Jade has been with us for almost two years now. And much has changed since we first adopted her. We added another (human) baby to our family about 10 months after she joined us and then we moved about 400km north to Sudbury, Ontario in Dec 2012.
Jade has taken all the changes completely in stride. She had a great time this winter with all the snow.
Her personality is so friendly and calm that we decided to have her tested to become a St. John’s Ambulance therapy dog. She passed with flying colours and will start visits very soon. Most of her initial work will be in senior residences but hopefully once she gets enough experience she will also start to do some school visits etc. She loves people of all ages. And everyone loves our gentle giant, Jade.
Here are some recent pictures of Jade. We call her nanny Jade because she insists on following the baby around. Although that might be more for the potential food that he likes to throw off his tray, more than actually taking care of the baby ;).
Synchronized Newf Walking…hoping to be an Olympic sport in 2018 Winter Games!

I hope this email finds everyone at Newf Friends well! We couldn’t be happier with our decision to add Jade to our family in Sept 2011.
