Annabelle is 3.5 years old and a mini f1b goldendoodle. I just had her teeth cleaned. They said she has wonderful strong teeth that are well taken care of. They did some x-rays on her and she is…Continue
"Annabelle was quite the chewer the first 18 months or so of her life. Even now at almost 4, she will get in a chewing mood. We like the West Paw toys. Her favorites are Hurley the bone and the zisc, that looks like a frizbee. They both have stood up…"
"I'm still seeing posts of dogs lost on July 4th that haven't been found yet. Some of them must have jumped the fence. Years ago when my kids were still young, the neighbor behind me's dog tried to escape by jumping the fence that was…"
"All relatives live out of state except for one daughter. Her husband is allergic to Annie, even though she doesn't shed. Plus when we take big family vacations, daughter is going with us anyway. I have not made any close friends here in my…"
"When we boarded Annabelle, she didn't eat or poop. She was a mess when we picked her up. We finally got her to eat and she pooped all the way home and all the next day. I took her to the vet to make sure she was ok from 5 days of not going. It…"
"So sad We get a lot of grief from family because we now bring Annabelle with us when we travel. Hotels and everything is planned around her. She was so stressed out when we boarded her a couple of years ago, we will never do it again. Then 3 months…"
"I'm out in the country and my neighbors fireworks look almost professional grade, but don't go as high, but are just as loud. They are very pretty, but they do tend to fall in my backyard. It is scary, so I try to stay indoors. I wonder if…"
"Poor little Annabelle last night. She was so stressed, like a caged animal trying to escape. Our neighbors set off the huge loud bombs. I took her out to do her business before bed last night, and she wanted no part of it. She loves her backyard…"
"Sadly a lot of re-homed or rescue dogs are going to come with behavior and health issues. I adopted a 18 month Golden Retriever a long time ago. He had been abused and was afraid of men and was scared to death of storms. It took a lot of love and…"
"My girl will do this in the evening once in awhile if she is still hungry. Giving her some kibble with a little yogurt, seems to do the trick. She is not a big eater and sometimes it catches up with her in the evening."
"I was surprised when I went to Kauai a few years ago. They have feral everything. Feral chickens, feral cats and feral pigs. The chickens and the cats are sure annoying and the cats are mean they may be little and cute to look at but they are mean,…"
"I always thought they were checked by a vet and put on any needed meds before placing them with a foster. But I guess if there is no brick and mortar shelter to place them during that time, they would have to go directly to foster. Those things…"
I saw your comment about getting a second doodle. We Yogi's sister(same parents) , when he was 10 months old. I am so happy we did. They love each other and are perfectly matched. Yogi was still a puppy himself so they have had great fun! Good luck!
I can see why it was love at first sight. There is a Midwest group too. She is a sweetie for sure.

I love her flea comb. It is great for removing the leaves and other debris she gets into. It is also small enough to groom her face.
Some cheap hippo toy I picked up at Meijer, It has withstood all of her chewing and playing where as the more expensive toys designed for the tough chewers have all fallen apart.
