Return to Top Show Winners



Top Winning Newfoundland 1984

CH Tarbell's Boaz

by Ruth March

WHERE DOES ONE BEGIN in telling of my childhood fantasy which became a reality? For ten years I have bred Newfoundlands. During this time I have been fortunate in having the guidance and encouragement of good friends. Going against the odds we showed two beautiful ladies, Am. Can. Ch. Jerusha of NewtonArk and Ch. Kuhaia's Tarbell of NewtonArk, the latter being the mother of my dear Boaz. The girls trotted out with "Uncle Alan" and both were most Best of Opposite winners for several years. The competition was great, with many outstanding beautiful males out there. There were other ladies in our kennels who also came to their championship.
But, when was I to have a male worthy of going into the show ring with so many magnificent males being campaigned?

On Dec. 8, 1981, Ch. Kuhaia's Tarbell (Alki) whelped a litter sired by Ch. Mogen of Newton-Ark. Boaz appeared. I can honestly tell you that he was a beautiful puppy from the moment of birth. His brothers and sisters were also big beautiful pups, but he was something special.

When Boaz was 8 months old we decided to introduce him to the show ring. Norman Frazer was courageous enough to handle this big, happy fellow that day at Putnam KC. Boaz thought that this must be a fun thing to do and acted like a big oaf. It didn't take long for him to realize that it was his stage and the ham in him enjoyed every moment in the ring. This has never changed.









On May 13, 1983, at Central NYKC at the age of 18 months Boaz finished with a Group 3. By the time he reached his second birthday he had accumulated many Best of Breed and Group wins. Shortly after his birthday he was off to the Florida circuit and was top working dog, including two "Best in Show" wins.
Since that time the group wins have been numerous. Last year at our National Specialty in Colorado, Boaz was a Select dog. At this writing he is Number One Newfoundland for 1984 (Rutledge Rating Nov. '84 Independently Tabulated).

In late 1984 Boaz sired beautiful puppies who we hope will inherit his beauty and personality; there are more litters expected this spring.
My dreams have come true. I have a big beautiful male Newfoundland who enjoys the show ring as much as he enjoys the girls. He loves to travel and to room with "Uncle Alan" while on tour.

1984 was a busy and successful year for Boaz. He will continue to be campaigned in 1985; Westminster, the National Specialty in Windsor Locks and wherever "Uncle Alan" wants to show him. The joy Boaz has given our household is immeasurable; his happiness permeates our home. Is it too much to fantasize again for another Newfie like him?
