Rick, they sure do look like little monsters! I can take the ribbing because we do have really good product with the female. The male is just being put through the ropes so I'm not so sure of him yet, but he is coming along quite nicely. Time will tell, and I'll keep you guys updated.

Lucky you! Not only is the pup a beauty, but blue Belton long haired dalmations will probably bring big bucks on the designer dog market.

What a cutie! With our deadgrass boy people always tell me they've only ever seen brown chessies and if the "yellow" comes from labs! Interesting to say the least :lol:

I have a CBR also, and I have gotten the chocolate lab and weimeraner thing also, but the worst one was............

"Hey, what's that pit bull crossed with?" :roll:

I used to have a American water spaniel before her, and the standard question was:

"Hey, what's that poodle crossed with?" :evil: A few people with some knowledge or sense would ask if he was a Portugese water dog or a curly coated retriever..................most, however, had no clue.

Rick, I believe your pup is of the species Ursus Teddycus (Teddy Bear) :D Shur is cute.

Having had him home with us for a week, I must report that the benign picture I posted has led you to misidentify the baby beast. He's actually of the species Smilodon fatalis. Better known as the saber toothed tiger.

Rick,

Have you noticed a difference between the brown and deadgrass Chessies? Having both in the house at the same time we've noticed a huge difference. The deadgrass one is spring loaded!! I swear he can jump 5ft straight up in the air - and we don't encourage it..he just does it! He lays differently and it seems like his hips are double jointed....vet says their fine just thinks its a deadgrass thing. Any thoughts?

How's the tiger growing and getting along with the rest of the family?

Clay, I meant to ask you where you got your setter from.

I grew up with chessie's and our first one was dead-grass color and when I was about 6 years old I thought all chessie's were that color. So when we visited my cousins and they had a chocolate chessie I was shocked. My parents will still laugh at how big my eyes got when I found out chessie's come in chocolate. :lol:
