Roo Reports from across the Rainbow Bridge

Roo here.  I have been very tired so haven't reported much lately.  The last I remember I was laying on the floor and my mom was petting my head -love that - well love any attention really.  I was very very sleepy.

When I woke up I felt great, like a young pup again, but smarter.  I can't find Mom or Dad or Tigger, but there are lots of other dogs and grass  and trees and smells.  Oh the smells.....  This must be a very big dog park.  No people though - weird. 

Here…

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…

Dean Myerow has a new blog called Findagoldendoodle.com

My name is Dean Myerow and I live in Fort Lauderdale with my two goldendoodles Otis (12 years old-large F1B) and Brady (an F1B mini doodle-6 months old). We chronicle some of their adventures at http://findagoldendoodle.com/. We also occasionally run charitable contests open to all dog owners with the proceeds going to a local charity. Also, we post interesting stories about goldendoodles in the media.  We are still in the building stage and would…

A Weekend Getaway!

We travel a lot and always take Myla.  Last weekend we decided to visit our brother and sister-in-law in Vancouver for three nights.  We have done this many times in the past.  They have an 18 year old cat, Tyrone, who tolerates Myla when we go to visit but usually hides.  Unfortunately Tyrone is  very ill with kidney issues and we decided that it was not the time to stress him out with a visit from Myla so we asked our son Steve (who is Myla's favourite person in the whole wide world) to…

Belle Wins Over an Inveterate Dog Disdainer

My mother has never enjoyed dogs.  She also has never understood why any sane person would want a canine companion.  Years ago when my then partner gave me an adorable puppy for Valentine's Day, my Mom's response was "are you going to keep her?"  (Actually the dog stayed around much longer than that partner.)  So I gave up long ago showing my Mom cute pictures, and telling her funny anecdotes, about the many wonderful dogs who have graced my life. 

Then Mom, who is 103, fell…

Hello, Sweet People

Belle Here - coming to you from the other side of the rainbow bridge.

Now that I'm settled in Doggie Heaven, I thought I'd spend some of my time advocating the rescue of blind dogs.  While this may be a bit off task for this site, I'm not off task.  I am a first generation Labradoodle.

My Facebook page is chocked full of tips on adapting to a blind dog - like me.  You can get to my page through the following link.…

HELP! Fireworks/Thunder

I am going to post this as a blog because  it's too long for a newsfeed

.  I have spoken to trainers who suggested a behaviorist but they are way to expensive ($700!) and there isn't even a guarantee. I have been grabbing DJ and telling him to go in his crate and he does and even though I never lock the door, when this happens and my husband is not home I do and he just lays in there fine and calm. I have to hold Bogey during fireworks and thunder and can't hold them both at the same…

Atticus is featured on the NYC Mayor's Office To Combat Domestic Violence website

So proud of my 9 month old Atticus who is in training to become a therapy dog that will provide support to the youngest victims/witnesses of domestic violence/violent crime.  This picture below is now on the NYC Mayor's Office To Combat Domestic Violence website and was taken on Monday, June 12, 2017 during a children's program I supervise at the justice center:

"Our friend Atticus is still a puppy, but that…

Reflections on a Blind Doodle

I want to add my thoughts to Belle's goodby post.  

The decision to put Belle down was one of the hardest in my 71 years on this earth.  Why?  Lots of reasons.  At 5 1./2 she was way short of her life expectancy.  Her first two years were with an owner who gave her up then in and out of shelters.  So her good life was limited to around three years.  The is not a lot.  There was a long shot she could make it with diagnosis and treatment.  But I would have had to leave her at the pet…

Fudge, The People Whisperer!

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…

Goodbye Lucy

We said goodbye to our Lucy yesterday.  She was 4.5 years old.  The house is so empty and quiet this morning.  No clicking of her paws to the floor, no whimper to go outside, no morning walk, no flipping of the dog bowl for breakfast.  But she is free of pain from her awful disease.  I am so heartbroken.

Goldendoodle puppy - 11 weeks - with Lip sore - ulcer

I hope you can help! I have a puppy that is on its way to come Sunday, but was told the vet found small sore (ulcer,) on its lip. They think its from play with other puppies, and have given her a shot of antibiotic. I'm reading that things can be much more serious then they are leading me to believe. Is this fairly common or should I be worried?

What does your Doodle do to amuse itself?

Picco likes to play hide the ball.  If we have our couch quilt on the floor (or even if I'm lying under it) he'll pick it up and cover up the ball then search for it. He'll play this game for about a half hour or so.  It's pretty amusing!

Pet Sitter vs. Vet Boarding

I have to travel for work, just moved to Tacoma WA and need to find a pet sitter.  There are several services available but I don't personally know anyone.  I prefer getting someone to stay in my home with my dogs or at least be with them several times a day, if not staying overnight.  Any suggestions in finding someone or if you think its safer to keep them at a vet that boards. 

Thanks for your thoughts!

Holly knows so many words...

Our six chickens live in their own little chicken yard st the corner of our property and the property of three neighbors.  The chicken yard has its own fence, so that there are actually two fences that any predator would have to cross before it could get in with the chickens.  There are low oak trees surrounding the chicken yard and we have two chicken coops, a canopy and a roofed over area to protect them from hawks.

Today they were making lots of noise.  Judy said, "Holly, what's…

Vern and the Contractors!

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…

Spring Time = Sloppy, wet weather

Well it's spring time here in Northern Ontario. To most people Spring time means warmer weather, fresh beginnings, sweet smell of fresh air. Well, to us it means rain, rain, wet snow, rain and more rain.  Most of our winter snow has melted, but we have just gotten a few inches of wet, sticky snow over night; it will melt by tomorrow as it is supposed to be fairly warm +13°C.  My issues with this weather is that Chloe will not go pee or poop in the backyard now that the snow is gone and the…
