It takes far more people than one would realize to run a successful show and breeding kennel. This page is a special thank you to recognize those who make Tempest Newfoundlands a winning crew!
Tempest General Manager: Kirsten Tomlinson - official kennel sitter, feeder, helper, and organizer - it's amazing how little we can accomplish when Kirsten is not there to keep us on track
Tempest Beauty Director: Karen Hansen - trimming, combing, brushing, grooming, handling - Karen does it all and she always looks gorgeous herself while she does it!
Tempest Head of Social Services: Brenda Miele Soares - you would not believe how often we need Brenda to tell us that we aren't crazy (or are we?)
Tempest Official Photographer: Gayle Littlefield - any time a Tempest Newf is in the ring, Gayle is taking a beautiful photo! Thank you Gayle - we couldn't have a great website without you!
Tempest Puppy Crew: Sam and Margie Petsch - it takes more than two people to keep an eye on the puppies 24/7 and we absolutely couldn't do it without our official puppy watchers - thanks Mom and Dad!!!
Tempest Executive Directors at Large: Ashley and Livy - this is an important role that involves notifying everyone of any squirrels who are at large in the vicinity. Livy takes over while Ashley is napping.
