Following a period of ilness, a few days ago CONNIE SYMES passed away. Many of you will be aware that Connie was a very special lady, who for many years ran the Newfoundland Club's National Newfoundland Welfare Scheme. She worked tirelessly to give unfortunate dogs a second chance in life. She was a stalwart friend of the NNC and was one of the Northern Club's founding members having joined in 1984, the year the Club was formed. She was made an honorary member and was loved and respected by Newfie people everywhere. She will be sadly missed.
The funeral will take place on Thursday 24 July at 12:30pm at:
The Hurst Methodist Chapel,
No flowers but donations to dog rescue (will be announced at the funeral). There will be a wake afterwards, local to the place of the funeral and all are invited. We ask that as many Newfie people please come along and give Connie the send off that she deserves.
For any further details please contact Jenny Davie or Sandie Sharp on 01994 427891.

We have a 7yr old dog in NNC Welfare who needs a very special home. He has been with us for several months, and the right home just has not come up for him. He needs to be an only dog in a home with no cats, rabbits or anything else he can chase, preferably in a rural area so he can be walked without meeting other dogs. He is lovely and affectionate with people but will not be placed with young children.
Can you help?
If so, please contact Ros Dyer on 07766 797257 or
Kennel Club - Health Survey
You may recall that the Kennel Club undertook a Purebred Dog Health Survey back in 2004. Well 10 years on, they would like to review the changes in breed, and they are therefore inviting the breed’s club(s) to contribute to the 2014 Pedigree Breed Health survey, which is being developed in collaboration with Dr Tom Lewis.
This time they would like to actively encourage more people participate in this exciting project.
A copy of the questionnaire is avilable by clicking on this link QuestionnaireIt is expected that the results of these surveys will be made freely and publically available in a report-style publication, but data collected will remain confidential about individuals.
