 Lacey WA 98503 us

When you own a Newfoundland:

·         the sound of running water makes you jump up and yell, "OUTSIDE!

·         you tell your dog to sit, and he backs up until he finds a chair

·         it takes 3 people to get your dog on the scale at the vets

·         people bring a change of clothing when they come to your house for a visit

·         you walk your dog and everyone knows him by name, but you have no idea who these people are

·         you take your dog with you in the winter instead of a shovel, since your dog is capable of towing a stuck      vehicle out of a snow drift

·         your dog can hide an entire coke can (among other things) fully inside his lips and give you that innocent  look that says, "What? I'm not eating anything!"

·         you carry a tape measure with you when shopping for a new vehicle

·         you purchased a 4-door pickup - sport utility vehicle - or any other large vehicle just to transport your dog

·         you keep a "drool towel" in every room of your house.

·         your purse looks like a diaper bag to hold drool towels and snacks

·         your doggie disposal bag is a 30-gallon trash bag and it's full after one outing –

·         visitors enter your house holding their privates protectively and wearing a rain coat

·         when you take your dog for a ride he rests his head on your arm, causing you to make random right turns.

·         you give up on water dishes and you just use the bathtub

·         you have to move over when brushing your teeth because your dog wants a drink

·         when you stop at a stop light, everyone stares as your car rocks back and forth while the dog moves from  window to window

·         you avoid the dogs on your way out the door, so they won't smear your makeup or slime your outfit

·         you learn to force a smile when asked, "do you have a saddle for that thing?"

·         your monthly dog budget exceeds your home mortgage payment

·         your veterinarian has been able to put in a swimming pool, build a large home, buy jet skis and a personal  plane

·         you have to train your dog not to lick dishes, and the dishes are in the sink . . .

·         the donuts you put on top of the refrigerator are gone when you get home and your dog has powdered sugar  on his nose

·         your dog can see what you're cooking, and he tries to assist you in the preparation by licking the spoon

·         delivery people tell you to meet them at the end of the driveway

·         you purchased a large screen TV and you still can't see the program when he stands in front of the television

·         you resign yourself to living without screen doors

·         something small and dark moves quickly across the floor, but you don’t worry - you know it is a dog-hair  dust bunny and not a mouse

·         you grow to appreciate the look of strands of drool stuck to your ceilings and walls
