If you are fortunate enough to come see us this summer, then you may come upon a big, wet dog donning a red collar, most likely tangled up by a tow-line around some picnic table. The dog's name is Chevy. He is, indeed, friendly, & enjoys a good scratchin' around his neck from time-to-time.
I had my first encounter with Chevy a few weeks ago. Our meeting was brief, as he does not speak yet. Chevy is less than a year old and still spills his water bowl every half-hour. So, I approached our manager, Darren, who is Chevy's owner.
Chevy, named after screen-actor Chevy Chase, was born in western Kansas. When Darren was on the lookout for a new puppy, he almost brought home two of Chevy's breed. The other was to be named Chase. However, Darren soon realized that taking care of just one of these Husky, St. Bernard, German Shepherd mixes, would be quite the handful. So, Darren brings Chevy to work with him almost every day.
Like I said, when you come and see us this season, you're likely to see Chevy. His first birthday is June 20th, so maybe he will talk that day. A lot of the kids around here blame his silence on my approach to the young dog, as they say he speaks for them all the time. The kids love Chevy.
"He's an awesome dog," says frequent rider, Kaiden.
His older brother, Brett, uses "Playful" to describe Chevy in one word.
Nonetheless, Chevy is just like any of us up here at KC Watersports- approachable, active & constantly wanting to get in the water. Maybe you can get him to talk, now that you have the scoop on his youthful, puppy life.
