The ancient sport of newfie-wrestling

DevonBear Promotions are proud to present an evening of newfie-wrestling from the garden at Coombe Leigh. Here the two participants are evenly matched, and although the fight was energetic neither party sustained injury during the making of this video. Although the outcome was unclear I am inclined to nominate Ben as winner, due to the copious amounts of dog hair, slobber and mud he succeeded in plastering over Rory during their match. (Well, no one said newfie-wrestling was completely without risk!)

Gorgeous trio at the end. The children loved this film too. I'm left with two questions though:

1. Who was wagging who?

2. Does Rory still have both of his arms? Ben's got such big teeth!

Really lovely film. xxPM

Hi preseli mags - no I'm not sure what Rory was doing with Ben's tail either. As he had consumed at least a bottle of wine he might just have been trying to remain on his feet! And yes, he does have both arms still - Ben is sooo gentle.

Thanks for kind comment.

Wrestling . . . that was just a lively cuddle and a lot of fun it looked for both dog and human.
