    I have 6 Chesapeakes and I bred them all. Except for the first one back in 1981, all my dogs have been puppies I bred and kept. I've never had a problem with the puppy being too dependent on the dam....

    I have one that never had heartworms, but she runs out of steam faster than other dogs at a similar fitness level when it's warm. Even if it's not super hot, she is practically gasping after running...

    Obama has blood on his hands for the Dallas massacre. Anyone see a pattern here? He rushes to defend the two men shot by the police as if they were sainted choir boys, when at least one, the Baton...

    I specifically exclude breeding from my contract because there's so much more than clearances, nearly all of it out of the breeder's hands once the pup leaves, that determines whether or not a dog is...
