Ok. So they're here... *sigh* :D

They were awesome in the car, but when they met Jemma and Boo... *sigh* I was watching Pablo, when Leila was the troublemaker... She fought a little with Jemma and Boo, trying to get them to stay away from Pablo... It's calmish now... Jemma and Boo are staying away from Leila... Boo growls at Pablo here and there, but we try to stop him really quickly because that's what sets Leila off...

Ok, so that was the bad news. Here's the good news. :D

They're soooo cuddly and lovely! Pablo is a velcro dog. He pushes and pushes until you pet him. Right now, he's giving me a break from the petting... But if I move... :D He walks in front of you and stops and puts all his weight into it so you have to walk around the back of him to keep going.. hehe...

Leila is so excited to see toys. She chewed on a kong for about a 1/2 hour, then I brought her inside and she buried it in a sofa. We covered everything with towels to try to help with the nervous saliva situation...:D

Ok. So pics, eh?
I think I used up my smilies, so I'll post this...

Oh, I forgot, the neighbor who had lots of questions when we fostered Lily was outside when we arrived, so there was no hiding from him.:D So he came over and met them and fell in love.:D

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 07:07 PM
First little accident... :eek: :o Pablo's a little more subtle with his signs... Leila asks for the door, but Pablo asks us... But he's always asking us for stuff, so it's hard to tell the difference... We'll get the hang of it. :D

Pablo barked once so far... That's about it. :D

April 18th, 2007, 07:08 PM
They're gorgeous. :lovestruck: and look so nice and clean now. :cloud9: They could use a little exercise though but don't imagine that's going to be a problem. :D

Pablo does look like a big goofball so you'll get lots of laughs with his antics. :crazy: Things should settle down with Leila once she gets used to her new surroundings. :goodvibes:

Glad your neighbour fell in love with them but then who wouldn't? :lovestruck:

Hope you've stocked up on film cuz I'm looking forward to lots more pics. :D

Prin I hope the wet concrete in the Pablo "Can I come in" picture isn't all drool:eek: They look soooo different, now they'll look fabulous when the hair comes back in. Lucky dogs to have you and the man. I really hope that they all settle down well. Leila will figure it out eventually I guess. Nobody will hurt her baby boy. That's so cute. Well have a good night!!! You guys rock!

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 07:13 PM
Yeah...:D He speaks the same newf dialect as Lily, it seems.:D

Wow - they look so different without all that hair.

I have thought about fostering but with two dogs already I thought it would be a lot to take on so I commend you! Especially since they are so big! They are lucky dogs!

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 07:33 PM
So they're not too hungry... They were all excited when I opened the bag, but when I put it down... Not so much.:D Pablo ate a bit, Leila ate next to nothing. :rolleyes: She's a little more stressed than Pablo though.

Oh and no, it's not all drool. When Leila drinks, she sticks her whole face in the bowl... But she's cleaner than that in the house though. :)

rainbow
April 18th, 2007, 07:39 PM
Yeah, they're probably too excited to eat. Do you know what they were being fed before?

Does Leila leave lots of drool floating in the water bowl? :D

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 07:48 PM
Together they don't leave as much as Lily yet... :) But my god the drool! I'm so not used to it. I hope Jemma and Boo don't learn from them at all.:D

I can't wait to get settled... Leila already knows how to use sofas and even pillows on sofas, so I'm pretty impressed. She must have been spoiled in a past life. :cloud9:

They're both so sweet. :cloud9:

Hopefully things will settle down soon and all the doggies will work it out.:fingerscr

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 08:24 PM
This is the first time the dogs have been wayyy bigger than both of them. Usually Jemma and Boo put the newbie in its place and move on... Not happening this time.. The two biggies are undoubtedly the king and queen of this doggy pack...

Yeah it is going to take some time. They should work it out after a while, they all have to get a feel for each other. When the Newfs settle in and relax more after all the excitement, Jemma and Boo may feel more relaxed as well:fingerscr

EEK!!!!!! Poor things are all nakie now! Prin, can you check Leila for a Tatoo please. It would either be faded in her ear or on her inside thigh or just above by the tummy. Got a call from the Breed Club today and they recognize Leila's look so want to make sure it's not a dog from a particuliar breeder. The breeder is overseas presently so they want to be able to notify her of the dogs whereabouts if it's one of hers. More for tracking purposes and followup than anything else. From the looks of things, Leila had pups huh... I think I placed one or two of her last two litters.. two landseers.. sigh

Hunter's_owner
April 18th, 2007, 08:33 PM
Prin, Pablo and Boo are touching:eek: That seems like a good sign.

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 08:34 PM
Pablo has a tatoo for sure... On his swelly areas... I sawr it before... :o

I'll go check Leila.

BMDLuver
April 18th, 2007, 08:36 PM
IM me the tattie numbers if you can read them. If Pablo has a tatoo then I think I know where he comes from which explains why he's such a nice specimen of the breed. Pity followup is not always so good but people talk a good talk.

Wow Prin, they're finally here! I was thinking about them all day at work, then I went out to dinner with the inlaws, so I had to wait until now to see the pics. They look so good. They probably feel so good without all that matted fur. Are they soft, cause they look soft.

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 10:06 PM
They're pretty soft... Their coats are a little dry, so once we fix that, they should be softer.:) So... http://bestsmileys.com/sleeping/4.gif I'm sorry, did you say something? http://bestsmileys.com/sleeping/4.gif :D

Prin
April 18th, 2007, 11:08 PM
Thanks.:)

They're actually really hot generally. Leila wakes up every now and then for a long pant fest... It's hard because you really can't stop petting them once you start... They just keep asking for more. It's kind of heartbreaking.:o But at the same time, I have all the time in the world to pet them.:) (Except for the sleep I so so so need right now...:D)

I just look at Leila now enjoying the pets, and I remember her less than a week ago, so matted that you couldn't even get to her skin. :sad: I can't even imagine how they feel and what they felt. All I know is they haven't scratched anything yet. I mean, Jemma and Boo scratch fairly often, but these two- never. They must feel so good and unitchy... :cloud9:

Jemma's asleep with her daddy on the sofa as usual... Leila's on Boo's sofa... Pablo is on the floor beside me... And Boo's crammed under the diningroom table kind of sulking. :o

Aww, poor Boo - too much excitement I guess! Needs some extra TLC from mommy! The Newfies are cute!! (as Newfies usually are!) You'll have to learn to speak and and understand the language of the Rock Prin, <g>

Their faces look a but like black labs - at that age. I never noticed that in full grown Newfies tho. Fortunately, my friend that had three had a HUGE house - and still, they were kept busy with the vacuum!! (as you can imagine!). They are beautiful dogs!! I have a large house but even I am not sure I have enough room - tho I did entertain my brother, 2 kids and one choc lab and one lassa apso last w/e- you can imagine Siamese if you please, Sphynx who love to climb, a choc lab who needs to be next to someone all the time., an 18 month old trailing the lab (She ran into him at one point, walking, and she petted him and gave him a kiss as if to say "I'm sorry", lol) and one with lassatude - actually not that much to, she seems to be a great dog!! But likes to be in a lap.

Anyway - good luck with the Newfies!!!! I hope they both get the good wonderful forever homes they deserve!

:pawprint: They are beautiful Prin, you are an angel for fostering them. But 2 times the drool, oh, who am I kidding I would have another in a minute if I could. Get Mr Clean erasers it takes the slingers off the walls when they dry not the paint. I especially like when Bud finishes drinking and wipes his face on my leg or sleeve. You will never be clean again. Have fun and I hope all the kids adapt to each other well. Good luck

I'm still shaking from the muscle soreness and fatigue. :D It took me a long time last night to figure out that they're both afraid of the dark and until I did, what work that was! Two newfs in full out panic mode... :yell: Leila even made herself sick. So then I turned on a light, and all was calm.:rolleyes: They slept about 5 hours after that and then woke me up again to go out. Thank goodness they's housetrained. :cloud9:

My man's been really great about it though. He took care of them this morning so I could sleep an extra hour... He played with them outside and everybody seems to be pleasantly avoiding eachother today...

Oh, Leila is sooo sore though. Poor doggy. I guess she's not used to being up and about this much, even though, really, she's not moving all that much. Poor doggy. She needs some muscle mass...

They barely ate yesterday, and my whole house smells of medi-cal anyway, so I decided to move up the switch... They got about 3 cups today (each), and one was the Canidae lamb and rice... A little fish oil, little coconut oil and they both wolfed down their whole bowlfuls.:cloud9:

I have pics... Just have to download them again.:D

Frenchy

Prin
April 19th, 2007, 01:07 PM
It's funny because the newfs ask to be pet so much (well, less today than yesterday, which is awesome), and when I go to pet Boo, I somehow expect his fur to be different, but it's pretty well the same as these shaved newfs, especially on his head. His thighs are like bunnies, and the newfs aren't there yet.:D

Poor Boo - I'd say give him an Oscar but he's probably not acting. He looks so very sad. I hope he and Jemma are getting special cuddle time alone with mom and dad. They deserve it.

Hard to imagine the tewfs being afraid of the dark! Wonder where that would have come from.

I don't know if I missed something about the pooches, but they obviously were well fed (not groomed, but fed) and slept on the furniture (you go Leila), how did they end up in rescue?

What about a couple of night lights in the house? Would that help?

Prin
April 19th, 2007, 04:16 PM
Well, I left one light on in the bay window last night and that seemed to do the trick. Boo was also really helpful. He slept with the tewfs all night. :cloud9:

I have no idea why they're afraid of the dark though. I only figured it out when I was with Pablo in the back yard and he wouldn't go on the half of the yard that's pitch black in the shadows of the deck. I couldn't drag him in there. I mean, he just sat and became a sack of potatoes and just would not move. Poor doggy. It makes it really hard to get them to go at night though. The lights outside aren't bright enough. :rolleyes:

Ok, first movie of the Tewfs... We just went for a longish walk (long in Newf terms) and this is the drooly aftermath.:D

Oh, they think it might have been a divorce and both parties didn't want the doggies, so they just got put outside...:o But yeah, Leila knew how to use a pillow and everything. They were obviously cared for before.

They look great,it must be wonderful for them to loose all that matted hair and a great home to boot.
I don't think many people would do what you are doing for these guys,not that they don't deserve,it sure is good to see them happy.
Hopefully Boo and Jemma will adjust :fingerscr

Thanks Chico. :) When we came back from our walk, my neighbor was surprised we still had all 4.:D She figured we'd lose one on the way for sure. :laughing: I'm trying to convince her that they're great apartment dogs, but being that she's a grandmother (not that that implies anything :D), I don't think she'll apply.:D

Today was better... Only one incident between Leila and Boo... my man took off in a short jog ahead of us and when we caught up, Leila went for Boo... :frustrated: "Do I know you?" pause... "No, I don't think so!" *lunges* :rolleyes:

But they're great walking. They can stay focused ahead and they never sniff. How weird is that? :D

I like how Pablo likes to keep his belly exposed just in case a belly rub might be in the area ;) . You're right though, they really do not have much muscle tone :sad: but I'm sure that will improve with some good food, lovin and exercise :) .

Thanks for givin us some Boo and Jemma shots too :o , they look like they are adapting.

hehe, the door is open, it's warm and sunny out, and Leila's rope reaches all the way into the house onto the sofa.:D Pablo is just sitting right by the door.:D

Jemma and Boo are ok. Jemma's going about her independent ways as any cat would... Boo is lounging outside, hanging around more than usual.:D ("If I leave, they might replace me...")

Pretty peaceful here... Pablo is soooo getting a bath today though. The smell! Not sure if it's residue from before or residue from the river, but whatever it is, it's coming off today! :D Hopefully, anyway.

Awww, Prin, lucky you! You have so much doggie love in your house right now.

I hope that Jemma and Boo become a bit more accepting...I am sure it will just take a few days for everything to settle. Maybe they'll even end up in a group cuddle! OH what a picture that would be! :cloud9:

They look so happy, you are doing a great job. They are lucky to have you taking such good care of them.

I would never get anything done...I would just spend my day hugging them...of course hugging Jemma & Boo as well.

Good luck with the bath! :eek: ;)

The bath went ok... I doused him with warm water first, scrubbed him down and then tested the hose on him.. He didn't care at all. :eek: Leila wanted some too.:D Funny doggies. They're totally water dogs all the way. In the water, out of the water, it's all the same to them.:D :highfive:

I saw a Landseer in the pet store a couple weeks ago...he was *huge*, Sable could walk right underneath him! He was all matted too, I wanted to steal him and take him home with me. Definitely added newfs to the list of dog breeds I must own before I die. (which is now about 20 pages long. :D )

Boo seems ok... Maybe he didn't get any fast enough... I'll only know in a couple days though. Jemma's less swollen than before because I gave her a 1/2 a benadryl, but now her stomach is gurgly from the benadryl. :rolleyes:

Oh, and yeah, rainbow... I think he really does have allergies, but I also think part of it is programmed into him... Like "see a golden start sneezing". That's why I want him to get the allergy test too- to change his emotional allergies...

It's really sad. But Leila just giving up is so sad too. :sad:

If there were ever a pair of dogs that were to be Pets.ca's mascot, they would be them. I think they have captured the hearts of everyone here and I am loving watching them being loved. (especially when the drool is contained to your house :laughing: )

I love how in the video of Leila with her kong, she is lying on a bed that is only like half her size. Giant doggies! :) And they are adorable when they are sleeping and snoring and twitching!

I like how they understand french! I would get mixed up though. Right now the 3 dogs at my house were trained in 3 different languages (english, german, czech) and it just gets too confusing, I forget which dog speaks which, and so sable has learned all 3 languages.

Keep those videos coming!! I need my daily dose of newfies! :D

Hi, Im not familiar with ur story but from what i could gather from the first page is that maybe these dogs came from somewhere else and you have taken them it?

Fistly congrats on ur new babies they are lovely and wow what a difference a haircut makes....
Pablo is very nice looking!!!
And Leila looks very over fed lol, does she have any back issues at all? she is very high in the rear which could give her trouble (given her massive size and no doubt weight)....

She lookos so much happier in the pic taken after her clip, its like she is saying " thank god for that" ....

wish you all the best with these two:thumbs up

Yeah, Mischiefmaka, I'm trying to do something about the chubbers.:D They both have pretty poor muscle tone, especially Leila, but just walking every day, they're getting a little bit more energetic.:)

So, uh .... is that swelling from the neuter or just big empty sacs cause he was an adult when he was neutured?

The drool is predictable, so I'm managing.

Drink... drool.
Eat... drool.
Watch me eat... drool.
Exercise a lot... drool.
Nervous... drool.

So anytime there is one of those, I get the towel ready. It's actually not that bad. :) As they settle in, it's becoming clearer that they are going to be really, really missed when they get their new home.. They really are great dogs. :lovestruck: :o

I actually managed to get her all rowdy tonight.:D I slammed her on the sofa a little and she got all pawy and excited.:D It was pretty funny. :) She's such a gentle doggy. :cloud9:

We walked way too far today by accident... There was a woman looking for her dog, and about halfway home, we found somebody who had the dog, so we went back to find the lady, yadda yadda, Leila was walking behind me by the time we got home... I hosed her down to cool her off (which she loved) and then she chilled out. We pushed them so hard today, and it just seemed to activate them. :cloud9:

They are beautiful dogs. :lovestruck: It's amazing how big a difference you can already see in them. Not just their coats and the physical things, but in their posture and especially in their eyes. What a difference a little TLC can make!

Pablo made it nearly 10 hours without peeing...:o The twit would not go out last night before I went to bed. I tried twice, and he just flipped onto his side and got heavy. He was having a good sleep and full bladder or not, he wasn't going anywhere.:D We haven't had any accidents in the house since the second day, which is awesome! I've never had housetrained fosters before. :D :highfive:

I walked Pablo for the first time by myself today... He was a little draggy the first few days, and so my man walked him, but today, the man was gone, so I had no choice. What an awesome doggy to walk! Both are. They just like the walk, unlike labs who like the destination. :cloud9:

I just can't believe nobody has snatched them up yet. What amazing, amazing doggies they are. :cloud9:

And do they have to stay as pair?? Great job to you Prin for all your love and attention to them! :thumbs up

Prin
April 24th, 2007, 08:06 PM
I think if you come get them then maybe (BMD is in charge of the adoption stuff), but they definitely won't be flying anywhere. We'd rather they stay together because they do rely on each other, but that may change as they chill out.

That last snoring video scared the crap outta my cats. They are laying with me and I had the sound on my laptop turned right up. They about jumped out of their skin. :laughing: I don't think I could sleep through that loud of snoring. :eek: Dracko will lightly snore at times and I think it is so cute. Love it when his feet jerk, too.

Jemma gives the best "surprised" poses when you get close ups of her like that.

I am glad to see Boo allows the dogs to "touch" him at least and they aren't fighting.

Cracked a Kong! Goodness, Leila is a very strong girlie. Good thing that Newfs are so gentle, if they have that kind of jaw strength!:eek:

But I guess if you think about it, they were bred to help out on boats and docks and can be trained to pull small boats through the water by tugging on ropes :eek: :eek: so they need that kind of strength.

Bet Leila could wear out Boo playing tug of war!;)
