    Ive been having a little bit of trouble giving Leroy some of the medication that hes on.

    He can be quite stubborn and smart when it comes to taking pills and its normally just a matter of time before he catches onto my sneaky pill disguising ways.

    Not to mention the fact that he is extremely picky when it comes to eating something new so I have to be very careful in my pill disguise items of choice or Im left with a soggy pill that is melting in my hands as I try to cram it down his throat...

    When Sherman and Leroy get a bath we have a basic routine.

    They get wet.

    They get shampooed.

    They get rinsed.

    They get on the grooming table.

    They get dried.

    Weve done it this way since they were puppies and they know the routine well.

    So well, that if you falter at all from that routine they know it and they make sure to let let you know that they know.

    Just like Leroy let me know that I broke our bathing routine on Thursday when I gave him bath and decided that, since it was such a gorgeous day...

    As I mentioned in our post on Wednesday Sherman and Leroy are just beginning to blow their winter coats. This isnt a surprise and it happens twice a year every year and every year, we survive the fur explosion that consumes our house for a few weeks and try to have a little fun with it.

    Being a double coated breed its super important that Newfoundlands blow their thick winter undercoat so that they can comfortably make it through the summer months and as person who wants their dogs to be...

    Were in the midst of a hairy situation right now and its only going to get worse over the next few weeks.

    That little nest of hair above is only about 5 minutes of brushing.

    This big nest of hair below is about 20 minutes of brushing.

    This little dog of fur below, who happens to be named Harry, is going to multiply and have Harry babies all over my house and my yard.

    We encounter this hairy, or Harry, situation every spring when the Sherman and Leroy blow their coats, but whats different about...

  • Dog Toys That Turn Into Pillows

    Last week I hit the stores to search out some new toys for Sherman and Leroy.

    Theyve been extra good the past month, which is awesome but also a little scary because I feel that maybe this is the calm before the storm., but regardless, I felt they each deserved a new toy.

    Buying them toys is pretty easy because theyre both pretty particular when it comes to toys that they will actually play with.

    Leroy loves the plush toys that are shaped like bones and have a single squeaker in them.

    Super easy...

    Imagine this:

    Youre out for a nice relaxing walk with your dog.

    Your dog is sniffing away and your deep in the middle of a pretty awesome idea and then

    BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP.

    Somebody drives by in the car and honks their horn scaring the crap out of you and your dog.

    It takes you a few seconds to make sure that you havent went into cardiac arrest and by the time you actually have a chance to look at the person who honked their horn, theyre gone, so you continue walking muttering unkind words under...

  • An Easy, Safe And Clean Way To Check Your Dogs Urine From Home

    from My Brown Newfies

    Tuesday April 1st, 2014 at 10:01 PM

    Three days after Leroy came home from his abdominal surgery he began urinating more than normal and in quite a larger amount. When I took him to see the vet they tested his urine and found that he had a urinary tract infection.

    Leroy was put on antibiotics and we rechecked his urine about a week after he finished that course of medication.

    From what I was observing with Leroy and his urination patterns I thought that he seemed better, but not totally better. Urine tests at the vet confirmed...

    My daughter is very into the loom rubber band craze.

    She makes everything out of those colorful little rubber bands from bracelets and necklaces to cute little dogs for your key chain and she takes great pride in her work.

    Shes very organized when it comes to these little rubber bands and she has them all divided up by colors in plastic cases.

    When she runs low on certain color we head to the nearest craft store and stock up.

    You can buy the rubber bands in bags of single colors or bags of mixed...
