We are so happy with our new addition!!!!
Thank you so much! We love her!

Hi Stephanie & Len,
We wanted to give you an update on Dixie.
The vet is
very pleased with her progress
and made a point of saying
how polite and well-behaved
She weighed around 42 pounds
when we took her to the vet
at 17 weeks.
She is a super sweet and laid back puppy who is learning
all of the obedience
commands very quickly,
and she has yet to chew up
anything she's not supposed to.
We couldn't be happier with her.
I've attached a few
pictures here for you.

Just wanted to give you a follow-up
He has adjusted well to
his new home!!
He and Gracie are inseperable!! Whenever
she get ups, so does he.
They play together like they were
siblings from the same litter.
getting soooo big
and has almost caught up with Gracie.
I can find the video, I will send it to

Well it has been 5 days and
things are going great.
Bella and Zoe are getting along great!
They love playing together and it is soooooo
Zoe was crying a little bit ago and I
couldn't help, but Bella went and laid down
by her and
she instantly stopped and went straight to
It was very sweet!!!
Her first vet visit went well and I found
out that she weighs 30 lbs.
She doesn't look that big. It is so fun to
watch Zoe stalk and pounce on Bella and
then Bella just rolls with her...and they
love to chase each other around.
We are soooo happy to have Zoe join our

I just took that
picture about an hour ago. He is out on his
lounging by the pool! He now going on 1 1/2 years old and weighs about 125lbs.
With Harlow approching her 1st birthday I thought
I'd send you a new picture of her.
She has definately grown up to be a "big" girl. She
is weighing in around 100lbs.
already grown taller than the 4yr. old newfie down
She is a riot, her personality is very unique...and
she is the most well behaved
animal I've ever had.
At 1 yr. old she is protective of the children and
they stay in line.
For example, Jimmy the 5 yr. old tends
ahead of us to where I have to yell for him
to wait up and slow down.
Harlow catches up with
Jimmy every time gets in front of him and
keeps him from going further, then she won't move
until I catch up. I love that!
Hope you are enjoying your summer, good luck with
your upcoming litters.

thought I'd send an update. Twink is everything I
was hoping for!
Her "formal" name is Twinkle Toes of Tusk's Affaire.
She's sleeping thru the night and pretty much
She's full of energy and makes me laugh!
Sometimes I believe she thinks she's a kangaroo
because when I turn my back,
I find she's jumped up on my coffee table and is
trying to figure out how to get down.
we start "puppy kindergarten" next week, which I'm
sure she'll enjoy.
She already loves everybody and going for car rides
and will bark at you
if you don't pay attention to her. Thanks again for a great dog!

Thank you so much to the Hitching post for bringing
such joy into our family
with these beautiful Newfie, we can't wait to bring our
next puppie home this May 18th.
We are considering flying out there- seeing the farm-
meeting with you personally-
and brining home our new baby.

Yesterday Gracie had her first REAL swim in Torch Lake
here in Michigan.
She really liked it, yet the big waves were a little
frightening to her,
and the length of her swim time was definitely decided
upon by her. Here are a few samples....

Tired Missy June 09
Abby and Missy 11-21-08
girl is growing fast. Poor Kawlija looks
like the puppy now. Missy makes the queen
bed look like a single. Toni.
Missy is Jeff's side
kick...He has to have her with him at all
times..We will probably be paying for it with
separation anxiety when she is older.......She
is such a little brown bear....Just
wonderful..She gets spayed the end of this
month....She is very healthy, eating like a
horse and taking her vitamins.....Not quite the
lover Abby is, but she is trying...She loves
running with the huskys...She looks big with all
that hair, but she is still a pup so we have to
watch her....She is a messy, Missy....
Abby is beyond
words...She has really come around..She hangs
with us in whatever room we are in. She just
has so much personality....Loves to be loved.She
will go back and forth between Jeff and I to get
all the pets and kisses she can..When Jeff is
cooking, she hangs in the kitchen and waits for
a nibble...I don't have to say one word
anymore..When she hears me mixing her food, she
comes to HER spot to eat....If she is out side
when I start feeding folks, I just yell, "Come
on Abby, lets eat." She can be in the farthest
part of the yard and come running....It's
amazing the difference...She definitely knows
she is home now.....She does not sleep on her
bed anymore....She has the whole couch in our
sunroom..She loves it there..except when it is
raining and thundering. She still has quite the
fear...That is Abbys' couch though.....We cannot
imagine not having these girls.....Such a great
day finding you on the computer.....

Abby and Jeff
Maxx is a WONDERFUL boy! We love him so much
and can’t imagine how we got through
half century of life without a Newfie. His
Yorkie brother, Frank, of course still is the
Alpha dog (he is a terriorer – ha!), but he is a
kind and loving brother, and really enjoys
dog pal to play with all day.
Maxx, at 13 weeks, now weighs 35 pounds (I’ve
attached pics to show his growth evolution),
rings his door bells to go out. We are taking
him to puppy class and he is amazingly smart.
He sits, lays down, walks nicely on a leash,
stays and loves to be brushed. Our instructors’
biggest complaint is that Maxx keeps falling
asleep during class. Very funny!
He, of course, is the hit of our neighborhood.
We actually have people come to the house
if we can bring Maxx out to show people who
haven’t seen him. Our vet, groomer
and pet shop
owner all ask that we bring him by to visit
whenever we can.
Remember when we told you about our giant water
bowl “lake” crock in the kitchen?
that at 10 weeks. It was absolutely hilarious –
he had both front feet in and
was dunking his
head to the bottom, then would ‘dig’ the water
out. We replaced that with
a Maxx-sized crock
that he can only get his head – not his feet –
into. He loves the walk
in shower with no door
and frequently joins Todd and/or me in the
morning. We now have a
beside ours. He also sleeps in the shower
during the daytime, which
is hilariously funny.
He is a sweet guy, with a very interactive
personality. He does lots of talking, not too
much barking, has an incredible level of
curiosity, and a deep love of his family.
of my clients and teams have met him on the
phone and love the weekly Maxx-antics.
Maxx, who goes by a variety of names - AKC name
is Samson’s Maximus Prime of Stonebridge,
is also called Maxx-i-moose, Maxx-a-mania and
Tugs, is such a wonderful dog.
We were at
Target a few weeks ago, and as we were checking
out, the cashier asked
“Is your dog pretty
spoiled?” We told him, “No, just very loved and
Captain Tucker is the pride, joy and
affectionate steamroller of our family!
You were right when you said he was a sweet boy;
he really is the most lovable,
teddy bear in the world. It is truly like
having my own teddy bear! He is a bit stubborn,
but we've kind of picked that up about Newfies!
Anyway, just wanted to let
you know and see how
perfect Tucker was for us. He was, most
the pup God had for us and I love him
Keep up the good work!
Hi, got your email yesterday and
wanted to send you some recent pictures of Delta
she truly is a gift to me, I'm 45 and I have
five children, my last child will be leaving in a
I am raising my grandchild that I have had
from the hospital, it is very hard for me to let go
of my kids so, as any mother you get that empty
feeling when your nest becomes empty,
Delta is going
to be my best friend and I really needed her right
now, God has a way of
taking care of us, He is
always there to pick up the pieces and I feel that
God brought me
to you for Delta, I am so happy I
As you know, I have
worked endless hours in the training of my beautiful
BABE. We are constant friends and companions, but
in spite of that fact what follows is going to be
difficult for you or anyone else to believe. Even
though she has been taught many commands, it’s the
little things that I find she understands without
any training at all. I think I’ve shared some of
those moments with you as well. This experience
however takes the cake!!! Babe has been completely
housebroken for several months now, so I haven’t
spent any time before bed, for at least the last
three months, taking the usual nighttime precautions
when you have a puppy. In the past I always put
down a large puppy pad on my bathroom floor which
she utilized for nighttime emergencies, but as I
said I haven’t used the puppy pads for at least
three months now. In my master bathroom I have a
large rattan shelving unit, and on the bottom shelf
is the partially used package of puppy pads. When I
awoke Sunday morning I noticed that one of the puppy
pads had been removed from the package and was out
in the middle of the floor. It wasn’t quite spread
out flat, but almost. On closer inspection, I found
that the puppy pad had been used!! Sooooooo, at
some point during the night Babe needed to go to the
bathroom and since I was asleep, she pulled out a
puppy pad, somehow unfolded it and then used it.
Have you ever heard of anything so
extraordinary?????? She continues to amaze me each
and every day with how she thinks everything
through. As I have said before, I think she is the
reincarnation of a very smart person. I’m sure that
between your loving care at your beautiful farm
which gave her the great start she needed, and then
all of the classes I have put her through, plus
being with me almost every minute, going for walks,
shopping at Pet Smart, and many other experiences
have given her the time and capability to process
things perhaps more intelligently than most other
pets. Just from her constant “people” contact. I
don’t know what any of us have done to create this
“thinking” dog (and I even hate to call her just a
dog), but she is just the BEST!!!
Just a quick update on Chewiee.
He had his 16 week appointment with the vet
yesterday and weighed in at 38.8 pounds and is
doing great. He is already a great pup when it
comes to training. He sits and stays very well
and is learning to heel (pretty good right now,
but does like to grab the leash or your leg
occasionally). We are working on laying down and
come. Of course there is the constant challenge
of chewing/biting, but he is getting better at
both and the vet is pleased with how quickly he
stops when told to. It is a challenge for him to
sit patiently for his food until we give him the
release command. But once we do, it is like a
run away train to the bowl. He is very
talkative and has a big personality.
He is a wonderful pet who
absolutely loves kids even though he also likes
to chase them. We have told several people about
our positive experience with the Hitching Post
and that we will go back when we are ready for

We have been having so much fun with the puppies
that I haven't had time to write to you. They are
doing great and are so sweet. Newfie loves to
splash the water out of his water bowl. Typical
Newfoundland. Jazzy is such a sweetheart. The vet
said they are both in great shape and she said they

Just wanted to drop you a note to
update you on Tucker. He is doing
great! He has a "girlfriend" down the street who he
visiting every single day. Unfortunately he is quickly
and she may not want to play with him much longer. He
learned sit, stay,
and come in three days (one a day)! He is so sweet and
we have had no
problems with him whatsoever. We love him so much--he
is sweet but
mischievous too. The funniest thing about Tucker is how
popular he is! We go for walks
everyday, but we never actually "walk" because we end up
two or three houses so someone can pet him. All the
neighbors LOVE him
and they try to claim him as their own.
He is doing great--he really is
just the most wonderful dog!
Just wanted to get you a few update pictures of
Tucker since he is
about a year old now. He LOVES the snow and
therefore he has been
completely filthy for the last month. He is such a
sweetie and a major
traffic stopper everywhere he goes.
Thunder is such a blessing to our family- Kotschi-IL
Ryleigh is doing well. She
will be 10 months old next week and we adore her.
It has been a long time
since we had a puppy, but she
really does make us smile.
We have a motor home and she went on her
first camping trip last September. We have tried
her as many places as we can to let her
swim. My lab mix "Max" also likes
to go wading. She has
more then a half acre fenced
yard so she can run and explore and dig. When
spring comes she can
help me garden. When the
weather is better my husband Larry takes her for walks.
He also works on obedience.
Max and Ryleigh get along well except
when Max is not feeling well. He has a thyroid
Our only problem is her barking.
She is very vocal so we watch the times she is outside.
Before we got Ryleigh, we talked about
getting a rescue dog, but Ryleigh is our baby.
large baby, but our baby anyway.)
I wanted to send a picture
of Brady and let you know that we are loving him more
than we thought possible. He is incredible with all of
the people he meets - and we actually can't take him
places if we are in a hurry because of all the people
that stop us to meet him.
He is getting reunited with
his brother "Buddy" on Friday - I can't believe two of
these pups ended up in California only 20 minutes from
Thanks again for all you do,
Brady is doing well and
more fun the older he gets...he is our little man!

Hi Shari: What a delightful dog!
Crate training in progress. Does his thing outside, MOST
of the time. Had him examined by my vet, Dr. Roberta
Raymond of Blue Cross Pet Hospital here in Carmichael.
Checked out OK. Feeding him the Nutra product Natural
Choice for puppies of large breed to control growth.
Also the NuVet Plus . Weight 29 1/2 lbs. Thanks for this
great "Buddy". -Koch- CA
I purchased the
Gentle Leader yesterday, read the
the DVD a couple of times and this morning, with a
pocket full of
treats, struggled to place it on his heck and muzzle.
It was quite a
session. Finally, with it on (too loose on the neck, of

rolling, THEN I
tightened the neckpiece, adjusted to nosepiece, and off
we went for a
I simply can't believe the behavioral change in the
dog: It was as if
he were sedated. At first a few struggles, one more
rolling over on his
back, and then voila! Mister Cool Guy, head high,
(no pun intended) back and forth across our large front
with an occasional treat. After a bit, with just
off we went down the street toward where Buddy always
surged ahead to
reach a fenceline where joyous smells of horses, goats,

Grimly and I got an
early start this morning and got home right at noon.
He slept most of the way and I only made one stop.
Our Saints did great with him, but all the high
speed activity makes them a little nervous. We'll
keep an eye on him. We've noticed he only has two
speeds - full blast or off. He's a sweet little
bugger, but isn't too sure about the crate we got
for him. It's fun if it's his idea, but he sure
hates the door getting closed. I got him a real
cute black furry rug thing for the bottom. I picked
out black to hide the hair, but a black dog on a
black rug in a dark room makes for a pretty good
Thanks for Grimly, you
really run a first class operation
All is well in South
Carolina! Grimly has outgrown his biting stage
and has become the perfect gentleman (99% of the
time). He only has two of those dagger canines

those little daggers have no affect any more.
Thanks for a perfect
addition to our family.

Shari, you picked a great puppy for
me! I love Rosie and I couldn't be happier!!!
Let me tell you more about her! Rose gets into everything! If
it's not nailed down, it ends up in her mouth.
She snatches everything: shoes, towels, whatever.
Thanks to Rose, I now have to keep a tidy house!
(I wish that was true!!!) She loves her brothers, esp. Bear.
She knows to stay away from Jake. He must have
given her a strong warning signal in the yard at a
time I wasn't present. However, Rose is getting
bolder with him.. Bear's neck is finally healing
from the scabs he had as a result of Rose constantly
hanging from his neck. He is the submissive type
and never corrected Rose for attacking his neck during
Rose is getting well socialized.
We go to Debbie's house and she has three
goldens. Debbie invites other dog people and their
dog(s) so Rosie has met other dogs there. Rose has been a lady when my family
visits. She has been very good with my great
niece , who is three, and my great nephew, who is one.
Rosie is a talker and I love that!
Occasionally she makes a complete circle with her
mouth and bellows out! Wish you could see it for
yourself. While Rose can be a "ball of
fire", overall she is a very calm dog. She
has a wonderful personality and should make a great
therapy dog. By the way, my vet is in love with
her and thinks Rose is a really sweetie!
House training went very well.
At first I was worried because of my work schedule.
The two weeks I had off for Christmas made all the
difference. She hasn't had an accident (and they
occurred only when I was at work) since I don't know
Again, thank you for picking me such
a wonderful dog. Rosie is a joy to have.
Good things come to those who wait and I got myself a
Hope all is well at the farm.
You have a beautiful place and your dogs are the
happiest I've ever seen. All your hard work,
dedication, and love shows and is appreciated by those
of us who are lucky enough to purchase your puppies.
At 1 year Rosie
is still the sweetest dog I have ever owned.
There is not one ounce of meanness in that dog.
Rosie is a quiet dog unless when she is trying
to talk to you. As a therapy dog in
training, Rosie is doing grief therapy at a
hospital. This hospital has a grief
program for children between the ages of 5-17
who have lost either a parent, sibling,
grandparent, etc. They have found that
some kids open up when they have a dog to hold
or pet. This past week one girl started
crying as she told her story. Rosie licked
away the tears from her cheeks and eyes.
Rosie must of thought while she was at it she
might as well clean the girls ears. When
Rosie did that, the girl broke into a great big
smile and started to giggle. Rosie did her
job that night. Life with Rosie is easy.
She's very laidback. She plays a little
and sleeps a lot. She loves everyone she
meets and she is crazy about kids. She is
118 lbs. of love and sweetness.

Ingo is doing great. We just love him.
He loves to go for nice walks every day. He also
loves the boardwalk. His is training very well.
He learned to sit, paw, and lay down very quickly.
He loves treats. He is super smart so he learns
everything very fast. At his last Vet visit on Jan.
3rd, he already weighed 50 lbs. I was so surprised.
She said he looks great! He goes again on Feb. 2nd
and I guess I will be surprised again. He is still
puppy biting and trying to assert himself, but we make the
corrections right away and make sure he gets exercise
every day. We really love him. My children
want to come to the farm so bad to see his mom and dad.
Hopefully one day soon we can take a trip to visit.
I am sending some new pictures to you in the mail today.
He is beautiful. My husband is crazy about him and
told me he was the best gift he ever received. Thanks

Cephus has been the joy in our lives. He
is such a pretty dog. He is great in the house, great
with kids and other dogs. He does not like cats though.
The older he gets the better he gets. He is about 115
lbs. right now. He is solid muscle. We take him walking,
running, and swimming all the time. He is getting so
smart, ( he can open all doors). He is getting to be a
great companion. He is so gentle, sweet, and loving. He
demands 100% attention at all times. He is still a big
baby at heart, and we love him like he is our kid. We
could never have another kind of dog again. Thank you
for giving us our love and joy. We would like to get him
a girlfriend that he could play with, hopefully at the
end of this year. We love every second spent with him.

I hope you & your family had a wonderful time this
Holiday, we spent ours at our cabin at north. As you
can imagine, Denali was in heaven. All she did was play on
the snow, ate the snow - she had a blast! I just
want to let you know the we all are in love with her -she is
our little baby and we can not imagine being without her!
I CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU
HOW WONDERFUL T-BOE IS. I CAN'T BELIEVE I ALMOST
GAVE UP WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER--PLEASE GIVE MY NUMBER TO
ANYONE THAT IS HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING THROUGH THE
DIFFICULT THINGS. THESE DOGS ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE AND IT
SCARES ME TO THINK THEY CAN PUT A DOG IN A YARD AND GIVE
HIM A DISH OF FOOD--THESE ARE SO MUCH LIKE YOUR CHILDREN.
DAVID HAS TO GO TO MD ANDERSON IN APRIL AND WE JUST CAN'T
BOARD HIM--HE REALLY MISSES US WHEN THERE'S A CHANGE IN
HIS DAILY SCHEDULE.
T IS BEAUTIFUL--AND YES REGAL--HAS TO HAVE HIS FOOD IN A
CHINA PLATE. GETS ON OUR BED EVERY NIGHT TO WATCH TV
-PUTS HIS HEAD ON A PILLOW- SAYS GOODNIGHT AND GOES TO HIS
ROOM WHICH IS OUR MASTER BATH THAT WE HAVE GIVEN UP.
WISH I THOUGHT I COULD LIVE THROUGH ANOTHER PUPPY AS HE
LOVES DOGS AND IT WOULD HAVE TO BE BIG. WE MAKE OUR
CHILDREN SICK BUT WE ARE SO HAPPY.
THANKS FOR LETTING ME GUSH.

She had her first vet appointment Wednesday 9/6
- and she is in good health. We are
following your instructions to the "T"! We
had a great time at our mountain cabin - and

Thank-you so much for helping our Wrigley with the
loss of our two Goldens. Winnie was just what we all
needed ! She went to the vet, and they
said she was in
perfect health and what a beautiful Newfie. Winnie
is a very quick learner
Chris has got her to sit, shake, high five and down.
Although she has NO
patience when she knows were going on our walk.
thinks should be
all the time. We bought her a harness, and she walks
right next to my leg. Your farm is beautiful !!
Anyone looking for a loving, honest
and CARING breeder
needs to see Shari. The Hitching Post Family Farm
also, just doesn't sell
you a puppy, she is there for your phone calls and
e-mails and here to help
you out !!
Thank-you Again we will stay in touch !

I've taken a couple pictures of
Maggie since we brought her home. Her vet
visit went great today, she's in good health and
got her 16 wk shots. She's 42lbs and
getting big already!
She's still having some accidents
in the house, but overall is catching on quick
to house training. She's a smart dog. She
loves our Samoyed, Logan, and our daughter,
We're so glad we bought her, she's
most definitely became a member of our family.
Hi Shari, well here is Dutch at 6 months old, and as you can see.......he loves to lay by the pool. The lounge chair has become his.
He is such a wonderful addition to our family. So smart and just the biggest mush!!!
We couldn't have chosen a better breed.
Thank you so much for everything. -Imondi- RI
I just wanted to drop a line to say
hello and a big thank you again for our
little girl Newfie ... Lady. She and our 4 yr old
son Tyler are the
best of friends (she's
wonderful with our 2 yr old son Matthew as well).
Lady and Tyler do EVERYTHING together. Where ever
Tyler is, Lady isn't too
far away. She lays next
to him while he reads, and he shows her the pictures
in his books. She even watches TV! We get such a
kick out of it! We were
watching Lady and the
Tramp (that's also how she got her name ... Tyler
named her Miss Lady and still calls her "Oh Miss
Lady Ma'am!) the other
night and Lady was right
there barking at the TV, then actually sat and
watched the movie with us. We've never laughed
What a fantastic dog! She is so
gentle with the kids and while giving kisses
taking treats. No nipping at all. She's truly won
the hearts of everyone
we know. She has really
been an absolute delight to own (and to show off).
Everyone in our family thinks she is THE most
GORGEOUS dog they've ever
seen! My Aunt (who is
NOT a dog person) is madly in love with her!
Lady and our 17wk old Saint Bernard, Bear, are just
a riot together. They
love each other, give each
other actual kisses, sleep together and
everything. My husband Matt and I are just so happy
with both dogs. But Matt
wanted me to email you
again to thank you because Lady is just such a
wonderful pup! She's very well behaved (still has
accidents in the house
sometimes if we're not
quick enough to the door) but at night she NEVER has
We can't tell you enough what a
great pup she is. We brag to everyone and
favorite thing to do is take them everywhere. She
LOVES riding in the
truck. She sits up so proud
and obediently. All of our family and friends
just love her and our Bear. And they've both gotten
SO incredibly big.
I'm so glad we found you
and our Lady. She's just a love and we can't thank
you enough. She's really completed our family (I
finally have another girl
in the house!) So thank
you again and I will be sending you some updated
pictures very soon.
A big thanks from the Berube Family from Mass.
Ella keeps our other dogs Bear and
Rudy on the go. She has claimed every chair in the
house as her domain. She absolutely loves the water.
Thanks so much. We just love her!
I just wanted to let you know that Ginger,
my Newfie, is doing great!!!! She has adjusted
very well and is the happiest little girl! She loves
following Daisy around and has already made many new
friends.... (furry and not furry). I am so happy
with her and I just wanted to thank you again for making
this blessing possible. She has a wonderful
personality and disposition. Ginger is a puppy that
loves the beach and her big sister Daisy.
I could not be happier!!!!

"Ginger is my best friend"
Ginger and I are doing
wonderfully here on Nantucket! our summers
here are very intense as the summer is the
height of our tourist season. We moved our store
this year closer to the wharf in town and what a
move it was! We were so busy my head is still
spinning!!! I think Ginger got more beach time
than I did this summer! Ginger is the most
loving dog and very entertaining! She is quite
sassy and it cracks me up every day. She is
stubborn (like me) and has her moments when she
decides chasing bunnies is much more fun than
coming to me... but overall she is the best!
She NEVER runs out of energy. Ginger comes to
the store everyday that I work for at least part
of the day until one of her many admirers takes
her for walks or to the beach. Everyday is a
new adventure for her. She is so easy going and
loves to be included in EVERYTHING.... even if
it's just a car ride to the convenience store.
These are some of the activities Ginger partakes
in: beaching (she loves the water and is an
incredible swimmer even in big waves), boating,
off-shore fishing (she freaks out every time a
fish is hooked and guards it with her life once
it is on board), digging for clams (which she
actually does--- so funny), snorkeling for
scallops, visiting my brother up at Skidmore
College in Saratoga Springs, NY (they have the
best dog friendly hotel), and of course romping
around with her many doggy friends (most of my
friends have dogs). I even brought Ginger to a
Patriots game and she tailgated with us and wore
her Teddy Bruschi jersey. Her best times are
perhaps at my friends farm where she roams free
with dogs, horses, donkeys, pigs, miniature
horses, goats, cats, and even alpacas! Ginger
also has the best relationship with my parent's
brown newf, Daisy, who is 5--- they have a real
Sorry to go on and on, but I cannot imagine my
life without her!!! We literally do everything
together. Ginger still loves her crate and is
quite petite... she is just a bit over 100 lbs.
and maintains a very healthy appetite! I think
her smaller size has something to do with her
impressive athletic abilities. I have never
seen a more agile and fast newf... and I have
had newfs my whole life! It is great because we
can go jogging together in the woods... she is
definitely keeping me in shape and on my feet!
Anyway, she is in excellent health and other
newf owners (there are quite a few here) always
comment on how healthy and beautiful she is.
She is also quite smart... which made training
her easy and then difficult once she learned how
to read us.... my dad always calls her ginger
the genius (jokingly).
The last thing I will tell you is that she is
the perfect dog for me. My family is constantly
telling me how alike we are (especially when she
acts goofy). I also always hear, "you two look
so much alike!" Her coloring is amazing and she
has incredible highlights from being on the
ocean all summer. Not to boast about my own
looks... she is the prettier one. It is just so
funny because our coloring and body types really
are so similar!
Thank you, Shari, for my partner in crime!!!

All is going well her, Sioux Pooh did
well of the plane, she slept on both flights almost the
entire time, she is liking AZ. We're really enjoying
her. She has learned the "doggie door" very well and is
housebroken, still likes to chew a bit. We have put
together a few of the Major Commands for her and we ask
visitors at the house to use them if they would, she
definitely knows her name. The vet and her staff love
to see her, they even took photos of her when she came for
her shots. We love her dearly and Jasper, the cat, is
even finding that she is tolerable. Sioux Pooh is
truly a blessing to our family and we want to Thank You for
letting her become a member of our family. We are
intending on training her to be a "Therapy Dog".

Sioux Pooh's first therapy visit
The new cordless Hoover Vacuume
I wanted to tell you all about what the experience of having
Sioux Pooh as a Therapy Dog ha
been. For the last 3 or 4 weeks there was a friend of ours
Father who was diagnosed with Bone
Cancer. He was in the hospital, where Sioux Pooh and I go
for Therapy Dog work.
Well Mr Miller passed away a week ago and I went to the
funeral home to pay our respects.
When I walked in I was greeted by my friend, Bill, and we
spoke for a moment, I then went with
Bill to visit his mother and saw she was talking with a
group of friends and family members.
I stood for a moment when Mrs. Miller caught a glimpse of
me, she stopped speaking and these
few words conspired.
She pointed at me, said, 'That is Bear, and he brought his
dog, Sioux Pooh, everyday to the
hospital for the 3 weeks Adrian (her husband) was in the
hospital. And the Joy that Adrian
experienced was overwhelming, he would rub her ears and talk
to her and would Smile so much
I can only tell you how much those visits meant to us all.
For the Joy that Adrian experienced
those last weeks was enough to help him and us through this
wanted to check in with you and let you know that
everything is going great for Miss Osa...she is a
bundle of fun and a VERY smart little girl!! I can't
believe it but she already is potty trained (well
pretty close), knows sit and shake and is very
alert!! Osa and I go out and work in the
garden together and it has been raining alot so she
loves to roll in the wet grass. 9 week doctors visit
went well and said that she seemed to be forming
great and was in perfect health. -Lauren Lay-
