Default 20 months since we lost Spirit.

It’s been 20 months and not a day goes by that I don’t think of my big guy BUT today I have wonderful news. My Breeder “Watchbear” Newfoundland’s gave me a call to let me know I have the pick of the liter. Introducing Watchbears Spirit & Grace... (Gracie) is ready to come home. 8 weeks old, 18 lb. Landseer. We are driving north to Medina Ohio, picking up our girl and heading back to Florida till May. I miss you all very much and will never forget the help that this site provided (to me and Spirit). We are leaving early Monday morning and will be back by Wednesday evening.

Congratulations!

What a cutie, Jim! No doubt Spirit is quite happy for you and Marijane, and of course for Gracie. She's one lucky pooch to get adopted by you two!

Hoping for a HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR for you and your family.

She's a doll. Love her markings! Looks like she might grow into a big girl. You are lucky.
