Do you ever wish for just one moment that you didn't have dogs? I mean, I love the dogs like they're my kids. I wouldn't be able to survive life without dogs. Because of that I think sometimes I…Continue

Sorry, I just copied and pasted the text below from the facebook post I saw. This sort of thing makes me so sad. Just the idea of supporting a breeder who would do something like this makes me feel…Continue

Ava at the dentist part 2 - the good news!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie Jun 8. 7 Replies

Ava was scheduled for the surgery today to remove a 1cm margin around where her tumor was. And I've been a huge ball of nerves for weeks in anticipation. The dentist assured me that it was pretty…Continue

Ava and the pathology report

It wasn't what I was hoping for, which was for it to be nothing. And I'm kind of freaking out, but he is telling me that it should be curative with surgery and a 1cm margin. It's an extramedullary…Continue

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
