"Hi Sherri, I keep looking at Winston's happy face in this picture and while his utter cuteness makes me smile, it also makes my heart break for you. I don't really have anything substantive to add in terms of his condition, but I am sure…"
"I'm hoping that everyone in Florida survived the storm with minimal damage to their homes and property. We are in Naples, and don't yet know about our house, which is two miles from the coast. Thinking of you all . . ."
"I think that the flash helped to eliminate some of the shadows that darkened parts of the flowers' centers. And it was windy. I'm interested in knowing why the flash would be helpful in a windy situation in the sunlight."
"I rarely use my flash during the daylight hours and especially when the sun is shining directly on my subject, but that's exactly what I tried with these sunflower shots at the Trapp Family Lodge gardens up in Stowe, Vermont, this past…"
"Hi Lan, I have two Labradoodles who were active puppies, but not unbelievably so. Both were totally manageable. On the other hand, I have two good friends (two separate families) with Golden Retriever puppies (actually, they are both…"
"Any of the trackers that I have read about have a very limited range -- maybe 100 feet at the most. They advertise a much broader area, because others in their networks can search for your lost item (like a wallet) or even a pet. "
I'm in my early 50s and live in a Boston suburb with my husband and our labradoodles, Wally and Charlotte. I'm also the mom of two grown children. I worked as a writer and teacher before becoming lucky enough to retire early. I spend my time with my husband, friends, family, and my furry buddies. I also enjoy cooking, photography, knitting, reading and walking - we take a couple of good walks each day. That's me in a nutshell. Oh, and we're in Cape Cod during the summer and Naples, Florida, for the winter.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Wally is an Australian Labradoodle from Tegan Park in Florida. His birthday is May 21, 2006. His parents are Zimba and Paige. He is extremely friendly and loves everybody and every animal he meets! Charlotte is also an Australian Labradoodle, and is from Heartsong Labradoodles in Kentucky. She was born on June 7, 2012. Her parents are Mattie and Cole. So far, at 11 weeks of age, she's a dream and we love her to pieces! And equally important is that Wally likes her, too.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We enjoy going for long walks with friends, and spending time outside. Wally LOVES to play football in our backyard. We also enjoy hiking in the town forest and going to Elm Bank and the Weston Reservoir. Wally really likes to go swimming, especially at Crystal Lake in Orleans on the Cape. When Charlotte is a bit older, I hope to get her out in the world, just like her big brother.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I do regular brushing, and they go to the groomer every 6-8 weeks.
Do you have a website of your own? If so, share it here:
Glad to share my breeder's name. She is wonderful and my Groucho Too was also from her kennel. He passed over the bridge in 2014 and I have been working with her since them to get the puppy of my dreams - hence my Sheepadoodle that I pick up in 10 days. Her name is Sharon Merriman and her kennel is Designer Doodles in Deer Park, Washington (near Spokane). She may have a few more pups available right now if you are in the market. Tell her I recommended her to you. The telephone number is (509)276-2703.
Your Aussie Doods are simply gorgeous...and they look so incredibly sweet. Lucky you! HA! and of course, lucky them. Cute cute cute. A couple of my friends just got aussie's so I will get first hand info on how they fall in love with their babies.

Haha...yes. We get SPAMMERS now and then. If only these spammers would get a feel for their audience they'd realize most of us ARE women and would prefer to see a doodle in a bikini than them ;-) I ban these new members as soon as I see them or someone reports them. If you click on their photos all that will happen is you'll be taken to their DK profile page...
