Newfoundland Discussions / Re: Yawning??

I've read the same thing about the yawning. When we are about to go to the park I will get a whole sequence of huge exagerated yawns. He is so exicited to go to the park, and apparentley the yawning helps calm him down.

Burping and farting... Yup, my Hutch is a true man when it comes to that! He sleeps in the bedroom with us, and one morning when we awoke the whole room smelled like one giant fart! :o There he sat looking as proud as could be!!

Congrats on your beautiful pup! I am so glad to hear that his heart is sounding good now. He has to be one of the cutes pups I have seen!
My step brother has a Rhodesian Ridgeback that as a pup had the same sort of problem, he is now 6 years old and his ticker is just fine. Good luck!

I don't think that you will find much of a difference if you alter Judge. It does cut down on that selective hearing that they are so good at. Plus, altering him will definatley cut down on his risk of reproductive cancers big time!! Humping can still continue with an altered male because it is a sign of dominacne over another dog. I know a female Jack Russell that is endlessly humping bigger dogs. Just trying to tell them that she is boss I guess.

I think that the Monk's caps are great, it gives them a little something extra to talk about! Not that a Saint needs anything more to make them a little extra special, because they already are!!

This is a fantastic idea!!!!!! I am so glad that I have joined such a place! I may be new here, but anything that I can do to help with such a great thing... just let me know.

I have to agree that this is by far the best site that I have found!! I have belonged to a few forums in the past and they came nowhere near to being as friendly as all of the folks here are. So congradulation s to such a great place!

It was only a few months ago when I caught a good friend of mine taking a big smell of Hutch's paws. She told me she loved the smell, she said it is like a movie theatre filled with popcorn! Now everytime she comes over she has him sit and give his paw so that she can smell his feet. I have warned her, there may be a day that it won't be such a good idea!!

My vet has told me that she prefers to work on the larger breeds because they aren't typically as snappy as the smaller breeds! Of course we didn't say that she said this to our smaller dog friend owners!

It's great meeting everyone! Hutch loves the outdoors, he can't get enough of swimming, playing in the snow, chasing his 'sister' Abbey. I'll be sure to post some pics! It is sad about all of the St.'s that end up in rescue, and all of the other giant breeds out there. I wonder what the original owners were thinking that they were warned about the size, shedding, drool...etc. Did they think people were just making it all up to deter them from a cute little puppy?

Anyway- you all have such beautiful babies! I see each of them and think maybe we have room for one more!

Miss Lilly- you are one beautiful girl!!! I just showed Hutch the picture, and drool......... ....!

Thanks guys! Already I can tell I'll be an addict. Dogs are my passion in life, and my own dogs are my life. It's great to find a place here that others feel the same.

We got our Saint when he was ten months old and he weighed 110lbs. Now at just shy of two years old he is 180lbs. Those Dane legs will be grown into, Hutch had legs that didn't seem like they would ever stop, but now he has grown right into them! We really worried about his growth too, because of all of the joint problems, so we brought him in for a weigh in on a monthly basis. 180 seems to be the weight that he should finally settle in at.

I have never really thought about it that way before Jabear. Thanks for the new out look on things. There have been days that we have decided it was best to leave the city to take the dogs for a walk just because we didn't have the energy to deal with the whole parade of questions. Right after they ask if we have a saddle, we are usually asked what kind of cross he is, a Saint Bernard what? It is the short hair that throws them off, when we tell them that he is a smooth coat we are often told that there is no such thing. Or my personal favorite, he can't be a Saint they aren't that big!!! Oh well, you can only teach those who want to learn!

Hello everyone! I am so glad that I found this site! I have been searching for months to find a great Giant dog place to visit on the internet, and have belonged to many dog forums, but like you all probably know it is hard to find people who understand life with our giant babies! I have a 20 month old Saint named Hutch, and a husky/shepherd cross named Abbey. We got Hutch when he was ten months old from a rescue, and he was the most amazing thing to have happened to me. I will never be without a Saint again!! Looking forward to meeting you all!
