Gizmo Behavior Update

Gizmo seems to be growing up - emotionally as well as physically.  He is now 5 months old.  The puppy biting is not as bad as it used to be.  We now enjoy a snuggle on the bed after he goes outside to potty in the mornings.  He can jump up on the bed, but prefers to lay on it and have me lift his legs saying "up" to get on it.  Then he lays between us and lets us pet and love him.  Sometimes he tries a little biting, but usually stops when we tell him "be nice", "no bite", or "puppy…

24 hours in . . . . .

We collected Toffee, our nine week old Goldendoodle yesterday.  She is absolutely beautiful and a real bundle of fun.  I hope for a better night's sleep tonight though.

Doodle Eyelashes Questions

My 1 and a half year old goldendoodle has always had very long eyelashes (about 3" long.) I love his eyelashes but half of them fell out/ pulled out recently.  I later read that his lashes could be hurting him or obstructing his vision.  Two questions: do you trim your doodles lashes and will they grow back?

...and a Happy New Year!

As I curl up into a cuddly Doodle form (Mommy says I look like a fluffy donut!) I ask her to write a few lines to say how amazing this year has been in getting to know so many fellow Doodles and your beautiful humans that are so smart and so easy to train as my humans are. I've already said how grateful I am and I think we all are, for the walks, the sunny days, the rain, the snow, the mud puddles, the ocean, the lakes, the beaches and the big lawns and fields to run on. And we're thankful…

rawhide - loose stools ??????

i just learned that raw hide is responsible for my dogs loose stools. is this correct. i've been changing their food because i thought it didn't agree with them. and i just gave my doodles big rawhide candy canes for christmas. is it just certain raw hides or are some better than others. and what can i give them to counteract the loose stools after they have already eaten them.

Christmas only comes once a year!

Just wanted all my friends to know I had a wonderful day today.  Me and my best friend May got together (which we haven't done in awhile) and went shopping.  Not just any shopping but back in August I bought two certificates for $7.00 which gave you a $15.00 credit to spend at Kilwins Candy store. (They expire on Christmas day - so it was now or never!)  I had never been in there and it is only a couple of miles from my house.  I do think they maybe a chain, but their candy is just as good…

Christmas is nearly here!!

It's really really cold here just now, we've had all seasons in one day recenty, snow, ice, floods, hurricane winds, sunshine you name it we've had it, It's a quagmire here just now, lots and lots of rain that has turned the ground to a mub bath, which of course the doods love, i split my time between working in the shop, walking doods and washing floors.    I hate this time of year!!!   On the upside it's only 4 days until christmas and my daughter is coming home from Uni on the 24th, we're…

Do we need a professional help or is he just being a puppy?

I know I've posted that I've been frustrated with Gizmo many times.  I thought by now he would have settled down ... we've gone to Puppy Kindergarten, taken advice from everyone, and yet he's still biting, charging, not coming when called, and all around being naughty!


I know others who have dogs (not Doodles) the same age and they tell stories about their pups sitting in their lap and falling asleep next to them.  HA!  If we are within range, Gizmo does not let up. …

Need advice for future Grooming trips for Cookie

We have a Goldendoodle puppy who is almost 4 months old named Cookie. Today I took her to Petco for her first professional grooming session. I requested the puppy package which included a bath, shampoo, conditioner, nail trim, ear cleaning, and clip the hair from her face. Two hours later I came to pick Cookie up and she looked like a totally different dog! I asked them what did they do to my puppy! I was a little disappointed. Her hair was blow dried out no longer curly. She almost looked…

Tiffany question..

find a groomer in your area not affilated with a national brand name..   Mine is at my vet's..  I  found a picture, on this site, showing what I expected to find when  I returnred and future use..  I'm particular about Izzi's eyelashes...  for they are over an inch in length.   I requested groomer to not cut her down below two inches...  If she found any mats,  Just cut out the mats, that I wound deal with the regrowth...   By the time I was finished telling her what not to do she fully…

Pedro's letter to Santa

So Pedro got to see Santa today and have his picture taken with him... We'll share as soon as ready, but also Pedro wrote his letter to Santa for this year and he wants to share it with all his Doodle and human friends. So here it goes:

Dear Santa:

How are you? I hope everything is pawsome up there in the North…

Successful Doggie Day Care with Mojo

Today we decided to bring Mojo (the granddog) to visit Gizmo for a couple hours.  We were apprehensive because Gizmo sort of terroized Mojo the last time he was here - about 3 weeks ago or so.


This time we decided to not sit where Mojo could jump in our laps and be "safe", but let him deal with Gizmo on his own terms.  Immediately Gizmo wanted to play.  He pawed, jumped, barked and chased Mojo all around.  It didn't take long for Mojo to turn around and give back as good as…
