On BFF's

I have this BFF named Jen.......actually she is my sister, who is also the Mother to my wonderful niece and nephew. Now I can not lie and say Jen is a sheep and goat person (she did not get that DNA).........that would be a really big lie. BUT she is a huge BIG DOG person and a great vet tech ( she works at one of those "suburban" clinics that only does dogs and cats, no large animals:).

Now I will take credit and say that her love for Newfies stems from me. My first Newfie came into my life back in 1990. Anyways, I could go on and on about my love and Jen's love for Newfies and our many stories about the Newfies in our lives, past and present, but that could be a really, really long post. Jen has 2 big brown Newfies, both are show dogs and she recently started blogging too. She has some really good dog links on her blog also. Today she posted some beautiful pictures of the dogs with her daughter.

Gracie is maybe 40lbs I think and Leroy is pushing a good 135 lbs. Newfies are such wonderful dogs......they truly are BFFs:)
If you get a chance, please stop by and see the pictures and say "Hi!"

I have a Newfie too, only I married him and he weighs about 205. He is my BFF but there are some days I wonder if a Newfie dog wouldn't have been a better option. ;-)

That picture just warms my heart. She is such a lucky wee girl to be loved by those newfies. I love the gentle giants.

Thanks for this post sis! I'm really liking the photography thing! Now if only I had one of those expensive cameras that I don't know how to work!

So...Kristi..I have to ask. If you love Newfies so much, WHY DON'T YOU HAVE ONE?? Just sayin'....;-)

Hooray for BIG dogs! I grew up with a St. Bernard, and I just love our Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepard. Nothing better than to be able to pet your dog while standing (I'm tall), and to put your arms around them and give a big bear hug! Newfoundlands are awesome! Thanks for sharing. :)
