Today we are going to the annual American Chesapeake Club “WI Chessie day’s”. The first time we attended one of these events was when Norman was  6 months old. The host was Sandy Dollar who owned Norman’s Grandpa. I currently train with Sandy each Wednesday. Patti Maye has been the host for the past several years. We go when their isn’t a hunt test going on so this is the year to attend again, a time to meet up with other chessie owners and talk about what we love “our chessies”.


Of course I will have my camera and take tons of pictures so stay tuned to find out how our day went.

Norman’s puppy (Gamblers Sisters) has a new hunting title

Earlier this month “Annie” earned her HRC Started title (SHR) owned, trained and handled by Ken Shaw. She is now She is now SHR Shaw’s Go Gett’em Annie. Way to go Annie and Ken, congrats you have made me proud doing what we have bred these dogs to do. You can also check out Annie’s modeling career with a photo of her on She is the chessie with the cat by a present. You can enter a contest to win great stuff from Paw it forward with Purina.

A rough and ready sporting dog,
With loyal, loving ways-
My Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Puts sunshine in my days.

A dog that’s sure to follow its nose,
Until the chase is done.
When that pup looked up at me,
I knew my heart was won.

Roaming happily by my side,
Or resting at my feet-
My Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Makes my life complete.

Thanks to Ruckus The Eskie for this Sepia Saturday blog hop.

Here is what Love Is Being Owned By A Husky (Jenna along with Melissa from Barking From The Bayou are the new co-hosts)  says about the hop: So please feel free to link up and party with us! 
Parade you fav pet photo’s , stories , ANYTHING you want! The only rule is . . . .
There are no rules!
And that’s the way we like it! Who needs rules at a party anyhow?
BUT it is always a good idea to link back to your hosts, and maybe even give them a follow!

Also, this hop consists mostly of kitties , there are a couple doggies that are involved, but the majority are kitties, so one of the reasons Melissa and are now co hosting is to let you all know that this hop is DOG FURIENDLY as well!

  1. That sounds like a fun day, I bet you are enjoying yourselves, and can’t wait to hear more about it. Norman’s offspring just keeps making everyone so proud!


  2. Sounds like a good time! Hope you had a fun day!! And thank you for sharing the Pet Parade, FYI: it’s Rascal and ROCCO. The co-hosts should have an updated image with the correct spelling if you share about it another time. 😉 Congrats on being featured on the Pet Parade this week!


  3. I am as usual way behind. Had a flat tire Friday morning which together with shows and training put me behind most of the weekend. Can’t wait to hear about the fun day. Congrats to Annie!
