Downtown Newfies

Yesterday morning the four of us went downtown to visit the new pedestrian bridge and the Farmer's Market. We went early before it got too hot, but the heat still chased us away pretty quickly. At least Katie and Louis got a chance to get lots of love from strangers and brighten the lives of everyone they came in contact with. The effect they have on people is amazing. Even though they are big dogs (even baby Louis is 74 pounds already) most people take one look at their faces and just know they are sweet.
Louis made his own little pond to lay in by purposely spilling his water bowl repeatedly.

Katie waiting patiently while her Dad has a long conversation about Newfs with a very inquisitive person.

We can see how you would attract a crowd. We would stop and adore the newfies as well!

Youse guys get hot cuz you don't got half white to go with your black. All black makes you sorb more hot. Max and Shiloh don't like to get hot and they stay under the deck on the patio. The rst of us are redish golden and don't seem too bothered by the hot. We live next to a big puddle and when it gets real hot we get to go swim in it. Our dad sez that you dogs look very well groomed; unlike all of us cepting Abby cuz she doesn't got long hair like evrybody else. - Homer J., Jubal, JEB, Shelby, Jack, Abby, Max, Shiloh, Alex, Boru, Jenny = The Bumpass Hounds.

What fun! We just love farmers markets: friendly people, lots of kids and dogs, and great food, too. I bet these two beautiful dogs make quite a stir when they go walking through the stalls!
