Two things: Newfies are my favourite dogs of all time. And this has to be one of the funniest things I've ever read, mostly because I remember hearing it from MY daughter at that age: “Mummy?” Rosie said, her voice wavering. “What does ‘fucking’ mean?”

A wonderful Christmas romp - the Weasleys were brilliant!

This = all kinds of awesome.

I absolutely love Newfoundlands, I couldn't believe that was the kind of dog you'd chosen Harry to become! It totally fits! I was having visions of that being the kind of animal he'd be if he was Animagus after this! Anyway! lol

I really loved this, I loved the Draco you wrote, he was briliant. I could just see him having an eniterly different side to his personality, and I loved that it was rescuing animals!

This was really sweet and lovely, and I just completely and utterly ADORE it. I want to put it in my pocket and have it with me all day lol. ♥♥♥♥♥

*heart bursts with joy*

this was so, so, heart-warmingly lovely! a perfect fic for animal lovers! this draco simply melted my heart over and over. you did a wonderful job letting the reader wonder and then learn about and then fall in love with him right along with harry. *loves* harry as the dog was brilliant, and i loved the shifting pov - seeing his human-like qualities through draco's eyes, as well as his own thoughts from the perspective of a dog. awesome. i almost wept for draco during the parting scene! so many wonderful details: martin as the linchpin was such a great touch, ic ron and hermione and darling rose, and i LOVED amelia. the chirping! the final two scenes were the most melting of all, and i think i could possibly float the rest of the day off the feel-good vibes. :) fabulous job!

YAY!!!!!!!!! That was all part of the plan! I love writing fluff and animals. It's my favorite :D

I'm so glad you liked it!

What a wonderful story. Your Harry and Draco (and Hermione) were brilliant. I loved that Draco was good with animals, knew how to treat them. Martin the house-elf was awesome, as was Draco's cat. I also liked Draco and Hermione's friendship.

“She just doesn’t like that he likes pretty boys,”
“But… I like pretty boys too,” Rose said in confusion. “Will Nana not like me anymore either?”

I almost laughed aloud at that and some other moments, Rose was pure delight.

Rose was a kick in the shorts to write! So was angry!fuzzy!Harry, hahaha!

Thank you!
