Chester Nez is named after the WWII veteran, Chester Nez, who was the last original Navajo code talker who served in the United States Marine Corps during the war. He is a fox red Labrador Retriever who was trained at Hero Dogs Inc., a non-profit organization that raises and trains dogs to work with veterans as a service dog. Chester and I are in training and working together to provide a warm, inviting and caring atmosphere in my office. I am fortunate to have Chester join me at work as a therapy dog and at home as our family pet. We look forward to our final assessments in March, 2017. Chester enjoys playing with his tennis ball, eating his treats, cuddling on the couch, getting his belly rubbed and helping clients feel safe and cared about.
