| Still another spot on the Web for Newf Lovers and
their very special companions!
NOTE: Before going further, please take a look at this. The following article was originally found on the Irish Wolfhound Association of New England's website, but as the condition of Bloat is quite common in other large breeds, particularly Newfoundlands, and having just experienced this devastating and often fatal disorder with our own Newfs, Abagale Evenstar, in early December of '04, I was compelled to share it with as many Newf owners as possible as quickly as possible.
To begin, I'd like to introduce the members of our
crew, past and present.
Our second, a girl. Omeeren Cara Brianna (Cara)
came to us in February of 1999,
at five months. A classic beauty with wonderful conformation, good bone
and a massive, strong head. And she moves like a breeze. I only wish we
had decided to show her! Ah, well. We have settled for just loving her.
And she's very good at that!
Our third, another little girl, was Tess. We called her "Mouse".
(It's a long story.) She came into our home at twelve or thirteen weeks.
Our first "real" baby Newf. What a treat! Even though we have other
pictures, this one has always been MY favorite. She was only about four
months old at the time. You can almost see into her soul here.
Now, that brings us up to of July, 2002. Another little girl,
Abagale Evenstar. She joined us at about thirteen weeks on the Fourth of
July Weekend. This is a picture of her a day or two after she came home.
Cool green grass under the big silver maple. She looks very comfy.
Now there are times when this little lady (well, about 90 lbs. at just
under 11 months) reminds me of Tess. These two do not look alike, but Abby
is very much like Tess was in some ways.
By the Bay, 09/05.
Well now! A new addition came to us in August of 2004. A little 15 month old girl from Homeport Kennels.
Her name is Homeport's Dolphin (quite ironically, we named her when she was just 12 weeks old! Never knew she'd be ours at the time!).
She's been here over a year now and we're so glad to have her. Very cuddly and loving.
October of 2005 has brought another girl to our home. Her name is
(BTW, she is our dear Cara's neice. We can see a bit of her in those lovely, brown eyes.)
