Hello Friends.....been a loooong time! I just thought I would post something so everyone knew I didn't fall off the planet. It was an odd trip to florida this year without spirit. In fact, it was the first time in 13 years I didn't have a newfie with me on vacation. Losing spirit really took a long time to recover from and everyplace I went reminded me of the big guy. Once we hit Florida it all came flooding back again when we walked the beach or strolled downtown without him. Hearts do mend...that's the good news and now I look back with great affection and joy when I remember him. I also went to the North Florida Newfie convention in December and literally sat in the lobby of the hotel and hugged each one as they entered....spent 2 days there, that may have helped too! :)

I have put my name on a waiting list at "Watchbear Newfoundlands" for a Landseer. MJ and I just can't fathom another black newfie so we are patiently waiting for a black and white one (landseer).....if you go to their web page you can see how wonderful her dogs are. It's been since last July that we got on the list so I am learning patience too.....LOL

We are praying that our new addition to the family will arrive this summer so I can begin the training on Lake Huron and the beach here at the house before he/she makes the first trek to the ocean.

I miss you all and think of you often....I do lurk around and add comments when my knowledge is relevant. Love to all our sugar babies.

Jim & MJ

Great to hear from you Jim! I just checked out the Watchbear Newfies on their Facebook page! Oh my goodness they are beautiful dogs and the puppies are adorable. Hope you get your "little" one soon!!

Nice to hear from you, Jim, ... and really great to hear you're "expecting" a new baby! Many of us can testify just how hard the separation from our little guys and gals was. No doubt, the bond which develops by caring for our patients really intensifies the relationship, ... and thus makes the inevitable parting more intense as well.

Will be quite interested in your new add whenever he, or she, arrives! Hope everything else is fine with MJ and yourself. Happy trails to you.

Good to hear from you, Jim. I think.of Spirit every time I see a Newfie.
Criss has been gone for 8 years and I still miss her. They stay in your heart forever.

Although losing our babies is tough and no puppy can ever replace them, the energy of a new life is invigorating. I missed Maggie and was so very lonely even after six months, that I decided to get a puppy. She is not really like Maggie at all but she is still special. There is just something about a silly, cute pup that really helps heal your heart. I remember feeling a little guilty at first to be truly happy again but Maggie always lived life to the fullest so I know she would approve. Spirit will too. Hope you get news soon!

I got all choked up and teary-eyed reading your post. Always good to hear from you.

I, too, lurk, but don't post often.

Forever grateful to our friends here.

Keep us posted on your new edition! Hoping it's this summer!

So glad to see an update on you and MJ. Hope both of you are well.

The new 'pup' will have a wonderful home, and be the lucky one. Hoping the arrival is soon.
