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’...

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...

Newfoundlands - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

MANCHESTER saw Graham Hill awarding CCs in the breed for the first time. DCC, his second, was Blake, Beck and Wagner’s Am Ch Mainland Anchorbay Now I Know My ABC’s from the open class. RDCC was second in open, Coldwell’s Ch Zentaur I Will Wait.      BCC and BOB at the tender age of 12 m...

Newfoundlands - week 3Updated : 13/01/2017

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

THE LAST show of the year, LKA, saw Gary Coldwell awarding CCs for the sixth time.      DCC, his seventh, and BOB was Chapman’s Ch Merrybear D’Artagnan. RDCC, his second, from limit was Hunt’s Sakaribear Solent Tide.      BCC, her fourth, was Dobbin’s Drea...

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...
