"Hi Jess! I work at the University of Penn and a lot of my colleagues live in the area. I live in the 'burbs' about 5 miles out of the city. I know there are dog parks within walking distance. Here is the…"
"When my two boys come home from college and all of their friends come over Riley acts exactly like one of them!!! I have worked for 24 months to teach Riley NOT to jump on people, something he has always loved to do. And in one day while I was…"

In conversation with other DK members I have found that there are a lot of fun links out there to get bling, countdown calendars, backgrounds and other fun stuff to build "My Page" with. I think it would be fun if other members shared their secrets!See More
I am a mom with 3 "almost" grown kids and 1 nowhere near grown doodle named Riley! Riley is a 16 month old doodle and like his first human mom said, "Be careful! They are like Cheese Doodle, can't have just one!" So far, only one!!! He is a big, goofy love-bug!
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We decided when my two oldest boys left the nest and went off to college we would replace their foolishness with a new puppy. As it was just going to be "us girls" we wanted another body in the house, a companion for when one of us was alone, and another member of the family when the boys returned to the nest. Riley has fit the order to a T!!! He keeps us on our toes, makes us laugh, and loves us without question!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Walk, hike, car rides, and SHOP!!! He loves Pet Smart! He hangs out with the college boys and their friends when they're home, he goes to the high school every morning when I drop the grils off, expects to stop at Dunkin' Donuts to visit everyone in the parking lot. He thinks a good day is a trip to the drive-thru beer store, the drive thru bank and the drive-thru convenience store. This is a good errand day - they all gove doggie treats - and he knows it!!!
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I have been having quite a time finding a qualified groomer for doodle in my area. We have had more than one grooming issue. Hopefull it will be resolved with a new groomer that has come highly recommended!
Welcome to DK! Bernie loves to shop too! That's so funny. He thinks Saturday errands are just for him and he gets so many treats walking through our little village, hanging outside the coffee shop is his favorite. Enjoy the site!
