Newfoundland Dogs

Since our Golden "Rascal" had to be euthanized a couple years ago, I've been missing having a dog in the house. I need a companion and a set of acute ears. Newfoundlands are amazing big dogs with a lot of love for their humans. The only problem is with both of us working, house training a puppy would be challenging. We'll see.

This picture was taken at the Water Safety Days event at Blue Marsh Lake near Reading. He belongs to one of the members of the New-Pen-Del Newfoundland Club.

Groundhog (last) Day

Elvis has left the premises. He's still on the planet, just not here.
