The other day our neighbors were walking with their 2 year old and 3 year old. The 3 year old is terrified of dogs. She wanted to pet Chester but was scared. My husband held Chester's collar as he sat nicely and finally (when Chester was looking the other way) she started petting his back. Then ran away. Chester then just laid down on the driveway and she came back and did the same thing. It was so cute. Her sister on the other hand---the fearless one---just walked up and gave Chester a kiss. The parents said they'd never seen either of the girls act that way. He was so sweet with them. It was an awwww....moment.
