News~~2004


DECEMBER - 2004

Unfortunately my 33 year marriage, as well as the era of "Moonfleet" as a breeding kennel has come to an end. Most of my breeding stock went on to other kennels.

Thanks to all those people who were so concerned, for the phone calls, the e-mails, the kind notes, etc.

Although I will not be breeding on a large scale, "MOONFLEET" and what I (Donna) have worked to accomplish will live on through: Golden Oaks Newfoundlands (Scholten); Sangar Newfoundands (Rompot); Full Sail Newfoundlands (Webb); Watchbear Newfoundlands (Fashempour); Iron Range Newfoundlands (Hytinen); Oberon Newfoundlands (Heinz), and Sea Warrier Newfoundlands (Draper).

There is a new star in the heavens today....Our beloved "Arnold" lost his battle with lymphoma. He was diagnosed with the disease on October 31, 2003. Initially, we had a couple of very rocky weeks, while getting his medication dosage regulated. Arnold then regained his appetite and love of life. He enjoyed his last months, each day, getting out into one of the exercise yards, being sure to water each of "his" trees.

We are so grateful for the 4 extra months we had with our wonderful "Narnoo". He left the world, cradled in our arms, with his best friend Jessica holding his precious face.
