Newfoundlands - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

THREE Counties managed judging in outdoor rings despite the grim weather forecast! Our judge (for his second time) was Mr J McKay, and a blast from the past for those who remember him showing his own dogs, in particular the lovely Guy, who was a favourite of mine.      Continuing his winning ways with DC...

Newfoundlands - week 24Updated : 09/06/2017

SOUTHERN Counties had Renee Sporre-Willes from Sweden doing our breed for the third time in the UK (though was a change from the original appointed judge), but has done Newfs extensively across Europe.      Her BOB came from LB, Lindley’s Polish import Sensitivity Bliss Nikita at Lindgreave, a firs...

Newfoundlands - week 23Updated : 02/06/2017

BATH HAD a last minute change of judge when Peter Radley had to withdraw from his appointment. I have not heard any news but I hope he is well and that this was a temporary blip. The nominated replacement was Johan Juslin from Finland, who judged Southern Counties last year and caused some controversy when he withheld in 50 ...

Newfoundlands - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

SKC SAW Willie Dobbin making the relatively short journey over from Ireland to award CCs for the sixth time in the breed. DCC and BOB was the currently unstoppable Ch Merrybear D’Artagnan, getting his 12th CC, but also gaining favour with Sue Pollock-Yule and winning the group, before reaching his personal best with a ...

Newfoundlands - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

OPEN SHOW news from the northernmost location this week! Bill and Diane Geddes’ Scotiabear Rassay (Ruby) was BOB and G4 at Ross and Cromarty under Mrs I Green (Iolair). Fortunately, both Ruby and her housemate, Max, won their respective AV working classes, so there was no sulking between them on the journey home! Are t...

Newfoundlands - week 20Updated : 10/05/2017

BIRMINGHAM National was the latest champ show and I think us Newf owners can afford to be a little smug! Group placings throughout!      Awarding CCs for the first time in our breed was hound specialist Ben Reynolds-Frost. DCC and BOB went to ‘on-a-roll’ Chapman’s Ch Merrybear D’A...

Newfoundlands - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

WELKS champ show saw Frank Kane doing our breed for the third time. On a definite roll is Chapman’s Ch Merrybear D’Artagnan, winning his tenth CC and an even greater G1 under Frances Krall. What a wonderful day for them! Bentley was handled by Paddy Galvin and obviously had to return on the final day for the BIS ...

Newfoundlands - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

I WONDER how many people watched Walks with My Dog on TV the other week and saw the two Newfies who featured as part of the programme. The two dogs in question were ‘Prada’ (black) and Sancerre (w/b), owned by Phil and Cheryl Payne and were taking part in Newfs in Action training session when they were interviewe...

Newfoundlands - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

SAD TO hear from Juliet Leicester-Hope of the death of Warwick Winston just a month short of his 94th birthday. Newer breed aficionados will not remember him and his late wife, Peggy, when they showed Newfs and Pekes (the latter being Peggy’s particular interest). Warwick was a familiar figure with his fine cigars and ...

Newfoundlands - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

SOME GOOD open show results through this week.      Nicole McIntyre’s Olive (Priorscove Tinago Falls for Edbear) had a fabulous day at Consett, taking BOB under Jenny Shorer-Wheeler and a brilliant G1 under Mark Cocozza. Nicole and Olive are such a great team with both having a ‘Newfie’...

Newfoundlands - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

MANY THANKS to Jill Barker for the following report on the NNC championship show:      “What a brilliant show we all enjoyed this weekend. Everything about the day was totally awesome! We pride ourselves on the welcome and friendly atmosphere at NNC shows, and this was one of the very best. We had ...

Newfoundlands - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

HUGE apologies to the NNC for my error in stating that it was their first year with a novelties stand at Crufts! When, in fact, I actually remember them having a stand there in the past! Neville Lee kindly let me know that he can verify this as he was involved with running the stand! I’d like to call it a blonde moment...

Newfoundlands - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

LITTLE to report here this week in terms of show results. I see that several Newfs have done well in group competition but unfortunately the owners have not given me details to include here.      Many thanks to Alison McVea for the following: “Now back to our side of the water and the show season k...

Newfoundlands - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

WITH CRUFTS now over, I’m sure everyone extends a huge congratulations to Lyn and Terry Chapman whose Ch Merrybear D’Artagnan (Bentley) won DCC and BOB under Delia Sarson and G1 under Meg Purnell Carpenter where he was expertly handled by one of his breeders, Paddy Galvin. It was lovely to see Lyn, Bentley and Pa...

Newfoundlands - week 11Updated : 09/03/2017

WHAT A great ‘hatrick’ for Team Newgraden who are on a roll at the moment!      Following on from last week’s news, Mr and Mrs Main’s brown girl, N Bootylicious won BNSC, G1 and BIS under Iain Shaw (Honeyhall) at Irvine. The following day Angela Moir’s 14 month old black boy...

Newfoundlands - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

THE NC open show had a bumper entry of 71 which exceeds quite a few championship show entries these days. The judge was Maggi Bryant (Rottweiler and Leonberger specialist) of the well known Panelma kennel.      BD, BIS and Best Black in Show was Forster and Cockerill’s Merrybear Frere Jacques (from...

Newfoundlands - week 9Updated : 22/02/2017

GOOD NEWS of another JW – this time, Jo Cameron’s German Import, Nandobears I’m What I’m Camnoire, who is having a great run at the moment. She joins the list of dogs who achieved this award very early on in their showing career. Her half-sister, Pam Leech’s Del Oso’s Just In Love was also...

Newfoundlands - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

WELL, HOW exciting it was to see Willow (owned by Jason and Mel West) on The Secret Life of Dogs! I think it’s safe to say that she portrayed the ideal character and demonstrated her ‘four wheel drive’ in the water. I found this programme very informative especially with regards to the ‘right pawed&rs...

Newfoundlands - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

NO CHAMP shows at the moment, but some nice open show results from the Northern half of the country.      Anne Leitch’s Seafar Last Tango On Paris (Brando) was BOB under John Longmore ((Slippybears) who has been in the breed for many years, so nice to see him judging now) and G3 under Debbie Stansb...

Newfoundlands - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

MANY THANKS to Alison McVea for the following: “No shows this week here in Ireland. I’m just trying to get everything prepared for Molosser breeds first open show and Molosser of the Year events on Feb 3, as secretary it’s all go, but delighted at the response we have had.      “O...
