Introducing Maggie!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stacy on Wednesday. 33 Replies

I know it's really soon since Ava died, but there was a huge hole in my heart and my life that needed to be filled. And I believe that sometimes things are just meant to be, and this is one of them.…Continue

This is one of those things where I don’t necessarily need advice on the actual behavior, (though I’m open to anything) but I'm more interested in my own mindset and if other people have experienced…Continue

What do your dogs know?

I was just sitting here and my eyes were itchy. I reached into the drawer and pulled out some eye drops and put them in. Katie just sat there and watched me. She didn't even try to help! Then I threw…Continue

Natures Variety/Fromm/Something else?

I'm trying to do this analysis myself, but math makes my brain hurt. Maggie is currently eating Natures Variety Raw Instinct (beef) at 508 kcal/cup. She could stand to gain a couple pounds so her foster parents were feeding her 4 cups/day. She won't eat quite that much for me, but it's probably upwards of 3 cups/day. 4 cups would be 2032 calories/day. Katie is eating from the Fromm 4 Star line which has 395 kcal/cup. To get the same number of calories Maggie would have to eat upwards of 5…See More

the doodles scared a possom "to death"

Posted on November 28, 2016 at 5:42pm 15 Comments

I swear I do not live in the country! I live in a suburb very near the center of my town. It’s not a huge town, but it’s definitely not the country! And it’s far more developed than the subdivision I moved from a year ago – maybe that’s the problem. There was more room for the wildlife to be out in the woods. But I have seen more possums in the yard since I moved here than ever before – in fact I’m sure that I never got up close and personal with one until we moved here.  But the dogs and I…

Stacy, your Doodles are beautiful! I also have my puppy's mother. Daphne was my first Doodle and a year later, Lucy was retired from breeding and needed a forever home. We just love her to pieces!

Hi!  I saw your comment on buying bras in bulk!  lol

I am no expert, but look at how you react to the 'thief' when you find her.  What worked for us, was correcting our pup as soon as possible, with a 'NO' and putting an appropriate toy in his mouth.  We worked on the command 'drop it' as soon as possible too.  They are curious little pups, and they love a good game of chase.  It could be she just enjoys your attention when you find your bras.  We used to have a parrot, and we learned that negative attention is just as good as positive attention. 

it sounds like she might test you on EVERYTHING in the house. And as they grow, they find more interesting things, but most of all, just want your entire focus, and will do things just to get your attention!!  teaching independent appropriate playtime is a chore, but well worth it.  being consistent is the key to success!!  hope it gets better
