Old Salty and Rod express their feelings about Newfoundlanders as a breed of dog and perhaps people.



Old Salty: A Newfoundlander’s a fine kind of dog
And I’ll tell you why she is my kind of dog
She’s big as a bear, but she swims like a fish
A friend to the end who is there when you wish
All you have to do is call…Here girl!
A Newfoundlander’s the greatest of them all!

A Newfoundlander’s a wonderful breed
Always ready to help out when you are in need
She’ll jump in the water if you start to drown,
Hitch up a sled, she can take you to town
She pulls her own weight…Good girl!
That’s why Newfoundlanders are so great!

(Old Salty & Johnny dance off stage during solo. Rod enters.)

Rod: A Newfoundlander’s a favourite of mine.
You can ignore her for days at a time.
She will fetch and carry
Just feed her and pet her
She’ll follow you everywhere, do what you tell her to
Although she may drool…
You’ll never ‘have to pay for her to go to school!

And I got me a pure-bred
Who will follow where she’s led
I got me a pure-bred,
pet Newfoundlander
…and a Labrador on the side! Ha! Ha!
