Grooming Question

I was trimming the hair around Bogey's eyes and I couldn't help but notice some hair around his eyes that looked like eye lashes.  Are these actually eyelashes?  and should I leave them alone?

Our 8 Week old Goldendoodle! - Questions

We just got to take our 8 week old Goldendoodle home this weekend!  Does anyone have any tips for crate training?  Our little guy barks all night long as soon as we put him in his crate as he is very lonely.  Also, we took him for a 20 minute walk today on his leash - does anyone know if 8 weeks is too young to be walking a puppy?  He's had his 2 set of shots so far.  Maybe we should be waiting until he gets all of his shots during his first year.  Also, can walking a puppy hurt the pads on…

Gizmo's Last Check Up On His Leg

Yesterday we went to the vet to re-check Gizmo's leg.  The vet was very pleased and told us he could be off ALL restrictions!  YEA!  Doggie Daycare here we come!  He hasn't been to Daycare in a long time and misses his friends.  Since I volunteer there once in a while, I can take him with me for free.  So, next Wednesday he will get to go again.


We still need to walk and always exercise the leg before & after - stretching exercises.  Gizmo knows that he has to stretch…

Sad news

Well I was going to tell you about my busy day today because we had a "garage sale" which I didn't understand because I don't think Daddy and Mommy would have somewhere to put my car and our truck if they sold the garage... and I also went to the park with Mommy and I was so tired at the end of it all...

However in the middle of the day, Mommy told me that my cousin and friend Charlie's kitty puppy had to go to Rainbow Bridge and ...

Remember I told you about my cousin Charlie…

Bully sticks vs. Rawhide? other choices?

I've been trying to explore some other ideas to satisfy Remy's need to chew and also keep him stimulated.  We've been giving him the spiral bully sticks and he likes those alot.  I know they are fully digestible and they get really soft when he chews them down so I feel like they are pretty safe.  I broke down and bought a rawhide/beef chew the other day and he ended up swallowing a larger chunk than I would of liked and it really scared me.  He's fine but after reading and talking with…

Our First Class Since Kindergarten Puppy Classes

Tonite we went to our first Beginning Obedience Class.  This class is an introduction to Obedience ... learning the simple things that will be needed in the actual Obed. Class.


Gizmo has been practicing "Watch Me" as was suggested by my friends here on the site.  He's gotten very good at it actually!  HOWEVER, in class he was not even interested in the treats.  There was another much smaller class going on in the other side of the room.  I think it was the Obedience Class. …

When Do Males Learn To Lift Their Legs To ...........

Gizmo is about a week short of being one year old.  He still squats to pee.  Do all male dogs lift their legs or is it something they have to learn?  Silly question, I know, but I figured he would be lifting by now.

I Finally Graduated!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

 After six weeks of Puppy training and dealing with a mean bully I have finally graduated from Puppy training. My mommy and I worked hard!!! I wasn't the Valedvictorian ( there wasn't one), but I finally made friends with Beya the bully. I am now going to continue training, but my mommy says i am going to try a new trainer. Our trainer was very nice, but she kept saying I am goofy, but that's part of my" Doodly," charm.…

Bite inhibition question

Our Jasper is 15 weeks old. He has learned to control how hard he puts his teeth on us, but is still very 'mouthy'.
How old should he be when we start the 'no teeth on people...ever' rule? I know teething is just around the corner...

School time!!

Today mommy took me out and we went to a place with lots of other dogs. Mom was talking to a lady about something but I wasn't paying attention because I was watching doggys play together in a room. When mommy was done talking to the lady she bent down and told me it was time for me to be a grown doodle girl. So we went into the room with all the doggys and even though I'm never shy, I actually was today. I was next to my mommy the whole time and I sat between her legs. Some doggys came up to… Continue

As you all know we have been training Mercy since she was young to be a service dog .

She suggests…

Puppy Pigeon goes to Heaven

Hi guys, today on our walk Milo found a puppy Pigeon & picked it up because it didn't look very happy. Mummy got cross & told him to leave it alone, which he did but I felt sorry for the puppy Pigeon so I went & got it, and then ran off with it. Mummy told me to stop but I really wanted to try & make it better (like Dr Nug or Dr Puk do with their stuffies). Mummy eventually started running the other way saying she was leaving me, oh what a dilema, I started chasing her with…
