    Hi Everybody

    I have not been on Newf Net since 9-17-11, that year I lost my Kody and 27 days later my sweet Dixie. We are doing fine, we have adopted/rescued a 1 yr old Austrailian Cattle Dog. Talk about a big difference, I still love Newfies. In fact I was recently informed of a 1 1/2 yr old male and I...

    Dixie had a stroke this morning and we had to put her down. It will be 4 weeks tomorrow that Kody left us, now they are together. She missed him so much. She died of a broken heart.

    Happy Birthday Dixie!

    Dixie is 9 today! The only survivor of her litter of 4, and even with her SAS and grade 4 heart murmur she is doing well. Missing her brother, Kody (RIP), who left us July 30th.

    Goodbye Kody

    We had Kody put down on July 30th. He was 10 on June 4th, and his back legs just didn't work anymore. He was on pain meds but even that wasn't helping. Dixie misses him so I have been taking her to work with me. We are trying to adjust to only having one dog. Today is Dixie's 9th Bday, I hope...

    Kody is 10 today!!!

    He made it! He is doing much better, ear infection totally cleared up and the Deramaxx is working wonders with his arthritis. Got a bath last Monday and trimmed this week. He is looking good. And most important - his beautiful personality is back!

    anyone heard from alexmaddy?

    I was searching ffor posts from MJ, my Kody is a litter mate of her Madison. Since I was not on newf net for a couple of years I lost touch with her, and I have read from her posts from Feb. 2009 two of her dogs had cancer in their legs at that time. I couldn't find any posts after that date...

    great food for sensitive dogs

    I have switched mine to Blue Diamond limited ingredient Salmon & potatoe with great success. Dixie's skin allergies have greatly improved. No wheat, corn, egg or dairy.

    knee surgery update

    well it's 10 days since I got my new knee and things are going pretty well. PT is tough and when they bend my knee past 90 degrees I could go thru the roof! That's after I've taken two heavy duty pain pills too. Have to keep it up so I have full range of motion and can ride a bike again. Dogs...

    Knee surgery Thursday (Human)

    I will be getting a new knee this Thursday, stay in the hospital until Sunday, and since my computer is upstairs I may not be able to be on here for a long time. That should leave me lots of time for rehab.

    strange situation

    Yesterday on our walk we met some people, stopped for pets, etc. Then when we walked past the Library a guy had a bag of Puproni (I think) and he wanted to give some to my dogs. He was standing on the sidewalk waiting for us, just kind of strange. I said no thanks, they have allergies (true). We...

    Kody's ear surgery

    Sometime in the next two weeks Kody will have surgery to remove a polyp behind his ear drum. The ear drum ruptured due to an infection caused by the polyp. My vet has to borrow a polyp lasso to cut the growth out of his ear. Meantime we are treating it with cephalexin, ear drops and Prednisone.

    Grill safety reminder

    It's grill season again and I wanted to remind everyone of the danger of the GRILL BRUSH! Speaking from experience keep it up and away from your dogs! They love to eat the metal bristles and this is NOT good. Have a safe and happy summer.
