    Soon, within the next two weeks we will need to put our current chessie down. This is our third Chessie and just love the breed. It's so hard to put this one down but we decided to look.

    Can anyone recommend an outstanding Chesapeake Bay Retriever Breeder? Papers with champions is preferrable. Thank you in advance. It's a tough time, please keep us in your prayers. Michael and Jane

    Michael & Jane, I'm truly sorry for your loss I've been there. You could start your search at the public library and look for a recent issue of "Gun Dog" magazine. It has great articles and a all breed classified section.

    Sorry to hear you will be losing your dog. I have very fond memories of hunting over a Chessie in the late 60's, Missouri River sandbar, goose/duck decoys out, temps of 10-15 above/below depending on the wind, a big Chessie named Jack who would race out of the blind, grab a downed goose, race back with a big Canadian with his coat all frosty. What a dog and he did this all day long.
    I'm sure you have many memories of your dog too. Best of luck.

    Where are you located at? I'm sorry for your loss. My brother lives in Mass. and he purchased one for me, back in the late 90's. Unbelieveable companions, she broke my heart when she had to be put down!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Mike and Jane,

    I am really sorry for what you are going through. My wife and I had to put down our chessie Sage last summer. It's not fun. I have owned four Chesapeakes and for my money, they are the best large dog period, and I have had a lot. We don't have a chessie now, but that may change. One of our club members has a two year old male from Chesabar Kennels in NJ and it is a fine looking dog. He hunts and it is also a family pet. Says he could not be happier. Their web site is chesabar.com.

    Best of luck and our thoughts are with you.

    John and Karen

    I truly understand what you are going through Sgt. Mike. We had to put down our old GSP 'Rusty' last month after he went into kidney failure. There was a two week period before hand that we knew his time was up and it tore us up.

    Give yourself some time to heal before getting that new best friend. The saddness that you are going through is directly porportional to the amount of love that special friend brought into your life. Cherish the memories.

    I am heartbroke for you right now. I had 2 black labs from the same litter. Last year I had to have one of the girls put down due to diabeties. The other one is still with me now. I just look at her and want to cry because I know it wont be long till she's gone too. It's hell to get old!....Ziggy
