Please Help The Scoldy Hangashore Newfoundland

Hello -

According to a recent survey, one out of every thousand Newfies suffers from the affliction known as "Scoldyshore", a combination of "Hangashore" and "Scoldyness". Recent studies suggest that this malady is one-hundred percent preventable. The suffering it causes is beyond description - just look at the pictures. We ask that you take a few minutes to view this video and that you then donate what you can, however small, to help prevent Hangshorism and Scoldyness among the Gentle Giants.

Thank you,

The Society to Prevent Scoldy Hangashores

That is one of the saddest things I've ever seen. Don't let your Dad do that to you Satch.

Satch contrary to popular belief, it is ok not to like the water. Perhaps you are more of a draft newf than an ocean newf.

Be yourself , find your thing, it's Ok buddy

Tell your dad to let it go....we love you just the way you are!!!
Don't ever change buddy. Those of us that love the water will swim and those of us that love hanging ashore will do just that!

To the third post, since no one answered, I will try to explain, though I might be wrong.

A hangashore is one who doesnt enjoy the water hence they hangashore.

Now the scoldy part i think, is a made up expression to describe one who is pounting after be scolded ( I think that because look at the poor guys face.

SO combined he is a scoldy hangashore, or scoldyshore for short.

Any clarification would be appreciated.
