The water heroics of Newfoundlands have earned the dogs the reputation of being lifesavers. With muscular legs, webbed paws, and strong bodies, they are built to be lifeguards. In this book, young readers will dive into learning all about the Newfoundland breed.
This is a wonderful look at the history of this popular and well-recognized dog. Hynes begins his book with a history of the breed and moves on to stories about Newfoundland dogs past and present. These tales make up the bulk of the book, and are generally short, illustrating the traits we associate with the breed: Loyalty, bravery, intelligence and gentleness. The stories are grouped by type - rescues, proof of intelligence, acts of kindness, and so on. There are tales of dogs performing heroic sea rescues, catching fish with remarkable skill, acting as dependable hunting partners, and caring for children. One hilarious chapter is devoted to the Newfoundland's subtle sense of humour. Hynes recounts anecdotes himself, but he also quotes historical text extensively, letting past Newfoundland owners talk about their dogs in their own words.
The last section of the book deals with the care and training of Newfoundland dogs. Hynes is thorough and honest in his advice - caring for a 150 pound dog requires diligence and devotion. This book is devoted to Newfoundland dogs: heroes, artful dodgers, escape artists, and best friends.
