I would firstly like to thank the committee and the members of the Club for the invitation to judge,
Special thanks must go to the exhibitors who got their dogs ready and entered.
The weekend was a very special weekend the hospitality that I received was second to none The atmosphere at the show was very enjoyable, it was a great chance to catch up with people and friends and make some new friends along the way.
I would like to congratulate the club in its direction to include the wider Newfoundland pet community and to make people and their dogs feel welcome.
The Newfoundland world is not the most unified at the moment and it would be nice to think that some bridges could be mended along the way and people could get on a little better as it is the breed that suffers in the long term.

1st Joanne O’Driscoll , for one so young she did a great job handling her dog I could see that there is a real connection between the dog and Joanne used her bait to best advantage.
2nd Paul Whitty, just piped for the class by Joanne he handled really well and for a young man to handle a Multi Int Champion the way he did was a real credit to himself.
