Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
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…Continue
It's National Puppy Day, so this morning I took some pics of my beautiful, goofy 6 month old australian labradoodle, Atticus. Recently, Atticus has decided that sleeping in the bathtub is preferable to his Orvis bed, or even my bed; he has figured out how to turn the shower knob with his mouth so it drips just a bit, and I find him in the bathtub, sleeping on his back, feet in the air with his head positioned so that is mouth is directly under the "dripping faucet." I tried to get a…Continue
Yesterday we lost our beloved Tucker to Bladder Cancer. It was the hardest decision we had to make to let him go. We took our other dog, Molokia so that he can have closure as we needed to be with him when he took his last breath.
We will remember the ten years we had with him as he brought so much joy to our home and had us laughing at the funny things he did. Our dog Molokia is so lost and I hope that we can both heal in time
To say Finnegan is a Velcro doodle would be an understatement. He is always at my feet or I am within his line of sight. Others, who aren't owned by a doodle, may find it a little strange that we go around the house as if there was an invisible tether between us but I’ve adjusted to the extra appendage. It’s not that he’s timid or scared. He's loyal to a fault and believes this is the natural order of things. And, once a doodle gets something in his head, it’s darn hard to change it. You…Continue
My sister's Toy Poodle Java crossed over the Rainbow Bridge last night at the age of 17+. Rest in peace sweet Java.
Our beautiful, sweet Scooby died very suddenly on February 15th. We are heartbroken and devastated. Our house is so lonely. We would love to bring another doodle into our home as a companion to Bella. If anyone knows of a doodle in the Pittsburgh area who needs rehomed, please let me know. I know we will be able to give this dog the best home possible.
The good news is that all ten of this group of dogs we just rescued from the the Korean dog meat market arrived healthy and in good shape. These are three of the five kennels we received...
The bad news is that we are fostering seven of these dogs and there is a leak in the propane pipe from our propane gas tank to the house. That means our water heater is not working - so…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
For those sweet souls who have followed my Facebook page, I wanted to let you know that I deleted my account there. It became a sad, name-calling place where I found great unhappiness.
I love my hobby of making Doodle Days (I have no money making mechanism), so I will continue to make them even if I don't get to share them with many people. I have had a blog on Word Press for several years that I only updated occasionally, but will put any new content there if you care to see…Continue
So, after the groomer shaved Cooper so that he was miserable(itching) - my husband & I decided that we would give it a try ourselves. Turns out, Cooper was awesome! We felt SO bad for our boy when we picked him up - I almost cried. The groomer said he was matted - which I dispute because I was meticulous when I brushed him, always making sure I could get to skin. I think, since it was her last before Christmas Eve, that she just wanted to get out early.…Continue
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…Continue

Hurray for the new year. I am enjoying my life with my Sam. We are in our second year together and in this year we will be leaving the snowy mountains during the month of February for the warm sand in Florida. I'm hoping to post on here more often because I love connecting with doodle families!
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…Continue
Please, please dont let the new Pres adopt a Goldendoodle.....
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…Continue
