Night before the Night before Christmas

Anyone see this movie on the Hallmark Channel?  It sure looks like a doodle that Santa gives the little boy at the end of the movie.  And an adorable doodle at that!

Puppy Class

Tonight was our third class.  Gizmo is a hoot!  We learned "settle down" tonight.  I was amazed at how fast these pups learned it.  None of them obeyed on command and needed a little reminder on what to do, but they did it and stayed down until they were "freed".


Again, Gizmo & Dozer (the St. Bernard) were best buddies during play time.  When Dozer chased Gizmo, Gizmo would go through the Trainer's legs while she talked to us.  Of course Dozer thought he needed to…

Getting Sooooo Frustrated!

Gizmo seems to have an attitude problem ... I think.  I don't know .... maybe I'm over reacting, but I don't want to ignore this if it really is a problem.  It seems to be a Poodle trait.  When he's good, the Retriever really comes out.


Gizmo puppy bites ALL the time!  He attacks from the back when we're sitting or standing, walking or standing still.  Sometimes he bites really hard, other times he barely bites down.  If we correct him in ANY way, he gets a wild look in his…

First Puppy Class

We had our first puppy class last night.  We missed the first week, but were able to get in the second.  We were all signed up with one, but they cancelled because they didn't have enough puppies enrolled.  So I scrambled and my second choice said we could join but they started last week.  I didn't want to wait a few more weeks for another "maybe" class, so we joined this one.


There were five puppies in this class.  I think Gizmo was the youngest at 3 1/2 months (almost). …

stick like glue or anxiety

Sweet, sweet puppy, and Maggie a darling.  Her eyes and actions could be Izzi.  Neither of mine 'stick like glue', more like a rubber bands.  Bouncing back and forth making sure I'm still where they left me.    I consider that an owner issue...  as puppy's I want to know where they are within the house.  On the other hand at a year I want them strong within the individual personalities.  The whining would concern me more.  She is showing signs of anxiety.  Doggy day care often…

Getting Along With The "OTHER" Dog .....

We have a granddog, Mojo, who is a wonderful Daisy Dog.  Mojo is 4 years old.  When we got Gizmo three weeks ago, we introduced Mojo (4 years) to Gizmo (9 weeks).  Mojo was dominant and very excited at that time.  Poor Gizmo was still in shock from coming to a new home, etc.


A couple weeks later, we decided that Mojo and Gizmo needed to spend some doggie time together.  We do "doggie daycare" often for Mojo and it's important that they get along.  We brought Mojo over for the…

dewormer/fleas and lice question

Izzi and Charlie both seemed to be unusually itchy.   No fleas, ticks or lice...  I check them often because the run in an open field...    Regardless, after bathing them with an oatmeal (dog) shampoo,  I gave both a dose of Frontline on Tuesday of this week...  Thursday overnight, Friday morning I found the Charlie had scratched himself raw, and bleeding...     Vet said she believed he had a reaction to Frontline...   I have never seen this happen...  both he and Izzi have welts...  …

I had decided about a week or two ago that Gizmo needed "time-outs" when he gets out of control with biting and not listening to NO.  So when he acted up, I picked him up (he was still small enough to do that) and told him "You're going to get a TIME-OUT" in a very angry voice.  I put him in his "condo" (the laundry room with a gate where he sleeps) and told him Time Out!


In a few minutes I let him out and pet him and love him up.  He simply walks beside me to the living room…
