    WARNING: Disturbing Newfy pictures

    I'm sorry about alarming you but if you're squeamish about seeing neglected and abused Newfs, you may not want to see these pictures.

    Setting the record straight

    I've gotten more than a few emails regarding this picture featured at my site and I just want to say - NO, my husband is not doing anything "perverted" with our dog and NO he is not naked!! As you can see, he is a weight-lifter. He wears gym shorts that are, well...short...and as a result, our...

    Shave and a haircut...two bits!

    Just brought Bear back from his yearly shaving to cut out all the old, dead fur so a new coat can grow in for the Spring. He hates me. Nani just finished the rinsing bath we gave her and the mud residue in the tub is not to be believed! Anyway, these are two of my "kids" - 11 year old chow, Bear...

    Brother, can you lend me a story?

    Well I've finally caved in and started another website. I'll be honest; the previous one I had was pure nonsense. I had this whole internet "Goddess" persona and I even had an online job application if you wanted to be a slave at The Temple (the name of my old website) and...well, I needn't bore...

    My first question! Woo hoo!

    After everything I've read and everyone I've spoken with about Newfies, you'd think this subject would come up - sterilization. But alas, no, so here's my question: How long do I need to wait before getting Nani spayed? She turns 10 weeks tomorrow. I brought her to see my family vet today to...

    Wow. There have been quite a few heart-wrenching stories lately, I thought I'd try to cheer you guys up with a little home movie Mr. Kanela made of Nani and the backyard sprinklers.
