This family from the north of England lives with 8 Newfoundlands at home (video)

Emma Bone, 33, lives in rural Northumberland with her husband Mark, 40, and their three children. She is daily committed to her 8 large dogs and prioritizes their well-being. The story of an extraordinary life.

That Newfoundland are large canines that many of us would struggle to manage. But since their first dog dexter arrived in their lives 10 years ago, the family never knew how to do without this breed!

“It’s hard to explain what it is from the outside. It’s so normal to us.”

Emma and her family lead a particularly atypical lifestyle. In addition to looking after her three children, the mother runs a care business, Bellingham Dog Spaa kennel under the name Modern Newfoundlandsand a string Youtube, Living with large dogs (in French: lives with big dogs), where she shares her daily life.

The family is therefore composed of 8 Newfoundland (oldest to youngest): Granny Bay, Moonie, Judgment, Whistle, Roo, Monroe, Tuppence and set. But it’s not finished! They also live together with 2 Chow chow and 2 cats Sphynx. In other words, they really don’t have time to be bored.

Newfoundlands, these “big teddy bears” for their mistress

That’s it Emma saw dogs of this breed for the first time when she was 12 years old, she fell in love with them. She didn’t hesitate for a second to adopt one when she moved into her first home. A perfect companion for his 2-year-old son, a dog known for being “great with kids” she confides to the magazine Mirror.

That Newfoundland have a temper”sweet and wonderful” and suitable for many activities, especially swimming. They live happily in their 2 hectares of land, bathe in the river there, and also live inside the house. Their mistress makes sure that they can move freely, provided that they do not .take the stairs, which are bad for their joints.

“A full-time job”

In addition to moving to a bigger house, the family also had to invest in a dog trailer, which many owners of Newfoundland. The animals all get a daily exercise session adapted to their age and needs. “It is shorter for puppies, they are more lazy” she explains Mirror.

Food expenses for the dogs amount to 600 euros per month and are added to other expenses, especially those related to the maintenance of the house. Dogs are dried after each swimming session, but their thick hair sticks to walls and ceilings, requiring daily cleaning.

Emma know that all of this can be perceived as limiting. “People must think we’re crazy” she says, “but we wouldn’t change our lives for anything in the world“.

As the family has no more space to welcome other dogs, the family will not adopt a new animal at this time. Emma hopes that one day she will be able to pass the torch to her eldest son, especially in the world of breeding and competition, another area close to her heart.
