Finnegan

This page is dedicated entirely to Finnegan, because we’re a little obsessed with him.

If you didn’t already know, Finnegan is our 180 lb bundle of love newfoundland. We brought Finn home when he was just 10 weeks old and we’ve been in love ever since. We would have loved to have had Finn in our wedding ceremony, but that amount of slobber is apparently frowned upon within the church. Instead, we decided he can have a shout out here.  In case you’re curious, below is a little fact sheet on Finn and some answers to the most frequently asked questions we receive.

    • Yes! His groomer once told me that she filled 2 full trash bags with his undercoat.
  • Where does he sleep?
    • When his knees were good, he used to sleep with us in our Queen bed. We like to snuggle
  • Aren’t you afraid to have children with him in the home?
    • I’d be more worried about other people around a child than I would Finn.  He loves kids!
