had the pleasure of meeting William Ball of Glengarry,
Ontario (and two of his dogs!). He has writtenn "Life
Among the Giants" a lovely, light-hearted account
of sharing his life with four Newfoundland dogs..
Bill provides information
on the history of the breed, grooming considerations,
temperament, drool(!) and generally what to expect when you
add 600 lbs of dog to your day!!
favorite chapter is on the Therapy work that Bill does with
his dogs. Bill
visits Retirement homes and his Newf, 'Rimshot', was the
founding dog in the "Reading with Rimshot" program
in Cornwall, Ontario, where children with reading
difficulties are encouraged to read to the dogs.
Highly recommended reading
for those considering adding a Newf into their lives.
Those who already have a Newf, will certainly appreciate the
antics of Bill and his crew!!
