Tomorrow my brother Brodie is going to get fixed. I think he is perfect, but mom and dad say otherwise. He will also get a chip, (Not the potato kind) so if he gets lost we can find him. His bark is getting deep and strong like mine.Mom has a hard time telling our barks apart. It will be so strange that he will be gone all day tomorrow. I will miss him but will take extra good care of him when he comes home. He will wear the cone of shame like I did. I will help him all I can.. Keep good…

A turtles best friend

A few weeks ago we found a turtle walking in the street. We asked around and no one claimed it and so we have a new addition to the family.  We have had them before, but they always got away and our difficult to find.  Within a couple of days our Doodle was able to find the turtle whenever we asked him. He would search around…

Wondering just how big our doodle with get?

I was curious if anyone knew just how big our Bella will get based on her weighing in at 41pds at 5 months and 12 days old. How much weight is usually from 6 month to a year? Her mother was 45 pounds and her father was 55, I have heard take the weight of them add together and divide by 2, yet everyone who see's her says she is going to be a lot bigger than 50pds.  Thanks!

Hello Everyone,

 Just saying hello.  Ive jumped the gun a little bit and signing up for an account was a little premature. I haven't received our puppy yet. I'm really looking forward to getting our little fuzz ball. I'm a dog person and I haven't had a dog in my life for over 15 years and I really miss it. Its not because I haven't wanted one it was just not fair for the dog because of my work schedule. I love backpacking and hiking and I'm excited about having a…

Calling all with a doodle puppy and a young doodle....a question

As many of you know we just added an 8 week old female pup, Delilah, to our household.  Jackson is being very good, although he can get a bit excited.  Delilah is no saint and their very supervised (I keep Jackson on a very short leash so he can't hurt her with his size!) play can escalate to a full out rumble after a while.  I don't want either to think such rough play is OK all the time.  I sleep them in their crates next to each other at night to have quiet time also.  Am I being overly…

Changed Dog Food

Piper has always had a strange smell to her ears...not a gross smell, but always kind of yeasty smelling. when we first got piper, we feed her Costco's kirkland dry dog food...after several months, we switched to costco's kirkland nature's domain grain free... also tried some other good quality brands of grain free dry dog food as well, because she was doing a lot of scratching at her bottom & at the base of her tail. None of the grain free foods changed her itching or yeasty smelling…

Our Aunt Amy and Cousin Kona came for the weekend. Aunt Amy said that mom and dad were away on a Staycation in a place called Scottsdale at a resort tip Sunday. We were both okay with tat, cash we had cousin Kona to play with. She is always so much fun.. Kona and I (Brodie) spent sometime outside digging in the mud. Harrison would not play with us.. Aunt Amy had to give me a bath and wipe the house down after I brought in a ton of mud.. Whoops... We did have fun.  

Harrison and Kona…

Leo update!

Leo is almost 12 weeks old. We have been busy working on house training,basic commands and crate training. He is getting the hang of using the bell for going outside to potty. Some days are better than others. But hanging in there. He has gone to puppy socialization class and puppy kindergarten. Loves treats so he is very motivated to sit and other basic things. His crate is working out great now. He stays overnight without whining and can go in for my times to leave short hours during day.… Continue

Daisy has been with us for a month now.  Two weeks our big, overzealous 2 yr old puppy, Howie, crashed into Daisy while playing and broke her arm.  Surgery was required and now all is well and she has a soft cast.  We find it near impossible to keep a 3 month old puppy sedate as the post-op instructions would have it.  She loves to run and pounce.  She is not supposed to roughhouse, but that is hard to prevent, too.  Often she is the instigator.  At her 12 week check, she was 15.9 lbs with…

Summer News!

Hi, Doodle Buddies and Famblies!  Mommy thought I should write and let evvybody see the pitcher we tooked of my outfit for the ‘tirement home last week and also tell you guys what we been up to.

She's a Doodle!!

So, this is funny. I brought Lilly to her favorite Home Depot today. A patron stops me and says "Finally a real Poodle not one of those Labordoodles or something." I said, " I hate to tell you she is a Goldendoodle and the best dog you will ever find." She said " I am so sorry to insult you." me not insulted.

Found this on Facebook and made my laugh and cry and realize that (minus the shedding), our Doodles make good on this every day... We are so fortunate!

Kitty-sitting and little vaca-shun!

Hello Doodle Family!!!

So last weekend, Mommy came back from her works and picked up our bags and me and put us all in the car and we went off to have a little mini-vaca-shun.

It turns out that my Cousin Luna and my Auntie Michelle and Uncle Fred (that came to visit us one time in the Christmas times) went away to an island (I'm sure they went to talk to the oceans and to visit the whale puppies!) and asked us to kitty-sit and said we could have a mini-vaca-shun in…

Today was the day!!

We went and picked up our Delilah today from the breeder.  She is a peanut, weighing in 7 lbs. less than the largest of the 10 pups in the litter, but she is beautiful.  The 1 1/2 hr. ride home was uneventful and all the animals, Jackson and his 4 feline siblings seemed to be unphased at her arrival!  Jackson has been rather excited and she is so small and he is 75 lbs. so we have been very careful with them when together.  We are doing short sessions and praising him to the moon and back…

Grumpy Dog!

I am having a problem with Simon being "grumpy" with other dogs.  He is fine with our 5 yr old Murphy but when he gets close to other dogs, he starts growling and he will snap if he is close enough.  He was such a "socialized" puppy but since this winter, he isn't the same.  At Easter, he got into a small fight with my son's dog which really got us worried.  Has anyone had this issue with your minature doodles?  I have taken him to "puppy" class and we are now in the "puppy 2" class now. …
