No hard feelings or ill will towards rotties here. To tell the truth I'm the only dog lover I know that is scared to death of dogs!!!! I like just about every dog out there I just can't handle them running free up and down the road tearing up garbage bags etc..., I avoid them like the plague. I get along great with dogs I know and have friends who have had rotties as far back as I can remember, and I grew up with 15 dogs in the house, 13 Pekingese and 2 GSDs.

I am finding the same thing as well. It's more like going for a walk and stop, walk and stop ......
You know what I found out from at least 20 different people? That angus is going to be a big dog, big as a battleship as one guy put it. I'm glad I found that out now. lol.

It's nice here but the weather....... not so good lol. Maybe that's why newfoundland dogs are in limited numbers, it's always raining and they just have to be outside in the rain!!! Angus has not meet a puddle he did not like! LOL!

Here's a picture used by newfoundland gov't for thier tourism brochures etc... thought you might like it. Some day I'll get Angus in a similar picture, when I can trust him not to jump into the pounding surf!!

I think the other dog was okay as people acted fast, but no one got a chance to check. He was a "free roaming dog" so there was no owner with him. When I think about it there is about 7 or 8 dogs just roaming my neighbourhood, some big but mostly small dogs.

« on: August 05, 2005, 06:53:45 am » a Rottweiler who I'm guessing has not been trained or socialized. I was walking Angus last night when the rotti was across the street and had to be held back by his/her owner, the choke chain didn't even seem to phase him. After the rotti was gone in my other neighbour came out to tell me that just 2 nights ago the rotti jumped his backyard fence and attached a dog walking up the road, then 2 cars pulled in and started blowing horns etc... until the owner came out to get his dog. Very disturbing stuff, I don't think I'll walk past that house very often.

The newfie thing is funny. A few people here are really offended by it (not me). I was reading a newsgroup on newfoundland dogs the other day when a newfoundlander wrote in to try and convince everyone there to not call thier dogs newfies because it really offends people. I do not think that way and pretty soon I'll start using Newfie in reference to Angus as Newfoundland is just to long to type all the time. It is funny when I think about it, everyone here who stop me when I'm walking Angus ask if he's a Newfoundland, never a newf or newfie!

Thanks for the welcome to BPO. I'll be sure to post some pics of Angus and show off his homeland! As for newfoundland dogs here, i can agree that there is not to many, almost rare to see unless you know where to go. Most of the tour boats have a newfoundland onboard but that is mainly for the tourists. Other than that I would see around 4 to 6 a year, and I live in the capital city, where at one point in time (1800's) there was over 2000 working here! I would think the beagle is the most abundant dog here, used for hunting rabbits and there is a lot of labs here as well, after all the lab is the 2nd dog named after us (our provinces official name is Newfoundland and Labrador).
I find it strange trying to call refer to my dog as a newf or newfie as that is what everyone in Canada calls us!!

Hi Everyone, the AC Clan family (all of our names begin with A including Abby the great mouse catching cat) has a new addition - Angus, our 11 week old newfoundland puppy. I've been reading the posts here for awhile now and decided I should register to take advantage of all the great advice, pictures, stories, etc...
Now for a bit about my family: We live in St. John's, Newfoundland and have 3 children ages 6, 4 and 4 months and after 6 years of debating on a newfoundland dog we finally made our choice and couldn't be happier. I'm looking forward to reading and see more on this board and hopefully joining in on some of the discussions. When I get some good pictures I'll be sure to post them for all to see.
Is there anyone else here from Newfoundland?
