Rooney is home from his procedure

Hi all,

Thanks for keeping Roon in your thoughts and prayers today - I know they worked! He was in good spirits when I picked him up - he couldn't wait to get out of there! Just brought him home and he ate some dinner, had a pain pill, and is presently sleeping on his favorite fuzzy rug. I asked my husband to pick up a cone collar on the way home from work because he is already trying to lick the suture site. Gotta keep that clean and dry.

The vet took another…

Dyna is a Swimmer

Well it is official I am a swimmer. My brother John and my dad are camping at the lake. John was out in the water beyond where I could touch and dad was holding me in the water and he let me go and John called me and I went to him on top of the water and them he held me for a minute and sent me back to dad. They kept doing that until I was swimming all over. Here I come Doodle Olympics, I am a professional now. I LOVE camping. I especially love the chipmunks they keep me very entertained.…

New Doodle Mama :)

Hello! I am excited to have found this network and wanted to write this quick blog.

We have just adopted a 12 week old Goldendoodle that we named Dougie.

He is the sweetest and most gentle puppy that I have been around in all of my life. 

Our young teen and 19 month old just love him already; as do my husband and I.

So, today was our first full day with our puppy ...

My husband took him to…

I'm alive !!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone, It's Ollie!

Looks like the last post mommy put on was right after my neutering....well she kept me!!!!......even though she kept telling me if I continued being a crazy doodle she was going to give me away!!! I hope everyone has had a great summer. So far I have got to go camping and sleep out side in a tent and I made sure to keep my humans safe all night by growling and barking at any small noise...( I didn't want anyone to seek up on us) I'm not sure why mommy and daddy… Continue

Need HELP!

My friend has an 18 month old golden doodle that she got from a breeder just over a year ago. After a few days away from her, he has developed bruising all over his body, he is extremely lethargic and he appears to be having problems with his back legs. He was home with friends & was totally normal until last night. The vet is keeping him overnight for observation, but is at a loss for a definitive diagnosis.



Has anyone else experienced this or heard of anything like this,… Continue

Winter blues

Now I know we have a few months to go before snow starts to fall upon us but can any of you tell me, how you cope with your doods feet in it??

Abby my old dood ends up limping & I end up with numb fingers trying to get ice balls out of her pads. Now having Indie as well, I'm going to have double the challenge of keeping them clear & having even colder fingers!

Millions of Doodles!!

Oh my dear Doodle Cousins and Friends, I am SO, SO tired... As I cuddle up for bedtime with Daddy, I've asked Mommy to tell you about our very first Doodle Meetup! It was SO MUCH FUN and SO EXCITING... and guess what? We ran into my brother Aren! Yes, he is my littermate, born on the same day, same place and to the same Golden Retriever Mama! This doesn't mean that I don't love my Doodle Brother from another Doodle Mama, Sunny Ray that lives with Auntie Mitzi... but it was pretty neat to see…

Grooming Before and After

I'm always sad when I have to take bogey to the groomer.  I love his hair long and wavy.His grooming maintenance was getting difficult so I needed to make it easier.  It was getting so difficult to maintain.  So, off to the groomer he went.

PEMON GOT A SURPRISE YESTERDAY!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!  Pemon here.  You know the Gentle Giant.  I had the biggest surprise of my life yesterday.  Daddy and Mommy are so protective of me and I have lived a very sheltered life.  Also, sometimes I am very difficult when Daddy walks me.  I've gotten better, but since he had lost so much weight, he is afraid he won't be able to control me if I'm pulling too hard on the leash.

Well, yesterday, he said to Mommy, "I'm going to try something"  He put the leash on me and put me in the…

Doodles have strange taste buds.

Dyna has not been bad about eating strange things but when she decided to do it she did it up right. She was in her bed between our chair yesterday and began to throw up. At first I thought is was a little animal or a mouse. But at closer inspection it was a SOS pad. I couldn't believe my eyes. What would ever posses her to eat something like that. She appeared to get rid of it all but I called the vet. Her first response was is it a doodle. They do have a reputation. But she told me to feed…

Doodle Discipline Question?

Okay, I need help!  My sweet loving Dulcie doesn't understand "NO!".  Or I should say she understands, but doesn't care!  How do you discipline your doodles?  One of my biggest concerns is leaping and tackling, which have gotten worse at almost 8 months.  She is only 31 lbs., but when she comes at me full tilt, she can definitely knock me off balance.  Of course, I have never hit her, not even tapped her with a newspaper, so she has absolutely no fear, and when I say "NO!", she just stands…

Gizmo and the Vacuum

Today I decided to clean the garage floor.  Terry had mown the lawn and the loose grass was getting tracked into the house through the garage.  We have a garage vacuum in the garage .... it's kind of like a wet/dry shop vac that hangs on the wall. 

 

Gizmo was out playing with his Jolly Egg (photos have been posted), but when he heard the vacuum, he came into the garage to "help".  He likes to chase the long hose and the head that goes on the floor.  I had laid the handle down…

Doodle Meetup!!

Hi Doodle friends!!

Guess what? Mommy keeps telling me that this coming Sunday is going to be a very special and happy day because we’re going to go to a Doodle Meetup!

At first I thought that you guys were all going to be there because you are all Doodles and are my friends and that would be the happiest day of my life ever!... But Mommy says that will be the Doodle-Palooza when we win the lotto... what is the lotto? Is it like a really yummy…

Giardia

The vet confirmed this morning that Rooney has giardia. Poor guy. I know it's extremely common in puppies and not likely to be fatal, but I just feel terrible for him. Between the oppressive heat and persistent diarrhea he's been a trooper. I'll start him on a 7-day course of Panacure tonight - hopefully that eradicates the darned parasite. As if that weren't enough, he is getting neutered on 8/31. This must be what parent empathy/guilt feels like!

As you can see in this photo he can…

Stay safe and let us know if you are O.K.

Dulcie's Growth Chart

For those of you who have smaller doodles, I thought I would post this chart of Dulcie's weekly growth.  She is supposed to be a medium doodle (30-35 lbs.), but we all know how "supposed to" goes! I didn't keep up with her height, but she seems to have leveled out and her withers are right at my knee (which is about 17 in. in the middle of the knee cap).  She was pretty steady gaining 1.4 lbs. per week up until about 6 weeks ago, then she started having slows and spurts.   Anyway, here it…
