The NNC Extravaganza was a great success and all those people that attended including all the public spectators that were there over the weekend enjoyed the magnificent sights of the "Working Newfoundlands Team" demonstrating the dogs abilities in the water. The grooming seminar was well supported, and the companion dog show attracted public interest on the Sunday. The sun shone on both days, albeit for a short sharp downpour on Sunday morning. A good time was had by all.
The organising teams did an outstanding job of putting this event together - WELL DONE!
The report of the weekend together with a selection of pictures have now been added. There are also links to Facebook where further pictures can be found.
Say "Hello" to the new Northern Newfoundland Club Mascots - Billy & Benny who are searching for
stardom. They were first seen at the recent Newfoundland Extravaganza.
Our Honorary Secretary, Jill Barker brought these two little fellas back from her recent travels to Newfoundland.
Would you please give them a big NNC welcome, but be careful as all this fame will go to their heads and before you know it they will need an agent.
You will also find these little fellas on the NNC Facebook page where you can 'like' them.
