Newfoundland Discussions / Newfies save your life
« on: May 02, 2005, 12:02:09 pm »
Funny story :D  There is a girl on Newf Net from the Netherlands whose signature line is:  Newfies save your life.  I really thought it would make a great bumpersticker, so I contacted her about opening a shop on Cafe Press and selling items with her line on them.  Turns out she'd been working on a logo for her dog club, so we used her logo and signature to design not just bumperstickers but lots of other things.  We agreed to donate all profits to the NCA Health Challenge.  Since this is an "international" effort, we want to help newfies all over the world!

The unique logo succinctly states the Newfoundland Dog's mission:  "Newfies Save Your Life."  Items with back panels include a verse from Lord Byron's tribute to his newfie Boatswain.  

The NCA Health Challenge is a non profit tax deductible trust run by the Newfoundland Club of America which funds various scientific research into Newfoundland health problems.  The NCA also publishes a significant amount of information on health problems in the form of a notebook.  You can visit their website at:  www.newfdogclu

William is 16 weeks on Monday, and up until about 14 weeks, he would pee in his crate.  "They" say that puppies can hold it an hour for every month old they are-well William has not peed in his crate for about 2 weeks now and he's in there from about 8:30 until noon, then 1 PM until 5:30 PM, so that's about right.  He does fine during the night now, but body functions slow down at night for animals as well as people.  He never slept in it though.

I started him out in a big crate with papers at one end and a lambswool thing for him to sleep on in the the other end because I knew we would not be able to let him out to go pee as often as he would need to.  You might try giving him a designated potty area for now.  Hopefully as he gets older, it will be more distasteful for him to go in his crate and he'll have the control to hold it until you get home.

Hang in there!

Went through the same thing with our baby too;  we always ignored the whining and crying and SOMETIMES let William out ONLY if he was quiet.  Now (at 15 weeks)  he puts himself (I kid you not) down for NAPS and also to bed for the night!!  It cracks me up and heaven knows we are grateful!

The pictures of your daughter with your dogs is just SOMETHING ELSE!  I could picture those pictures up on her (vet) office wall someday :)

It IS as soft as down.  People can't resist petting him, and so naturally I always brush him out nice and fluffy and shiny before we out in public :)

Actually, I had a blind rescue Newfie a couple fo years ago, but that did not work out too well as I had my elderly mom living with us and Fyn didn't know how to get out of the way.  He's in a only-dog, non-fragile owner home now. :)  At any rate, Will is my first newfie pup AND I LOVE HIM SOOOOOOO MUCH! LOL! 

Personally, I'll be happy when the puppy chewing, crating, housebreaking stuff is over.  He's doing really well though on all counts I must say.  I do love his puppy breath :)  And you're right, it is like having a celebrity on a leash!

LOL!  That detangler didn't work for sh*t, by the way :(  It's called DMat.  Off to the groomer, possibly to be shaved down, on Friday.

The price of love seems awfully high sometimes.  But always worth it.  So sorry for your losses.

A friend of mine said that Will is going to be gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) because I'm giving him bully sticks (dried out bull penises  :-[) to chew on.  Wonder what she'll say when she sees these!  He did not fuss AT ALL when I put this on him!

Thanks for the advice Sandra!  I thought that you weren't supposed to brush out a dry coat, shows you what I know!    Trimming the feet is a good idea too.

She is a brindle, but under her ears the hair is almost silver!  But believe me, her coat is even close to nice.  I wish the groomer would hurry up and tell me that miracle shampoo is in!

Terra is spayed--I think that their coat suffers somewhat when they come into heat.

Your dog reminds of Maurice n't ask me why!
