Susan and Gordon Dorsey became enamored with Chesapeake Bay retrievers as a result of owning (or more correctly - being owned by) Jasper, our first Chessie. We had black and chocolate labs for a long time and in 1997 introduced them to Jasper. Susan had wanted to participate in Field work of some type, but a tremendous amount of travel with work, moving overseas twice and in the states many more times just got in the way. Finally we found Morgen, our first Chessie female and began training for Hunt Tests.
Morgen and Susan reached their goal, with help from many, as CH HRCH Morgen MH, WD RA CGC has been a wonderful teacher and team member!
Since reaching that goal, Parker has qualified UKC Hunting Retriever Champion, Master Hunter and QAA at the 2016 Field Trial Specialty. Both Nuke and Aegis have already Qualified All Age (QAA) in AKC Field Trials. Nuke and Morgen achieved their Grand Champion Titles. Piper achieved her CH in the ring and earned a second place in the Qual at the ACC 2017 Field Trial Specialty. Rudder received a JAM at the ACC Qualifying at the 2017 Field Trial Specialty and Rudder has two Majors in the ring and just needs a few points to achieve his CH designation.
