Hee hee hee. Did I get your attention? all the christmas toys are really discounted now and I bought a kid's santa and a dog's santa (with squeaky) for Maverick. Both dead within an hour. There are Santa pieces all over the yard. So, I tricked him and bought him an oversize ball that he can't get his mouth around. Hee hee hee. He paws it an, pounces on it and tries to gnaw on it. What a goof. We weighed him the other day and he only was 105 lbs. Not much for a Newfie. I think it's cuz he gets so much exercise. I saw him jump a (waist-high) fence the other day.
