CoolWater's SuperNova

Training Day: Tallahassee, FL

Today, I received some wonderful photos that were taken of Risk and Nova during a training day. It was so nice for someone to go out of their way to make copies, put them on disk and mail them to me – as a bit of a surprise. I thought I’d share and I hope you enjoy them as I do.


Show Report: Tallahassee, FL

It was a good weekend at the dog shows.

Friday, Risk,  CoolWater’s Out On A Limb, took Winners Dog and Best of Winners for 2 points. Nova, CoolWater’s SuperNova, took Winners Bitch and Best Opposite Sex for a point.

Saturday, Risk took Winners Dog, Best of Winners for another 2 points and Nova took Winners Bitch, Best Opposite Sex for a point.

Sunday, Nova took Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, Best Opposite Sex, which earned her her second major win.

Risk only needs one point to obtain his show championship and Nova only 5 points.

We’re very proud of them!

Hunt Test Report: Risk



I’ve been meaning to post these. Here are a couple of photos that I received on Risk – who went hunting a couple of days in December. Although the photos are similar, they are from two different hunts. I hear he’s doing very well in the blind and that he keeps getting better and better with each hunt.

Nova” – CoolWater’s SuperNova – took Best of Breed, earning herself a 3 pt. major. This was Nova’s second weekend in the ring. Her first weekend, she earned herself herself 2 pts. by going Winners Bitch each day.

Risk” – SHR CoolWater’s Out On a Limb JH – took Best Opposite Sex, earning himself a 3 pt. major as well. Risk currently has 10 points all earned by taking major wins.

It was a good weekend, indeed.



Making a commitment to obtain a Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is a long-term commitment as the average lifespan for a Chesapeake is 8-15 years.

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a hardy active breed. As puppies, Chesapeakes requires a lot of socialization, basic obedience, and a firm but honest owner. If you cannot provide these basic items, then a Chesapeake puppy might not be for you.

Chesapeakes are best suited with a job to do – whether it be retrieving the morning paper to retrieving ducks from a blind to obedience work to agility trials. If you aren’t sure whether a Chesapeake Bay Retriever is right for you, but you’d like to learn more, please contact me. I’m happy to help guide you through making the right decision for you and your family.
