This document is meant as a starting point on your quest for Newfoundland knowledge. It is in no way to be used in place of a vets advice, or a breeders recommendation. These people are professionals, and this document will defer to them whenever possible. If you think your dog is sick or in need of veterinary care, stop reading this and call your vet now. The best thing you can do for a sick or injured Newf is to get in contact with a vet as soon as possible.

Please note, "postponing" your mail is a potentially confusing term. You actually stop getting mail, but stay subscribed to the list. You will not get any mail you missed, and it will not be stored anywhere for you. Also bear in mind that you must turn your mail back "on" when you wish to receive it again.
Why bother you ask? Two reasons come to mind. First, statistics on your use of the list are compiled since you subscribed. They will change if you unsubscribe, then resubscribe. More importantly, if you leave an automated reply when you go away, the list will bounce these in a loop, causing you to be dropped from the list automatically. Postponing will prevent that, and keep you subscribed.
