Eukanuba Dog Show

We will be at the Eukanuba Dog show this week and through next weekend at the Orange County Convention Center. Saturday and Sunday, December 12 and 13, there will be a Meet the Breeds booth setup. There will be many volunteers and their Chesapeakes attending. If you’ve been interested in the breed, and wanted to learn more, this is a great opportunity to meet several dogs and talk with multiple owners.

For those interested in the Brady x Fen breeding, Fen is coming down from Georgia and will be at the show as well. It’s a great opportunity to meet her to help determine if this is a breeding you’d want a puppy from.


Agility Debut

Fen made her Agility debut this past weekend. She did quite well. She picked up a First and Third place and qualifying ribbons in Jumpers and Weaves, a First place and qualifying ribbon in Novice Standard and a Second place and qualifying ribbon in Novice Fast.

She had a lot of fun and we look forward to seeing how she does in the future. Congratulations to Laurea & Fen for their great job!

Visiting Fen in Atlanta

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Newnan, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, to visit with a friend who recently moved up there. The trip served three purposes, I suppose. I was there to help my friend who needed someone to watch her three year old child while she went into the show ring with her dog. This was a very big event for her as she had given up showing for the last three+ years to raise her little girl and knowing how important it was to her, I offered my help. Secondly, I got to spend some time with friends and take some beautiful photos. Lastly, I got to catch up with Fen and her owner, a good friend of mine, Laurea.

Fen aka U-SHR Am/Intl CH CoolWater’s Roane Point CD BN RE RATN JH was from a co-bred litter we did just over two years ago. While I’ve seen Fen several times as she’s grown up, it had been awhile and I’m glad I got to see her. She has grown up very nicely.  She has a wonderful temperament and has really matured since I’ve seen her last. Here are some photos of Fen that I took while I was visiting. Hopefully, we will have some more exciting news to share about her in the future as well.


Congratulations, Fen & Laurea!

2014 National Chesapeake Show Speciality

Thought I’d give a little update from our recent time at the Chessie National Specialty.

Jesse – GCH** CoolWater’s The Tide Is High – made it through two cuts in the breed ring.

Patton – CH CoolWater’s Patton’s Destiny is Some Great Thing – placed in sweeps and made the first cut in a very competitive breed ring.

Fen – SHR CoolWater’s Roane Point BN, RN- picked up two new titles Beginners Novice Obedience (BN) and Rally Novice(RN). She also earned her first leg towards her Companion Dog title (CD). In conformation, Fen took 4th in a large class with many other nice Chesapeakes. This gave Fen the Versatility award – qualifying in three events.

All in all I couldn’t be prouder of our crew and the dogs who did their best to give us 100% each time we asked.


Atlanta: Show & Obedience Update

The CoolWater gang had a nice weekend at the shows in Atlanta.

Thursday, Gabby, SHR CoolWater’s Fly Me To The Moon, picked went Best of Winners picking up a point.
Friday, Fen, SHR CoolWater’s Roane Point, went winners bitch.
Saturday, Fen, took Winners Bitch, Best of Winners for a Major win! This is Fen’s second major!
Sunday, Fen, took Winners Bitch for another point.

Also this weekend Fen’s tried her first attempt at Rally Novice and she walked away with a qualifying ribbon and a perfect score of 100. She got second place by only 2/10 of a second! Fen also tried her first attempt at Novice Obedience as well where she earned another qualifying ribbon with a 192. She rounded out the weekend with two more qualifying legs in both rally novice and novice obedience (beginners novice).

Very nice weekend. Congratulations to both Fen and Gabby!

SHR CoolWater’s Roane Point – “Fen”


What a Weekend!

Boy, I love it when I receive news that I wasn’t expecting. It was a great weekend for our gang and I thought I’d share some of the updates:

  • Fen (Logan x Nova) – SHR CoolWater’s Roane Point – picked up her first Junior Hunter pass and her sire his first Master Hunter pass in GA.
  • Patton (Logan x Nova) – CH CoolWater’s Patton’s Destiny Is Some Great Thing – completed his AKC Championship in Springfield, MA.
    • Patton finished his Championship in 5 weekends with 3 majors at just under 10 months of age!
  • Oak (Nash x Morgan) – GCH* Jala’s Misty Hill CoolWater Oak – earned 3-Group 3’s and 1-Group 2 win in Birmingham, Alabama.

I am just over the moon excited for everyone and their accomplishments! What a wonderful weekend.

Show Weekend Updates

Congratulations to “Fen” – SHR CoolWater’s Roane Point – for going Winners Bitch,  Best of Winners this Saturday in Newnan, GA and picking up her first set of points.

Also, we’re proud to report that Silver GCh CoolWater’s The Tide Is High – “Jesse” – went Best of Breed each day she showed this weekend. We’re not sure how accurate it is, but currently reports that Jesse is the #4 Chessie in the breed nationwide. How cool is that? I’m not sure we’ll hold that spot down but it’s exciting to see.

New Title!

We’d like to give a shout out to “Fen” (Logan x Nova) for earning her HRC Started title this weekend. Fen is 9 months old and she, and her owner Laurea, went 4 for 4 to earn her title. She is now SHR CoolWater’s Roane Point. From my understanding, Fen nailed every mark pretty much flawlessly.

Also, in other news:

  • Logan, Fen’s sire, earned his third Finished pass. He was one of 11 who passed out of 30 in GA.
  • Patton, CoolWaters Patton’s Destiny is Some Great Thing, a littermate to Fen, earned his second major in the show ring in MA.
  • Jesse, GCH CoolWater’s The Tide Is High, took a Best of Breed, a Select and a Best Opposite Sex wins this weekend in PA.

Congratulations to everyone on your success! Here’s to many more!
