To start the new year off I thought it would be a good idea to get this blog a little organized. I’ve been writing this blog for over 8 years now. I’ve covered many topics and shared an abundance of stories but sometimes they get lost.

I do my best to use this platform to help and educate as much as I can. It’s one small way that I can hopefully contribute to better the future of the Newfoundland breed.
