I am 8 months old today

To celebrate today, mom took me on a nice log walk this morning. It is cloudy and cooler today which was nice. If it doesn't rain today, mom said we will go again this afternoon.

Dad is gone for a few days to a desert race. Seems odd that he is not here. I am excited that Amy is coming home tonight. She is always fun to play with.

Today I tried to help mom change the sheets on the bed. I love jumping up on the bed racing in circles and barking at mom. She on the other hand is…

Hey ya'll did you miss us?  My computer was down for a week and AT&T came today.   This was my only available day this week.  Needed a new Modem.  He said the other one shorted out?  I don't care as long as it didn't cost me anything.  LOL  Well now I'm up and running and I'm sure I have a lot of catching up to do. So it will take awhile because I have really busy weeks a head of me.

Well..............the good news.  The last 4 weeks I have gone to "Quit Smoking Now" Classes. …

Out with the family

Tonight I got to go out with mom and dad to get frozen yogurt. I love to ride in the car. It is one of my favorite things to do. 

I stay outside with mom while dad gets his and then I sit with dad so mom can get hers. The place they go is usually busy and tonight was no exception. The place was filled with little kids, my favorite thing to play with. They were running around and screaming. Mom made me sit nice and I did it. It was hard when the kids came up to pet me. They were nice…

WOW what a looker!

Awe thanks!

Today I had my first full grooming.(check out my pics)

Up until today mom had taken me to see my friend Millie a few times for a little trim here and there but never the whole treatment. Mom said that it was time so off we went today. WOW what an ordeal. I was there for 2 1/2 hours! First it was a trim with this machine that buzzed and vibrated. Then after all of that it was into the tub for a wash and conditioner. I love that part the most. My least favorite part…

Training questions for when new people come to the house.

Good morning Doodle Family!!


I have some training questions for bringing a new baby in the household. I am having a little boy and my due date is June 4th, 2014. Winston is amazing with little kids (though if we'd let him, he'd never stop kissing them). I love that you can see his attitude change when he is around children. He's much more gentle. He also has changed when it comes to interacting with me. He seems to know he needs to be more gentle with me, but when Ryan comes…

The swimming pool question led me to wonder how high a fence is needed to keep in a doodle? We are going to fence a good portion of the yard for the dogs. Chessie's center of gravity is low and I don't see him attempting to jump any fences, Eli on the other hand has long legs and I wonder?

Swimming Pools

All of Harrison's posts have reminded me, I need to ask everyone a question.

We are thinking of having an unground swimming pool put in (whenever we dig out from the huge snowbanks and thaw ourselves out for spring and summer LOL.)

Some of the pool installers have been trying to get us to go with a concrete pool, saying that the dogs will likely damage a vinyl liner. Difference in price is astronomical. 

Actually, our boys have never had the chance to go swimming. I…

Hurray mom and dad let me get in the pool. They moved the ladder and I got to swim for over an hour.. Oh how I have missed the cool pool. I am getting to be a very good swimmer. Mom and dad love when I swim cause I am warn out for the rest of the night. Only problem is that I stay wet forever, and smell like a wet dog.

Tomorrow I am off to the groomer for a bath and trim. I will post a picture after I get home.. This will be my first full grooming. Millie the groomer have asked mom…

Have you seen this commercial?

It made us laugh because it's cute and because I said to Pedro... "This is how you came to be!"... A Golden and a Poodle... :)

Where oh where is my Sandi

Happy Monday friends,,

I have searched the house today looking for my sister Sandi. Mom told me that she is at the vet getting her teeth cleaned. It is strange that she is not here to bug. No one to show my toys to except Mom and Dad and they are busy. Can't wait for her to come home. Hope she is okay, I really miss her.

Hugs and slobbers,

My Goldendoodle was diagnosed with Addison's Disease.

At this point we are trying with our vet to stabilize our Molly.  I have had issues with Molly from the moment we got her.  From the moment I got her we had to call her breeder.   We discussed her lack of eating, vomiting, diarrhea, and after 5 years we finally have an answer.   I received a text a few months back from another breeder that I should have Molly checked for Addisons because it ran in her pedigree.  I called our vet and after an ACTH test,  we found out she has Addisons.  Five…

Sunday in the sun

I spent today skimming the pool of all the leaves from the fruit trees. Dad was happy until a few minutes ago. Apparently fruit tree leaves give me really smelly gas.. Who knew..

Hugs and slobbers,

This is for any of you who have passed the CGC test with your doodle. Buddy and I are getting ready for the test. I could use some tips on passing by other dogs who are unknown to him on a loose lead. If he has met the dog and gotten a good sniff, he is usually fine, but he really wants to greet new friends enthusiastically.

Greeting new friends

Harrison is now 7 months old and whenever he greats new people, he pees all over. I am sure that there are other doodles out there that went thought this. Can anyone shed some light on how long this goes on for? He has been fixed which is suppose to reduce this, but not so far. If Harrison has seen you a lot then there is no problem, or if we kennel him until the guest are in the house and sit for a few, then he is okay.

We have tried various meeting techniques and so far we are still…

New Carpet

So mom and dad are installing new carpet on our patio. They had talked about just finishing the concrete so it would not be slippery when we got out of the pool, but thought it would be better it there was indoor/outdoor carpet so in the summer it won't be hot on my feet. They tell me that the summer temps here in AZ be over 100 degrees. I am excited cause that will be more swimming for me. 

Well while the carpet is being installed, I have had to stay inside so that I don;t…

Feeding .....

Gizmo has decided that he likes to eat with his bowl on the footstool in the living room.  AND, he usually won't eat unless I put it in his Kong first, or hide his Glucosamine tablets in it.  Quirky!!!

We started feeding him in the living room when he broke his leg about a year and a half ago.  He decided that he likes to eat by us .... that's not a problem.  I'm not sure how or why we put his bowl on the footstool, but he really likes it. 

Does anyone else have…

My Baby Girl - Brandi

My Baby Girl Brandi is growing - and since she has been the same weight for the last 3 month - I think she may be full grown.   She is weighing between 46 - 48 lbs.   Funny, I take her every month for a weigh in because she is so close to the limit on the heartworm meds.   

Brandi is so loveable and so a part of the family.    I am not sure why I forget to write about her experiences - maybe time just goes too quickly for me.

Brandi still has quite the puppy energy at times,…

Dog food

Our new puppy comes this weekend. We bought Costco puppy food because it had a high rating. Anyone have experience with it? What do you all feed your Doods?
