I keep seeing pictures of DK-ers' two doodles snuggling and it's just breaking my heart since my two never snuggled together. Then I tried to rationalized with the fact that most of the snuggling…Continue
Finally it worked out and Monty got to meet his real brother Rufus for the first time. Rufus lives on the "the other side of the mountains" so we have not had a chance to get together before.Did the…Continue
I had my first teary moment since we started hospital visits with Monty last October. We went in with Monty as scheduled last Sunday and after I checked in on our floor a nurse hands me an envelope…Continue
When we bought our house in 2009, we did not have a dog on our minds. We live in the north suburbs of Denver so all the city houses have really small backyards, which was not an issue for us. We…Continue

Auggie still loves to terrorize his older brother Monty and to destroy the backyard. But, he has grown into a very sweet puppy (you can tell this especially when he is separated from his brother). Being used…Continue
It has been two weeks since we brought Auggie home and I feel like I have not slept for two full years. I should have probably sent this as a private message to my DK friends in order not to incriminate myself, but who cares. I’m exhausted.
A while back we had a discussion about a TV show portraying dog owners willing to spend big bucks cloning their bellowed dogs.…Continue
