So the other day ... a friend of mine asks if there where any new photos of you and the puppies.... so they could see how much they grew.

I gave the super duper camera to my wife and said ..."take some photos of the dogs and I" ........OK... here we go!!!



PROFESSIONAL EFFECTS>>> (push enough buttons, twist the lens, change the aperture, increase the focal setting ... all at once and TAA DAA)


Ok .. jokes aside I will post a few decent shots for your enjoyment.

3 NEW POSTS IN ONE DAY.... Its a miracle !!!!

Yes folks... its true ..... this post and 2 below are new !!!!!

And for those that don't enjoy my stories and only want to see photos.... here they are.... many and many and many!!!!!

Ok.. I just set it up and there are only 181 in one album, but it is a start and more will come!!!

Does anyone remember the 60's & 70's???

Well... you needed 3 things:

  1. A hat to pass them around...
  2. A supply of sugar cubes...
  3. An eye dropper...

Upon ingesting the sugar cube one would find a subject to look at and then after awhile your imagination would take over... and the subject would melt and deform right before your eyes..... observe:-



After a long hiatus ……. WE’RE BACK !!!!

OK... so first things first.....

The reason for hiatus is basically a simple one..."TIME"

Allow me to expand on this... everyone has been super busy...
  1. Master Jenn and Master James have been working at their REAL jobs
  2. Master James has been using the camera for other "very serious pursuits" more on that later !!!
  3. We have been growing and growing and growing (ad infinitum)
  4. It takes hours to load photos on this stupid blog site
  5. Master Jenn and Master James have been working at their SECOND jobs - puppy proofing the house !!
  6. Last but not least ... Master James has been spending all his time answering and dealing with peoples complaints about not seeing more posting.
So .. lets talk about point 5 !!!

If anyone out there is thinking of getting a Newfie, please take this into consideration.

The seven foot rule ... anything and I mean anything that is below seven feet gets eaten, licked or drooled on.
Dear reader... lets stop a moment in time and lets ponder on this one !!! Hmmmmmmm, stop reading and look away from your computer and look around your own house/room and lets find things that need to be moved to be in line with this new 7 ft rule:
  1. Flowers and their vases
  2. Electrical cables and wiring
  3. Ornate Bowls
  4. All paper products
  5. Lounges and cushions
  6. Packets of cigarettes
  7. Hard things, soft things, furry things, spiky things, light things, heavy things.... basically any things!!!
In essence it is the same rule all convertible car owners deal with.... if you leave it there... be prepared to lose it !!!!

But there is good news.... the puppies have not learned to piggy back each other otherwise it would be the 10 ft rule!!

Now I can hear you thinking... hmmmm it does not seem like such a big deal !!!
Well let now take this rule outside:
  1. All plants are eaten
  2. All bits of wood, bark, tree limbs, rocks, stones are all removed and repositioned were you don't want them to be.. usually in the door way
  3. The Pool... arrggg The Bloody Pool... well there is a disaster every time they go outside(ohh and did I mention that it takes a minimum of 2 large beach towels to dry off one puppy and wait... did I also mention the amount of loads that go into the washing machine)
  4. Not to mention more dog hair in the skimmer basket than leaf matter.
By now you get the picture, but wait theres more !!! Now times what you have understood by the factor of 2, because its not one puppy that causes grief but both of them, simultaneously.

So in closing, its not that the puppies are bad, its TIME that is bad.
Time does not come back, Time does not stop, nor does it pause and unfortunately it does not speed up either... we have 2 puppies for the next two years!

YI HAA !!!

Both pronounced the same ... in either case all of you have had to "weight" for the latest puppy update on their "wait" ... or is that vise versa?

Introduction to WATER !!! Part 3 of 3

Hi All,

Masters' James & Jenn have been very busy the last few weeks. Of course we are still adorable as ever.

In fact our Masters' love us soooo much, they decided to join the Texas State Park, so that we could experience new and wonderful things.... such as the Guadalupe River.

I know it is hard to believe, but they get up very early on Saturday morning (a day renowned for sleeping in till 1pm and then searching for a place that would offer breakfast at 3pm), pack the Outback with 20 or so towels, water , camera's, leashes, treats, spare cloths etc etc (you would think we are going away on a weeks vacation) and drive up the road to the park.

Well, it was absolutely beautiful and not many humans to distract us from our primary objective.... The River !!!

Here we learned that we can slowly go deeper and deeper into the water and swim, also how to do a U-Turn and swim back to our masters when called.

All in all we had a perfect morning and slept throughout the whole day.

What is a River ??

It's Wet, Gooey and Fun

This is how one paddles and floats...

What to do when Called...

Some positive reenforcement...

Released out again...

Mastering the "swim to me when called"

Sent out Deeper and Deeper

OK.... even you the reader are understanding the repetitiveness of this training technique...

Now... its just goof off time... yeah !!!

No guesses where we are going tomorrow morning !!!!!..... I guess there will be a part 4 after all.

Introduction to WATER !!! Part 2 of 3

After several hours of playing with our new toy...... and being completely wet... I asked master James if we could play with his similar toy... excepts its much bigger and better.....

He said maybe later on... its now time to rest and dry off a little ...

Of course this means "Photo Op", the cuter I look, the more photos get snapped!!!

Introduction to WATER !!! Part 1 of 3

Masters James & Jenn went and bought for us our very own pool (ok... it aboveground, plastic and probably the best $12 dollar investment from Walmart)

Regardless, it is the best toy they have bought for us yet!!!!!

Of course my brother, who personality leads him to be the leader and the most fearless amongst us, was the indeed the first to jump in.....

Once I noticed how much fun he was having by himself........

I too decided to follow his lead....

In fact... our new toy is so much fun.... everybody wants to play with us in the pool.......

So.... what happens next ?????

His gentle soul remains amongst us...

Bailey 1995 - 2008

It is with great regret and with the deepest condolences in which I announce Bailey's passing, due to medical reasons.

He has been with my masters for over 13 years, and every day was a moment of joy and some kind of adventure... but always the same enthusiastic greeting every single evening!!!
