Even though it's not a terribly common breed, Crew is actually our second Chessie foster. The hubs is excited because the first one we had was one of his personal favorites. Chessies look kind of like Chocolate Labs but have a much stronger personality and aren't quite so laid back. They also have a slightly wavy and oily coat in order to repel water. They were bred to swim (through ice sometimes) and retrieve things from the Chesapeake Bay, after all!
