Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Worth watching for a smile and to brighten a day.

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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
I'm going to be sending in photos of our 3 Labradoodles. I hope everyone enjoys and be sure to send you pictures also.
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…Continue
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.…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
