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.

Jesse the Chessie

GCH CoolWater's The Tide Is High- "Jesse"

GCH CoolWater’s The Tide Is High- “Jesse”

We had a very nice surprise this weekend. Jesse, who has been taking some time off  from showing, came back out this weekend in preparation for her attendance at the Eukanuba shows at the end of the year.

This weekend, each day she was entered, she took Best Opposite Sex to the #1 Chessie in the country. The entries averaged to about 17-18 Chesapeakes each day  – as such these placements were nice wins for her.

She received many compliments both from judges and other Chesapeake breeders and we couldn’t be prouder.


CoolWater's Fly Me To the Moon - Gabby


CoolWater's Fly Me To The Moon - Gabby

SHR CoolWater’s Fly Me To The Moon – Gabby

Gabby is 23″, 72 lbs. and dark sedge. Her coat is very course, very short and thick.

She resides in Mississippi and is co-owned with Kevin & Pam Goodrum and Connie Colvin of Alabama. She is primarily a hunting companion.

Gabby is highly intelligent and very active. She is proving herself to be easily trainable and she picks up on concepts well. She is a fast and stylish retriever with good marking ability. Gabby earned her UKC  Started Hunting Retriever title (SHR) by going 4 for 4.

Temperament wise Gabby is very friendly and social.

Conformation wise, Gabby has many nice attributes – beautiful head with little ears/nice ear set, nice topline, great depth of chest and an underline which many Chesapeakes lack. Gabby has shown limitedly in AKC shows. She currently has 10 points (including a major).

She will periodically continue running hunt tests and showing to finalize her championship and we will update the website with her progress.

CoolWaters Captain Obvious


Health Clearances to come


Marvel is co-owned with Connie Cotton and he resides with her in Alabama. He is very special to us as he’s from our boy Risk, the only offspring from our girl Jessie.

Marvel is just a baby but we’ll be sure to post updates on him in the future as he matures. We have lots of exciting plans for this beautiful boy.

Show Update: Raleigh, NC

It’s been a good weekend in Raleigh, NC. Jesse – GCH CH CoolWater’s The Tide Is High, picked up two BOS wins. On Sunday, she went and picked up a Best of Breed win AND made the first cut in Group. Her handler reported that Jesse’s showing very nicely at the moment.

We’re very proud of the two of them.

Show Report: Atlanta Georgia

I’ve been very lax in posting lately – I’ve just been busy with other things.

This weekend, two of our boy Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Oak – Jala Misty Hill CoolWater Oak – and Rip – CoolWater’s RipTide – were entered in the shows in Atlanta, GA.

Oak, took Best Of Breed two of the four days entered. This earned him his Grand Champion title. As such, he is now GCh Ch** Jala Misty Hill CoolWater Oak.

Rip, took WD/BOW three of the four days entered. He received some very nice compliments from the judges. He now needs just one point for his championship. We’re so close… so very close.

Show Report: Florida

I failed to report that Rip received his second major by taking his second Best of Breed win over multiple Specials on Saturday, July 14 under Dr. Robert Indeglia.

This gives Rip – CoolWater’s RipTide- 11 points. Not too shabby for only three weekends of showing. We only need 4 singles now for his Championship.

Show Update: Fletcher, NC

It was a great weekend in Fletcher, NC.  Jesse took Best of Breed on Saturday under judge Shirley Fippin. Then, on Sunday she took Best of Breed again under judge Nikki Riggsbee. That gives her three BoB wins in a row. We’re very proud of her.
