The sunshine is coming out and it’s beginning to warm up a bit here in the Pacific Northwest. This change often means people are starting to get busy. There’s just something about this time of year that sparks motivation and excitement. People are out training with their dogs, bringing the draft cart out, maybe thinking about water work, or just enjoying a nice day with our furry companions.
After watching people enjoying the recent grooming seminar, I’ve been thinking about our club. Although we may be at different junctions with our dogs, we all have something really special in common: We love the breed, we love our dogs, and we enjoy supporting one another. With the National in April, the Draft Test just around the corner in May, and the Water Test in September, I look forward to seeing many of you out there with our dogs training, sharing pictures, volunteering, or cheering others on.
I hope you will take advantage of the training groups, seminars, activities, and the information and camaraderie that your fellow members have to share.
- If you are just getting started and don’t know how to do something, please ask!
- If you have a talent you’d like to share, please let us know!
- If you’d like to volunteer, we’d gladly welcome it!
Whatever you are doing, sharing your life with a Newfoundland is a beautiful journey; enjoy the ride!
