    Photo Challenge 287 - As far as the eye can see.

    This challenge is about landscapes that are "as far as the eye can see". My examples are set in the countryside and the Adirondacks but cityscapes could also be applicable, just depends on the perspective. Good luck and have fun. Cascade Mountain - ADK, USA Tuscany in Winter

    Photo Challenge 284 - Candids

    Since my baby boy is graduating from high school I've been looking at old photos and just love the unstaged unplanned candids photos the best. So this challenge is about letting personality shine through. Have fun! Examples: "Packing the car." "Nature Boy" "What are you looking at?"

    Contagious Canine Cancer?

    Interesting but scary article. Clearly the article is lacking in details but on its face value it gives me another reason to avoid dog parks...

    Newbie Newf Lessons

    As many NN members know we adopted Monty (Muppet Dog) from Newf Friends at the end of September 2013. I come from a very dog friendly family so we pretty much knew what to expect. However... #1 Lesson - Never eat food in your car in front of your newf. It can get really messy. #2 Lesson -...

    Cart Training - Where to start?

    I'm interested in training Monty to do some carting or pulling for recreational purposes. Where should I start? Are there any good books on the subject and resources for a harness?

    Thinning Scissors?

    What type of thinning shears would people recommend? I was not happy with the selection at the pet store. I was thinking about going to a beauty supply store or ordering something. Also are they used just like regular scissors?
