Default Newfoundlands?

I haven't been around in a while, but have been lurking a bit now that our "puppy" is about 5 1/2. Megan was only 5 or 6 months when we took the pics in the signature. Time sure does fly! We are looking at getting a second dog, and my husband brought up the idea of a Newfoundland. My husband and boys (15, 13 and 10) are fairly active hikers, campers, swimmers...etc) and ran into a couple and their Newfoundland on the lake the other day and fell in love.

Now, I'm aware of the fact that they are roughly the size of a horse, but the more I read about them, the more interested I am. It seems like the breed is generally great with kids, and that is important to us. I haven't been able to find much info on this board, so I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them? We do have a female Papillon as mentioned above, so I wonder if the size issue would be a problem? She's about 7 lbs. We do have a house and a large fenced in yard, so we have the room, but the thought of picking up huge poops have me a bit nervous since I'm used to Megan's "tootsie rolls" lol. Any thoughts or experiences??
