New Grand Champion (GCH)

A shoutout and big congratulations to Patton and his owner Todd on obtaining their Grand Championship (GCH) August 21st. Patton is a hunting companion who attends shows on a limited basis. He has done very well and we look forward to sharing future updates on his hunting adventures.


Congratulations to Team Patton!!

I love keeping in touch with CoolWater Chesapeake puppy owners and over the years I have developed many wonderful friendships because of these crazy dogs. Even though I talk with many of our puppy owners regularly, and I keep up with them on Facebook, Instagram and via e-mail, every once in awhile I’m surprised.

Today I was surprised when I learned that Patton, CH CoolWaters Patton’s Destiny Is Some Great Thing, was entered in the Nashua, NH dog show. Patton being entered in the show, wasn’t too surprising as I know his owner Todd does enter him in various events every so often, however, his winning a Group 3 win is! What great news to receive!

Congratulations to Todd, Patton’s owner, and to Sue Burrell with Burrell Handling, for helping Patton excel in the show ring! Here’s to Team Patton — we wish you all many more future successes!

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.


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.
