    Your Newfoundland Is Very Small!

    This is what I keep hearing about my girl Mousse. I was at the vet recently and that's what the tech said. "I've never seen such a small Newfoundland". Mousse is 1 year 7 months, nearly 27? inches at her shoulders, thick boned, huge back end (she's growing and that was the most recently...

    Health Testing

    When getting the Cystinuria Testing test done by OptiGen, do the results automatically get sent to OFA? Also, how do you get your dogs health testing to post on AKC's Medical Screens section?

    Does this go on with our breed?

    I saw this article on someone's facebook page. I read it and it brought back memories of High School and several of the animal groups I'm a part of. Is the Newfoundland show world like this? So far from what I've seen on the forums, most of the people are not like this, but I've seen some...

    Groomer in for a surprise?

    I found a groomer running a special, $5.00 off per dog on your first visit. Mousse is going to get her OFA prelims done on Monday so I wanted her to be clean anyway and I haven't had the time to groom them, so it worked out perfectly. So I went to her site and talked with her via email. The...

    Ok Ok Long overdue photos and updates

    I groomed Mousse today and took some photos She's decided she doesn't want to stay in the dog run anymore. Yesterday she jumped the fence to chase a squirrel and we had someone pull over and knock saying our dog was running loose. Luckily her recall is good and she came immediately when I...

    Rash on belly

    So mousse has had this rash on and off on her belly. It's not bothering her, she's not scratching or licking or biting at it. It's just red. No bumps or anything. It's on her belly area. I am hypothesizing that it's potentially from being damp when she comes inside and laying down in her...

    Merry Christmas

    We went sledding for the first time on Christmas. Milo seemed interested but was uninterested after pulling the empty sled back and forth a few times. Practice makes perfect. He had no problem with stopping to pose for a photo.

    Some of you may have heard already through facebook but others may not have. We lost our girl this morning. From was I was told it was "bloat" but I was told it didn't include her stomach. She didn't have any gagging, throwing up, no hardened stomach, and no typical symptoms of bloat. She...

    AKC Rules Trump ADA Laws

    I'd like to share this with you guys. It was a sad day for a friend of mine who tried to attend an AKC event as a spectator accompanied by her service dog (well behaved, trained, and wearing his vest). I'm aware of the AKC's view on prong collars, but the law protects the disabled...

    Milo Saved Daddy

    Well, not really, but in the exercise, he did... almost. Yesterday is the first day we have taken him to a real beach where the water actually comes up on shore. Usually we're at the canal which has a pretty steep dropoff. There were a bunch of really friendly dogs there and Milo had his...

    What do I trim off?

    Okay so this is the first time I've done ears, but they were getting unruly and needed to be trimmed. Here's one ear done, the other not done. I was wondering if you trim the chest up to remove the fur that's sticking out and rounding out the chest better? Milo has some floof that just...

    Close Call, Not Even Safe in Your Own Yard

    Friday night, at about 2am, I let Miley out to go to the bathroom in the dog run. I went inside and sat down to continue watching tv. Then, all of a sudden about 20 minutes later, we heard a loud crash. We ran outside. My boyfriend was the first person outside. I heard him screaming "stop...
