Doggie Massage

Hello Doodle Family

Wondering if anyone out there knows anything about the Chicago School of Canine Massage. I have been looking at maybe taking a course there to develop a small business /hobby for when I retire. I am very familiar with the many benefits of massage for humans like myself and I have been really impressed reading about all the avenues that are open to use massage to help our fur babies with sports injuries, aging, arthritis, even palliative care. Elliott has had his paws… Continue

Bunged up Doodle

Hi Doodle friends

Looking for your opinions. I think Spencer has finally done it.  Super counter surfer and snitch extraordinaire must have swallowed something that doesn't go through easily. Since this morning, he has been trying to poop with no results. He isn't particularly distressed, laid on the floor all through dinner quite peacefully. Surfed before dinner as always to see what was on the counter. Only unusual behaviour was barking when I came home from work to let me know he…

What I have learned today, by Kathy

What I have learned today

1. I don't know how to turn on the inside water valve to operate the hose outside after winter shutdown.

2. When you turn the valve on wrong, the water pours out on the other side of the house where you can't see or hear it - lots and lots of water!

3. My neighbours are missing a bag of topsoil that they had stored against the fence

4. 2 bricks is not enough to deter a determined topsoil thief from tunnelling under…

What do all you Doodles love to do in Spring?

Spencer - I love love love to dig for buried relics of the lost Doodle civilization in the cool wet mud. I also love to go out and sniff out bunny treasures that have appeared again in our yard. And I love to bark and bark and bark......

Elliott - eeeewwwwww!!! Let me apologize for Spencer - that's just gross bro!! I love to go out and just sit on the deck in the sunshine and sometimes bark hello at robins. Also the neighbour's cat comes by more since it's warmer, and I stand guard to keep… Continue

Baby Jaws Returns!! Help!

Spencer is about 2 years younger than Elliott. So when we first got Spencer, Elliott was still somewhat into puppy challenges. We called them Jaws and Baby Jaws.

Since we picked them both up on Saturday at their "Auntie Dawn's", the kennel where they always go and seem very happy, Baby Jaws has returned. Spencer has been an absolute demon. We don't have to be out of the house, or even out of the room. He is just grabbing random stuff and taking it away to chew. The list goes on and…

Spencer's Dilemma

All our dear doodle friends know how hard I been trying to make a pro-fe-shunal career for myself. I had to drop out of bedience skool when I was little cuz my grandma broked her hip and then my Mommy had to look after her and we dint get done bedience skool.  My mom said I was sorta acting like a ditsy doodle at the time, so things rolled along and we never went back. Course, I is a very smart doodle like all of you, and I already know all that sit, stay, come stuff. Sometimes I even does…

Want to play a game?

So a while back, Meranda wrote about Mable barking all the time. She asked why. Everybody here knows that us Doodles are great barkers, but what makes us bark? Spencer and me started a list and we want you to add to it.

Why do Doodles Bark?

1. Because.......ya just because

2. Because we are really really good barkers.

3. We has to look after our humans an proteck them.

4. Sometimes it's a contest. Who can be loudest? Who can make Mom yell first? Who has the…

Wish us luck tomorrow

Tomorrow Elliott will have his surgery by the new vet to remove the lump in his neck. I hope it goes well. I am so worried that we have spent several months "watching" it as the previous vet recommended, and it may turn out to be more than a cyst after all. I will have difficulty coming to terms with it if we shouldn't have waited. Thought I would feel better if our doodle friends were out there supporting us. Thanks, and we'll let you know tomorrow.

New toys!!

We got some new toys that you guys might like. Mom was so happy with our first ones that today she went and got another one for each of us, cuz  we really really likes them. Spencer has been chewing and chewing his, and we even took them with us to camp for a whole week and they don't even look used hardly. You know Spencer - he's chewed up everything there is, 3 pairs of scissors in just the last month. He hasn't even dog-eared these toys - haha!! Mommy puts nice treats in them for us.…

What would you do? Advice needed please...

Some of you may recall our story about a trip to the vet and the shannanigancs caused by my boys that resulted in a needle in my foot and dog barf all over the vet's shoe. As funny as that was, I was concerned about the vet. He just didn't seem like he was banging on all cylinders. I wondered if he was showing signs of early dementia, but dismissed it because I'm hypersensitive to that sort of stuff because of my job.

So today we went to the vet for Spencer's vaccines, and we…

Swimming Pools

All of Harrison's posts have reminded me, I need to ask everyone a question.

We are thinking of having an unground swimming pool put in (whenever we dig out from the huge snowbanks and thaw ourselves out for spring and summer LOL.)

Some of the pool installers have been trying to get us to go with a concrete pool, saying that the dogs will likely damage a vinyl liner. Difference in price is astronomical. 

Actually, our boys have never had the chance to go swimming. I…

My Parents are Weird - by Spencer

You would have thought sumthin terrible happened for all the fuss they made, like a cat burglar or sumthin.

My Dad don't feel good today. He says he's cold or sumthin, but he's wearin shorts, so go figger. Anyway, tonight, sted of him cooking dinner like always, Mom told Dad she would make sum thin - ruh-oh! That never happens so I thought I better keep a close eye. Mom put a pan on the stove and got these things out of the fridge. They were white and not really round, sort of round…

Ear Licking? eeeewwww.......

Does anyone else have a dog that persists in licking another dog's ears? 

Elliott is obsessed. He pushes Spencer's ear flap back and then licks the outer part of his inner ear for endless periods of time. He isn't picky which ear, will lick the ear that is closer to him.

Spencer, who is usually the ADHD poster puppy, just sits there still as can be and lets him do it. He never sits that long for anything!

As far as I can tell, there is nothing wrong with Spencer's ears.…

SMILE!! Funny story

Last evening our doorbell rang around 5.30 p.m. I wasn't going to answer it because it's so embarrassing when Elliott and Spencer act like a couple of junk yard dogs, barking and carrying on so much you can't hear yourself think. But, since it was early, I thought it might be kids collecting canned goods or something other than a sales person. So I went to the door.

The boys were in fine form, jumping and barking up complete bedlam, as I opened the door just far enough to wedge my…

Spoke too soon.......

Just the last few days I have been thinking that Spencer, at not quite 15 months, is finally growing out of some of his puppy naughtiness. As usual I spoke too soon.............just got these back from him.............he seemed surprised that I wanted them!…

And so it continues......

So to follow up on yesterday's eating of the birthday cake by my lovely counter-surfing boys, and then the stripping of the bedroom wallpaper by the "napping" birthday girl, my luck has continued.

This morning my husband and I were playing cards with our 6 year old twin granddaughters. It was a game called "Slap Jack" and what got slapped was me. My middle finger on my right hand accidentally got broken. I have a cast from my fingers to half way to my elbow, leaving only my thumb and… Continue

The Great Asparagus Incident - dedicated to Cousin Curly who we hope is now on the mend

This blog may contain "graphic" imagery and "coarse" language - viewer discretion is advised - LOL

For anyone concerned about this, the story ends happily for the dog involved........

Hi Everybody

A few days ago when Curly was first sick, I posted that his story was reminding me of a story from long, long ago involving my first bouvier…

I can't wait to bring my boys home today!

So excited to see my boys today! We have been away in the U.K. For a week and I missed them SO much.

We were in Dublin, Ireland and then in London, England. In both those cities I don't know how people can have dogs (other than purse-dogs). Not much green space, crowded housing with very few actual yards, small if any. I laughed in the stores where they all had signs stating that dog must be carried on the escalators. I can't begin to imagine even lifting one of my guys off the… Continue
