Recent Doodle Clown Sightings!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Donna K & Quincy Oct 12, 2016. 46 Replies

I am not making light of the recent scary clown sightings, because I would not be happy to see Bozo standing in the woods behind our house, but after my dog's recent grooming, I am seeing two clowns…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a 52 year old homemaker. My girls are now 24 and 25 and my oldest tells me all the time I am a stay at home mom and then likes to add "wait a minute...your kids are full grown... you are just a stay at home." No wonder, I got a doodle. I used to work at an Assisted Living Retirement Facility in MD as an Assistant Activity Director. When we moved to PA, I stopped working there, but have continued to volunteer there one night a week. I do game night and it is a very interesting group. I bake them home made cookies and am smart enough to make them play the game before I serve the cookies.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
We have a Female Chocolate Labradoodle named Fudge. She was one year old on Christmas. We brought her home on Friday the 13th (3/13/09). After I saw Beyonce in concert, I announced Fudge's middle name was now Beyonce and my family wanted to get me committed :)

On 3/27/10 (born 1/10/10), we added Vernors (Vern) to our family. He is a cream colored Labradoodle. His official title is Vernors Macaroni.

We name all of our dogs some kind of food name and Vernors is after a Midwest Ginger Ale. (close enough)
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We have had Labs in the past and loved their temperament. This time around we wanted to start with a puppy and one that does not shed. It has been wonderful.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I love taking them to the dog park and out on the rail trail for walks. We also go to the tennis courts and play ball until they are tired. Both dogs ride along with me in the car while I do my errands.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major, Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Cathy's Canine Designs.
Favorite Doodle Products?
Bully sticks, Ty Bow Wow beanies, the stuffed animals with the beating heart inside (can not think of the name), jolly balls, and tennis balls.
Relationship Status:
Married

Felix Unger and Oscar Madison.....aka Fudge and Vern!

Yesterday, I mowed the yard and must have picked up some kind of prickers from a bush along the way.  I am not exactly sure what to call these dreaded little things that hurt to touch and stick to clothing, but I do know now that entering “prickers” on Google brings up all kinds of unrelated pictures. 

 

One of the few times my dogs opt to stay in the house when I am outside is when I mow the yard. Most things that I do I have two nosy dogs following right behind me to see what…

Fudge, The People Whisperer!

Posted on June 11, 2017 at 4:33am 17 Comments

Our daughter recently bought us a sign that said, “Grandparents, so easy to operate, even a child can do it.”  She is right.  Our grandson has up wrapped around his little fingers and can do no wrong in our book.  Unfortunately, we also need a sign that reads, “The people in this house are so easy to operate, even two dogs can do it.” 

 

We are having a couple of bathrooms renovated and having contractors in our house since the beginning of May has altered the way the dogs…

Vern and the Contractors!

Posted on May 8, 2017 at 4:00am 17 Comments

I love the show House Hunters on HGTV. It always amazes me when a young couple has a million dollar budget and million dollar demands. When we bought our first house, we walked in, took one look, and wrote a contract that day. I wasn’t worried about popcorn ceilings, en suites, or the color of the walls. Up until that point, we lived in a third floor apartment and I was tired of lugging two kids and laundry down to the basement to do a load of laundry in the…

Up at Night!!

Posted on April 7, 2017 at 4:30am 14 Comments

My two-year-old grandson has just decided that he doesn’t want to go to bed.  I have watched him on and off since birth and the fact that he took a beautiful nap and went to bed without fussing always sealed the deal for me when they asked me to watch him.  It meant Grandma could get a break in the afternoon and watch some television at night.  Well, one week before I was to show up to watch him again, they informed me that he doesn’t want to take a nap and has been climbing out of his crib…

Thanks for the warm welcome. Still very curious on how his coat will come in. Sheds a tiny bit but at only 11 weeks old I'm sure it's just the puppy coat.

I went to my gorocery store yesterday to find vernon's ginger ale and couldn't find any. :-(

Though its much belated (on my part), thank you, Fudge and Vern for wishing me a happy birthday. Too cute! And, Happy Belated Birthday to you, Laurie - from Zeus and me.

Happy Birthday (belatedly) Laurie!!!     Hope your day was as wonderful as you ARE!

See any similarities?

You and your mom are welcome.  My mom has gotten to a miserable stage also. I can't make "it" better (any of the "its") and all is negative.  Her favorite attention is having physical stuff so that I have to take her to the doctor, and that she can complain that the staff doesn't think her important enough to respond quick enough.   :-{

Thanks, Laurie, for the friend's invite! I feel like I know your dogs, personally, from all the blogs I've read and pics I've seen. And I've seen photos of you...love the one with the hula loop on the "Sound of Music set". :-)

Hi Laurie, You don't know me. I'm sort of new to the site and I'm a new Dood mommy.
I have read some of your blogs and they are SO funny! I wish I could write as well as you! I stayed up rather late last nite reading some of your stories. I laughed so hard, I nearly needed a wee-wee pad (as a friend of mine always says). You have a talent for writing, for sure! I also love the name "Fudge". I use that word a lot of times instead of "the other 4-letter word" (if you get my drift). :-) Your Doods are beautiful. Keep the stories coming! Thanks, Sally M.

LOVED your card!!!! Merry Christmas.

I love your Christmas card.  So funny that you can't see their eyes.  Great shot.  Merry Christmas!
