Fall is a time that finds many Newfoundlands hard at work pulling pumpkins, Christmas Trees and carts full of children. Remember that community events are always a good time for us to be ambassadors for the breed and provide us with opportunities to educate the public about our Newfoundlands. If you are looking for resources to share for public education, you can download a number of informative brochures from the NCA website.
As always, we want to hear from you. Email us at any time with your comments and suggestions.

|National Dog Show Highlights Thanksgiving Festivities|
|Move over Macy's parade- the National Dog Show is fast becoming "Must See TV" for dog lovers all over the country. Just remember as you sit down to watch some of the finest dogs in America strut their stuff, keep a tight lid on those leftovers. Some things to watch out for include: turkey skin (covered with oils and spices), cooked bones, gravy, buttery side dishes, aluminum foil and plastic wrap with food residue, chocolate desserts and well meaning guests who slip your pets "a little |
treat" that could result in a big digestive upset or worse.
|Working Dog Committee|
There is an opening on the Working Dog Committee. This committee is charged with the responsibility of providing information and opportunities for Newfoundlands to continue their historical roles as working dogs. Since this committee advises the NCA Board in matters pertaining to the activities of working Newfoundlands, knowledge of these activities is required.
