So I just mapquested and found out it is actually farther for me to drive to Chicago than it is to drive to the shelter! Is there someone in Indianapolis that could drive to Chicago and pick them up and then I can meet them in Indy? Hmm... we'll keep working on it! I am hoping my friend (a newfie owner) will go get them tomorrow... I'll keep you posted.
On another note - when we called, they said Norman http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=10655080 with the white on his chest was a pure bred and the other - Martin -was a mix http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=10654928. I thought it was the other way around! What do you guys think? We also found out that Norman was 1 and Martin was 3. I think Martin looks like a young pure bred Newf.. maybe they got the pictures switched. Anyway.. thoughts?

They are both beautiful!  I think Normans face looks more like a newf but if I could, I would take either one!!  or both actually....I just wouldnt have a place to live because my fam would lock the doors!!  Good luck getting them home...

I would agree with what they said. Norman definitely has the Newf head and Martin definitely has more of a longer schnozz. Maybe more of a Flattie.

Anyway, driving to Chicago and then to Indy is an insane amount of driving, but I could probably get them from Julie in Chicago. I'm an hour from Chicago. Indy is 3 hours from here, though. So, that would be about 8 hours of driving for me, which I can't do cuz I'm about to deliver this baby!

Let me know if I can help. I could certainly keep them for a little while if you could get up here to pick them up. (I'm in LaPorte)

I just looked at the map. They're way down by Terre Haute!!! That's a pretty good hike. If you are in Indy, it doesn't make any sense for them to go all the way up to Chicago and then all the way back down to Indy!!!! Are you in Indy, Kealoha?

Hmmm.. Good point. I really need to spend more time on Mapquest! My brother is in Indy, and I am in the southernmost part of Indiana, across from Louisville Kentucky. Im still waiting to hear from my friend about whether she can drive to get them. She is in Louisville. It would be about 8 hours round trip - but shes a newf lover and likes to drive... so this is perfect for her! (or so I keep telling her!)

Wait...you are in New Albany, then?

I am just assuming, as that is "across from Louisville". We have friends in New Albany.

Hmm...it looks like the dogs are about 3 hours from you. I have friends in Bloomington and stuff, but I wouldn't probably be able to convince them to go get the dogs.

And even if I got them, there would be no way I could get them to you at this late stage in my pregnancy game.

I'll keep thinking of some way I could help you out, though.
