We got our first Chesapeake Bay Retriever in 2004. From Curly's kennels in Allegan Michigan.
In the fall of 2006 I got the idea that I wanted a male dog. I found a dog outside of Chicago IL. I got him for Christmas and named him Gauge. He was a beautiful big male. As he grew I thought he was good looking so I went and watched a dog show to find out what they were all about. There I met Maggie Fisher who has taken me under her wing and taught me more than I will ever remember. I began to show Gauge but he isn't too fond of the ring. Maggie saw Ginger and told me to get her into the ring. So we started her show life in 2009 at 4 years of age.
