Newfoundland dog Wellington & pup Henry



At five months old we thought it was time to introduce Henry to the water. July 29 was a warm nor' west Saturday so we packed the Newfoundland boys in the car & drove down the road to the river.

Having Wellington to show Henry what to do certainly helped and Henry took to the water like a Newfoundland dog should.

Henry still considers himself to be a "lap dog"... which can be a tad uncomfortable...

Henry is a breeze to walk...he does it himself.

Our young Newfoundland pup is pictured here on a short walk at eight months of age, carrying his own lead.

At this age, Henry's weight was around 60 kgs.

At ten months old Henry weighed in at 65 kilos and had almost caught up Wellington (right), who at that time weighed 67.5 kilos. Here Wellington is around ten-and-a-half years of age.

Here we are at twelve months with big brother Wellington, who is in his eleventh year. Henry adores Wellington...and just between you and us, we think old Welly doesn't mind Henry being around either...

Time for bed






Both of our Newfoundland dogs love routine and bedtime is very much part of that. If we are just a couple of minutes late Henry gets restless. Here he is on his way...
