What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
F1 standard male, "Jackdoodle" born 11-28-2004. 80 lbs, apricot, adopted from a shelter in January 2006 at 14 months old.
From the day I brought him home, he has never had an accident, never chewed or damaged anything, never taken food from the counter, never gone in the garbage, never bothered the cat. He is absolutely phenomenal with children...a stroller coming down the street gets his tail going in circles. He sheds like crazy, and has lots of medical & psychological issues, but he is an exceptionally good boy.

My darling boy went to the Bridge on November 18, 2017, 10 days short of his 13th birthday. He will live in my heart forever.

Rest in Peace Dinah 3/17/94 - 8/5/11
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I really did not choose, or particularly want, a doodle. But when I saw him at the shelter, I just couldn't leave him in that cage! He looked so sad.
Really cute, really sweet, he needed me and I needed him.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?

Sheila's Birthday Poem for Jackdoodle 11-28-12

Today is the birthday of good ole' Jackdoodle.

He's such a handsome guy cause he's mixed with a poodle.

With his big brown eyes, and his cold wet nose,

his messy kind of hair, it all really goes.

He has a wiggley butt when he's a wagging that tail,

puts a smile on Karen's face every time without fail.

So on this special day, a day that's all your own,

hope your tail is a spinning and mom treats you with a bone.

Happy Birthday Jackdoodle !

HUGS !! Finnley and Sheila

Sheila's poem for JD's 10th Birthday 11-28-14
Today Jack Doodle is turning 10, 

A decade to count upon, then we'll start all over again .

His big wet nose, and his long golden hair,

he's a kind, and gentle doodle, with nary a care.

Ten years of ball chasing, and long happy walks.

Only the best kibble to eat, but Jack never balks

So many cuddles, and snuggles too,with his mom, her name is Karen

she loves him through and through.

So raise a biscuit high, as we salute our good friend Jack.

The epitome of doodleness, a number one class act !

My inbox is broken and I would love to pick your brain about a doodle in a shelter near me - and the possibility of fostering him. Can I email you? Thanks!

Wondering if anyone has been contacted directly by "Mr. James". He asked me to email him bc it was difficult for him to express himself on a public site. Hoping I don't have to take my profile down. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Love reading all the helpful info.

Not sure if you remember me but it's been years since I've logged on (I took a massive social media break). Anyway, I was thinking about you and wanted to say I hope you're doing well. You were always so helpful to me when I first got Goldie and you've stuck with me:)

Bummer. Wishing you luck in finding something compatible for him soon. Olive's paw seems better today already, thanks! She has stopped limping and it looks less red and raw where the vet shaved her, unnecessarily.

Hi Karen !

My friend karma told me to connect with u! I have been having challenges with my dood . Found out just a few months ago that he has ibs. :( do you know a lot about this disease? Oliver is currently taking metrozidazal (antibiotic) which I guess helps ibs and also if he picked up bacteria or a parasite it is suppose to address that. Two days ago poor boy pooped with mucus on his stools and then later the same day he just pooped mucus :/ I was like ahh this isn't good... so called the doc and vet said try this med for three days and see how he does. So yesterday started him on turkey burger and rice three times a day and the meds and the. Today going to keep doing it. He hasn't went poop today :/ and seems like his nose is a bit warm but still wet. He has energy .. ahhh I get nervous bc last summer he was really sick and it was a scare. He lost 15pounds in two weeks time and had vomiting and direah ... did lots of tests and nothing showed up.. just white blood count was a bit low. After doing everything we fed him turkey and rice for over a week and finally turned around plus changed his dog food to acana highlands ranch blend that's beef and pork and seemed the to do fine... sooooo who knows now what he picked up .. I know he had horse poop last week and I took him to cherry creek .. so he could have ghiarda

Ugh! Frustrating! I'm not going to rewrite all that! Lol. On the recommended food list - do the brands start out as the best at the top and go down from there in quality?
