Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a retired biology teacher with three grown kids and a hubby who retired from teaching several years ago. I have always had dogs, but Mattie was my first doodle. She's great! She is a certified therapy dog and we are enjoying her company every day. I added Lyric a year later and she also passed her therapy dog test but she is totally different from Mattie and lots of fun. She has had a bunch of wonderful pups for the breeder I got her from (she is in a guardian home with me which means we have a contract for Lyric to have some pups). Mattie is 6 and Lyric is 5. I kept one of Lyric's puppies, Rio, a black and white partidood who was 2 in January of 2013--so I have three LDs now-and that will have to be it! My husband will not be happy if I add any more!
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
My FIRST doodle is a medium labradoodle--her dad was an apricot mini-poodle and her mother was a red lab. She weighs 35 pounds, has deep red wavy hair with deep brown eyes and a rose nose and does not shed much at all. I got her from Tango Wool labradoodles--I have met many of the doodles from Tango Wool's litters and they are all great! I also have an apricot australian labradoodle named Lyric--much bigger than Mattie, but that's OK since Mattie loves to play with bigger dogs. Lyric's puppy, Rio, born 1/1/11 is a black and white parti and adorable! We just couldn't give him up--so now we are a three doodle family!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I wanted a non-shedder with a lab disposition--now I know that many doodles do shed--i have a non-shedder, a low shedder and a medium shedder!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Walks in the woods and kayaking with the doodles --- I also like to just hang out with the doodles on the couch at the end of a long day...they are happy to just play together as long as I am nearby--three velcro dogs!
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
me
Favorite Doodle Products?
Les pooches brush, "The stuff"
Relationship Status:

Hey! Yeah!! My pup is from Mountain Park Labradoodles. The mom is a mini named Honey that lives at Mt Park, and the dad is listed as Oliver who comes from Tango Wool Labradoodles! Small world indeed!

HI! Thank you for the information...I sent an inquiry email! :)

My husband actually wants a Labradoodle vs. a Golden...so we are open to either breed as long as it's the right fit!

Puppies are now five weeks old!

Posted on June 10, 2015 at 7:44am 11 Comments

I really wanted to take some cute outdoor shots today for the fifth week photos, but it rained on and off--so I got them outside briefly for head shots and some play--of course, the grass was wet and they were a mess quickly, but still cute!

I am using a new litter box system with these pups--I use a kitty litter called Yesterday's news and I sprinkle it on puppy pads (a large area of them) for the first few weeks after their eyes open--when they are using the pads consistently, I…

Puppy portraits at four weeks old

Posted on June 2, 2015 at 10:27am 9 Comments

Getting cuter by the day! Momma dog is still so great with them and now gets into the playing--so gentle with them and they love it!

These are their four week portraits, starting with the 6 girls...but the breeder requested one more hat photo, so I will start with that one--too cute!…

Here we go again! Puppies in hats!!

Posted on May 26, 2015 at 6:29am 20 Comments

It's that time again! For those of you who followed my puppy blogs in the past, I always put hats on my pups when they reach the three week old mark--these hats are from elaborate clothing you can get for a toy called a Muffy bear. So, yesterday was the day! And here are the results! (One puppy is missing--his photos were blurry and need a do over!) 

(More to come in the comments section--somehow, I am always limited to a certain number of pictures...)…

Raising another litter....of 11!!

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 6:46am 15 Comments

Yes, I did say 11! Momma had an easy time and all went well--signs of labor started on May 1st, but she was due on May 6th and we managed to keep them all in there until the 5th--all were large, vigorous and active pups! 6 girls, 5 boys...8 blacks, two chocolates and one apricot!

Momma Gliss was very tired by the end of the four hours of whelping, but after a nap she was up and trotting around the yard--she is an athletic active girl who has been a terrific momma! She has finally…

YES, I am crazy...14 dogs in the house!!!

Posted on December 19, 2014 at 7:02pm 13 Comments

OK--so you all know that I am crazy--doodle crazy that is---and now I am proving it. I agreed to take a litter from the breeder that I work for for their last two weeks--and their momma too of course--and it is a litter of TEN!!! We had two litters of ten in November--very weird! So, the poor woman needed some help!

These are all black beauties from an F1 mom and a mini-poodle dad...what a chaotic Christmas we shall have! The families all come to meet them this weekend and then on…
