November Round-Up

Greetings Fergals!

I know it has been a while since my last post but I'm back with some photos of my adventures over the last month.

A harsh frost, I'm doing my best Frosty impression! 
Blowing Raspberries at Muma Bear! 

Muma Bear was very excited about my Be Safe Be Seen bandana, me, not so much! 
On the plus side I made Newfie of the Day on Facebook.

A trip to the vets, nothing to worry about. 
Christmas sign bought for me by Nannie and Grandi.
Visit to the Bury St Edmunds Christmas fayre wearing my Christmas bandana.  I had lots of photos and fuss from peoples, it must be my celebrity status! 
Trip to Diss.
Lots of trips in the car, I love riding in the car.
And finally chilling out. 
As you can see it's been a busy month.  Woof!

The Many Poses of Dog

Greetings Fergals! 

Today I wanted to share with you my various Cooling Paws mat poses.   The Bear Parents bought me this awesome cooling mat for the awfully hot weather we have had here in the UK.  It's been way too hot for bears!

Pose 1. Sitting.
Pose 2. What was that noise?

Pose 3. What at you doing?

Pose 4. What was that?

Pose 5. I'm sure I heard something.

Pose 6. Down pose

Pose 7. Chilled.
Pose 8. Very chilled.

Pose 9. Relaxed.

Pose 10. Almost done. 

Pose 11. Snore. 
I hope you have enjoying browsing my poses and perhaps your canine would like a Cooling Paws mat.  I'm sure they will pick up the poses quickly, as you can see they are not difficult.

Playdate Pals

Greetings Fergals!

A couple of weeks ago my best canine pal Buddy came to play for the day whilst his parents went on a short trip.  We had so much fun, Muma Bear made cheesy biscuits and I gave Buddy his treat I bought him with my vouchers.

Unfortunately we couldn't go for a run over the reserve as it was raining but we did have a quick run in the garden and played fetch in the lounge with Muma Bear.

Muma Bear took a few videos, here is a little montage of our day.

It really was a wooftastic day!

A Newf World, Part 1 - Written by Muma Bear

Greetings Fergals!  

As you will see I have decided to restart my blog, I will now link the posts to my Facebook page, so if you want to keep up with my adventures it's best to keep an eye on here and my Facebook, oh and don't forget the Youtube channel too. 

Now, possibly against my better judgement, I have decided to periodically hand over my blog to Muma Bear to write her own posts, she is going to let you know how great it is to live with me and what to expect from sharing your world with a Newf. 

Written by Muma Bear...(All opinions are those of Muma Bear and no responsibility is taken by myself, Fergus or any other Newfoundlands out there.)

Newf pups appear to grow at a similar speed to a cake in the oven or dough being left to prove i.e. approximately 3-5 inches every hour, and I sometimes wondered at what point we would become dwarfed by our Newf! 
Coming Home - March 2013

Newf's are so sweet you just want to sit and hold them forever but they soon grow to the size where they just won't fit in your arms anymore.  Sure, they will fit on your lap but more about that in another post.  

For the first year whenever we had visitors they all become "that relative" that tells you how much you've grown even though she only saw you last week!  In a Newf's case it's true, some days Mr W (otherwise known as Papa Bear) would return home from work and say to Fergus "You look bigger than when I left this morning!"

First Walk April 2013
Everyone you meet on your walk is surprised to find out that your dog is only a few months old, "...but he's huge." they reply.  There isn't much you can say to that, after all it's true.  I did wonder whether Fergus would start to get a complex about being called huge, this is the sort of comment that would send a human spiraling into crash dieting.  

He was of course the biggest puppy at puppy classes and it took a bit of convincing with some people that he wasn't already fully grown.  He had his first set of classes in July 2013 and when we returned for an advanced classes we were met with comments of "Will he grow any bigger?"  "How much does he weigh?"  and "I bet he costs a lot to feed."  These comments still continue when we are out on walks along with lots of others that I will save for another day. 

Eventually your puppy does stop growing but by this time they are able to reach anything and everything, take at least half the sofa and become an excellent trip hazard!  They take up so much space that's like have a small child, only hairy and quieter. May be size is one of the reasons why Newfs become so much a part of the family, along with their lovable nature of course.

A time to rest...

I'm sure many Fergals will agree sometimes you just need to chill out, it's certainly one of my favourite past times, so sit back, relax and enjoy my photos of me not doing very much at all!
 There's always time for a little 'down time' even on a walk!
 Sometimes you just have to kick back your heels.
Resting at my pal's house.
No wonder the humans sleep in here!
Yes, it is comfortable actually!
Even my mistress sits still...sometimes!


Greetings Fergals

This is me looking a little windswept on my new outdoor lead!  This photo was taken in the garden but the lead is mainly for when we go out and about on something called 'picnics'.  These apparently happen when the sun shines (approximately twice a year), and I believe it entails a mad 'hunter gather' dash for cold foods, the grabbing of a blanket and piling into the car to drive to a nice outdoor spot to eat.  Come on sunshine we're waiting!

Finally I was able to go for my first walk outside of the garden, wow!  There were so many new sights and sounds and lots of sniffing to be done.

I'm only allowed short walks as I'm still growing, albeit quickly, but I've been to lots of different places and met lots of different people and canines. 
I've had Buddy walks, ...
  rainy walks, ...
 sunny walks, ...
countryside walks,...
town walks, ...
but my favourite walk...
is around the best pet shop in the UK!  Woof!

Fun and Games

Apologies for not having posted for a while but on the plus side I have lots to share my fabulous Fergals!

One of my favourite toys is my tug-o-jug, it's filled with my lunch or dinner, or sometimes with my favourite treats and makes mealtimes more interesting, and apparently slows me down as sometimes I eat a bit too fast, I can't help it mealtimes our one of my favourite times of day!  It took me a while to work it out but with practice I've become quite clever at it.

I can see the food, hear the food and smell the food now I just need to work out how to get at the food!

This is another one of my new toys (bought for me by a new human pal), here I am sharing it with my best canine pal Buddy.

Here is one of my new human friends with my mistress, spooky how similar they look don't you think?
A Kong filled with puppy meat - nothing can distract me from this!

My big blue ball, although it's not quite so big anymore in fact it's a little flat.  I'm not sure how that happened!

OK so this is not my toy, but my master seems to enjoy playing with it and I didn't see why I shouldn't join in!
