Three Chesapeake Relay

When we are out and about just messing around the gang ends up doing the three Chesapeake relay. What is the three Chesapeake relay you ask, well it is when there are no rules, no training technique going on and the dogs can do what they want when I throw a bumper or two or in this case three.

Gman, Nellie and Glory all have a bumper.

Gman, Nellie and Glory all have a bumper.

Glory says "I got my bumper".

Glory says “I got my bumper”.

And the relay starts.

And the relay starts.

Nellie goes in for the hand off.

Glory hands it off.

Nellie decides she is done with this game.

Under Glory he goes.

I still have mine.

I see one here.

Come get mine, I dare you!

Come get mine, I dare you!

The collision.

And the turn around.

And the turn around.

If I don't get a bumper I will make a crazy face.

If I don’t get a bumper I will make a crazy face.

What usually happens is Nellie will steal the bumpers and run off with them and make her own pile, Gambler will get to them the fastest so he swipes them all first and poor Glory just gives them up and she isn’t a fighter.

Walk Your Dog Blog Hop~Saskatchewan Escapades

walk-your-dog-hop-button-orig

Today I am joining up with Paws and Pedals (AKA FitDog101) and Boingy Dog for their Walk Your Dog Hop held the first Monday of the month.

My Walk Your Dog post is going to be on Saskatchewan Escapades. Since I have hunting dogs most of the time we are out hunting and not on a leash. They are on a leash and tied down when we are sitting in our blind but when it comes time to retrieve a bird they are off leash and then the fun begins. Here are some photos of the dogs retrieving birds in Saskatchewan.

The real beauty is seen in the sky’s above the beauty of the running dogs.

Even know the dogs aren’t on a leash and being walked they are still out getting exercise and I am enjoying the beautiful scenery. My favorite hunts happen in Saskatchewan. Hope you enjoyed Walk You Dog blog hop and my Saskatchewan Escapades.

 

Thursday Barks And Bytes

BB3

The co-hosts for Barks And Bytes are Linda from 2browndawgs and Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.
The Barks:
Not too much going on around Sand Spring. It is still winter like here. The snow is crunchy and is hard on the dogs paws, it is still freezing cold here with high winds and still snow up to your bung hole. We did manage to get out this past Sunday and have some fun with the pink bumper. The dogs were super excited, the cold and crunchy snow didn’t bother them one bit.

A quick video of Glory and MK playing and Gman bombing the fun.
John was goofing around with the dogs Monday night (while I was out of town), first Gambler took his head and slammed it into Johns eyebrow while he was bending over to get a toy. Then Glory was screwing around doing turns and such and wacked him in the eyebrow again. This is the outcome that I saw when I came home Tuesday pm.

Monday Mischief~Gman Vs Coat

I can’t leave my jacket on a chair, on a door handle, on the staircase or anywhere’s because Gambler feels the need to grab it and carry it around. Sometimes he just carries it around, sometimes he just lays on it and sometimes he chews holes in the pockets to try and get out the chapstick. I think he has my chapstick addiction as he is constantly grabbing my chapstick and chewing it up.

I guess this gives me a reason to always put my jacket away. Do any of your dogs have to take stuff of yours?

So after I did this post I get up and see this…….

Gambler decided to go though the clothes I had set aside for goodwill.

Glory thought she should help out. Always mischief going on.

Monday Mischief~ACC Booth at Pheasant Fest

The Sand Spring gang well Gambler and Glory were Chessie ambassadors yesterday for the American Chesapeake Club. We were invited to volunteer our time talking about Chesapeakes in the American Chesapeake Club booth at The National Pheasant Fest and Quail Classic Hunting Expo which was held in Milwaukee, WI.

Where is the mischief at Pheasant Fest? The mischief is Gambler getting to kiss the girls…..mauh!

A great time was had by all, many people stopped to pet the dogs and get information on the breed. The most asked questions were if they are aggressive and hard to train. My answer is they are not aggressive if gotten from a good breeder and brought up right and you can’t train them like you train a lab. Chesapeakes have gotten a bad rap from years ago but they have come a long ways with responsible breeders and people learning about the breed and knowing how to raise one.

The Queen Of Hearts Dance~ Stanzie Is Gman’s Queen

lgthe queen of hearts

Thank you Madi & Mom for hosting this great event. 

It’s time it’s time it’s Valentines Day and time for me to wine and dine my sweetheart Stanzie. We are headed to The Queen of Hearts Dance.

I have never been to a dance before nor on a date so I hope I don’t mess things up with this little lady. 

Do you all think she will think I am cool?

Do you all think she will think I am cool?

So let the festivities begin! I start out by jumping in my really cool camouflage big badass truck and head over to pick up Stanzie for our date. Stanzie’s idea of the perfect date is going on a hunt and deading something, going along with that her favorite food is Turkey. Boy do I have a surprise for her.

I hear she likes her man to be manly……I think I am pretty manly in this bigass truck, she for sure should fall for me.

I arrive at Stanzie’s and she is so excited to see me she fly’s out of the house and races down to meet me. It’s time to give her the big surprise before the dance. But first let me see if she will let me give her a big smoochie.
stanzie smiles
Mauhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaa
gamturk
I’m not all redneck Stanzie, I bring you these beautiful roses too. Shhhh…..Madi gave them to me to give to you 😉
For our first date Stanzie I brought you a deaded Turkey, next date I will take you hunting and have you help deaden something.

Time to get rolling and head on over to the Queen Of Hearts Dance.

The next event I am going to sneek away and do as I don’t want to upset my sweetheart. I am headed over to the Kissing Booth for a sweet kiss from Cinderella. You can follow along here. Don’t tell Stanzie what shenanigans I am up to. Thank you  to The Legacy Chronicles for hosting this event.
I also sent off a Love Message which you can read here. Thank you Maggie Mae and Max for hosting this event.
Now onto the really cool event…….The Garden Walk which you can see here. Thank you to my girlfriend Stanzie and her brother Wyatt from Gardening With Wyatt for hosting this event. This was really awesome, I think we look spectacular doing the garden walk!

Love is definitely in the air tonight, this has been the best dance ever and I have the best date ever. Since Stanzie doesn’t care about age or height, she just likes studs I have a question for her.

This Moment~See Beautiful~Love

Love is in the air. Love is always in the air when it comes to the Sand Spring Chesapeake gang. The love that these dogs give off is unbelievable. They have a love that asks nothing in return. So what does a love like this look like? I made a picture video of some of my favorite pictures that I feel shows the love that my chessies and MK give me and the love I give in return even know they don’t ask for it I give it! 

Today is Valentines Day. A day of love. I love that Gambler and Glory will let me dress them up when it comes to Holidays. It takes a special dog to continue to put up with my shenanigans.

MY HEART BELONGS TO A CHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER

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.

I See Beautiful each and everyday when I have my Chesapeakes by my side.
