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...

Newfoundlands - week 2Updated : 04/01/2017

SO 2016 ENDED with a lovely crop of ten new UK champions – all black and an ideal ratio of five dogs and five bitches. Ladies first (and the first to be made up in 2016 was female!) Ch Cewrirdwr Llyn Geirionydd (homebred), Ch Dreamkeepers Brooklynbear’s Shania (US bred), Ch Merrybear Euphoria at Millthorpe (UK br...

Newfoundlands - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

Newfoundlands - week 49Updated : 30/11/2016

ANOTHER milestone in Newf history was the very first championship show held by the Southern NC at Stoneleigh. The two lady judges, both from USA, were awarding CCs for the first time in the UK – with Betty McDonnell (Kilyka) doing males and Debra Thornton (Cypress Bay) doing bitches, and referee, our own home grown Fra...

Newfoundlands - week 48Updated : 28/11/2016

NO CHAMPIONSHIP shows at the moment but at the open shows, it seems to have been a G2 kind of weekend!      Dani Ball tells me that her Newgraden’s Llori Nanya was BOB at Burton on Trent under Ali Walden and G2 under Joe Smith.      Suzanne Archer’s young Tallisbay Ti...

Newfoundlands - week 45Updated : 04/11/2016

MIDLAND Counties had all-rounder, Stuart Mallard doing our breed for the seventh time in the UK. Newer exhibitors may not know that he is also a talented artist and I can spend hours just gazing at some of his work of both pedigree dogs and wildlife!      DCC, his fourth, BOB and a respectable G3 under...

Newfoundlands - week 44Updated : 28/10/2016

THE 41ST Newfoundland Club championship show was held at the KC building Stoneleigh with judge, Ian Sexton taking the centre of the ring for the fourth time in this breed (although he awards CCs in other breeds too). Exhibitors today tend to classify him as an ‘all-rounder’ when he has owned and successfully show...

Newfoundlands - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

SOME FURTHER news from Dani Ball following her Good Citizen achievements in last week’s notes. Her brown girl Newgradens Llori Nanya won BOB and G1 at Clitheroe under Kirstie Forster and BIS from 315 dogs under Richard Morris (a gundog specialist primarily).      Apologies to Sue Easton and David...

Newfoundlands - week 42Updated : 13/10/2016

AT SOUTH Wales, Jill Barker was awarding CCs for the 13th time in the UK. Her DCC and BOB was a first for Land’s French import, Just For You Du Domaine De Flambeau, who came from limit. He also has a few RCCs so it’s a case of progress in the right direction for this boy! RDCC, from open, was Julie Sheridan&rsquo...

Newfoundlands - week 41Updated : 11/10/2016

SAD NEWS from Rob and Cheryl Hobbs to say that they have lost their lovely Gracie (Ch Sheridel Nerissa of Alphabears). Please see news pages for an obituary.      Thankfully, some happy news too – this time from Claire Baldock who was at the recent Paris Nord Villepinte international show with Me...

Newfoundlands - week 40Updated : 28/09/2016

BELFAST attracted an entry of 28 this year for Richard Kinsey, which was a considerable increase on last year’s entry. A few mainland exhibitors braved the ferry crossing in what has been described as ‘choppy’ weather!      Winning his 13th CC with BOB was Blake’s Ch Sandbears B...

Newfoundlands - week 39Updated : 23/09/2016

DARLINGTON gave us another male champion (the fifth) and the tenth champion of the year so far. The judge was Pam Leech awarding CCs for the second time.      The ‘golden boy’ came from limit and is Farrar’s Belgian import Cape Lewisporte Nirvana at Darkpeak (aren’t the Belgian ...

Newfoundlands - week 38Updated : 15/09/2016

MANY THANKS to Alison McVea who covered for me while I have been away in Canada for over a fortnight.

Newfoundlands - week 37Updated : 09/09/2016

THANKS to Alison McVea for the following news and for covering for me while I have been away in Canada with little or no signal.      That’s the Irish Circuit over for another year and what a way to end it for the Newfs. At Tralee Newf judge was Mr F La Rocco (Italy). DGS and BOB was Chapman&rsqu...
