Getting a Newf pup in just over 3 weeks!!!! ;D
« on: August 04, 2008, 08:35:11 am »
Hello all,

Found this site and thought it would be cool to get involved and hopefully gain some insite from those that have lived with these incredible animals!!  This is my first Newf, but I have had several other dogs in the past, ranging anywhere from Giant Malamutes, to Miniature Dachs.  I know this will be different, but ever since I met the first one (202# male cool and calm as could be), I just had to have one.  I have been to visit several breeders and have met over 100 newfs now.  I found a breeder I trust and now have just over 3 weeks until the "little" guy comes home.  Can't Wait!!

Thanks everyone!!  Yeah, I can't wait until the furball is home!!!   We have been waiting for quite a while now as the first pup we were going to get had to be put down due to a rare birth defect that went undetected until the first sign at 6 weeks and then after being re-evaluated at 9 weeks had worsened.  They didn't expect her to make it to even 6 months. 

We have had a hard time deciding on a name for the male, but we have finally narrowed things down.  For the moment the name "Doc" is the winner.

Thanks again everyone!!  We are heading up next weekend to meet the little guy...Kind of a tease I suppose, since we won't be taking him home for another week or so after that.  But we'll only be a couple hours away due to another camping trip, so we might as well take the chance to see him at 6 weeks old.

Congrats on your newf pup and getting to go see him.  Can't wait to see more pics of him.  He is adorable.

Well we went to Canada this past weekend and got to meet the puppies!!  After playing with them, and speaking with the breeder, we decided to go with the less "vocal" of the 2 males.  We get to pick him up on August 30th!!!

Here's a couple pics (Clicking the links will give larger images)

Yeah, it sucks having to wait, especially now that we've had the chance to see him in person!!
