President’s Column
Cissy Sullivan
Hi Newf Friends,
Sitting back and reflecting about our Regional Specialty, it comes to mind the old adage “It takes a
village to raise a child”. I see where a comparison can be made to the rearing and nurturing of a
club. It takes a WHOLE lot of people working together to build a strong club. I witnessed this during
the time spent preparing, organizing and presenting this venue. I hope that everyone noticed the
additional hard work that went into providing a nice hospitality area, and a GREAT Auction/brown
bag area. It was great to see more participation and effort into those areas. Without the countless
hours of volunteerism the goal of bringing this presentation to fruition would never be met. Thanks
to our Show Chair Joan Gunn, for putting together such an event. My hat is off to the MANY people
of OUR VILLAGE who worked tirelessly, and my heartfelt thanks as well.
What a line up of outstanding beautiful dogs. It was like EYE CANDY to any dog lover. My personal
thanks to all who entered, attended, and shared time at our event. I appreciate the dedication and
hard work that everyone embraces to prepare for these and all other working events.
Congratulations to everyone, you are ALL WINNERS on so many levels, and I truly hope everyone
had an enjoyable time.
I am in HIGH hopes that everyone has renewed their memberships by now, if not please contact
Mary Trauernicht. We need to keep our VILLAGE consistent as well as happily welcoming new
members.
I want to mention one of our NCNC members who does a whole lot behind the scenes and provides
us all with THIS source of information. Angela Mertens has done, and continues to do a great job
with our newsletter. She has spruced it up with more photos, and visuals that make it not only interesting to read, but provide some AHHH moments when looking at the pictures. This is a large job,
and we are fortunate to have Angela volunteer to do it for us. So my personal THANKS to Angela!
Looking forward to the Spring of the year our
club has planned for some events that will
provide great fun, great camaraderie, for both
human and canines alike. On May 10th
NEWFIEPALOOZA will once again ROCK
and KNOCK your socks off!! Each year when
I think it can’t get much better than this,
Karen and Rhonda kick it up another notch.
This year will be no exception. Details of this
awesome event held to benefit NCNC rescue

Tempting Training Treats
Ingredients:
2 1/3 cups flour, all-purpose or
. whole wheat
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup grated cheese,
. like parmesan
1 large egg
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Lotta Love Bakery
Submitted by Linda Larsen
Instructions:
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; mix well; Roll the dough
out to size of a cookie sheet; Pat the dough onto a lightly greased
cookie sheet, bringing it to the edges. Using a sharp knife or a
pizza cutter, cut desired sizes into dough (just score through). If
you're using as training treats, cut them into small pieces;
Sprinkle a little extra cheese and garlic powder if desired on
dough for flavor. Bake in a 350 degree oven about 15 minutes until
golden brown. Turn off the oven and let cool for a few hours; they
will keep hardening the longer you leave them. Break them apart;
store tightly covered or in the freezer.

2008 Regional Specialt y
On Friday, February 29 and Saturday, March 1, NCNC
held its second two day Regional Specialties. While
our entries were down a little over last year, the camaFebruary
raderie, enthusiasm and cheer reached an all time
29th &
high. Our show committee responsible for this event,
March 1st
did all possible to make it so. From our co-chair, Dona
2008
Baker, also responsible for a great banquet, Chief Ring
Stewards, Jan Danielsen (Friday), Rick Torres
(Saturday), Chief Obedience Steward, Denita Jackman,
Trophy Chair Linda Larsen (trophies were all covered)
to Hospitality Chairs, Cissy Sullivan and Tara Bertrand,
Raffle/Auction Chair Carol Thonn, to Cardiology/Cerf
Clinic Co-ordinator Ted Meeker, and Judges Hospitality Mary Trauernicht and all of those many
volunteers who pitched in to help, this was a very successful event. Our day began with enough
to fill a hungry person, coffee, rolls, and more and don’t forget cafe tables with snacks throughout
the day. The weather cooperated, exhibitors arrived and judging all proceeded smoothly. The
results of the day don’t begin to match the wonder of the many entries both in breed and obedience. Whether exhibitors won, placed or just showed, they are all winners. They love and
appreciate this marvelous breed and took the trouble to let us all see them. Again, as with all we
do, are success is measured by the dedication of our members. This was a success because
we have so many dedicated members willing to give freely of themselves. Thank you all.

this is DEFINITELY something you do not wish to miss.
Come join in on all the fun. I do not think there is another

calendars.
President’s Column (continued)
Speaking of calendars, check out our NCNC website if you ever are in need of specific information
on events. There is a section that has a month to month calendar with meeting dates, and event
dates listed. It changes frequently with new information added as it comes in. While we are on the
subject of WEBSITES, another NCNC member that needs applause and thanks is our webmaster
Karen Clancy. Karen is lighting quick with posting things for our website and keeping us up to
date. We have a great website thanks to Karen and her technological talents.
Hoping that Spring will get here sooner than later! My BEST to all of you and your FURKIDS.

As the warmer weather approaches, (hopefully soon!), it will soon be time to gear up for
water training.
Training sites for 2008 are:
Reese/Gunn residence, Harvard, IL Contact: Joan Gunn (815) 943-1492 or
[email protected]
Training dates for the Gunn/Reese pond will again be Monday morning and Wednesday
afternoon. While we hope to start up the weekend after Memorial Day, we are dependent
upon weather cooperating and drying up the excessive water currently on the site. It is
currently a lake, not a pond!
Les & Jean Morris’ residence, Antioch, IL Contact: Les Morris (847) 395-5942 or
[email protected]
Camp Shioc, Shiocton, WI Contact: Kathy Van Wie (920) 757–9709 or
[email protected]
For start dates and training times, contact the above members directly. Also coming soon:
Check the website for training times for the above locations.
Now’s the time to start boning up on that obedience!
Mark you calendars now, as back by popular
demand, Roger and Barb Frey will join us for a twoday water seminar. The dates are June 28 & 29 at the
Gunn/Reese pond.
This seminar is designed for all levels of water training
and experience. More information and a reservation
form will be contained in the next newsletter.

National Survey Results
Several months ago, NCNC asked our members to respond to a survey to determine interest
in hosting a future National.
I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all who took the time to respond to the National
Survey. Your cooperation and input are greatly appreciated!
The results of the survey are as follows:
We had approximately 16 responses (there were a few more, but they came in after
the deadline and the tally). All but one was in favor of hosting a National.
Nine respondents offered to chair committees, all were willing to work on one.
We received 3 suggestions for sites to look at.
The results of the survey have been collected and compiled in a binder for future reference
should NCNC decide to pursue hosting a future National.
Again, thank you to all who responded.
Kathy Van Wie
