Newfie Saturday

I spent most of the day with the dogs. I took them to the vet to get weighed (they actually love going there), gave Louis a bath, groomed Katie, took Katie for a walk and even took the dogs with me to get the oil in my car changed. They are always such a hit when I take them out in public... people flock around them. The pups get lots of love and I get lots of questions. There were several children there, so Katie got to practice her kid skills. She is doing so much better. She was 100% calm and Newf-like yesterday. I think my little girl is growing up and getting over some of her kid fears. Louis is getting much better about riding in the car and no longer minds wearing his doggie seatbelt. So, we made progress with both Newfs yesterday.

My Newfie kids crack me up. When I am trying to take a picture of just one of them the other usually manages to get at least some body part in the picture. There are 2 Newfs in every one of these pictures... some more obvious than others.

Louis' First Bath at Home (He won't fit in the bathtub much longer.)

P.S. Katie is holding steady at 110 pounds, Louis weighs 33 1/2 pounds (5 pounds more than Katie weighed at the same age of 12 weeks old)

I LOVE the sitting pretty picture! They look just too cute! Newfs do attract a lot of attention don't they. The people at our local Starbucks go bananas when we bring Gabe up for a weekend morning coffee! I imagine that "little" Newf furball Louis is quite the chick magnet as well! How could one resist? Katie looks beautiful! Great job with the grooming!

What fun pictures! Glad to hear Katie and Louis are overoming their fears and dislikes.

Looks like Katie and Louis are 2 peas in a pod. He's exactly the same weight as Chums at 12 weeks! The last photo, Louis curled up in Katie after his bath is precious.
