Chesapeake Bay Retriever - Bailey

Bailey - the Gentle Gentleman Chessie 
Loved by 3 generations, Bailey was a great family dog. He took extra care to be gentle with the littlest members of the family and always found a way to connect with everyone he met. Known for his magnetic smile, Bailey looked great rockin' a pair of sunglasses and chillin' with the family after and fast paced game of fetch.

I never got to personally meet Bailey, but through the ten photos I referenced to create this Legacy Portrait I discovered Bailey's playful spirit and deep hearted devotion to his family.

I'm certain that anyone who has ever known a Chesapeake Bay Retriever would agree that his personality is as yummy as his chocolatey coat.
