News for 2005


12-9 Virginia - Rappahanock RC held their hunt test today in the snow and cold water!  Real chesapeake hunting sceniero for sure.  Quite a few dogs didn't care for the water but I'm proud to say that Thor did excellent with Al handling and completed Thor's JH title!  Congrats on a job well done. 4 for 4.  Redlion's Notorious JH CWC WDX at 16 months.

12-10 - new developments with the puppies!  Redlion's Not for Sale, mother of 7 five day old chesapeakes, today got 3 more!  Only they are yellow labs.  A friend called in dire need of a 2nd mom for 3 yellow lab pups as she had trouble with their mother.  They were rushed down to Gina in MD who has Sale's litter and mama Sale took them right in, so now is raising 10!  Gina, Thomas and Sale and babies are doing great!  Thanks so much for saving these Lab babies!

Nov 6 - Also running was Redlion's Notorious got his 1st leg in the JH  O/H Al Melhus.  This was the first hunt test Al has ever ran and he was dog #1 so he was very very nervous but the dog did perfect!

Nov 6 - Also running was Can Ch Redlion's Hit Doctor** Can MH JH  "Joe" got his 2nd leg in the Master Hunter!  We have had a tuff go for the last two months.  He did good work with the trainer but he and I weren't working as a team and the transition to owner takes some training also and he wasn't going on the blinds for me. But things are good finally and and we got the completion. He actually was one of a very few dogs that had no handles on all 3 test setups.  The first setup was a land triple with pheasants and two blinds up through the marks.  Of 41 only about 10 dogs didn't handle and Joe was one!

This is a note from Marj Freeman in Texas about CH Redlion's Busy Typhoon, CD RN TT BPDX+
(CH Chesarab Force of the Jedi x Rockycreek's Empty Pockets)  B/Jane Pappler

7-16 Bexar KC -  (supported show of Alamo Area Chesapeake Club) Best of Breed under Dr. Steve Keating and Group 2 under Bettie Krause. They say that is was a prestige's win since a Chessie never places in group at this show.

7-17 Austin KC - BOB under Luiz Silva and he made the cut under Dr. Donald Sturz Jr in the group.

We won't mention Obedience!  He gave all of my friends a good laugh and I almost hit the judge in the toe with the dumbbell.  He did everything except the retrieve over the high jump.  He walked up put his head over the jump and looked at the dumbbell!  They used a conformation ring and just put new mats over it!  Needless to say He put his nose to the ground between exercises and paid no attention to me!    Marj F. 
"Ty"  now has his TT and from the Alamo Chesapeake Club has his backpacking titles, BPDX+.
