Hind legs
« on: June 11, 2009, 01:01:53 pm »
Gobson, is a New Foundland, 10 months. People are laughing at his hind legs. They say he looks like a duck. I trimmed the hair down his legs could that be it that makes it so noticeable?

Yes, He almost looks like his back legs are doing a little spin.

an 10 month old newf barely has his adult hair and especially not his feathers. they dont really need to be trimmed down. give the poor baby a hug from here and tell him he is just beautiful even if he looks like a duck!!

My 2 year old Newfie does the same. When he trots/runs, the toeing in goes away. I think it's cute! Kinda lazy, lumbering Newfie walk. :)
