    It's That TIME!!!

    Hi everyone, Monday Hagrid goes in to get wacked. Poor baby I feel so bad but we are sort of looking forward to it. He will be 14 months. We are a little tired of him running away every time he sees anything that resembles female. He's fine and so well behaved until his weenie pops out and...

    Oh MY GOD~!

    Hello everyone, Sorry for being absent. My tail bone is slowly healing and I can sit on my knees only for short periods. So here goes. I am starting to hate taking Hagrid for walks. I think I know What a BIG DOG in seven different languages. And they say it when I pass by like I can't hear...

    Any other Newfs limp?

    Hagrid is a very energentic, playful 7 month old. If he sees something he'll bolt and make a run for it. we can't believe how fast he can go from a standstill into a run and he's fast. In the last 3 weeks he's developed a limp on his right paw. It's difficult because he will run fine, jump ok...

    To go to class? or not to go?

    I am wondering if I really need to go to doggy training. My 5 month old will sit, stay, sort of come of leash, play dead, shake , go down when told. We have even taught him to wait. It's funny when we do that. We love the wait command. In fact our kids do it for the plain fun of seeing him...

    looking for newfie playmates near San Francisco

    Hi, Is there anyone who is close to San Francisco who might want to get their newfs to play occasionally. We don't have any large breed dogs close by and it would be great for my pup to play with one. Lily.

    First thunderstorm

    Today Hagrid experienced his first thunderstorm here in the old west coast. we don't very many of these. Poor little 70 pound ball of fur, made a leaping dive under the kitchentable. Not even food can coax him out. so here I am still under the table with him on my computer. He makes me laugh!!!!

    Finally falling in love!

    Hi everyone, just checking in. I haven't been talking to anyone because I felt truly embarrassed. Everyone talks about how they love their newfs on sight but I didn't. He was such a pain in the butt, always needy, crying for attention, teeth on everything, chasing the cat, the rabbits the...

    Help for trimming nails

    Can somebody let me know how to trim my pups nails. My last dog I easily could see the vein but with my newfie it is entirely black. Is it best for me to take him to the vet or can I learn to do this on my own. Should I only cut when I hear them clanking on the floor. I'm terrified of hurting him.

    Hagid's vet visit

    Hagrid went to the vet today and he came through with flying colors. The people swooned when he came in the door. He was carried in upside down with paws up holding his favorite stuffed animal. Needless to say he came out with hundreds of kisses. The vet did not give me a hard time about the...

    Beach cleanup

    Hi everyone! Just curious. When you go to the beach does your Newfie track in lots of sand from his fur, or do your wash him every time. We live next to the beach and it would be nice to take him down there everyday. How do I keep him clean with such a thick coat? Lily

    Should I consider Insurance?

    We never got doggie insurance for our last sweet dog and when he started having problems we were in shock at how much vet bills could be. Does anyone here actually have insurance? Would I be smart if I should consider looking into one?
