Who We Are

Welcome from Phil Niccolls, Tim Hedrick and our two Labs, Lewis and Chester. As the name of our site suggests, we live in Chicago.

We enjoy many outdoor activities including SCUBA Diving,mountain biking, camping and hiking. As well, we enjoy theater, symphony, reading and are both avid wine enthusiasts.

Chester (offically Lord Chester III)was born on 2/14/2013 and is our newest addition to the family. He is very energetic and extremily smart.

Lewis (Lewis VIII officially) is our 7 year old Black Lab, who is quite rambunctious. He too is a large lab, weighing in at 100 pounds.
