    Thanks for saving us money!

    Tiika has had some swelling on her knee, so the Vet prescribed Rheumocam (Meloxicam) which cost us $156.78, and theoretically should give us 27 daily 5.5mg doses. Although it feels like not more than 1 or 2 doses are left after 22 days. In the meantime, I came to NewfNet, looked up threads and...

    Wanting for blower

    My outside grooming table is not that big but Tiika always wants to be 1st. As soon as the dryer is turned on after our walk she's up on the table waiting. This morning Splash went up 1st but Tiika wasn't happy with that so she climbed up, too. Both of them waiting to be blown in 11Degree F...

    a little Boast

    We just got a wonderful letter and certificate in the mail from the Canadian Kennel Club. Apparently our Tiika took third place for Newfoundlands in Top Obedience Dogs in Canada in 2011. Wow! That was a big surprise but we are very proud of her!

    harness from Beth Edge

    I posted this in general but no response, so maybe I have to attract the draft people in this section :wave: Does anyone have contact info for Beth Edge, harness maker, in Michigan? I got Tiika's last harness from her and now my friend wants one for her Newf but I can't find Beth's info...

    lessons in humility (long)

    :icon_redface: Well, Tiika and I went to the Wine Circuit Shows27-20 Sept. Tiika was entered in Open Obedience for 4 days. I figured she'd get her last 2 legs for CDX the 1st 2 days and we might even try bumping up to Utility for the last 2 days. Think again! The 1st day Tiika lagged and looked...
