Our Buddy went home to Jesus just before Christmas ... my heart was crushed and broken ... he was the best ; had the greatest personality ... so faithful ... so loving ... never whined, never begged, never cried ... okay I can't say anymore ... it gets to me .. but I wanted to let you know. Grace is still a baby ...but bear who has been with Buddy much longer he was lost without him ... he really missed Buddy ...thankfully he had Grace who did a good job of…Continue
Okay ... I know she has issues with dirt , weeks , leaves ... we do all we can to prevent her from having opportunity to eat that ... but still ... THEN the other day ug ug ug ... she was eating poop !!!!
Well I am not sure if she was eating it because maybe I stopped her before she could ...but she actually picked it up and moved it somewhere else and that is when I caught her ... by the way ...it wasn't her poop ...it was her sister bears poop ! Help ...why ? Is there something I…Continue
She was constantly licking and biting her bottom .. it was discolored but I kind of thought that was normal cause it was the bottom ... her chin was discolored too so I didn't know ....but the vet said it was not normal for her bottom and was like an infection and gave her meds ... honestly the meds did nothing ... but I thought " it must be the food " I know that if the food has something in it or is missing something it can cause problems for the dog ... went back to the expensive food…Continue
So good to see you all and the babies growths ! But it takes so long to "catch up" ...loving all your pictures !
Grace is growing up to be that Giant you all talked about ...not too mention a MUDDY ONE TOO !! She loves to dig and yes, looks just like some of your pictures ! She is a LOVER for sure ... and a GIANT lap dog ( thanks to "us" ) Only 4 months old ... maybe 4 1/2 ... she is going to out beat Peamon I think ... gee my 16 y/o old is 6'3 now so Gracie fits right in…Continue
Grace did not act at all like she had any problems .. and I feel horrible for not even checking ~ but she showed no signs of discomfort at all ...turns out she had 2 ear infections with mites ... I felt so bad for my baby ...but she never even scratched her ears ...
other than that she is healthy and in great shape ... she weights 16.7lbs ...she was 10 when she came to us ... I thought for sure she was like 20 lbs !
Her and bear finally got the tug of war down tonight !! Yeah…Continue
Grace's first two weeks here poop seemed okay ...little diarrhea ( expected ) but then normal
However I have noticed this week her poop is looking really strange ...it is dark and gooey ...like pasty
I know I see the Vet tomorrow but has anyone else seen this ? She is not acting sick ... no change in her personality at all ... but i am very concerned about this strange poop
No food changes ...that is not a reason ; although if she were going to have strange poop it…Continue
okay guys you didn't tell me that Grace was going to be RAMBUNCTIOUS !!! ( well maybe some of you did ~ debra ~ LOL )
The best way I can describe her is she came to us as an infant and in 3 weeks has entered into her "terrible twos" ... and her size has about quadrupled ! She hasn't actually chewed anything since my computer cord ...but she goes after my shoes and i have to say is hysterical when she grabs something and we yell out "Grace come back here " she takes off…Continue
I have been gone from here way too long ~ Lets see ; Grace got to my computer cord ! That sort of hindered me ; ya think ? LOL
Then .... well a looong story short ~ my body has been causing me grief and I have not even wanted to get on line ... such a poor excuse I know ! I really thought about you every day ... and wished you could have been here to see her (grow!!!)
I am so sorry for not responding to messages ~ and even now it is so late and I need sleep for church tomorrow…Continue
She is soooo cute and doing great !! Lets see, she is now pooping AND peeing outside ! If for some reason I miss it ... she will pee on the paper I have down by the door ... no accidents !! She is doing fantastic ! Thanks for all the encouragement to endure and stick with it ! Didn't take long at all ...
Now for a really good part ... I put bells on the door in hopes that I can teach her to jingle them when she has to go ( eventually ) so I jingle them when ever I take her out .. then…Continue
Her flight was about an hour and 1/2 delayed ! When she got here she was cornered in the back of the crate but I went right in to get her (stinky and all ! ) Who was it that told me to bring towels (Laurie?) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!
She cuddled all the way home ( see pic) and we got home she had some water,didn't want food, didn't poop or pee so she got a bath :)
then she got acclimated to her brothers , to her kennel and to parts of the house (without the carpet) she…Continue
I sound like such a whiner ! Lets hope Grace is not !
But... I have not written my breeder since last week because I have been trying to be patient :)
So I wrote last night and she hasn't written back yet !!!! Duh ! Chill Marie ...she is a nurse ... it is Fathers Day ... and Sunday !! Chill ...
Okay but I can't !!!!!
I need that comfort of knowing that Gracie is all packed and ready to come ...
and what to expect ...what should the airline be giving me ? Do…Continue
I know that taking Grace to classes would be the best ...but since getting her has covered every gift for the entire year + ... school may be out for a while ..
I need some training advice ... I ESPECIALLY want to know how to train her to stay on our property ...near me without the fear of running away ...
My standard does wonderful with that ... my toy on the other hand is an escapee .. she is getting better and is very smart ...I think I just babied her too much ( spoiled…Continue
Okay ... for those of you who have more than one dog or dood at home .. when you bring in a new pup/baby ...how do you keep it separate from the other dogs ?
My standard is constantly eating my toy's food .. .they are in different rooms ...but still he goes to his and eats it all ...now my toy won't go and eat his ... so I never know if he (the toy) has actually eaten or if Bud has eaten it ! I don't know how to stop him from doing that ...If I close the door then Bear can't get to it…Continue
Is anyone in her path ? Please stay safe and as we say here BUNKER DOWN !!!
Don't know where I have been but I just found out about her ! UG ...
My breeder would put the chip in before she gets here however i opted out ... what are your thoughts on that ..I just didn't want to put that in her body ... I know it has great benefits if lost and she were to end up in a vet or shelter who had the ability to scan ? But otherwise ...no one would ever know if she were just taken ( NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!! )…Continue
I have noticed that there are some who seem to all have the same pic of a doodle as their profile pic .. why would that be ?
Just curious ...
(My middle name )
There were so many great ideas ... and if I could get a few more doodles to name I would !! LOL
But I have decided on her name ... I have decided ~ even if there are a few more out there : )
Her name is ...yes ... it is…Continue
Lets see we have had a Frenchy, a Buddy, a Boo , a Meko ... they were all boys except for Meko ( none of them goldendoodles...all poodles :) …Continue
