My old girl is slowing down, she is 11, has one bad hip and one that was totally replaced 8 years ago. She is still getting ducks, not at break neck speeds, actually very slow which is fine, but it is time to start looking.

I am currently debating between another chessie and a chocolate lab, but leaning toward another chessie. Does anyone know of a litter or two due in the next year or so. There is not a hurry. I know the selection of chessie's locally is pretty small.

As far as labs, if I go that route, I want a big dog, not one of those fast little field trial dogs, I would like a 70lb+ dog.
