Dec.26, 1999 - April 2, 2008
Tina became our first ROM in the fall of 2007.
We helped her over the bridge on April 2, 2008
And accepted her NCA ROM award at the national 2008.
Sorry, but it wasn't a happy moment, sitting in my seat, waiting to be handed the award,
all the while fighting tears, knowing Tina was physically no longer with us.
Tina is our foundation bitch, she whelped lovely pups for us.
And was a magnificent Mom!
Her name is clearly what she was and her body that of Tina Turner "a knock out"
She was large, gentle & a loving girl. If she is not kissing you or
pressing up against you, she is lying on the floor next to you.
I'd like to thank my dear friend and mentor breeder Evelyn de Reus for entrusting me with Tina Turner.
November 2007 Tina Turner has completed the requirements for a Newfoundland Club of America's Register of Merit (ROM).

A CHIC number is issued when test results are entered into the database satisfying each breed specific requirement, and when the owner of the dog (at 2 years of age) has opted to release the results into the public domain, regardless of normal or abnormal results. A breeder that states their dog has a CHIC number, does not imply normal test results, only that all the required breed specific tests were performed and the results made publicly available with owners permission. You may click on the chick Icon to visit the site and read more about CHIC.
Breed specific test for a Newfoundland are Hips, Elbows, Heart & Cystinuria. Any breeding stock should be tested prior to being used. Do not accept any excuses or stories. Ask for reports or certificates from either OFA, OVC or Penn Hip. My veterinarian is superb at reading x-rays, but they are still submitted and rated by a specialist in the orthopedic field.
