The Irish Spotted Newfoundland Society Welcomes Seadog Boomer


From Capt'n Andy & Seadog Boomer with apologies Hans Zimmer:
To The Irish Newf Society

"Yo, ho, haul together
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, Black and White
never shall we die.

The Giz and his men
stole the bones from the box
and buried them in his bed.
The seas be ours
and by the powers
where we will we'll drool.

Yo, ho, haul together
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, Black and White
never say we die.

Some Newfs have died
and some are alive
and others rescue on the seas
- with rope in mouth - and the Devil to pay
we swim to Dairy Queen.

The stuffy has been raised
from it's slobbery grave...
'Do you hear it's squeeking tone?'
We are call to dinner,
pay head the door
and turn your tail toward home!

Yo, ho, haul together
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, Black and White
never shall we die."


Ay lassie to The Boomer's Mum -- she drank the Screech, that wicked rum, and then fell on her bum.

  2. Thanks so much for the invite! However, I don't think Katie is an Irish Spot. She has one VERY prominent white foot, a little bit of white on her two rear feet and only a few white hairs on her front right foot. She also doesn't have any white on her tail. What do you think? Would that be an Irish spot or just a black Newf with a recessive Landseer gene showing up a bit? Either way, IS Newfs are lovely :)
