I’ve got to be honest, I’m mega happy about todays Dogs of the Day! Since I’ve started my blog I’ve wanted to meet a Newfoundland because they’re amazing! I wish I could see one every day but so far this year I haven’t seen one. I think Tim might be getting fed up of me saying “I hope I see a Newfie today”! Anyway on Sunday I bumped into Geoff the Saint Bernard and his humans and I mentioned that I still hadn’t met a Newfie. That night Geoff’s mum emailed me to say that she’d found me a Newfie; as you can imagine I was very excited! Thanks Michelle, you’re a star! So today I arranged to meet not one but two Newfoundland’s, amazing!
Bobby and Ella are brilliant; they’re both really friendly, I got to give them both lots of strokes and hugs! Ella is the oldest of the two and her human mummy told me that she’s a typical Newfie; she’s very chilled out and she’s a gentle giant! She likes to sit on peoples feet when they stroke her and she even sat on my knee, she thinks she’s smaller than she is! Ella is a lovely girl!
Bobby is 2 years old and although he’s not fully grown yet he’s massive! When he jumps up he’s taller than me! Bobby isn’t a typical Newfie as he’s very boisterous and he can get very excited. He’s so boisterous that his humans can’t walk him and Ella together. Unfortunately Bobby has been attacked by a couple of dogs which has made him a bit nervous but extra training has helped him. Ella and Bobby are both really lovely, I could of fussed them all day!
