Retiring from the puppy raising business

Hi all--those of you who have been friends since the beginning o Doodle Kisses may remember that I have been raising pups for a reputable breeder since 2011--I started just 6 months after retiring from teaching high school Biology for 34 years with my labradoodle Lyric's litters and then expanding to other females, including Lyric's daughter's three litters--It has been a lot of fun and I have loved the pups and enjoyed keeping in touch with all the new owners....after raising 16 litters,…

February Calendar Doods

I have to share this. I love my Doodle Kisses calendars, year after year.  This year, when I turned to February, it was like looking at my two boys. Barney and Sundog are so much like Colby and Derek -- even down to the collar colors.

Tigger Tells the Truth

(Editor's note: Richard is our son, Peishan his wife, Blue a nd Ice are their Siberians Huskies.)

Well Roo  has not come home.  We left the vet's, Roo wasn't in car, or at home, at Richard's at Heather's or at the vet's.  Roo left his fur there though.  Mom said he crossed the Rainbow bridge.  Why didn't he take me?  I love to go new places.  I don't really understand, but it is good I was here because Mom and Dad needed me to lick their tears (nice and salty, sort of like…

Saying Goodbye to Our Beloved Dood

Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our sweet, precious pup. So sudden- at 11 years and 5 months old. Loving and beloved, happy boy. Sat night one minute he was playing and the next he stood in a catatonic state, hardly could respond to commands or know where his water bowl was. He recovered a bit on Sunday, more so on Monday where he saw a vet. The only symptom was tenderness around his stomach which led to xrays and the eventual and telling ultrasound yesterday. Doodlie had Hemangiosarcoma.…

Sweet Potato Treats

We have a food dehydrator and I am using it to prepare healthy and safe chewies for the dogs.  My first try was sweet potato chewies.  I sliced sweet potatoes about a quarter inch thick and dried them in the dehydrator.  The dogs absolutely love these treats.

I have some tuna in my freezer that I caught on fishing trip.  I will slice that and make tuna jerky for the dogs.  I also plan to make chicken jerky and to dry green beans as treats....

Preparing treats at home is a lot…

Why Do We Do It? (In Memoriam)

Yesterday, I was talking to my sister on the phone while I was walking my dogs. In my case, there should be a law No talking, while walking because my dogs are able to sense that my attention is elsewhere and usually act out. Vern takes every opportunity to go right, when I go left and Fudge ups her hunting skills to expert level. At some point in our conversation, I told my sister I had to go because I needed both hands free and I told her to remind me that I was…
