Qualified twice for the National Open Championship and five times for the National Amateur Championship.
Top Chesapeake Bitch in the Country
Open 1987, 1990 1992 AND Amateur 1988, 1989, 1991
From a personal standpoint trained with the Patterson's AND Jessie, judged her in the all-age. She is without a doubt the nicest Chesapeake and retriever I have thrown birds for except perhaps her daughter
DUAL CH and AFC JJ's Chi-Town Blizzard CD MH top those apple's. I had the opportunity to judge the 1996 Chesapeake Specialty Amateur All-Age stake at Mike Lardy's place , Handjem Kennels, watched a lot of excellent dogs and Jessie would have been there with the best of them.
