'Newfie Day!’ celebrates courageous canine from Corps of Discovery

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Washington State Parks invites the public — especially youth — to meet “Sage,” a Newfoundland dog, enjoy puppet shows and watch canine skills demonstrations during Newfie Day at Sacajawea Historical State Park. Sage is a 6-year-old Newfoundland dog who lives with her owner Erin Andersen in Wenatchee. Andersen is a member of the Pacific Northwest Newfoundland Club (PNWNC). Sage is trained in water rescue and “drafting” (cart pulling), which are tasks Seaman performed during the Corps of Discovery Expedition. During the event, Sage will demonstrate these same skills. Solarity Puppetry will perform several shows, including a bilingual performance that tells the stories of Native American animal tricksters.
