Fred came home yesterday.
Fred is ten weeks old today.
Fred is adorable.

Fred is happy.
Fred is exhausting.
(I say that with a smile, but it’s true.)
Fred was very busy learning about his surroundings and getting into everything he can find to get into.
Fred is getting a lot of love and attention.
Fred wants to follow me everywhere I go.
(It’s as if he’s already learned to heel because he walks right with me, off leash, at all times.)
Because Fred arrived a couple days before I thought he would,
I wasn’t 100% ready for him.
Today, some gates arrive.
The gates will help me contain Fred to the areas of my house with brick flooring.
(Life will be much easier once the gates arrive.)
Fred has kept me so busy, I didn’t have time to take many photos of him yesterday.
This isn’t the most flattering photo of Fred, but it does look very bear-like, I think.
Look at the size of Fred’s paws!!
Fred was the biggest pup in his litter … and by the size of his paws, I’d say he’ll probably grow-up to be quite large.
Fred will be a good photo assistant eventually.
I know this because Fred was very interested in
eating my camera.
Today the electrician arrives to give me a super-duper-high-power electrical outlet.
I need it for the cow blow dryer I will be using to dry Fred after he swims/bathes.
Life with a Newfie begins!
A special thank you to CeCe Guyatt of Trinity Cove Newfoundlands for being such an inspiring person and breeder.
