Vester was released from a breeder when he was 10. He quickly became the “guard of the couch” (whole couch and recliner). No one was allowed on them except for the two of us. He growled at strange people and was ready to back that up if need be. As he grew older he found that humans might have treats in their pocket and if he turned on the charm (and he did have charm) he might get some. He became friends to many but he had to choose who he wanted. Vester never missed a meal and was a lovable old gentleman ready to defend his human and his couch. He died 3 months before he turned 14 in 2013.
