Hi , in Sweden there are about 220-230 Chesapeake Bay retrivers max vs a zillion Labs and Golden..
My first owned dog ( 28yers ago) was a Chessie , i had her for 6 yrs when she accidentally eat rat-poison RIP/Rita
after that i 2 male RIP , and then 2 labs i still have, 3 years my wife say to me
" i want a Chessie again , everyone has a Lab " So Nemi is 3 years now, and it looks she will be a fine Duck dog.
Chessies aren't for everyone, but if you once have one you never forget
