Memory



On the 24th September ' 14, we had to say goodbye to our Sammie. It was the last thing we could do as a thanks for 10 great years of unconditional loyalty and friendship for Sammie. His great willpower and perseverance fight the physical complaints which were becoming increasingly difficult for him. Life should be no burden and torment for our Sammie. Despite his still-speaking eyes and happy wagging tail, we had to make the difficult decision to let go Sammie at the age of 10 years and 7 months.

He now has joined with his father Captain Moritz and his Hoogveen family. We have lost a fantastic Newfoundland and a friend. His typical appearance, pitch black coat, loyalty and love of nature made him a Newfoundlander Pur sang.

In the last 6 years Sammie formed a magnificent team of Newfoundland bears together with Teddybär. We were so proud of these two.

The last burden... it had to be... but remains so hard! Nevertheless, it was a decision only based on love and gratitude for many years of trusty friendship. Dear Sammie - thank you for everything!





Friends forever

Vidar Sammie is our adult male who is in many ways still a youngster.
His true soft expression and lovely character attracts many people and wins the people’s hearts.
His deep black and shiny coat is very beautiful and very easy to maintain.


Sammie is special to us from the first day that he came to live whit us, just 5 months old.
Daily, we enjoy his presence, and for Sammie it is of main importance, to be present in each event.
Unto his way to a mature Newfoundland, he has developed into a soft, friendly, very typical Newfoundland.

His character is stable, soft, quiet and trustworthy.
All are excellent ingredients to entrust him raising a puppy.
From the sideline we enjoy how Sammie helps the young Teddybär to explore the big wide world
And how he takes over the role of Socializing teacher.





An exception on our website: Wim with his Newfoundlands on a picture.
Usually he is the one who visualizes the special moments with his camera.



Most pictures on our website are then also made by Wim.
Taking pictures is Wim’s biggest hobby, next to our Newfoundlands.
Trough these pictures you can get to know our Newfs, each on their site.





My Friend

Who nuzzles up to me, when I am so sad?
Who comforts me and makes me glad?
When I am lonely, who is always near?
To lick my hand and give me cheer?
Who keeps me company upon a walk?
And always listens when I talk?
Who's shining eyes will love me till the end?

My Newf, of course, my trusty friend.


The best friends Renate and Sammie
