  • A Thanksgiving Wish For You

    from My Brown Newfies

    Tuesday November 25th, 2014 at 10:01 PM


    This Thanksgiving, as Im gathered around the table with my family getting ready to eat myself silly, we will all go around the table and say what we are thankful for.

    It will be the usual stuff.

    We are thankful for our family and friends.

    For our health.

    And to all be together.

    We are blessed.

    I know that and you know that but what worries me at this time of the year is that some people overlook how blessed they are.

    The holidays can be a very lonely and stressful time for some and I can totally...

    A few weeks ago I was contacted by Quaker Pet Group to see if I would be interested in featuring some of their products in holiday gift guide.

    Im a big fan of the Quaker Pet Group since they are the master minds behind our all time favorite dog toy, the goDog Furballz, so I jumped at the chance to try out some of their newer products that are available just in time for the holidays.

    Besides their adorable collection of holiday goDog toys, (the dinosaur is my personal favorite) and their very...

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

    from My Brown Newfies

    Tuesday November 18th, 2014 at 10:01 PM


    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...

    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

    from My Brown Newfies

    Wednesday November 12th, 2014 at 10:01 PM


    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.
