Hi, new to Big Paws
« on: June 20, 2008, 11:58:40 am »
We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new
newfoundland pup on July 26.  We owned a St. Bernard
years ago and found a site similar to this then
that was VERY helpful.  My saint was a great dog
and I miss him but do still remember the slobbering
and slimy water dish.  Also lots of fur flying in'
the house and in the van.  But he was a love and
wanted nothing more than to be with us and please
us.  I have put a deposit down so there's no turning
back now.  Most times I am excited especially when
we get an up to date picture of the pups.  They are
3 weeks now.  But then there are times I panic and
wonder what's wrong with me.  I have 2 shih tzus that
are both 1 year old.  Since they are so young, I
hope they accept him and play with him.  It is
definitely like bringing a new baby home and hoping
the other children are not jealous and wonder if
I can manage another one.

Greetings - Let's hear it for the Newfs.

I must admit our 13yr old Chihuahua still hasn't taken a liking to our Newf pups but he is a grouchy old man and used to being an only child. I must say when he was a lot younger and we had a Lab/Newfy mix they got along just fine so I wouldn't worry about your guys. They are all young enough.

All I can say is you will love your baby immediately.

Welcome aboard :)

Yay!  Another big paw to add to the BPO family!  And it's a Newf!  I'm partial to them, I had my heart completely stolen and slobbered on 15 months ago by my first Newf, Sierra.  Her pic is in my avatar.

Welcome to BPO and pics are mandatory here. ;D  Lots of them!  I can't wait to see your new baby...Newfs are just the cutest puppers aren't they?  All fuzzy and clumsy...

I wouldn't worry too much about your existing kids.  They are young and everyone will find their place.  As for the  slimy water and fur all over, I bet you'll forget about it soon enough.  None of it will matter much once you bury your face in all that fuzz.  LOL!
