He is a big one!

Side note.. many years ago DH and I were taking a trip up to Whitney Portals and we stopped at the store there. Before we got out of the car we could see something big and black by the door to the store. It really looked like a bear and it was in the mountains so... Turns out it was a Newfoundland like the one in that story. I bet he scared away a few customers!

Wow is right! We had an English Mastiff (Hogan) that was just 32" at the shoulder, and let me just say this: several times he absconded with cooling burritos on the kitchen island! He didn't jump up, he just reached over!

Thanks for the link, Demonica! Cool photo and story!

One of the homes I work in had an all black Newfoundland visit. She stayed outside. People would cross the street when they walked by. She's a real water rescue dog, but her owner added that it helps if you have a hot dog in your pocket. She's very sweet. Thick fur & webbed feet.

This is very interesting, I didn't realize they had web feet or were water loving dogs....
