Maureen Bridget Cavanaugh
January 7 1955 - April 4 2005

Maureen and Chris ,when they started Black Dog Apple Farm, also started to breed and show Newfoundlands. It was more a quest to promote this stunning breed, than a business. Each Newfie, from Tyche to Rosebud, had a place in Maureen's heart and they never failed to bring a smile to her lips.
