Yes, her ears are still apricot, unless I trim the hair too short like I did last week. But she looks cute and it grows back so quickly. She was only 19 pds between 8 to 13 mos. then all of a sudden grew some more, packing on 5 pounds. If I've measured her right she is 15" tall and around 24 pds. I agree with you they are the perfect size. She also has a coarser stripe down the center of her back, some of them are very dark apricot. I was born and raised in S.D. lived in Pacific Beach, Clairemont and later in Scripps Ranch. I attended Clairemont H.S. My husband really misses it there. We haven't been back for a visit in 4 or 5 years now. My family has mainly moved from the area, one sister is in Fallbrook, which isn't too far and we have a lot of family in Huntington Bch, so we visit there a lot. Do you take Ned to any beaches? Are there some dog beaches there? My dog loves pools, ponds (not baths though, ha) loves to swim, she'd probably be funny at the beach, I wonder if she would be afraid of the waves. Well at least until she got used to them! Sometimes she's a little chicken! Her sister is slightly larger and weights around 30 pounds, her name is Ginger. I love how you have decorated your personal page, I'm going to have to learn how to do that. Ned is just precious, what a cutie!
Ned is 27 pounds and 17" tall. He has been the same since about 8 - 9 months. I think he will get a bit heavier as he ages (don't we all ) but at almost 2 it may be a few more years. I really like the size he and Mango are. Very manageable for us, yet big enough to be substantial.
Ned had darker apricot ears as a pup and lost that and has recently lightened up all over, but the adult coarser coat down his back is darker. Have Mango's ears stayed darker like in her birthday picture?
Your doodle will love kayaking! It's much easier going down stream though:o) I took Murphy to a lake the first time so he could get in and out if he wanted to. Definitely do the life jacket thing, even though Murph is a good swimmer if he took off after a duck or something he could swim till exhaustion.
Hi Deanna! Glad you joined the DFW group. We live near Keller and also have a mini doodle. She is 19 weeks and about 15 lbs. I have been looking for a groomer for Sunnie. Does KK do a good job on doodle coats? We are about due for her first cut!
