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

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!

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…

Doodle Days Comics

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…

Grooming Disaster/SUCCESS

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.…

Find a Penny, Pick it Up!


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…

Happy New Year!

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!

I Forgot Something!

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…

Evil Christmas Lights

The other day I opened a cardboard box that came in the mail. The noise scared Penny. She's really getting weird lately. When I took the makeup mirror out of the box, it became her worst enemy and she barked at it something fierce. I was holding it in my hand and it freaked her out.

That's nothing compared to the Christmas lights. We bought one of those red/green laser light contraptions that put spots on your house. We stuck the thing in our yard and well, Penny didn't take too… Continue

the doodles scared a possom "to death"

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…

Christmas Trees

Hi all, I tried searching past posts and couldn't find anything so I'll apologize if this is a repeat.
Does any one have any tips or tricks to keep pups away from the Christmas tree? I'm not worried about the ornaments as much as the actual tree. My Tucker is still teething so he likes to nip at almost everything.
Any help would be appreciated.

Our First (and Last) Puppy from a Breeder

My husband and I have had shelter dogs all our lives but this time around, we decided to give ourselves the "gift" of a lovingly raised 8-week old puppy.  We decided to purchase an 8-week old F1 mini Aussiedoodle pup from a breeder. Although our puppy is wonderful, we had a terrible experience with the breeder in spite of doing extensive research beforehand. We'll never purchase from a breeder again.  More about that later...  

I'll start by saying we have had our puppy, Dash, for…

How to choose Dog Beds

There are thousands of pet stores online and various kinds of crazysales dog beds for sale in the market. You may be overwhelmed by those options out there. According to my experience, the most concerned issues on the dog beds are quality and duration.


Which kind to choose

Generally, there are three popular dog beds you can easily find: orthopedic dog beds, heated dog beds, and dog cots. Orthopedic…

Why, Vern, Why?

Yesterday was a rainy day.  I love rainy days except for the fact that Vern still thinks we need to keep to his schedule and walk him twice a day.  Fudge is happy to sleep the day away, but not Vern.  So, last night the weather seemed to clear a bit and I suggested a walk at a county park a car ride away and off we went.  The closer we drove to our destination the darker the skies were getting, but I was determined to give Vern that walk.  I learned long ago if Vern doesn’t get his nightly…

Happy Gotcha Day, Ludo!

I'm not sure if non-rescued dogs technically get Gotcha Days, but to be honest, I feel really sentimental looking back at our year together, so I wanted to celebrate Ludo's Gotcha Day.

I documented much of his puppyhood here, but it truly feels like every day, we grow closer and I love him more…
