Thanks for the pics. I live on the border of the Stanislaus National Forest and BLM. If I didn't already have a 9 y/o female CBR and a 9 y/o female CLR I would be sending you a deposit on a pup. Your litter/pups are really beautiful and have all of the qualitys (size, color, shape, curls, ect.) that I prefer in a Chessy.
I'll try to post a few photos of my past/present CBR's. Thanks again for sharing the pic's.

No problem, we will take some quality photos this weekend, I'll post a few, yes the litter turned out to be a very Classic CBR litter. The breeder I used for stud breeds very well rounded dogs, she doesn't believe in just breeding for show, even though she shows them. What would a Chessie be if the hunt ability was bred out of them? I've been to a few fog shows to talk to a couple of the owners that have bought dogs from the breeder. I'm happy to say that I met some nice owners that show their dogs and hunt them and they do well. Made a couple new friends to hunt with along the way. What I'm surprised to find is. Chessies that show look like the dogs you meet in the field. That is not the case for labs and goldens. So I think for the most part that CBR breeders have done a good job of keeping a huntable dog to conform to the breed standard. If these dogs have half the will to hunt that their mother does they will be great hunting dogs.

It has become very clear to me that the majority of guys that call about puppy's are window shoppers/tire kickers. Who really have no intention on showing up to look at pups. Much less actually purchasing a dog. It's very bad manners to make an appointment to see puppies and not show up or call or e-mail to say hey not coming so go about your life I'm not coming or changed my mind. I asked the breeder I've been working with about the situation. She said welcome to my world. So I'm assuming that this is the norm. I'd like to say to my fellow duck hunters. If you want a dog but are unsure be up front. And at least use manners and common sense and treat the breeder the way you would like to be treated. I have heard so many excuses and there have been so many no shows. I'm beginning to rethink how I view fellow waterfowlers as a group. I always viewed waterfowlers as a very responceable group. I an disapointed.

Puppy's are great I will introduce a live bird to them Wednesday or Thursday. Can't wait.

So the 1st introduction of a bird went well, all the pups were interested but 2 dogs are birds nuts already. At 4 weeks and 6 days.

I've been looking at the photos for the past 15 minutes. Really fine looking/acting pups. Thanks for posting the pictures and the progress reports, I look forward to them. Keep up the good work. I know what your going through, my CBR had a litter last summer. She only had 6 pups, 3-m and 3-f.

I woulda loved to have had an even litter like that. The females sold so fast. The males it's a struggle. It's to bad after getting the live bird out there's some real drive in most of these pups. They seem to not know why. They just want the bird. It's kind of humorous

Pups are doing great. I've had some good time to work with them with the live bird. I have a real good idea who the naturals are. I feel like I'd be doing them a great disservice if I don't find them a true hunting home. In thinking of discounting price to hunting homes.limited registration of course. And if the purchaser was willing to keep me up on progress. I'd bring them out to our club from time to time so I could enjoy watching one of my dogs hunt. I don't think I can express how enjoyable it is to see a puppy you have bred hit the live bird for the first time like it was a 4 year vet picking up its 200th bird. I was never able to work with my personal pups with live birds. Just duck wings on dummy's. I have 2 pups at 5 weeks that will chase down the pigeon with wings out flapping and take it down. It is awesome and fun to watch.
