    Ah...Punkin. She earned her SH title at 10 1/2 months. I was pretty sure that the youngest MH was a Lab and I think it was 11 months. WRL

    Running master at 11 months but didn't pass a master until 18 months and 4 more to go till MH.
    It doesn't matter when you run a test just when you pass test. I can run my 1 year old in open it doesn't mean anything unless they earn a ribbon.

    In 2005 there were 137,867 registered Labs and something like 3,500 Chesapeakes. In 2011 the Lab was #1 in popularity and the Chesapeake was #46. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is happy with his spot in popularity. They were developed in the good old USA on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay for marketing hunting. The dogs bred today closely resemble the original dogs. Modern Chesapeakes are less aggressive and more trainable. They are still extremely loyal and require a firm pack leader to handle their eager intelligence. A small handful of devoted owners and trainers compete in field trials with the CBR and they have finished 18 dual champion Peakes to date. When last I checked there were close to 100 Master Hunter/Bench Champions with more added each year and there is at least one Grand Champion Master Hunter. The Chesapeake is unique and the breeders who love them have kept them the same dog that can go from the duck blind to the conformation ring. They compete in many venues with success. Most folks who have owned them are sorrowful when they pass and purchase a new puppy to continue the tradition.

    The way I heard it, when a thief tries to break into your house:

    The Chessie opens the door;
    The Lab opens the door and shows him where the valuables are kept,
    The Golden opens the door, shows him where the valuables are kept, and helps him carry them to the car.
