Arrival Story:
I found Newbie on the side of the road in the pouring rain in Miami, FL. He had a collar and was trailing one of those cable tie-out things which he had obviously snapped. I advertised in the paper for a lost dog and refused to name him as I was absolutely NOT going to keep him (I already had three!). So I called him the "new dog" which eventually became "Newbie dog", then "Newbie". So here it is 7 years and four moves later and he's still with me!

Newbie is a really great dog. He's extremely friendly and easygoing and loves people. He can't get enough attention and I always jokingly say he'd like to crawl up onto you and perch on top of your head. He really can't get close enough. He sometimes leans on you so hard that you feel he could in fact, love you to death by smothering you! Newbie is very delicate. He has a very sensitive tummy and is very submissive. You have to be very careful around him. If you raise your voice he is quick to think he is in trouble. I suspect he was abused before I found him. Thank God for Newbie, he's been so supportive and sweet to me since we lost Player. He's a great dog to cuddle and snuggle with and he never gets tired of it! Without Newbie and Cubby I would never have survived losing Player. They are very special and wonderful companions. Sadly we lost Newbie at the end of June 2008. He was diagnosed with a particularly aggressive prostate tumor. He is greatly missed by his mom and dad, baby Liam and especially his best friend Cubby. We love you Newbie, watch over us!
