Happy Endings...

3/10: Update. By this week all the puppies will be in their new homes, have names, be free. We're keeping a boy from Elsa and Solomon whom we are naming Ben, a girl from Bumper and Solomon, who we are naming Rosie, and a boy from Celeste and Gus who we are naming Blackjack. We have placed them in wonderful, wonderful homes. We are all very lucky.
 Everyone has adapted beautifully. We are very thankful for our new owners.

...New Beginnings
Puppies are landing in their new homes!

June 23: Newfoundland Regional specialty in New Paltz
At the Newfoundland Regional specialty in New Paltz there were 60 newfs.
There were two events we took part in: puppy sweeps and regular confirmation. The puppy sweeps included 6-9, 9-12 and 12-l8 month old puppies.
Ben won his 6-9 class, then went on to take best of opposite sex of all the puppies: big ribbon. Rosie came in second in her class...a much older girl beat her.

In the regular competition, in which every age of newfie competes, Ben and Rosie both won their  6 -9 month classes. Then all the winners of their
classes...grown up newfies as well..competed. Ben went no further in this competition, but Rosie did an gorgeous performance. Unfortunately she
started to limp (her Pano). But at the end, the judge chose the winning bitch of all the bitch classes. She pulled out the winning bitch, the reserve winner,
and as an honor pulled Rosie out.  Both our handler and our trainer said Rosie would have won the entire thing if she hadn't started to limp.  It would have
been extraordinary to have a 6 month old pup beat mature dogs...but she did beat plenty of them.  If she had won she would have earned five points.
Since you only need fifteen points to be a champion, it was a big deal. She came within a hair of winning the whole thing and we are really proud of her and Ben.

The best part of the day was that Cheffy, Reggie...who also competed and looked handsome...and Leo and Olivia and Brigus were all there cheering
their relatives on. First picture is Olivia trying to sleep as close as she could to Rosie and Ben who did not try to sleep at all.
