    Someone in a HT club I belong to did a...

    I disagreed with McCain's politics but he did have a Chesapeake. And I send out prayers to his family and those that did love him. Just as I did for Teddy Kennedy who died of the same cancer 9 years...

    Unchecked DOJ power

    Frankly, it ought to worry us all whether or not we like Trump, about this unchecked power of the DOJ. Mueller pulled out all the stops for the past 18 months and spent millions to find evidence of...

    The comprehensive list on the pdf file lists 3 Chesapeakes (and 56 Labs) listed for the dog bites recorded over the 32 year period ending 2014. I'm sure my bite is one of those 3 since it happened in...

    I've had pups that were seemingly unaffected by teething, so I think that suspending any retrieving or FF/hold type stuff depends on the dog. I really only ever had one (who is a drama queen) that...

    Have also heard that corn is actually a good source of protein for dogs--the problem with corn is, the kind used in dog food comes from China. It may well be U.S. corn but it is processed there,...

    I have one that froze for about 18 months. Only under judgment and always the last bird, although sometimes she'd be sticky on the 2nd to last. You knew she was going to do it too--she was always...

    Five mos. is way too early to write this pup off as a dud, especially since you've only had her a month. I've had more than one Chesapeake, that would not return with a single retrieve item at that...

    Two days ago the pup had her cast taken off the broken hock (this is same leg with the dislocation) and it now appears very unlikely she would be suitable for a hip replacement, unless things change...
