Awwwww! The Newfoundland

by Brittany Geragotelis

So, at our apartment, Fridays mean Mexican Food and movie night! My BFF, Tammy comes over and we all chow down on nachos and tacos and watch a movie. Then, Matt usually sneaks off to play video games and Tammy and I stay up watching various shows on Netflix.

Last Friday's Netflix option was the comedy, "Samantha Who?" If you didn't see it when it was on, it's a really funny show starring Christina Applegate ("Up All Night") and Melissa McCarthy (from "Gilmore Girls" and "Bridesmaids"), where Christina's character has amnesia after being hit by a car and slowly remembers all the awful things she did in her former life.

Anyways, Melissa's character has these dogs. These incredibly large, ginormous, bear-like dogs. Now, Matt and I have been wanting a dog for a while now and we're always looking at pups on Reddit. So, I decided to look this breed up.

And they're insane! They're called Newfoundland's and they're huge and adorable! I don't know if I could handle a dog this size, but they are so, so cute! So, because it was just too much adorableness for one person, I decided to share some pics with you! Let me know what you think. Would you be willing to take on a dog this size or does size matter?

We had a lab newfy mix that weighed in at 180. Perfect mix of 2 awesome breeds. We found him as a puppy in Georgia when he was 4 weeks old. His favorite place to sleep was in a twin bed next to my grandpa. They would spoon together with Charleys leg over grandpa's body.

We have Danes, and lots of times, these larger breed dogs have a slower metabolism and require less exercise and upkeep than the mid-sized breeds. I love giant dogs, they are easy easy easy going and have such human like personalities. Get one!
