happiness a dog can bring,” she says. It didn’t hurt that Chipper has been a total mush since day 1. “No matter where you are or whether Chipper knows you or not, the minute he see you he rolls on his back waiting for a belly rub,” Jackie says. In addition to belly rubs and time spent with his family, Chipper’s other love is food—particularly treats. “He loves his treats so when we go out for our walks, his first stop is next door at his Nan and Poppa’s house,” says Jackie. “He knows he is guaranteed to get an extra belly rub and treat there!”
