Just wanted to send you an up date on Belvedere, whom I call Bell. She is 5 months old and weighs 58 pounds. She is eternally happy go lucky! She loves everybody and greets every neighbor with the fastest wagging tail and smiles! She wants everyone to pet her, and won't take no for an answer. She took a little while to housebreak. she only pooped once in the house, but thought that the inside was the best place to pee. She has been fully trained for about 6 weeks or more. She got spayed today and is even loving the vet! She is mainly an indoor dog, but doesn't mind the cold outside in the fenced in yard. She doesn't care for the heat, but loves the air conditioned house. All in all she is quite a wonderful dog! If we could only get her to sleep past 5 AM we would be totally thrilled. We did get the best dog ever and thank you for her!

Good evening Dyane-
This pictures sums up Wrangler fitting into our family perfectly. He is off to Hunt training school at Troy Creek and is doing well. We miss him, but he will be home soon. You can see in this picture the love the kids have for him. Just thought I would share. He is a great dog and is learning so much so quickly.
He graduated from training with high marks from the trainer who said you would be very proud of his abilities.

Thought I'd write to thank you for selecting Grady for us. He is everything we could have hoped for and then some.
We picked him up on May 11, 2007 and what a lovable lout he has turned out to be. Incredibly friendly with a huge smile that gets along with everyone yet protective enough to let strangers know he is present. He will swim for hours on end, hasn't miss a duck retrieve in 4 years and I hunt 3 days a week all season. You can tell from the pictures that he loves upland bird hunting and at 8 years old he still never seems to slow down. Even as an 8 month old puppy he just seemed to know how to quarter in front of the hunter. His first year we shot 44 birds over him and he just seems to get better. Very quiet whether we are trolling for hours on Lake Ontario or sitting in the duck boat, at least until someone brings out the donuts, and then he persistently talks until he gets what he wants. A little spoiled maybe but at 118 very solid pounds who would rather sit on your lap than the floor he is gifted in letting us know what he wants.
Thank you again for providing us with an incredible pet, companion, hunting partner and man's best friend.

Here is a picture taken at the Northern Flight Hunting Retriever Association's Hunt Test 8/23/14. Pond Hollow Lt. Commander had just gotten his 3rd pass for his JH, and Pond Hollow Flying Prairie Sage Hen had just gotten her Junior Hunter title, handled by owner John Haugland. Nice!
Looking forward to seeing you next month.

Hello Diane and Bill,
What a puppy!! ....
Bogie is a wonderful chessie pup ... energetic, playful, extremely vocal ... and soooo affectionate. Its been slow and incremental with Caleb .. as he tends to herd Bogie around in the house. But they get along and play well, especially outside and next door with the two Goldens. Bogie is learning some basic commands at home before he starts school in about a week. Already he goes for long "walks" with Jim in his power wheelchair .. trotting along smartly. He's a different looking pup than Caleb was at the same age ... longer in the torso, whereas Caleb was and is more short-coupled and deep chested ... but Bogie is gorgeous just the same!

Just an update Dyane
Hunt training is going well. Molly earned her 1st JH pass today and received a very nice rosette from the Susquehanna Retriever Club. There was an anxious moment (for me) when she had to deal with a crippled bird on the first mark, but she brought it back and completed the task.

As you can see from the pic Munson loves his new family whereas Nicklaus is still adjusting. Nick is doing better as the week progresses-I'm working hard to make sure he doesn't feel left out! Munson is adorable-very smart cute and a total sweetheart. My vet was impressed with how well muscled he was already. Thank you for giving me a terrific addition to my family!! You were wonderful to work and enjoyed meeting all your doggy family.

Hi Dyane, it was so nice to meet you! Rudder is adjusting nicely. We are enjoying her every minute with her she has the BEST little personality! You picked the perfect puppy for us we can definitely tell you have been breeding Chesapeake's for over 30 yrs! We were so impressed w/ your kennel and hope to adopt another Chrssie one day!
Rudder has had so much fun with us! She has gone swimming in our pool, a ride on a Hinckley picnic boat walks all over ( she gets tired so sm walks) and the visit to the vet. I hope you don't mind but I gave your info to one the vetticians, she wants to buy one. Everyone in the office went crazy how gorgeous and perfect Rudder is. We are beyond happy that we have one of your dogs!! We get stopped all the time too as people are amazed how gorgeous sweet Rudder is!
Just wanted to give you an update! We hope you are having a well deserved vacation we just have 1 puppy which is a lot of work and you had 9!!
Thank you for such a fantastic puppy!! We will keep in touch & look forward to another dog den the rd!

I think we have the best dog ever. Halo is doing great. She can sit, down, stay and come well for a 10 week old pup. Sticks close, loves to play, and she's calm and confident. I don't know what you did, but she's wonderful.
Thanks again. And thanks for answering all my questions.
