The mission of the Newfoundland Club of Northern California is to encourage and promote the breeding, understanding, and appreciation of the Newfoundland dog, and to perform and to encourage such activities as will bring its natural qualities to perfection, including draft work and water rescue.


President’s Message

NCNC members and their dogs had another very busy month. As I submit this column, the NCNC Regional Specialty in Dixon is about to happen on Friday, October 24, 2014. So, I don’t have the results yet, but they will be published when available. Good luck to everyone!

NCNC members and their dogs were active in the conformation, obedience and rally rings. (Show results are listed elsewhere in the Newfspaper.) Here are a few highlights: George (Jackson, Latchaw, Casler, Anderson), Bordeaux (Cramer), Nova (Maggy) and Tucker (Sayer) all earned Best of Breed wins in local shows. George took a Group 2. My own Ready qualified twice in Rally Excellent B. Congratulations to all!

Exciting News — Ways & Means is starting up, again, periodically offering logo items by pre-order. (See a separate item in the NewfsPaper and on the NCNC website.)

We are in a very busy time of year. Besides the recently completed Water Test and the Regional Specialty, the Fall Draft Test will be here soon on Sunday, November 16, near Dixon (I still need more stewards!); and the NCNC holiday party and club meetings will be Saturday, December 6. Check the Calendar section of the NewfsPaper or the NCNC website for more details. I hope to see you there.

Have fun with your Newfs!
