    Just like kids, every furbaby has a place in your heart that belongs to her/him alone... Last year we made the right, but difficult, decision for my Newfoundland, Samantha. It is so sad that we don't get as much time with the giant breeds as our little guys.

    I love the colors in this small wall hanging. The camera does not do them justice.

    Its beautiful. Is the picture of the pup a copy on material or is that sewn? Very nice idea. I lost my Jedd last year after 17 years, I still miss him..

    I got the Newfie fabric from www.hotdiggitydog.com
    They have a lot of breed specific fabric.

    It's a lovely wall hanging.

    It is so hard to see our fur-babies ailing and to let them go.

    Hugs.

    I know she's still in your heart. And your quilt is beautiful and reflects the love you shared.

    Lief and Cabot the last two Newfs my hubby's family owned were very young dogs when they were put down. How long did you get with Samantha?

    5 Newfs -- what a dream come true. I do love this breed; however -- I should have had her 20 years ago. I'm really too old now for the giant dogs. Guess for now, I'll stick to the little guys. But, boy oh boy, for just a moment, I sure gave thought to looking them up. :lol:

    That is a beautiful wall hanging. I am so sorry Samantha had to leave you. All of us pet owners know how hard it is to lose our sweeties. I don't think you ever get over missing them.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my sweet baby last November and I miss him dearly. You never have enough time with your pets. That is a beautiful quilt. I am going to check out the site and see what they have for labs. Thank you for sharing the name of the site where you got the fabric. Time will heal your loss but we never forget. Love is eternal for our sweet babies. God bless you.

    You did really good to get 8 years. Can't think of one that I know that was/is older than that!

    I come from their land! And breeders are very rare here now. Most Newfs are bred in the U.S. and Germany now.
