Bydand Starting Over at Tyburn Woods (Sidney)
Sid started his show career at the Toledo show in July 2009 and because I did not think I could show him myself as we had always used handlers for our Newfoundlands my sister in law showed him the first day and let's just say it was less than stellar. The second day my friend Jen Haugland showed him and he took second out of a very competitive class. After that I showed him myslef and he actually showed very well and he finished his junior championship in Toledo of 2010. At his next show, in Richmond in June 2010, in the winners class Sid won his first Award of Merit ("AOM".) At his next show after that in Seattle in September of 2010 Sid won Best of Breed! At the next show after that which was Nationals in Virginia Beach in October of 2010 Sid won another AOM in a very competitive winners ring. He finished his championship in Florida in early 2011. Sid is now retired and living a very good life with us.
Sid does not carry for curly or satin. He scored a 98 on his confirmation evaluation. We have completed his color testing and he is BB KBKy Ee atat. Sids hips are good and he is 10 3/4 inches and since being neutered Sid has gained some weight and although he is well over 13.5 pounds which he never was before he looks and feels much better.
