A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers
I haven't been the best at updates lately, we've been very busy! But, everyday Mowgli continues to steal every tiny piece of our heart we have left. He is everything that was promised of a golden doodle...and so much more.
One major difference we have noticed is his mellow attitude. He still mouths...he continues to lose teeth quite frequently, but, we think he is nearing the end of that. We are able to have him in bed with us as we unwind without him chewing on the covers, our feet, etc. He also knows that when it's time for bed, it's time to "kennel up" and usually goes without any struggle or promise of a treat. He knows our routine well, and, for the most part..follows it pretty well.
We still have trouble in the car. Unless he is able to stick his head out the window, he usually gets nauseous pretty easily which requires us to always have a towel ready. He does do better if he can put his head out the window...unfortunately, that's not alway possible. A few weeks back, Casey was getting ready to take him to the vet and he jumped out the window! Thankfully, they weren't off the driveway yet, and Mowgli didn't get hurt, but, it makes us very hesitant to have the window open at all when we're driving unless someone has a firm hold on him! We have a 7 hour car ride coming up next week....I hope he does ok....any tips?
Soon, we'll have to take him in to get neutered...we're also going to get him microchipped at this time. I remember doing this to dogs we had when I was growing up and I just remember them being very groggy and a bit grouchy for a day or so. I'd rather do it sooner and get it over with!
One of our favorite things to do is take Mowgli on walks and take him out in open fields. He will fecth sticks that are as big (and bigger!) than him for hours. I don't care what they say - dogs ABSOLUTELY smile. I always tell Casey that I hope Mowgli is happy with us...but, I know he is. We couldn't be more in love with him!
