Listen, who hasn’t been tackled by an ecstatic four-legged goofball with zero coordination who slips on a banana peel, skids down a Slip and Slide, and regains instant composure?

Perhaps some grips on his paws would do the trick, Emilia von H.

    Thank goodness the hairbag deployed in that crash.


  3. Birdcage says:

    I LOVE IT! That is hysterical!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. marthava says:

    LOL Knocked down and licked to oblivion and beyond!

  5. Yay for newfies, especially ones that knock over the camera person and then act casual!

    We had a newfie when I was growing up. He was the runt of the litter, and he got to be almost 140 lbs full grown. I always wondered how big his non-runt siblings became…

  6. I like the way the camera person thanks the doggie for the kisses. That dog has a regal profile.

  7. I love the owner’s “Thank you” at the end. That’s what I say to my dog when he crashes in to me. He’s not doing it to be mean. He’s just happy!

  8. May I have another?

  9. Paunchie says:

    Oh I love you too, ya big slobber face!

  10. 😀

  11. love the newfs. Ours is more of a giant rug than anything else, but in the end, she loves her family.

  12. tracylee says:

    can’t watch the video at work (boo) but I can only imagine how wonderful a floofy newfie attack would be!

  13. Oh, yes. We have a Newfie. *They* say that sweetness of temperament is the hallmark of the breed. *I* say it’s the way they don’t even brace for impact.

  14. yes!! It is greetings like this that make coming home just that much better

  15. Sweet thing.

  16. I grew up with a Newf. She also liked to run full speed into things, like the time she ran through the screen door and sent it tumbling 20 feet into the yard. Or the time she knocked the side mirror off the car without slowing down. Or into a person anytime they were standing in the snow…

    I need another Newf in my life.

  17. MamaDawn in Tulsa says:

    There’s a reason newfie rhymes with goofy.

  18. LizzyCat says:

    I’ve been lovingly tackled by my friend’s black Newf, Oliver. He likes violent hugs 🙂

  19. I like the way he nonchalantly sits down afterward. “Well. My work is done here.”

  20. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:


  21. is it possible that my 7 lb blond shih tzu has some newfie in her? Lulu rams into me all the time, but lacks the mass to do anything besides get tangled in my feet.

    So cute! I’ve only known a few newfie’s in my life but the ones I have known are big lovable goofballs that don’t like to get out of the water.

  22. Resriechan says:

    I vote for LizzyCat & Juno for the (goofiness Newfiness) WIN tuh-day!!!!

    (Crowd wildly roars its approval)


    And a nearby Newfie crashes up through the bleachers, joyfully knocking everybody down in his/ her path……

  23. Resriechan says:

    oops a third WINNAH: MamaDawn!!!

    (crowd roar)


  24. One Eyed Daruma says:

    So cute how he sits there and awaits the rescue team…

  25. What a nerdus! I love him!!

  26. I’ve never seen a Newfie in person, but add that to the list of dogs I want now. It is too hot down here for one, but they sure are beautiful…and loveable, like a giant teddy bear!!!

  27. Dog Vs Camera

    …. and Dog wins! Total Cuteness!

  28. I love the “thanks” at the end!! LOL!!!

  29. Their uncontrollable slobbering and four-foot-long ropes of slimy drool make them disgusting to have around. Oh, and they stink, too.

  31. JohnnyJohnny says:

    This happened to me last weekend with my buddy Hank, the Bull Mastiff. Except I went flying over him like a person hit by a car. These guys just don’t have any breaks.

  32. OMG!!1! We saw Newfie on the way home this evening… the fluffulence, the amble, the sheer, gargantuan size!!!!! Almost ran off the road… had an almost unconquerable need to screech to a halt and dash over and bury my enire face on the (single point of the) axis of snorgling….

  33. I love the “thank you” at the end.

  34. Eeeeeee! Heheheh! I love it! It’s also great how he sit down afterwards, ^.^!!

  35. LOL. Oh gosh is that funny. I love how he just sits down and looks completely calm.

  36. Beautiful Newfie! It’s a good thing they are sweet dogs, for the sheer size of them. Friends had one called Little Bear, and he sure was! I loved his furry sweetness.

  37. wednesday night wasslin’!

  38. That’s hilarious and soo precious, especially when you glimpse you him licking the little kid 🙂

  39. So this is the Cloverfield 2 trailer. Huh.

  40. ivorybill says:

    I love how you can see the guy’s foot fly up in the air as he’s airborne from impact. 😀

  41. Martha in Washington says:

    Newfies are my dream dog! In a perfect world, we would all be owned by one.

  42. That is a WHOLE lot of love. At top speed!

    I’m a cat person and an apartment dweller, but I do long for a big ol’ Newf. 😀

  43. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    WOW I’ve always Lurrrrrrrrrrrrrved doin’ me some in-depth researchifyin’ ….

    BUT MAN OH MAN this here is the plumpest group o’ fackshual knowledge about LedZepp’s cover version of the song Whole Lotta Love …….
    “I do believe I dun’ evah located. ”

    That having been mangled, CLICK ON THIS if you even want a millimeter of interesting facts (meanings, dates, other reference) or if you’re considering AirBand/Karaok’ing the night away: Here goes


  45. Rachael says:

    The calmness at the end but most of all… the tongue!! I luffs heem. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  46. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    This is just another example of how rushing a new model to production in order to take advantage of the improving consumer market leads to shoddy research, development, and manufacturing. This dog clearly was outfitted with substandard braking mechanisms and had to rely on a bystander to enable him to stop. It’s not just our lives that are at stake here, people, it’s our cameras!

    The leaky valve coming from the front end is a whole ‘nother issue.

  47. “thank you sir. May I have another?”

    AWESOME! When I get it a dog it will be a newfie!

  48. Hon Glad says:

    Love attack.

  49. Where oh where has the video gone?

    [Still there… – Ed.]

  50. Pure happiness from me does this video bring! I have two Newfies, love and drool doth they swing!

  51. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    YAY Argyle Donkeypants IN THA HOUSE (woot, woot??)

    However I wonder, wedder AD will be able to “recognize” ….”qui je suis”….

    Moving right along hey AD: Are all the parts manufactured by Acme (remember the mfg co. in the coyote/ Road runner cartoons? I saw a pheNOMenal essay once in a book….where Coyote sues Acme for loss of life’s work due to the shoddy, substandard products so freely sold without any guarantees…If I can relocate a link for the essay, I could make the link avail….if ennyone’s innerested??)

    (see?) Libraries *CAN* be fun, after all 🙂

  52. I wanna newfie!

  53. Catsquatch says:

    Ok, the initial charge made me grin.
    But what made me laugh so hard that tears sprang from my eyes was the “Thank You.” at the end.


  54. The camera guy made an elementary mistake. He is obviously a newfie newbie.

    [Ergo, OOFie! 😉 – Ed.]
