Potty Training Question

Okay, so maybe I just don't remember well from the last time I had a puppy, but it seems as if Bo is taking a lot longer to completely house train than I remember.  He started out doing pretty well ringing the bell to go out but now he won't do that anymore.  We will go a few days accident free and then have a few very puddly days.  Sometimes I think its a seperation thing, as I will usually find a puddle after I have been downstairs to do laundry.  I take him out before i go downstairs and…

Bo's first puppy sitter

So we will be gone for two days here soon to go to a funeral, so Bo and Herbie will be staying with our neighbor.  Any tips on making the seperation easier for Bo?  I have never been away from him for more than a couple hours, and so he is with me pretty much constantly.  He gets sad and cries if I even go downstairs without him so I woory about his seperation anxiety while I am gone.  He does already know our neighbors so that helps, but any other tips to make his first time away from mom…

Snowy weekend

This was a very busy weekend.  Today has been fun, but the weeiend didn't start out so great.  Late on Friday mommy had to take my baby human sister to the hospital because she sounded very strange, mom says that is what seal puppies sound like, but human puppies aren't supposed to make that noise.  They were gone a really long time and got back very early in the morning.  Mommy said they gave her some breathing treatments which helped some, but yesterday she still sounded a bit funny though…

Human Puppies and people 101

Hi Doodle friends!  Just wanted to share what I hsve learned so far about my family.  Today was an exciting day for all of us because I learned to jump out of my pen!  Mom was very proud of me when she came home from dropping my human sisters off at school that even though I had jumped out of my pen, I didn't make any messes and I didn't get into anything.  However she was not proud of me later when she left to pick my humans up and came home to find a puddle on the floor, me on the kitchen,…

I like my new family

Hi, this is Bo, it has been one week since I left the home where I was born and came to live with my family and I like it here!  I have lots of fun playing with my puppy brother Herbie, and with my 3 human puppies, and mom and dad.  Mom says I am a very smart boy because I am doing very good at learning sit, down, shake, and roll over.  I still need to work on stay a bit because with all of my puppy energy it is hard to sit still.  Mom got really excited yesterday when I rang the bell to go…

Welcome home Bo!

So we have been watching a litter of puppies grow up on one of our favorite breeders facebook pages and working on saving up enough money to put down a deposit and wait for our puppy.  As I was looking at the pictures of two 13 week old little boys who hadn't found homes yet, my husband says you know what lets get one of those boys.  After I picked myself up off of the floor, lol, I contacted the breeder whom I had already been talking to about future litters, and then made the 11 hour round…

Have you heard of

Anyone ever heard of Pioneer Prairie Doodles in Nebraska? We were planning on getting our doodle from a breeder in Iowa, but they are moving next year to the northeast US, and I am worried about not having enough saved by then. (We are paying off our daughters eye surgery while saving for our doodle). So looking for another good breeder just in case.

The long wait...

Hello, we started our goldendoodle search about a month ago, and have finally found a breeder we like and will be getting our new baby next spring sometime. Right now we have our Rat terrier Herbie, who has been an only dog since we lost our yellow lab Julie last year at the age of 11. I have a mad love for golden retrievers, but my daughters allergies have trouble with all the shedding, and she loves poodles, so I began researching goldendoodles and we decided a doodle would be the perfect…
