    My Last Dog

    was a mix of newfoundland and chesapeake bay retriever.  Big brown thick fur.  Loved to swim and would float.  Once he died i could never bring myself to get another, well was never really in a situation to get one again.

    Newfies Are The Best

    I have had 4 Newfies in my lifetime.  I can not begin to explain how wonderful these dogs are.  They truly are the "gentle giants" that is always part of their description.   These dogs are one of a kind and hard to explain unless you've had one.  One of the breeders that I...

    My Little Joy

    Kolo is my girl. She's the best dog one can have, especially for a working person who is gone 10-12 hours a day. She sleeps in the garage or backyard most of he day and is totally nondistructive. She doesn't even bark. When my husband and I come home, she gets very excited...

    My Dream Dog.

    I have never actually owned a Newfie but I eventually want to. I have only ever had one real life encounter with one and I was so amazed at how large but how graceful this dog was. Definitely plan on getting one when I have a bigger place.

    Love Newfoundlands

    I've never had one as a pet, but I work at a vet clinic and this couple boards their Newfoundland. His name was Jake and he was such a gentle and loving dog.
