    Default Newfienut...in Here Please.

    Hi,

    Went to see puppies on weekend. Updated in my other thread, but that's way old, so thought I'd catch you here. Lol.

    The breeder reckons she knows your George and he is the brother to Voodoo, the mother of this litter. How old is George, or has she got the wrong George???

    George was born 29-02-08 (leap year puppy) from Krystalcove Kennels in Clyde, VIC. I'm sure there's a few George Newfs out there though, I've met a few Bob and Franks so it seems people commonly give man names to their Newfies!

    How were the puppies?

    They were great, and noisy! One was the noisiest, that was the one my son liked the most. Figures! Gosh I hope I don't end up with him - he never shut up!

    Voodoo was born in early 2007, so she's definately got the wrong George. Oh well.
    This breeder likes to run them on until 12 weeks, but it seems she will part with puppy before then. Can't wait. The boys will buy all my brushes, combs etc for me as Christmas presents, so I'll have to make do with them till January.

    Yeah I wasn't able to pick up George till he was 10 weeks so I think it's quite common, although I'm sure some people would say that you miss out on quality bonding time! I remember George was quite loud when I went to pick him up, although by that stage a lot of his brothers and sisters had left him. He is as quiet as a mouse now so I don't think it's a good indication of what they'll be like when they grow up.

    I'm sure the breeder has already told you what brushes to buy, but make sure you do buy those ones! I bought a quite expensive brush that I thought was doing it's job, but it wasn't!! I've now been told I need a rake comb with rotating pins, and slicker brush with curved metal bristles (they pick up the hair better than straight bristles) and the bigger the better!!

    Pup will love being groomed by the kids and it will be a great bonding time!

    Thanks Newfienut. I have my list for the kids, but I will be showing them which brushes and combs I need. God help me if I left it up to them to choose. Then again, they might have an idea as I used to run a grooming salon in Qld for a couple of years.

    Slickers - the biggest they have these days! Lol.
    Must say, the noisiest one was a real sook, and he DID have the loveliest markings.

    Having grooming experience will be a BIG plus for you!! I wish I had some! I hear Landseers tend to have less joint problems and are often taller in the legs- not sure if it's true, but interesting all the same

    I've never groomed a ruddy great big Newfoundland though, Newfienut! Ah well, done a lot of poodles, can't be that bad.

    Just took George to the off leash dog park. First time he's been there since his 'extreme makeover' and people seemed even more perplexed as to what breed he is!!

    LMAO!!! Do you blame them. Lol. I showed George to my husband, both the shot of him in coat and after he'd been to the groomers (ah-hum) and he nearly died. He laughed so much I thought he was gonna choke.

    So, what did you tell them??? The science experiment one, or did you come up with another mix?
