Thank you for the welcome. We actually don't have a doodle quite yet. We have been looking in Florida and GA we are in Northwest Florida. We came across beachside but trying to find someone else that went there to see what the experience is like and health of the pup! Thanks!!!
Thank you! I have been enjoying this site so much already! Rusty is my doodle who is almost 17 weeks old. A male and getting close to going to have the big surgery soon. He is such a smart loving dog! The best decision I have ever made! He's funny, clever and know just when I need to cuddle. I love looking at all the other dogs and posts!!
You'll have a great time, busy....lucky you're retired. We are too and Eli was a pretty easy puppy. We used a crate at night, I stayed with him until he calmed down, covered the front of it to minimize distraction. He pretty much slept until about 4:30 am (he now gets up at five). Later we allowed him a bed in our room and it has worked out pretty well. Potty training was challenging but once he got it, he was great (took a couple of months). Lots of chew toys and play.
Welcome Laura! Marley is adorable, I just love a new puppy. Enjoy because they grow so fast! Eli is almost 9 months and in no way resembles the little fella we brought home. But we love him dearly and you'll love Marley too. Enjoy this fun site. Can't wait to hear all about his homecoming.
