Gambler stayed at my friends house when I went on vacation. He had 11 days of work which to him was fun work. He was doing what he was bred for….hunting, retrieving, more hunting and more retrieving. Justin is a hunting guide for All Seasons Adventures in Wisconsin. This time of year he is duck, goose and pheasant hunting. He takes clients out hunting and on his off days he is hunting with his friends so each day some type of hunting is going on. Unfortunately Justin’s Chesapeake Riley tore her ACL and needed surgery so she is out for the hunting season which left Justin without a pick up dog. Since I was going to be on vacation and Gambler was going to be in his kennel keeping out of mischief I thought he might as well have a job. He fit right in at Justin’s home, his new job kept him busy and tired which meant no mischief was to be had. Here are some pictures of Gambler and his new job.
First hunt was with Glory as pick up dog also.
Some nice canvasbacks.
Gambler not being left behind.
Guarding his birds.
Another pheasant hunt.
He also had a job of guarding Cassie’s office with Riley.
Selfies in down time to show he’s not getting into any mischief.
Extra loving from Danica.
Chesapeakes are known to be one person dogs, that they don’t like to hunt for other people than the person who trained them. Gambler has shown that he can get along well with others and has done a great job listening to Justin and following his direction. He has had many blind retrieves also. Gambler hopefully has learned to trust his handler and realize that this is a team sport and will be better at his hunt tests next year. He sure is getting a lot of experience hunting this fall. This isn’t the end of hunting with Justin either, he will be back with him for more hunts.

Rocky is an adult male Chessie who likes to swim and hike. He needs someone who is experienced in the breed or similar breeds. He would be the happiest as an only dog. No cats or small kids. If he was the only animal, kids would be ok, as he has grown up with kids. Rocky needs someone to love him and give him attention and structure.Rocky was co owned by a local breeder who passed away. He comes from very good lines. His co-owners now do not have time for him and really don’t have the knowledge to work with him and give him the space and exercise he needs. Rocky is still with his co-owners.A friend of the breeder is trying to find Rocky a good home. CRROW is not placing this boy nor have they done any evaluation on him.. It will be an owner adoption.
Please e-mail Sue@crrow.org for the contact information.
