    half raw?

    Wondering if anyone feeds a raw meal once per day and kibble once per day? Understand that kibble and raw don't mix at a single meal b/c of differing digestive requirements but read that some have success with one of each per day . Thanks in advance for any constructive feedback. Barry

    Sunday last week was 25 degrees, sunny and March 2nd which means early trout season in our area. Lewis and Token went fishing with me. Am sure some of the trout thought they were being invaded by clumsy bears when the dogs swam through the deep pools, waded through the riffles and otherwise...

    We took Lewis and Token to the Madison Winter Festival where there is hockey, a short tubing course, X-country ski racing and snow and ice sculpting. Needless to say the Newfs were a huge hit and took all the attention in the wonderfully laid back Newfy manner. Was able to get a photo of...

    It's all amusing until Lewis tries to leave tub and locks himself in the kids bathroom and his butt is always a little wet in after some quality tub time.
