My name is Destry Newman. I have lived in the Shawnee and Tecumseh Oklahoma area my entire life. I graduated from Tecumseh High School in 1991 and obtained my bachelors degree from Southern Nazarene University in 2011. My wife Jill and I have been married for 29 years. God blessed us with 3 wonderful children. Tanner and his wife Lauren, Alicen and her husband Jarad and Destynee, or as I call her the puppy whisper. We have two grandchildren who call us Poppy and Honey and we absolutely adore, Noah and Emberlynn. Early in life I was involved in 4-H and had a love for animals. During that time I took the opportunity to travel in both Oklahoma and Texas competing in dog obedience and showmanship with my sheltie, Beau Jangles. In high school, my best friend had a black lab named Annie. I loved that dog and I bought my first lab in 2009 and the rest I would say is history. I don’t think you will find a more loving, smart and fun dog then the Labrador Retriever.
