I hate fireworks. I am not going to beat around the bush and start by saying I only hate some fireworks, maybe just the loud boom ones. No, I hate them all. As a kid I used to watch them and later when I had kids, we would drive somewhere in horrible traffic so we could watch an hour’s worth of flashes only to have to try and get back home before dawn in the bumper to bumper traffic. It was never my favorite experience and knowing me, I probably offered bribes to my children to make it more…Continue
I'll start by saying that Belle, who turned 3 in June, has never had a problem with the booming noises (thunder, fireworks, even guns) that periodically plague our neighborhood. She first came home in August, so by her first 4th of July here, she was already a year old. I had been reading Doggy Dan's training advice, and convinced a number of (somewhat dubious) dog-owning friends to gather with us and their puppies in a large living room supplied with lots of antlers, Himalayan chews,…Continue
NOT REALLY FOR HER BIRTHDAY The purchase just happened to coincide closely to her birthday...
AND I REALLY DIDN'T BUY IT FOR HER Although she will benefit from the purchase...
All of our floors are ceramic tile - our rescue dogs are not always house trained so dog proof floors are pretty necessary. We want our home spiffy clean despite our dogs...
We use a Hoover…
The Northern Virginia doodle group was formed some time ago, and many of the dogs are now 14-15 years old. Some may have gone to Rainbow Bridge. There has been no activity in the group so I am reaching out to our newer members in case they are from Northwen Virginia area and asking them to please join the group so we can the use it to stay in touch and not interrupt the whole Doodlekisses.
I am hoping to find some support from another doodle owner to ease me into grooming…Continue

This past Friday we said goodbye to our beautiful Luna after a 2 month battle with Lymphoma.
We are heartbroken but we knew it was time to let her go. Since Thursday morning she had been unable to keep food/water down and she was listless, restless and very sleepy. In the last few weeks her tumors made a "comeback" and overwhelmed the Prednisone she had been taking to buy us a little more time with her. We are so thankful that we had these last few months to enjoy her and…Continue
With sad heartbreaking news our sweet beautiful intelligent silly best friend passed away from bloat 2 months shy of her 11th birthday. She was the love of our life and moving on has been so hard. I haven't posted in years on DK and just now have figured out how to get back to posting. I did inform some of the people I know here through Facebook. Graciedoodle was in the best of health, perfect athletic weight and very agile. We have known about bloat since the day we brought her home so…Continue
So 2 puppies are definitely A LOT more work than 1 puppy, but so far we are still very happy we decided to get 2.
How did this happen?
I'll start at the beginning With Cheyenne (dachshund) and Dakota (Golden doodle).
Just over 13 years ago we decided we wanted a dog. Being that we were getting married in a few months (and had an 11 month old) we tried to compromise on a breed. I wanted a small dog (smaller poo!) and hubby wanted a golden doodle. We compromised and got a dachshund and a golden doodle. We got Cheyenne (dachshund) Friday evening and Dakota (golden doodle on Sat morning). …Continue
I recently got a Wisdom Panel done on Orwell because I've always been suspicious that he has something else in him other than lab and poodle. As I suspected, Orwell's mother is not a pure lab and poodle cross.
So, Orwell is 12.5% a mix of something. They couldn't pinpoint the…Continue
Maggie’s a different dog than any I’ve known before. It’s been 9 weeks that she’s been here, and we coexist peacefully. She’s doing perfectly on her potty training when I’m home. Going to work is still a major work in progress, and I haven’t found the perfect solution, but we’re working on it.
She’s still not very affectionate. Everyone has an opinion, and I think that the truth lies somewhere within all the wisdom I’ve received. She went to see the groomer last week and she did…Continue
Here's Chewy in his first video with a guest appearance by Mojo.
Tomorrow Winston turns 1 and has to go in for his Barium swallow. Please pray that we get some answers! Thank you.
Hey Guys! I'm not sure if anybody has heard of the Pickler and Ben talk show, but Charlie and his doodle friends (@thatdoodsquad on instagram) were invited to be guests on the show! What an amazing experience! We filmed the show last week and it should be airing within the next couple of weeks (i'll definitely update this post when I find out the date)!!
Seven of us girlfriends started getting together because of our doodles, and one of the doodle moms is a photographer. We…Continue
We recently welcomed a new addition, his name is Chewbacca (Chewy). He's a F1B medium Goldendoodle. He joins our female Mojo who is a F1 standard Goldendoodle. We also had Sebastian, who was Mojo's littermate, but he passed away on 1/26 due to osteosarcoma. His spirit still lives on.
Chewy came on Friday 2/23. Yesterday was his first day home alone with just Mojo. It didn't go well as Mojo was in another room so Chewy felt alone and howled for most of the day,…Continue
We lost our 3 year old goldendoodle Zola due to Epilepsy. She was such an amazing puppy and brought us so much joy. She loved toys, the dog park and her 5 year old sister Luna. Our house feels so empty and our hearts are shattered. …Continue
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,…Continue
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.
Has anyone done a DNA on their doodle. I did it from a company called.....DNAffirm--viaguard. Now my doodle is supposed to be 50 golden retriever(AKC registered) and Standard Poodle (AKC registered and a 2 time grand champion. The dad was the poodle.
What a shock when I got the report back.....Not that I want to do anything about it cause I love Turbo the way he is. But the report came back 50 Labrador---25 Poodle---25 Chesapeake Bay Retriever . The one parent is the Labrador the…Continue
