    Notable
    Ken will be running 2 dogs in the 2004 GOG Big Air event. The dogs, Dash and Sly, are both Chesapeake Bay retrievers. Ken loves the Chesapeake breed and all of his dogs have been Chessies. The dogs' primary function is being good retrieving dogs, Big Air is just a hobby.

    Quotable
    "Chesapeake's are not for everyone. Their number one purpose for us is waterfowling, the rest is icing on the cake. We are as devoted to them as they are to us".
