Astrid swallows all kinds of things. The other day she swallowed a big green bug from unknown origins. She also likes rocks, and has discovered the pile of charcoal ashes and found that be delish?? She feels if it is on the ground why not eat it and that goes for anything. I hate to think of all the things that have shot down her pie hole LOL  :D no matter how hard I try to avoid it.

As a matter of fact I am at work right now. Hey I have to keep my sanity some how and I love reading all the posts and seeing the puppies ;D! You know what I dont even feel guilty in the least bit as it makes my day more enjoyable and I still get my work done.

Hi Cincbcat,

I had the same moment as you are having now. You just realize that all they want is your love and attention. I have had to adjust many aspects of my life that I really was not prepared for but it is worth it. I also have the same problem with the kitties and Astrid she thinks they are fun to chase around but they cant stand it. I cried many times thinking what have I done to my kitties lifes they are living in fear and are very mad at me (oh the guilt). I'm so glad that you have a different view on things. I know what you mean about the # of responces blowing you away the folks on this board are grrrrreat!!!!!! Cant wait to hear more. Heres to surviving puppy hood together! Erika

P.S. Is she potty trained yet? This is the really tough one for me.

I love it when people just decide that they are going to breed dogs ??? Hopefully this is just a pipe dream for this person but sad enough he most likely will breed this poor puppy! People can be so ignorant it really makes you wonder. Someone who is even remotely qualified to breed dogs would know about the breed and not have to be told that the "black pyrs" are newfs!! All I can say is Wow what a complete ignoramus!!

Hi Cincbcat,

I am a new puppy owner myself I have a Newfoundland that will be 14 weeks this monday. She is a sweet baby girl but also exhibits selective hearing at times. I know how frustrating that can be but I have done some reading and from what I have read just like kids they go through a rebellion stage. I really dont think you are to late to start an obediance class you would both benefit from a basic obediance class and she sounds like she is pretty smart. Trust me I still think sometimes what did I get myself into and it seems there is no end in sight. I think a lot of it is that I have never had a puppy that I raised on my own and there are many ups and downs. Good thing the "ups" make it all worth it. From what you explain it sounds a lot like my house Astrid (thats my puppy) is into everything the second you look away she eats anything and everything so I have done my best to puppy proof but they are smart little buggers mine chewed the plastic bolt off of the toilet seat when I thought she was just having a nap in the bathroom (quiet as a mouse). Well I am certainly no expert but I just want you to know that her behavier can be corrected but it will take some time and patience. I also dont think anything she is doing is abnormal of any puppy they can really test your patience. When Astrid has me on my last thread I look at her and think aww she just wants my love even though she is acting like a "little" spaz! Im sure you will get tons of advise from people on this board I did. Just hang in there just as everyone told me it will get better. I hate to even admit it but at one point I thought maybe this is just way to much for me and I should return her as I went through my fare share of sleepless nights well needless to say I was thinking out of exhaustion and my baby is not going anywhere. Im sure you may of read some books but my puppy bible is called puppys for dummies and I have found it very informative it walks you through all the phases and gives you a good idea of what to expect and how to handle those really tough times. Good Luck!!

Astrids crate is also huge. I can sit comfortably in it. One problem I have with it is that it is not portable at all. I used very large boxes to section it off and make it small enough for her. What does Willow think of her new crate?

Thanks everyone for the great advise and support!! I took a couple days off next week so I can really work on a schedule with her.

Twonewfies thanks for the fan suggestion I will be going to get her a little fan today. She was very restless last night and was shifting all night long.

Hi Brandon,
Oh my goodness! What a difference is right.I just got my newfie last friday she will be 10 weeks on Monday so she is still little. I have no pictures posted of her yet but this weekend I will hopefully put some up. I brought Astrid to the beach a couple times and she wants nothing to do with the water yet. When did your newfie start to swim?
