Hello Big Dog Owners
« on: February 01, 2006, 05:46:12 pm »
Hi all, I have just found this forum while searchin the Internet ;D.

My name is Shelley, I live in the UK and I have 4 Newfies, 2 blacks and 2 browns. Molly was the first to join the house hold, she is 10 years old in a couple of months and still as active as the youngsters ;). Then came Bronte, who was brown, sadly she had a stroke last year after an operation, it is Bronte in my avatar. Ten days before Bronte died our first boy was born, his name is Kitten as he is so soft, he is also brown, and not quite 10 months old yet. We talked his breeder into letting us have his brown sister too as we had lost Bronte, her name is Honey. And then lastly there is Lacey, a black female, we haven't actually got her yet as she is only a week old, but she is already considered a part of the family ;D

My username is galaxybears as that is our Kennel Club affix. We have never bred any pups but we do show our Newfs and also do waterwork with them. But the rest of the time they are just our constant companions

That is my mad house in a nut shell :)

Looking forward to getting to know you all ;D

Shelley

Welcome... I'm Erin I live in Connecticut in the US.  I have a newf Kali who turned 1 last month and is going through the teenage phase ::).  I also have Lacey an aussie, two horses and two cats.....yes our house is insane at all times too.  I can't wait to see pictures of all your newfs.  So get posting, just kidding.  Hope you have as much fun as I do, I must warn you this website does become addicting.

Welcome aboard!!! I have 2 dogs, 3 cats and 2 bearded dragons. My dogs are Kiah who is an eight month old great pyrenees and a new pup that just arrived. She doesn't have a name yet. We think she is a great pyr/german shepard mix who is around ten weeks old.

Welcome to BPO!  I'm fairly new here too, but you won't feel like it for long.  Everyone here is so nice and extremely helpful if you need it.  I'm Stacy, and Maggie is our baby Great Dane.  We have our hands full with one pup, I can't imagine 4.   :D

Hi Shelly!  Welcome to you and all your pups!  I am owned by a three year old Landseer, Cowboy and Chester who is an almost -one-year old Brown Newfie.  I'm jealous that you have double the fun!  I'd love to see more pictures of all your pups!  We live in Southern California.

Welcome, this is a great forum.  Sounds like you have your hands full of Newfs, what a wonderful dilemma!  Drake, whose 3.5 years, says hello too.  He likes John Courage but is partial to Tennants as well!  ;D

Hi Shelley,

Welcome to BPO, nice to see some more English Newfs Joining. I have 2 black bitches, Bell & Hovis. I'm a member of Northern Newfoundland Club and show both girls locally. I'm currently carting with Bell and hoping to swim them both this year with N.N.C.

Welcome to BPO.  I am flat out jealous!  FOUR newfies!  I have a just turned 6mo old black newfie pup and a 4 year old golden retriever.  This is a great place to learn and share about our big pawed friends.

Hi and welcome!!! I am a big fan of multi-dog households!!! There's no better way to stay warm at night than with a bunch of snuggly dogs!!! :D

I am Rebekah and I have a ridiculous cast of characters here at my house, mostly mutts and two Great Danes at the moment (one who is a foster).

I'm sure you will enjoy it in BPO Land!
