About Me:

I am married, have one grown daughter, and two amazing grandchildren - Kayla and Ty.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Our first doodle, Sedona, was a multi-generational labradoodle - apricot with red ears and a white face. VERY cute!!!! Born in August of 2009, she was full of fun, curiosity, and mischief!!! In December of 2015, she became suddenly ill and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, leaving a huge hole in our hearts. In January of 2016, we added Destino (Desi) to our family. He's a beautiful chocolate labradoodle, full of spunk and very smart! In August of 2016, we added Cori to the mix. Cori is a caramel and white parti and is Desi's half sister - same dad.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We chose a labradoodle primarily because of the reported hypoallergenic qualities - and because they are so darned cute!!!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Sedona was our squeaky ball addict. Time will tell what our new doodles love to do!
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
We are fortunate to have found a great groomer who works out of her home. An added plus is that she's just down the road from us!
Relationship Status:
Married

Thank you for the friend request.  Desi & Cori are so cute.  I saw in your bio that you lost your precious Sedona - which is just so heartbreaking.  I am sorry for your loss.  We had a standard poodle that got an autoimmune disease (IMHA) at 6.5 years old and he did not respond to treatment.  He crossed the Rainbow bridge in 2010.  I was beyond heartbroken and started researching non-shedding breeds on line, I ran into a breeder in Washington state that raised Australian labradoodles.  I  called the breeder to talk about the breed in general and she mentioned they had a litter of chocolates that were born on Dec 18th!  That was the day we lost our sweet boy Wilbur.  My husband was against getting a puppy so soon, but I could hardly function without a dog in our life.  I felt it was an omen and long story short - Charlie Brown came home on Valentines Day 2011.  He is definitely my heart dog.  When he was almost 2, our breeder bred Charlie's dad to a different female and the puppies were parti (chocolate & cream).  Beau just turned 5 and now I have two heart dogs - do not know what I would do without either of them.  Will be watching for your posts on DK.  If you ever get up to wine country in Washington - we live in Richland, email me and we will get together.

Deanna, what breeder did you go to for Desi and Cori?  I am always being asked for California breeders.

Thank you Deanna for the breeder information. I will definitely check it out.

We have a lot in common.  I also was an educator for 25 years and love Spec. Ed.  I worked in Brasil as a Peace Corp volunteer in Spec. Ed.  Here I taught all grades from Kg. - 6th and short assignments of higher than 6th.  My favorite is 5/6 grades.  I also have dealt with the death of a precious labradoodle (Hondo) but have moved beyond that and have several doodles in my life now.

We also are basically neighbors.  I live in Prunedale, just down the road from you. Take a look at my blog for the Poodle Days in Carmel from last weekend.  It is a very special activity for us.

Deanna, I am so sorry that you lost your precious Sedona. I had no idea but came here to check when I saw the question marks next to your name. So terribly sad and we share in your sadness.

Since I've just saw it on here publicly for the first time I wanted to say how sorry I am to hear about Sedona.  I heard it from someone but was asked to keep it quiet as I think it had just happened shortly before they told me.  I have been thinking of you as I know that pain all too well.  My wish for you is that one day you will be able to see past the pain to all of the wonderful memories you have.  Hugs

Sedona - and "The Call of the Wild"

Posted on May 22, 2013 at 9:49am 17 Comments

For years, Jack London’s Call of the Wild was one of my district’s required novels at the seventh grade level. So for years, the story was an important part of the curriculum in my seventh grade language arts class (special education – we read an abridged/adapted version). I know the story well, but in case you don’t, here’s what I need you to know about the plot in order for my blog to make sense:…

Next month I’ll be turning 59 – my that sounds OLD!  More importantly, my 59th birthday will mark the 20th anniversary of my thyroid surgery.  The week before my birthday, AT MY ROUTINE OB / GYN VISIT, my doctor found a thyroid lump.  Even though he assured me that most thyroid lumps are benign, he sent me to a surgeon for a biopsy.  The results came back “inconclusive”, so we decided to do the prudent thing and remove it.  Thank God we did as the post-operative…
