"BJ the Best" Remembered







Ok so he's not all newf, but believe it or not his dad was Beau. He was very important to my mom and dad. BJ left them suddenly, Jan 1, 2004 and I thought it would be a good idea to feature BJ on my blog. As you can see he was one happy puppy, mom taught him how to play soccer just like she has tried to teach me, but I tend to loose interest quickly. Dad says BJ was very special because he was allowed to go into the hospitals and put smiles on alot of peoples faces. He was also allowed to go to work with dad everyday....I got to go once...
Thats dad and BJ on the suspension bridge, I've been on it before, mom doesn't like it much cause she says I make it sway, I would much rather be in the water below it though.
Join me in giving a wag of the tail to "BJ the Best."
Gizmo the Great....well trying hard

Its the Best time of Year!!!




This is the best time of year. Its nice and cool outside, the snow is falling and I love it! I have so many things to be thankful for. I am thankful for the belly rubs I get every morning when I wake up. I am thankful for my nice comfortable cushions that mom has all over for me to lay on. I'm thankful for my stuffies. I guess I am thankful for the dinner I get everynight, even though I don't always eat it, which upsets dad. I am thankful for the wonderful walks that take me to the beach everyday. But most of all I am thankful for all my newf found friends.
Wishing everybody health and happiness for the Newf Year!
All the best.

Hey Drew "Wanna know a Secret?"

Hey you guys, I heard mom and dad talking last night, and they mentioned that maybe....just maybe your dad might bring you up to Canada for a visit at Christmas! I can't wait to meet you! My mom is busy making all these good smells coming from her kitchen. Yup christmas baking, and she makes special stuff for us newfs....I'm not one to usually share, but she bakes so much that I know there will be extra for you two too!!! Hopefully you will be able to meet with Rebus, his mom says he is full of beans! There are so many things I want to show you guys, we will have lotsa fun! Just a couple things to warn you about. Mom has a cat...I know I don't get it either, but she's been here alot longer than me, she's 19 (the cat not mom), and deaf, she wants nothing to do with me so we get along just great! She is black with white paws just like us tho. And the other is Farmer Joe's Chickens! We have to stay away from them, I try to sneak over casually but get caught every time....might be the noise the chickens make when they see me.
Anyway keep me posted.
Hope to see you soon

Happy Holidays "Let it Snow"



















video





This is my most favortie time of year!...Its snowing and I love it!! Dad and I built this cool snowbuddy...ok so he's cool until it warms up and he becomes a puddle. But for now at least I have someone to hang out with. Hey Satch & Drew, we can build snow caves when you guys come visit. Mom doesn't like all the snowballs that get attached to my fur. It takes her forever to get them off so I can come in the house, now it will be awhile before she lets me back out again....but I can't wait!!! I'll try and keep some snow for you Satch...hurry up!

My Buddy "Jake"

This is my buddy Jake, he is my mom's nephew, so I guess that makes him my cousin (sort of) Jake came over the other day and we had a great time! He really is alot of fun to play with. Now his sister, Nevada she cries every time she looks at me. I can't come near her without her screaming. I'm not sure what she thinks is going to happen. We all went for a walk and I had to walk ahead with Jake so little Miss "N" wouldn't freak out! But we had a great time, Jake and I looked at all kinds of cool things at the beach, I wanted to go swimming but mom wouldn't let me. We came home and dad lit a big fire and we did one of my most favorite things....a weinnie roast!!! Satch and Andrew are coming here soon and we will be able to have a weinnie roast with them. What a great day!!

Trouble


Hey Satch,
Help! Your dad sent these pictures to my mom and she won't stop looking at them! I'm pretty sure my days are numbered. This is "Roxy" she is a Karazan Newf. She just had 9 puppies, 4 girls and 5 boys. Mom and dad think a little brother for me would be perfect. I'm not so sure. I'll have to share everything. Any advice you have Satch would be greatly appreciated.

I Love my Stuffy!!!

Ok so that doesn't sound very Newficious, but I keep hearing mom and dad talking about getting a brother for me, so everytime they go out I'm afraid of what they might bring home. Well today I thought that was it, here comes mom with this big fluffy white thing in her arms, I'm doomed, now I will have to share everything, and we all know that newfies have a hard time sharing. So she blows past me at the door and I tried so hard to get a whiff, but I wasn't quick enough to check it out. Then I hear dad say to let me check it out. The next thing I know I have this big white fluffy thing in my mouth. Its a new stuffy!!... (I don't have to share) Now you know why "I Love my Stuffy."

Fun at the Park!







I had a great day today, I got to do my most favorite thing...A TRUCK RIDE!!!..not in my new truck mind you, but it was lotsa fun! We went and walked through trails and then to the dog park. Everything smells so good at the dog park, I just don't know where to begin. There was one of those little yappy dogs there, you know the kind that come running up to you yapping the whole time, thinking they are the biggest on the block, well one little swipe of my foot and poof to the sky (did I say that?) ooopss sorry. Anyway who gets hauled off to the truck but me...why me, I didn't do anything. Well maybe a little growl, but I was just trying to tell the little guy to shut up! But mom's a little softy sometimes and we got to drive through and get an icecream on the way home. She said it was to celebrate Satch and Andrew doing so well this weekend...atta boys!! Thanks

Yipee their home!!!




Here are my buddies Satch and Drew, mom and dad just got back from a visit with them. Mom says that their dad Steve is the greatest....well next to my dad of course. Mom says that Satch looks just like me, infact I'm having a hard time telling if that is me or Satch in that picture. What do you think?
One day Satch and Andrew are going to come and visit me. I have so much to show them. We can go up the mountain to the snow, we can go to the beach every day, we can run anywhere we want and no one will chase us down, it will be so much fun!!!
I'm glad things are back to normal around here, its time for a nap.

Mom and Dad are leaving me......


Satchie help!!

My mom and dad are leaving and I'm going to be home all alone...well sort of, mom has a friend looking after me, I really like her, her hair smells good, but its just not going to be the same.

Mom has been really spoiling me lately tho, I think she is feeling a little guilty. What can I do Satch.... I don't want them to leave me. Dad says its only for a few days, but it will fell like years!! Dad also said he's bringing a new truck home for me, and I'm really looking forward to that. Any advice you have Satch, let me know.
Your lonely pal... Giz

Happy Thanksgiving....only in Canada, eh!

Its Thanksgiving weekend and mom says its only in Canada, and that Satch and Andrew don't celebrate it yet. But I wanted to wish you Happy Thanksgiving anyway. Boy does it smell good in the kitchen today. Mom is cooking all this stuff and then I hope I get to taste it. We raked leaves up yesterday then I sat in mom's pile and messed them all up again.
Welcome home Satch, glad you were able to bust out of jail!! I don't think I would cope very well wearing a muzzle all day. But I'm glad your back! Andrew did a good job keeping us up to date tho. Well I just came back from my walk at the beach now its time for a nap.

There once was a Newf named "Beau"




Well another Sunday has past and I have to say that last Sunday was way more fun then today. It was a typical west coast day with lotsa rain and wind. I did manage to get 2 walks in but no truck rides and no swimming. Here are a couple pictures of one of my siblings ( well sort of, I never did get a chance to meet him) a Landseer, his name was Beau and he lived to be 13, mom & dad talk of him often. They say that he was a big handsome boy like someone else they know (wink wink) and he was so gentle, he came to them when he was 8 months old after the couple that adopted him first were unable to look after him, go figure as if newfs don't grow...HELLO...anyway there loss was mom & dad's gain. He had one of his eyes damaged when he was a small pup and after years of care, the Dr. finally had to remove it. But Beau didn't mind, he rarely looked at himself in the mirror. I'll show you BJ next...get it Beau Jr....oh brother....

I love Sundays!!







Well Sunday was a great day, we did all the things I love to do. Started the day off with a walk to the beach, then mom & dad had this big discussion as to weather I could go swimming or not. Dad said he didn't have time, and Mom saying "oh come on he hasn't been swimming for over a week." Well mom won, I mean I won!!! But the deal was mom had to bath me when it was over. So the swimming was great, Dad threw the stick oh so far out, I had a great time ( Andrew where are you? I need your help.) Sorry Satch just to let you know its NORMAL for newfs to like the water. Then it was back home, I carried my stick all the way home and then buried it in mom's garden, I don't know why she was so upset, I bury my cookies there all the time. So out came the bucket, hose and that smelly stuff she puts in the water, and after standing for the longest time I was finally allowed to run away, thats the best part of a bath is when its all over and I get a rub down with the big fluffy towels. Next up was a truck ride, I love truck rides. Dad lets me stick my head out the window sometimes and lotsa people talk to me. We went for another walk, this one was longer then the first one! By this time I was so pooped, we finally got home and I was able to stretch out and have a rip snoring good nap.
Oh did I mention that I love Sundays!!!

My Bud Satch "Karazan Satchel"

This is my buddy Satchel, he lives down in California, he has a younger brother named Andrew, as soon as his dad sends a picture of him I will post it. Satch is the same age as me, and as you can see looks alot like me. We seem to have something in common with our tails! Satch's dad is fighting a big battle with the people that look after the beaches and parks in San Francisco, seems they don't want any of us or our 4 legged friends playing or swimming on "their" beaches. One day Satch and I are going to get together, I can't wait!!

Here's Rebus


This is Rebus, he is my 1/2 brother. Rebus is just 10 months old and already weighs 120lbs. His real name is "Pipeline's Beyond the Sea". He is a gorgeous newfie with the sweetest of temperament. He hangs out in Nanaimo B.C, with his mom Val and dad Glyn.
