Two Apologies from our Newfletter Editor

"My unreserved apologies to Del, Hedd, Nzo & Moneypenny Richards for putting Moneypenny's photo over Nzo's name (and mis-spelling it) in "Dogs of Yesteryear" in the last issue of our Newfletter. Dogs of Yesterday was not intended to be an In Memoriam page, just a look at important show dogs which have had a positive impact on the breed. Unfortunately, people mistakenly thought that Hedd and Del had lost Nzo, which caused considerable upset. Again, my apologies for this misunderstanding and BIG apologetic hugs to Nzo & Moneypenny."


"I would also extend my apologise for any upset caused by the "Stop Press" article. I understood that all this was common knowledge by the time the Newfletter went to print and assumed that only club members would have access to the magazine. I was obviously wrong. My only intention was to thank sincerely everyone pulling together at such short notice. I excluded several people as I understood they might have access to the man in question and didn't want them to be in an awkward position."

A New Health Study

Do Newfoundlands suffer from Epilepsy?

Well maybe, but this is something that we don't know at present. The Clinical Investigation Centre and the Epilepsy Clinic at the RVC is is working with a small animal health and wellness company to confirm the efficacy and safety of a novel diet in the management of dogs with idiopathic epilepsy being treated with phenobarbitone and/or potassium bromide. The research group have had over 20 dogs successfully complete this trial, and are now looking to recruit a further 10 dogs over the next 6 months. Click the link Flyer for more information.

Thank you to Viv Pound for forwarding this.
