I may be getting a dog! Someone I know has a Landseer that is 14 mos old that she is giving away to a good home. There is no one home to play with the him anymore and they are just too busy. There is usually someone home always at my house, most days. They are an offshoot of the Newfoundlander and have such great temperatments.
I'm getting a kitten too, male and a few months old. Big enough to take some play from the Landseer, which is huge.
