Recent Doodle Clown Sightings!

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

Long Day's Journey Into Night-Or How to Travel with Dogs and a Toddler!

Posted on February 13, 2017 at 8:30am 23 Comments

I haven’t had very many superwoman moments in my life.  I haven’t rescued anyone from a burning building, saved kittens up a tree, pushed anyone out of the path of a moving vehicle, but I did just travel over 700 miles with two dogs and a toddler.  And I did it all alone. I think that qualifies me for some title, although it may just be Stupid Woman

 

I was more than a little perturbed at my husband that I had to go it alone.  He had work obligations, he said.  How…

My Mom Won't Be Stealing Vern's Chair Any Longer!

Posted on February 5, 2017 at 5:00pm 49 Comments

I have probably written hundreds of blogs for DK and several of them have been about my mom.  Some of you have followed my mom on her journey to get to a Neil Diamond concert, her stealing a chair right out from under Vern, her reading of romance novels, the day she had to go on Viagra for her heart, her obsession with drinking coffee, and one or two hospital stays.  I know my mom has nothing to do with Doodles, but she always provided me with excellent material and it was fun to share it…

Find a Penny, Pick it Up!

Posted on January 14, 2017 at 3:00am 17 Comments

 

The other day I took the dogs to the park and when I got out of the car, I spotted a penny on the ground, heads up.  Reciting the line, “Find a penny, pick it up, all day long, you’ll have good luck,” I bent over and retrieved the penny.  I can now say, speaking from experience, that a lucky penny does not really hold all that much luck and any luck it gives you must run out pretty quickly.

 

I have been playing musical beds in my house…

I Forgot Something!

Posted on December 11, 2016 at 6:37am 28 Comments

It happened again yesterday.  I forgot something.  The older I get the less I seem to remember.  I spend hours each week searching for my car keys, my phone, my purse, and my glasses.  And if I am truthful, I have even forgotten where I parked my car in a parking lot.  Sometimes, I wonder how I got anything done when I worked, but maybe it is because I now lose so much time just trying to find something.  It usually starts with my car keys.  I go to take the dogs for their walk and can’t…

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!

Oh he's so cute! I guess I will have to see what I end up with, his coat seems to be pretty wavey but who knows how big he will be! Thanks for the pictures!
