    panagenics Shampoo evaluation

    I thought I would see how everyone is feeling about this shampoo now that some of us have been using it for a few weeks. My two cents follows: I have used it every week on both my 22 month and my 16 week Newfs. It does speed up the drying. I have used the conditioner and have not had any...

    I don't frequent this section

    I have been on NN for over a year and I have totally avoided this section after the first month because the stories of passing Newfs was too much for me to read about when I was just beginning my journey with my pup. For what ever reason, today I sat and read through several postings and...

    Noises dogs make when swimming

    I take Scarlet to a local lake for swimming and retrieving. I noticed that when she is swimming with the toy in her mouth, she makes a slight little whimper noise with each breath.
