My daughter did me a MySpace, so not sure it is really me!

My web site is better for dog lovers though ;)

Hope those links work!

Lovely photos, he looks gorgeous in his hat.

I made Christmas cards with Kitten on last year, only I had to use Adobe to paint a Santa hat on him!

My hubby is so jealous, he would love to be able to take Kitten to work with him, he hates leaving him at home with me!

He needs his confidence building. May be you could get him a paddling pool for the garden and let him play in that. I wouldn't try and get him in any lakes or anything for a while.

Is he a gluten for food? If he is try taking some tasty treats out with you when you are visiting water, and if he gets close to getting his feet wet give him some treats and tell him how clever he is. Or encourage him to the waters edge with treats.... But don't try and get him in the water for a while.

From personal experience I wouldn't use large breed puppy food again!

We fed that to our younger two, and the male (Kitten) grew so quickly he ended up with OCD and elbow dysplacia.

The breeder I had my first two Newfs from recommends going onto adult food when the pups are 3-4 months old, as it makes sure they don't grow too quickly. It might not sound good, but it is what she does and her dogs are all healthy, non have joint problems, so I guess there must be something in it.

I have had four Newfs, and only one of them swam like a fish when they first went into water.

I have an old Newf, Molly, who was 10 this summer. She only decided this year that she liked water and now she will swim whenever she can, and she is a bugger to get out of water!

My second Newf, Bronte, was the one who always swam like a fish. Sadly she is no longer with us.

Then I have Honey, she can swim, she has been out to "rescue" my daughter. But she isn't that bothered about water... Other than playing in it!

And then their is Kitten, the only male and a complete wuss. We have managed to get him to swim a couple of times, but he starts to panic once he realises his feet are off the floor. The one time he did swim it was just to get to his sister Honey, who was on the bank of the lake, and Kitten jumped out of the boat and swam to her... We were actually hoping that she would swim out to the boat!

I just leave them to it, if they want to swim they can, if they don't want to then it is up to them!
