    Longshot but I vaguely remember a thread from a few years ago from a member on here who I haven't seen in ages! Not sure of their name, but they had a Newfie, and I remember he had something wrong with him, maybe a hip problem?

    Anyway, I remember always thinking of this dog as I love Newfies and I wondered on the off chance anyone might not what I am talking about (I know it's vague!) and how they are doing?

    I think the member was called Six something, honestly that's the only thing I can remember!

    That rings a bell! Did they have a Newfie who had a.. hip problem maybe? I remember this member had a young Newfie with a severe issue, and I just could never forget it!

    YES. It was Lumpkin, I remember the name clearly. You don't happen to know what happened to him do you :(

    Ah, I wonder if someone on here does. Something about him really got under my skin and he's often crossed my mind. Although I don't post much in dog chat I read all your threads and end up really caring for all the dogs on here!!

    You could try starting a conversation with her on pm and she may get an email.

    I haven't heard anything re Lumpkin for ages, I think there were a couple of people on here who were in touch with cats eyes off forum, but can't remember who they were.

    I often think about him given my affinity for newfies. Last I heard was he was doing well a few months after choosing not to go down the surgical route, but that was when he was still quite young, and I think forelimb anomaly would be worse as he grew. I'd love to hear how he is now.

    Ah fingers crossed he is okay and thriving. I will send her a pm on the off chance she sees it!
