We so enjoyed Michael Bublitz and his family coming recently all the way from Minnesota to pick up Lucie Doozie's puppy "Dee" (new name Mattie Junior "MJ") AND our special retiree Lottie Dottie. The Bublitz family has "Winnieford the Pooh Bear Dog," daughter of Lottie and Luke, and "Charlie Brown Bear Dog," daughter of Margoree and Luke, and they also had "Matilda the Big Brave Dog," daughter of Bailee and Luke. After Mattie was tragically lost in an accident, this was a silver lining to the cloud. Lottie will spend her retirement in the Bublitz home with her own daughter Winnie and granddaughter MJ. What's more, the Bublitz brought their daughter Hannah and her husband Diego, with Rigel, our sweet Irish Spotted foundation male that retired with Hannah and Diego a couple of years ago. . It was so good to see the Bublitz family and Mr. Rigel again. Rigel is doing great and will be 10 years old in May!
THANK YOU BUBLITZ FAMILY FOR GIVING A GREAT HOME TO EACH OF YOUR MFN NEWFIES!
Michael - "You're our family. We have more MFN than kids." 😊
🏖️🐾 Pool Safety Tips 🏊♂️
Make a splash and stay safe! If you plan on visiting the pool with your dogs this summer follow these tips for a fun and safe pool trip!
🐾 Teach your dog how to enter the pool safely and guide them to locate the stairs for a smooth exit. Make sure they know their way around the pool.
💦 Watch their water intake – drinking excessive chlorinated pool water can upset their stomach. Be sure to offer fresh water nearby.
👀Never leave your dog unsupervised with pool access. Create a secure environment by installing a locked gate that separates your dog from the pool area when you're not actively watching.
💧 Check the water temperature before letting your dog jump in. Note that only a handful of breeds are equipped for extremely chilly water.
Be sure to follow these pool safety tips and make this summer a pool-tastic time! 🌞

Once upon a time, MFN brought best friends and sisters Polly and Margoree home from NY as pups. Polly was placed in a pet home soon afterwards, while Margoree became a star breeder. The very day it was decided that Margoree had reached her retirement, Polly's family "just happened" to contact MFN to request that the long-lost sisters be reunited. Apparently, their children had always imagined "Polly and Margoree" stories. Now, their true life happily ever after begins! What a happy tale!
As a therapy dog that is! First step getting used to wheel chairs. God gives us Newfies for way more than just snuggles on the couch. From pulling in fishing nets on the coast of Newfoundland, to water search and rescue, to bringing smiles to the faces of residents and staff at Sunnybrook Rehab Center in NC, Newfies are just a special breed. Good job Rigley! (2019 Son of Breezie and Tommy, both retired). How is YOUR MFN serving mankind? Feel free to comment below!
We took advantage of a warm day yesterday to do a photoshoot on the porch. Little Sis decided to join us and slept under our photo prop! Check back soon to see individual pictures of Lucie's and Candy's Newfie puppies, which are currently being offered to our waiting list!
Ah, one of the sweetest mama Newfies we've ever had retires and goes to her "furever" home with Stephanie and her family in Ashland, VA. Jersie has given us beautiful Newfies and NewfieDoodles over the years, and we'll always be especially grateful to Jersie for our special NewfieDoodle "Kayak!"
We look forward to hearing great updates about Jersie for years to come! She'll be missed.
If you're visiting Virginia Beach and happen to see a big black bear and a big brown bear walking on leashes, stop and say hello to MFNs Raven and Darla! We love to place our retirees with puppy family. Thank you Caiti and Mark!
Lucy (mom and grandmother of our beautiful "L" line - Lottie, Lonnie, Lucie Doozie, Lukie, etc) celebrated her 10th birthday in May and is doing really well!! 🙂 The vets here in FL have been baffled to see a Newfie her age in such great shape! Other than some mild arthritis, she is healthy, happy, and still gets a little bounce to her step when she's excited to see us!
When Brenda contacted us to tell us how much her vision-impaired daughter loved and connected with our one-eyed Joey, we knew he had found his special retirement home. After years of serving Moore Family Newfoundlands, Joey is now living a life of fun, sunshine, spa treatments, and love with his new family (and our NewfieDoodle puppy Toby) in Florida!
