Newfoundland Dog Books

The Newfoundland Dog is a hero in many books and stories. His endearing qualities and love for his master has spurred him to great courage and heroism. There have been many stories about how the Newfoundland was involved in many historic and heroic events. The books featured below are from tidespoint.com, a trusted supplier of Newfoundland products since 1995.

Sailor
Catherine Simpson
Illustrated by Joanne Snook-Hann


Sailor is a very unusual Newfoundland dog -- he's afraid of the water! This brings a lot of scorn for Sailor, which also rubs off on his owner, six-year-old Ike, who tries a variety of methods to entice Sailor into the water. Everything fails until one Spring day Ike follows a group of other boys onto the ice. When Ike falls in, Sailor overcomes his fear and saves him. After this Sailor is no longer called a hangashore, but is the town hero.

"This simple, loving tale of a boy and his dog will charm small children everywhere with its lovely illustrations and authentic Newfoundland flavour."
--The Evening Telegram
