Ding Dong #ChewyInfluencer calling.

Preacher grabbed her hiking hat and treats and ventured into the backcountry of Stancerville to get some exercise and try out Merrick Backcountry Pacific Catch Real Salmon Jerky.

Look how long and thick this salmon treat is!

Preacher thinks she is sneaky and tries to steal the treats.

Oh the smell that came out of the bag when opened, Preacher couldn’t sit still waiting for me to give her a treat, the strip was long and thick she grabbed it like no ones business and ate it down. The treat didn’t last very long as it was just to tasty. I smelt my fingers afterwards and I didn’t have any of the fishy smell on my fingers.

MK joined us in the wood and she thought since the treats were made of fish that she should be included in on the goodness. She just smelt the bag but didn’t get a treat as Preacher was pushing her aside trying to eat them all. I did give one treat to all the other chessies and they too gobbled them down and thought they were delish. 4 paws up for sure on the Backcounty treats!

First Bloom

I had to share with you my plant that bloomed for the first time since I’ve had it. I’m not sure what kind it is but think some sort of Easter Cactus. I got it from my mom over 25 years ago. I actually thought it was ugly because it was just green with long vines on it that would poke the heck out of me when ever I watered it or transplanted it. Last year I moved it to a new location in the back bedroom because I was sick of looking at it. A few weeks ago I went to water it and low and behold a small bud appeared, I was super excited. Then Friday I went to water it again and holy cow look what that little bloom did! Plus there are three to four more blooms. The ugly duck turned into a beautiful flower now.

I wonder if I’ll have to wait another 25 plus years before it blooms again.

Gman And The White Coats

Gamn And The White Coats

The white coats is a field trial term. In hunt test you need to wear dark or camo clothing, in field trials the people out in the field wear white so the dog can see them at a distance since field trials are long distance marks. The owners will wear white as well so when doing blind retrieves and the dog is looking back at the owner they can see the handles easier.

We currently have our white coats on training Gambler because we have him entered in an upcoming field trial near our home. He is entered in what is called the qualifying stake.

Here is a link to a nice write up on the difference of AKC Hunt Tests and Field Trials, you can see it by clicking here.

Gambler has only ran in one field trial, he entered the open, amateur and the qualifying stakes in last falls ACC Field Trial Specialty, so this should be very interesting. We’re not expecting to win, we hope to just make it into the second or third series to show that he can move on and not get dumped in the first round.

The test is being held over Memorial Day weekend so I will keep you posted.

A Dakota’s Den And Rachael Ray Thanks

Chef Iron woof is at it again, this time he would like to give a giant bark out to the kind folks at Dakota’s Den and Rachael Ray. A few weeks ago we were notified that we won a giveaway on Dakota’s blog. The give away was for some Rachael Ray Nutrish Dog Treats, we were so happy to hear we won. We had never tried Rachael Ray treats so this would be a fun experience.

Hmmm Soup Bones and I don’t even have to cook!

Iron Woof picked out soup bones for the treat of his choice. He never had a soup bone treat so he wanted to try his paw at it.

A really nice sized bone.

The bone is nice sized and it is soft so you can break it in chunks if you want to.

Give it to the gman now!

Nom, nom, nom!

You didn’t have to ask Iron Woof twice to try this treat it was delish if you ask him. He really enjoyed it. Many thanks to Dakota’s Den and Rachael Ray for the treats!

New UKC Grand Champion

Sand Spring Chesapeakes has another UKC Grand Champion. The first Grand Champion is Gambler owned by me and now the second one is Josey owned by Tom and Irene.

Josey is out of HR U-CH Sand Spring No Gut’s No Glory SH THDN CGCA TT       and        HR CH SRR’s North Point Thunder Bay SH WDQ CGC 2015 litter.

This past weekend we attended the Dodge County Canine Club annual spring UKC show. Josey went into the weekend with 2 legs towards her grand champion title. Tom’s goal was to finish her grand champion this weekend and he did it. Josey took the champion win and best of breed in 3 out of 4 shows. In the champion class when going for your grand champion title you need three already champion dogs in the ring and you need to beat the dogs in the ring for the leg towards your title. I entered momma Glory and sister Guilty to make up the three champions. The judge that awarded Josey her final win was Dean Spielvogel.

Besides becoming a grand champion in the show ring Josey received her Rally Obedience level 2 title, was awarded 30 all star points in Rally 1 and total dog each day.

Josey’s new registered name with all her titles in just 22 months of age is:


There are no words as a breeder that I can say to tell you all how proud I am of Tom and Josey. These are much deserved ribbons and titles. Tom and Josey’s dedication has paid off. Tom sets goals for each year and they accomplish them together. He put’s in a lot of time and practice in by attending various classes and it shows. Josey is very versatile in what she can do at such a young age. The next goal for Tom and Josey is to achieve her AKC Junior Hunter title which I have no doubt they will do. Thank you Tom for all that you have done with a Sand Spring pup. I so enjoyed being there with you when you have received some of these titles. Keep up the good work!


A Best Of Breed On Mothers Day

Glory received a Best Of Breed and a Champion win towards her Grand Champion title in UKC today. Momma Glory competed against her two daughters Guilty and Josey. What a great Mothers Day!

Riggs Training For Junior Hunter Tests

Yesterday you read about Josey training for AKC Junior Hunter tests, if you missed it you can see it here. Josey’s brother Riggs is also training for Junior Hunter tests. Riggs is a little behind the eight ball with his training for hunting and hunt tests. We got Riggs back last December when he was 18 months old. We started working on the basics with him and he really progressed with his training and is now running the same marks as the other dogs. Both Josey and Riggs are out of Glory and Thunder’s (2browndawgs) July 2015 litter.

Here are some pictures of Riggs from the training day we had with Josey.

Riggs lives across the pasture with my friend Roger who is the co-owner of him. He is living the life out in the country, hopefully this summer you will see some ribbons and a title come his way.

Have a great weekend!
