Those crazy newfs!

I think they have actually become each others BFF.
The proof is in the picture pudding.

Chair Share
Just recently they've agreed to participate in the Chair Share Program. Katy is a rather wide load and likes to sit in the big comfy chair with her snout draped over the back so she can rest and relax while traffic and walkers pass by. Yuki likes to do the same. Not until today have they both occupied the chair for longer than 20 seconds. Today the stayed nearly twenty minutes!

Traffic Spotting is Thrilling
It must be, anyway, judging by the length of time they spent just staring out the window. They do this at least once a day, every day.

Baby Sister Adores Katy
I had always hoped that Katy and Dear Old Mr. Max would become like two snug little bugs in a rug, but that never happened. Yuki and Katy really do get along really well. They sit next to each other, sleep near each other and Yuki goes crying wild whenever Katy leaves the house for a walk. She has to sit in my lap and get hugs after 15-20 minutes of being without big sister. Except for one incident, Katy has always gotten along well with Yuki. One time Yuki got up in Katy's face when Katy was either relaxing or enjoying some tasty morsel. Katy munched little Yuki's nose so hard it left a bloody gash that left a noticeable scar. Other than that, Killer K has been amazingly gentle and patient with her young annoyance.

Aw...
Miss Put Upon Katy
That's Katy's pout face. We see it when she is really disgusted with the unequal and unfair treatment she receives. She put up with so much annoyance and so little compensation. She shared the chair for a long time — a really long time in dog years — and she didn't even get a cheeseburger for her trouble. The injustice!

They are so cute!!! I love how expressive their faces are:). At some point, I want to get a pal for Spencer. Something he can herd.

empty envelope,
it would be amusing to see a herding dog herding a newf!


I forget how big they are - they must seem enormous to others! To us they're sometimes little.. LOL! They can get surprisingly small when they curl up. Small.. it's all relative isn't it?!

OMG I love Newfoundlands! My goal is to get one when I move somewhere colder...Louisiana would not treat such a large dog kindly!
