Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
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
(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…Continue
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.…Continue
Ferguson's First Bark Box.
(8 weeks old)
Today (Boxing Day) is Hartley's tenth birthday. This dog is my heart dog. He is definitely slowing down a little, but still loves to play and even still competes at agility from time to time. …Continue
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…Continue
