My husband Marc and I live in Madison, Mississippi. We don't have any two legged children, but we have one precious four legged daughter Rootie, our dachshund. We just brought home Wrigley, a standard Goldendoodle from our breeder Teri Fann at goldens-n-doodles.com in Tennessee. We are avid Mississippi State fans, and Rootie and Wrigley will be tailgating with us this fall.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Wrigley is our 7 month old Golden Doodle, and Rootie is our 6 year old Dachshund. I cannot tell you how much we love our girls! Wrigley is still in her puppy stage, but she's begun to be much more affectionate and cuddly lately which we LOVE!
Everything she does is so funny, we find ourselves laughing at her constantly.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We wanted a large breed dog but could not compromise on any certain breed until I read about the golden doodles online. The more research we did, the more we knew that this was the breed for us.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We love taking Wrigley for walks. She's a celebrity in our neighborhood and at our groomer. Any time that we can spend with our dogs is a pleasure.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Favorite Doodle Products?
I'm still searching for THE toy that Wrigley can't destroy. She's a master chewer!
Hey! It is a Mississippi State shirt. My son went there and I am a fan. Baxter just turned a year old and we love him. Your baby is precious. He is soooo white. Glad to know there are folks and doods from Mississippi.
Hi Jamie -- Saw that you were interested in joining the Holiday Card Exchange this year. I'm the "leader" for the first exchange group, Group A. There's been a lot of confusion about how to officially sign up, so if you're still interested in participating, here's the link to the first group so you can join: http://www.doodlekisses.com/group/holidaycardsA.
Mae "made a day of it" Tuesday at Diva Dog.
She had a few matted areas so Leslie had to cut her a little shorter than we wanted but she still looks great (the shape of her face, ears, and eyes look perfect (very "doodle not poodle")....we loved Leslie!!!!! Mae had a BLAST....she got to play in the back etc....We will defiantly go back....thanks so much for your help :-)
We are thinking about having Mae groomed at Diva Dog. Do they have more than one groomer? If so who grooms Wrigley?....she always looks so cute and "well groomed" in her pics :-)
Maes last haircut was too short....she looked more Poodle than Goldendoodle :-(
Would love any advice....THANKS!!!!
Jamie, Murphy is shedding more right now than he ever has. I don't know what's going on.
Maybe the snow in New Orleans ;) I got his coat trimmed thinking that it would help. It did, but not as much as I expected.
Hi Jamie, I don't get on DK much anymore, but I was just checking out some people I hadn't heard from in awhile. Look at Wrigley! She is beautiful. O.K. How big is she? She was so big as a pup I am guessing 85 lbs? Cimmy is bigger than what I think Teri thought she would get to, but not as big as some of her sisters from the previous litter. She is about 70 lbs. and will probably stop somewhere close to 75. She looks a lot bigger, because I haven't had her body trimmed, yet. I am waiting until summer, though I am told that she will be hot whether her coat is long or short. Because the hair is hollow, length doesn't make a difference for body heat.. She will just be hot. Interesting. I love your Christmas picture with your dogs. Adorable. Hope all is well with you all. Noticed you got some snow this winter. Yea! Take care. Betsy
