Jean,
You are probably the only one on the forum who really understands the problem with a Newfy :sagrin: . I wouldn't trade him for the world but I don't know that I will get another when our aging Dane passes on.

:lol:

Briard slobber is unique too!!! But not as sticky as Newf slobber!

As for not getting another...................we were not getting another dog after our first Cocker passed on, we now have another Cocker and a Miniature Pinscher!

Jean,
There is no way I could ever honestly say I would never have another dog. There is about the same chance that I wouldn't have two. I can't even pretend that I would go to shorter haired dogs but I am getting too old to clean walls and ceilings everyday so we PROBABLY wouldn't get another Newfy UNLESS :roll: someone came up with a "dry mouth" breed like they have for the Saints ...

Yeah, I know what you mean.............although we did decide to get a short haired dog this time, and got Diablo the min pin.

I think slobber is an integral part of Newfs!

Bringing things slightly back on topic (:biggrin2:) Diablo saw his first octopus this week, it was the funniest thing! He stopped in his tracks, sat down and craaaaaned his neck and then went into a frenzy of bouncing and barking..........I wish I'd had the camera with me!
