Default The neighborhood dog

A friend that lives around the corner posted this pic on fb. I've known this dog for a long time and when we go by his house, Sadie always wants to play with him. He, also, walks down the road past our house and Sadie goes nutso but he pays no attention,(I think he may be deaf), and I think he is on his way to his favorite duty spot in the woods as he comes back, walking slowly a few minutes later.
I did not know his name before this.

This is Chubb, the neighborhood dog. His very favorite place to sleep during the day is right in the middle of our little road on the speed bump! He is friends with the whole neighborhood! The UPS and FED X drivers all give him treats! We have 470 people in our town.

He has been sleeping on the speed bump for years. He is always stopping the little bit of traffic we get! His best friend is "Mo" the cat!
In this case he found a beautiful spot in the cherry blossoms instead of the speed bump.

And before anyone gives grief over letting the dog sleep on the road, it is a very lightly traveled road and only used by locals that know how to watch for Chubb.

He looks like a lovely old fellow. I know the idea of a neighborhood dog surely wouldn't fly where I live, though. How do his owners feel about his choice of sleep area? I assume he goes home for meals?

Actually, I've never seen him sleeping on the speed bump as it is not in sight from our place. I have seen him sleeping on his porch or lawn when Sadie and I walk by. The speed bump is right in front of his house and when he walks by our house is the farthest I've seen him away from home. About 2 blocks.
Margie just confirmed that he is 'deaf'

Poor Chubb no grief here but a little concern about his well being. Do you know if he sleeps outside in the winter/very bad weather? He does looks very laid back though

Oh my gosh, I just AWWW'ed out loud. He is such a handsome boy! I love Older dogs, they have beautiful faces. He seems like such a sweetie. Chubbs is a great name! Sounds like something out of a movie.

BigBoy, there is no cause for concern about his well being. Other than being old and deaf. He doesn't sleep outside in nasty weather.

Looks like a lovely old boy! Out of respect for his age and his status in the neighborhood, I think he should be called "Mr. Chubbs".
