  • Dogs And Pressure Sores And How We Are Dealing With Them

    from My Brown Newfies

    Pressure sores, hygromas or decubital ulcers are wounds that are caused when the bony part of the body such as the elbows, hocks or hips rest for an extended amount of time on a hard surface which restricts blood flow to that area resulting in dead tissue and/or calluses. Often this happens to dog who are seriously ill or injured and are confined for long periods of time.

    Pressure sores can be seen in any breed of dog but large and giant dogs seem to be more at risk for developing them.


  • And Then This Happened

    The snow came before I had a chance to put the patio furniture away last week and an unfortunate chair took on a little bit of the white stuff.

    After a few days all the snow melted in the yard expect for the snow on the chair and Sherman and Leroy decided they would eat the remaining remnants.

    I watched from the window as they were doing it and then this happened

    Leroy decided he could get more snow if he stuck his head under the arm of the chair.

    I muttered from the window that I didnt think...

  • What Sherman Is

    Besides being the obvious Newfoundland dog, Sherman is also so much more to all of us.

    We go way back me and him and these are some of the things that Sherman is to me and some things you might have missed over the years.

    Sherman is a loyal friend and protector

    A study partner

    A show dog-AKA CH. Bydands The Chosen One

    A gentleman

    A goof

    A lifeguard

    A party animal

    An adventurer

    A taster tester.

    And my best friend.

    Happy 8th Birthday Sherman.

    Youre everything above and so much more.


  • Senior Sherman Needs A Senior Wellness Exam

    Depending on who you ask or what guidelines you go by, Sherman has been a senior for at least a year now. Typically, most dogs are considered a senior when they hit age 7 by veterinarian professionals.

    Giant breeds tend to be considered seniors a little younger than that.

    I considered Sherman a senior when he turned 6 which is when we put him in the program for senior dogs.

    Dont worry. Its not a nursing home.

    Its just some extra steps we take to make sure Sherman is staying happy and healthy like...

  • Sherman’s New Pep In His Step.

    from My Brown Newfies

    Monday November 10th, 2014 at 10:01 PM


    Last week the kids and Sherman and I headed to my parents house to help them clean up some leaves.

    When Sherman realized that he was going for a ride in the car he was a little excited, as he always is.

    Sherman has his routine when he gets in the car.

    He waits for me to open up the back, puts his front legs up and waits for me to hoist his lower half in.

    Hes had this routine since he was 3.

    So imagine my surprise when I went to hoist him up last week and before I could get in position he jumped...

    Welcome to Sherman Week!

    Its kind of like Shark Week but cuter and fluffier!

    This week this blog and all of our social media sites will be solely devoted to Sherman because on Friday Mr. Sherman turns 8!

    Its a big birthday for my big boy and since my birthday post for him last year was totally lame I decided I needed to make it up to him and devote a whole week gushing over him.

    I dont know if its just me or if every Newfie owner takes a deep breath when their Newf turns 8.

    Ive taken my deep...

  • All Is Well In Leroyville, Except He’s Trying To Eat It

    from My Brown Newfies

    Today I take Leroy in for another check of his weight, albumin levels and protein levels.

    Im kind of torn on how hes doing right now.

    Everyday he gives me signs that Im getting the old Leroy back.

    Yesterday he jumped in bed to wake me up which is something he hasnt been strong enough to do in quite a few for months.

    Monday we went for our longest walk that weve been on for months and while he seemed to walk a little slower I could tell he loved every second of it.

    His appetite is awesome and his...

  • How I Keep My Dogs From Eating Too Fast

    from My Brown Newfies

    Wednesday November 5th, 2014 at 10:01 PM


    Getting my dogs to eat slowly has always been a top priority to me since fast eating can lead to conditions such as bloat and choking.

    Both of them have always tried to be super speed eaters and act like theyve never been fed before.

    Because apparently, I starve them.

    Here are a few tips that have worked for me to keep my dogs from eating too fast over the years:

    Feed multiple meals. Both of my dogs get fed twice a day this way they arent woofing down one big meal all at once. Leroy currently...
