Leroy was born on 6/30/08 and his registered name is CH. Bydand’s Badd Badd Leroy Brown. Don’t let his sweet innocent face fool you, he has more mischief inside him than any dog that I have ever had.

He’s my goofy newfy and I wouldn’t want him to be any other way.


I wish I had as much confidence as he has and he brings a smile to my face several times a day with his antics.

He wakes me up in the morning by jumping on the bed and breathing in my face. He lacks coordination and has a very short attention span, much like me.


He’s that once in a lifetime kind of dog and I cherish every moment that we have together.


January 2014 Leroy ate a large quantity of rocks. He had to have over 30 of them removed surgically. He never fully recovered from the surgery and became quite ill. In September of 2014 Leroy almost passed away. Quick medical attention from a group of great veterinarians saved him. He was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Lymphangiectasia. It’s been a slow recovery but as of February 2015 we are happy to say that Leroy is doing well and we keep our fingers crossed that he continues to heal.

  1. Sounds like my newfie. We jokingly call him the add puppy because he can get into mischief or be doing something and have the “it” moment of SQUIRREL! We adore him though. I will be the first to say I have fallen in love. We were worried bringing another dog into our home as our black lab is a working dog and been an only child for quite some time but being the gentle giant he is he was the perfect companion and is more than happy to rough house with him or lay back to back with him on MY bed ! They team up to be the terrible two at home but he is a great stress reliever for the lab who has a stressful job. Amazing dogs.

  2. Thank you for your healthful suggestions regarding stoppage of toenail bleeding on dogs. I have usually cut the nails of all my dogs in the past but as you clearly stated “all dogs and dogs’ toenails are different”. My shepherd pup ( 10 months) needed a manicure, so I preformed the task. The upper nail on front paw started” to bleed, and bleed. I rounded up the septic stick then found your web-sight. She now has a bandage on the foot after putting the powder on again with pressure- hard not to be nervous. Why this always seem to happen on a holiday or week-end. Anyway, she’s alright. Thanks again, Patty and “Elsa”.
