She is such a cutie!  I just want to give her a big squeeze....

What gorgeous girls!! 

I wanted to introduce Jinx's little brother Rookie...  Here's a brief run down on how he ended up a member of our family....
My mom has had Standard Poodles for the last 12 years or so and I swore I'd NEVER own one. So, she and her kennel partner just had their 1st litter on Halloween.  Of course they were so adorable and the girls loved playing w/them, but they were poodles and no thank you.  My mom had her favorite puppy she called Stain because of a white spot on his chin...the ugliest one in the bunch (according to me) but a personality plus!  Anyway, my mom had to go out of town for the weekend and asked me to dog sit.  So, off we (Hannah-9, Kendall-1 and Jinx) went.  Tayler my 13 year old and my husband stayed home because Tay had a sleepover...So I knew I'd have my hands full!  Ten adult dogs and 6 six week old puppies!!  I was scared!!  Needless to say I didn't have to lift a finger w/any of the puppies...Hann ah was on top of it from the get go.  She cleaned the pee and poo up as soon as they went, fed and watered them and loved on them too.  She seemed to have an immediate connection w/Stain. 
Not Stain!!  Besides we don't need another dog...everyone's heard that before right?? 
She stayed up w/him until 1:00am and was back downstairs before I ever woke up!  I could hear her talking to him about how they were made for each other and she didn't think that she could have him...but she would pray that he got a good home and they would love him like she did.  OH BOY!!  I called my husband and tried to explain to him while sobbing what had just happened.  Of course, the famous words "we don't need another dog".  I explained to Hannah and she proceeded to cry the rest of the weekend and by the time we left I was emotionally drained.  When we got home Tim assured me her attachment to this pup would end (out of sight...out of mind).  WRONG!!  She cried for days and the puppies were going fast...someone was interested and we had to make a decision.  Tim finally gave in and we brought him home.  We decided on the name Rookie since we were novice poodle owners.

After about a month and a 1/2 he's settled in nicely and we couldn't imagine not having him!  He is a complete joy and VERY smart. And I even think he's become quite the cutie! Jinx on the other hand wasn't that excited...but she's coming around.

He is 11 weeks and weighs almost 30 pounds!  Does that qualify as a "big dog"?  I wasn't sure, but thought I would introduce him...he's a blue Standard

Sami, Jinx, and Rookie

I will attach pictures wouldn't let me do it as one post (probably because I rattled on too long :)

Good job Kate!  We love's a great way to bond w/your dog.  Jinx really enjoyed it too.  We are planning to start competing this summer (if it works out, 3 kids, the youngest is only 1 can sometimes pose a problem :)...
Best of luck to you and'll be a great team and do awesome things!!

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome!  You all have beautiful dogs and I can't wait to get to know you all better.  It's funny now that I've found this website where you can talk to other people w/big dogs...I can't seem to stay off the computer!!  My husband even wanted to know what had me so entertained... . he enjoyed looking at all the pictures too.  Thanks again for the welcome, I'm sure I'm here to stay! :)
Jinx says thank you too!

Thanks again for the welcome...I took your advice and posted an introduction.  I love your Newfs...they're beautiful!  I would love to have a Landseer.  I have heard that they have more energy than their solid colored counterparts.. . any truth to that?  Thanks again for the welcome...I look forward to talking more :)

Hello to everyone! My family and I are owned by an 8 month old Newfie named Jinx.  We got her when she was 5 months old and we couldn't imagine life w/out her!  Now I understand why everyone says once you own'll never be w/out one!  I am looking forward to learning lots from all the other big dog owner's on this site!
We look forward to talking to everyone!

Thank you for the Welcome!  I'm so excited to talk to other owners of such a wonderful breed! (and I hope to learn a lot too!)  I pulled up the link...that is Jinx's brother.  Jinx's Breeder, Amy Lane (Allegiance Newfoundlands), lives in Michigan...I recognize the one of Nemo in the dinasaur costume (it's on her website)  How funny is that???  I love you're's the cutest!

My Jinx had several siblings that were gray in her litter (one named Nemo :) but I haven't seen a recent picture of him, so I'm not sure if it's the same dog.  Anyway, her sire was gray and her dam was black w/gray recessive genes.  I have never heard they were considered rare or had more health problems than the other colors.  I'm curious to find out about that.... they are a recognized color by the AKC.  I think they are cute~

Congratulation s!  I'm sure you will do fine.  I am also new to Newfs... We got our Jinx (pre-named) at 5 months old.  She's 8 months now and we couldn't imagine life w/out her.  I am still learning the ropes and I hope to learn more from the knowledgeable Newf owners on this site.
Best of luck to you!
