    Calza May 2, 2005 to September 20, 2014

    Unfortunately, my Calza crossed the bridge this past Saturday. It appears that some of her recent medical issues (bleeding) can be traced to a hemangiosarcoma, which took her life. She was doing okay, but not great the night before. She was acting like the 9 1/2 year old Newf that she was...

    The Relationship Between Conformation and "Attitude"

    I have heard show people talk about "attitude" in show dogs. I was wondering how it interrelates with conformation to make a winning show dog. My current Newf, Calza, has her Ch. I have rehomed other show dogs who, in my opinion, had much better conformation. I was even told before I got her...
