    Thank you for adding me

    Have you checked out the Newfoundland Club of America's breeder's list? It's on their website, which is sometimes hard to navigate. I think that's your best bet since so many dog shows have been canceled.

    Stroller / Cart / DIY recommendation for 9Y0 Raven w/ hip dysplasia

    Will you be able to get her in and out of an apparatus? Does she get up on her own? I have never had experience with a cart to put the dog in, but am curious if anyone will have some suggestions. I've been lucky in that a Help 'Em Up harness was all I needed to get them outside. Once on their...

    6 Week Newfie Help!

    Am I understanding your post correctly? He is only 6 weeks old? If this is correct, have you taken him to a vet yet? He is probably not up to date on shots, he has not had his heart checked which the breeder should do at 12 weeks before they send the puppy home. Which means you got him 6 weeks...

    What is your dogs' favorite snacks?

    Mostly food, but some non food, too. Usually when they're young. Like socks, remotes, etc. But definitely food. Each dog has his/her preferences. Frank is more fond of apples and pears than steaks, for example. Charlie (Newf house guest) turns up her nose at dog food, but will eat piles of...

    Happiest of Holidays to You!

    It's been nearly twenty years since I joined NN. I spent many hours on here making friends, asking for ideas, sharing your sorrows. NN was such an important part of my life that I had to log on first thing in the morning. So to all whom I have shared my life with and who have shared theirs...

    Hi old friends

    Jane and Frank here. I got some "bummer" (pun intended) news at the beginning of the year. Rectal cancer. Did chemo-radiation for 5 weeks, no big deal. Didn't feel sick or lose my hair. Just ruined my sense of taste for a while. Just got home Wed from colorectal surgery. Had to get a...

    One last post. Happy Birthday Frank

    Ever since Frank came into my life last year, it's been a journey of discovery, and a special privilege to share my life with him. I can truly say we are best friends and inseparable. Yesterday was Frank's 8th Birthday and full of adventure. I had to go to our Newf club's board meeting in the...

    Frank is now...

    CH Wilbon's Catch Me If You Can CGC He passed his Canine Good Citizen test last night to the delight of the onlookers who were waiting with bated breath while he did the slowest sit I've ever seen. Like an old Victorian lady gathering her voluminous skirts before she delicately alights on the...

    Fun with Frank

    Frank is learning to swim. Not bad for an old fellow. And this week we start our CGC classes. He's doing well with basic obedience commands. Should be able to pass.

    Traditional Chinese Medicine diets

    Frank's new vet recommends that he eats a diet in accordance with Yin theory. I'm open to trying this, however, I'm not going to cook for him. Has anyone come up with a kibble that adheres to TCM protocols?

    Frank is HOME!

    What a sweet boy he is. We drove 7 hours down and 7 back with Frank and he was just perfect. Squeaked his rubber chicken now and again to let us know he was still with us in the car. We cracked up every time. He was so good when we stopped for breaks. Waited nicely until he was invited out of...

    I couldn't take it...

    ...any longer; I miss having a Newf. I hope I'm not jinxing myself, but I want to prematurely introduce my new boy, Frank!!! He is a breeder re-home and he's magnificent. He's a 7 year old (soon to be neutered) Landseer, has his CH, and I hope to add some more letters behind his name. I...
