Hunting News: Scarlett

I was told I don’t post enough photos of dogs working…… here are a few of Ms. Scarlett, CoolWater’s Gone With the Wind, this year. It was her first hunting season and while she was hunted over very limitedly. She picked up every bird she was asked to. Good girl. Good girl.

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.


Show Update: Raleigh, NC

What can I say. It’s been an amazing weekend.

Friday, Jesse, GCH CoolWater’s The Tide is High, took a Group 4 win under judge Mr. Elliott Weiss. Interestingly, Mr. Weiss also awarded Jesse the Select Bitch win in 2011 at the National Show Specialty – one of the largest in breed history.

Sunday, Jesse, took a Group 1 Win under judge Mr. Dale Simmons. WoWsers! To say we are beyond thrilled is an understatement.

Then, to round out the weekend, Monday, she took a Group 2 under judge Mrs. Kathy Vogels.


What a weekend! Thank you to the judges who awarded her these wonderful wins and to her handler, Darlene Bergan, for the wonderful job she does with Jesse.
