As one of the most beautiful and elegant of Giant Breed Dogs, THE NEWFOUNDLAND is classified as a Working Breed, capable of covering a lot of ground and pulling heavy carts as well as rescuing a person or a stranded boat in deep water. While observing the side gate of the dog in the show ring, one should notice a tremendous reach and drive as the dog propels itself across the ground with his large frame and well-developed muscles. The gate should be smooth and appear effortless while the tail functions as a rudder and should not be curled over the back like that of a Malamute. The Newfoundland has a strong shoulder, well-muscled rear assembly and straight top line which is covered with a long dense coat. These photos are a primary example of a strong mature Newfoundland capable of demanding work.
Thank you Terri Muro for your excellent photography.

Hats Off!!! to the Chicago Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup in Ice Hockey 2010!!! And a special Hats-Off to Antti Niemi, the Finnish Goaltender for the Chicago Blackhawks who worked his way up from Juniors and the AHL to show his talent and determination facing countless pucks to win the Stanley Cup for Chicago. Having had a son as a Goaltender in Junior Hockey in California and Canada, I know what a tremendous effort this has been for Mr. Niemi and what a fabulous job he has done for the Blackhawks team. He deserves his MVP status for the Stanley Cup, for without his astute attention to where the puck was at all times, there would have been many more goals. Niemi, your talent and athleticism pushed your team to the top. A jolly good Hats Off to you and your team. Competition is more than just winning.
