Chester’s Lessons

Life, Loss, and Love

A Memoir in Poetry by Jane Eagles

This is the story of almost 15 years of living with my Corgi, Chester, befriending the unique creature that he was, and learning from him in life and death, lessons in life, loss, and most especially love.


Jane is a psychologist living in midcoast Maine who writes poems (now over 1,000) and essays about what her eyes see and her heart feels many of which have been inspired on her daily walks along the shores of Penobscot Bay with her beloved Corgi, Chester.
