    Photo Challenge 287 - As far as the eye can see.

    This challenge is about landscapes that are "as far as the eye can see". My examples are set in the countryside and the Adirondacks but cityscapes could also be applicable, just depends on the perspective. Good luck and have fun. Cascade Mountain - ADK, USA Tuscany in Winter

    Photo Challenge 284 - Candids

    Since my baby boy is graduating from high school I've been looking at old photos and just love the unstaged unplanned candids photos the best. So this challenge is about letting personality shine through. Have fun! Examples: "Packing the car." "Nature Boy" "What are you looking at?"

    Advice needed.

    Since we got Monty last September I've tried to take things slow and not stress him out since he can be reactive. Since he dislikes being groomed and having his nails trimmed I decided it was probably safer and less traumatic to do these things incrementally at home. I thought I was making...

    Great Quote

    Just heard this while watching a Zak George training video and thought I'd share it. "There is no path to a well trained dog that does not require a step back from time to time." Zak George So very true and important for dog lovers to accept and understand. :):yinyang::)

    On Talking Terms with Dogs

    On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals by Turid Rugaas I don't know if this book has been discussed on NN yet but I found it to be really informative and immediately identified the "signals" in my 3 dogs. It is a fairly quick and easy read. Excellent resource for any dog lover but...

    Contagious Canine Cancer?

    Interesting but scary article. Clearly the article is lacking in details but on its face value it gives me another reason to avoid dog parks...

    Newbie Newf Lessons

    As many NN members know we adopted Monty (Muppet Dog) from Newf Friends at the end of September 2013. I come from a very dog friendly family so we pretty much knew what to expect. However... #1 Lesson - Never eat food in your car in front of your newf. It can get really messy. #2 Lesson -...

    Cart Training - Where to start?

    I'm interested in training Monty to do some carting or pulling for recreational purposes. Where should I start? Are there any good books on the subject and resources for a harness?

    Thinning Scissors?

    What type of thinning shears would people recommend? I was not happy with the selection at the pet store. I was thinking about going to a beauty supply store or ordering something. Also are they used just like regular scissors?

    I'm looking for ideas. Our Monty keeps getting ticks on his muzzle. We treated him with K9 Advantix but it does not seem to keep the ticks off his face. Obviously I am concerned about anything poisonous around his mouth but am looking for suggestions. I was thinking of maybe rinsing or wiping...

    Monty Snacks

    After realizing I was spending $24.95+/lb. for my organic dog treats I decided that I would try to make my own or just give my canine posse strip steak because it would be cheaper. I came up with this recipe which all of my dogs love. Monty Snacks 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato 2 large...

    First Friend

    Love the sentiment behind the Rainbow Bridge. Love transcends all. Just wanted to share one of my favorite passages with other dog lovers. When the Man waked up he said, "What is Wild Dog doing here?" And the Woman said, "His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he...

    Hi All, On September 28, 2013, my family and I adopted Monty from Newf Friends Rescue. Monty is our first Newfoundland but we have been a fan of the breed since we met a 9 month old male named Bartholomew 20 years ago in a canine obedience class. The Path to Monty: I saw Monty's profile on...
