My human says he named me Checkers because of my pretty coat. But I know that was also the name of Richard Nixon's dog. I am almost 6 years old. I grew up in Oklahoma near a cattle ranch where I used to sneak under the fence to herd 50 cows at once. They couldn't touch me. Good thing the rancher never saw! My family lived in fear of me transforming into 'wild boy'. I no longer do that - much. I spent a happy year with my beloved Mom and Dave in the wilds of Maine. The food there was outstanding. Now I live in Minnesota where I practice my trade of minding the yard and chasing critters. I weigh 75 pounds. Uncle Tom says I am a single muscle. I am told I am handsome. My true passion is Frisbee. I love to catch them, but I love to possess them even more. Swimming is also a major hobby. I enjoy taking my human running so he can stay fit. I can be seen doing all of these things and more daily at Rum River Park.
