We first met Jo & Roy a number of years ago, when we were both showing our males off Suzanne Blake ( Sandbears kennel ) and became good friends not just at the shows. They are a lovely couple and have owned newfoundlands for around 20+ years. Roy & Jo are the type of people that do anything for anyone they will always be a very special couple to us as whilst we were going through a tough time with family problems in 2015 they were there for us. During this special time, Roy & Jo unfortunately lost their beloved boy Mack who left a huge whole in not just their lives, but their girl Angels life too and we were there for them. This special time brought us even closer together and we, at the time had the ” Sea ” litter of puppies out of another special mutual friends males who myself & also Roy had had the privilege of showing. We decided that we would give them, as Jo puts it ” The gift of life ” . Roy & Jo were then the proud new owners of Bearscove Sea Storm Bownbears aka Bradley. Bradley wasn’t given as a replacement to Mack but again as Jo says Bradley helped take their minds off their sad loss.
Roy & Jo are known in the breed as ” Bownbears ” and Roy is a former chairman of the Northern newfoundland club and are currently owned by 2 loving newfoundlands Bradley & Angel, they also have Mavis & Maud their 2 puddy cats.
