Paisley is home - updates and concerns

Hello Doodle World!Our sweet Paisley has been home with us for about four weeks now. I have been holding out on giving a blog/discussion update. If you were to ask me a week or two ago, I would have had a very different outlook on Miss Paisley. In the first few weeks we were losing our minds. Now things are a bit calmer so I have time to write this.Everyone says taking care of two dogs is the same amount of stress as one one or at least that's what people kept telling us as they begged us to…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a high school English teacher at an all boys private school. I have taught there for five years. I graduated from Case Western Reserve University. This is our second goldendoodle. We have an 3 1/2 year old named Lacey and are getting her a sister in a few weeks named, Paisley.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Lacey, is our soon to be Goldendoodle. She was born the second week of February. She came home at the seven week mark, March 29th. Lacey is our first doodle and is an F1 English Goldendoodle - parents McGyver (English Golden Retriever) and Holly (Cream Small Standard Poodle) . She is 85 lbs. and sheds a moderate amount.

Paisley is our second doodle. She will be coming home in a few weeks. She is an F1B goldendoodle. She has a curly apricot coat. Her mom is named Scout (goldendoodle) and dad is Waffles (standard poodle). She should mature to about 60 lbs but we will see. Lacey was predicted to be 45 so I take every prediction with a grain of salt!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We wanted a breed that was outgoing, loving and charismatic. We also wanted a dog that would be good with children (in the future) and that would by hypoallergenic. We know that some goldendoodles still bother people with allergies but we hope that the shedding will not be as bad as it currently is with my mom's dog. Also, it goes without saying, they are ridiculously cute :)
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We love taking our doodle on walks, going to the park, and especially taking her pumpkin picking in the fall. All the kids at Patterson Fruit Farm love meeting Lacey. She does really well with kids and it is good for her. We love lounging around at home or romping around the yard. She loves wrestling and playing fetch.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
We brush regularly and the groomer does the cutting.
Relationship Status:
Married
Would you be willing to Dog Sit on occasion for other DoodleKisses members? (You are NOT committing to anything by saying yes - you are just saying you might be willing to do this if you were acquainted with the other member and the circumstances were right.)
Yes

10 weeks and already a BIG girl... (ugh oh we may have purchased a polar bear...)

Posted on April 21, 2014 at 7:27pm 18 Comments

Since my last blog post, Lacey has gotten big, and I mean really big. I don't know when this happened. I guess we don't notice as much being with her every day but our friends and family were shocked when they saw her again on Easter. Some of them have only seen her pictures, while others met her the first weekend we brought her home (about three weeks ago.) On Friday, Lacey had her second vet appointment with Dr. Amy. When she hopped on the scale, I thought it was broken. They even double…

It's been 2 weeks... has it really only been that long?

Posted on April 13, 2014 at 6:47pm 16 Comments

This past Saturday marked the two week mark for how long Lacey has been home with us. It is safe to say, the honeymoon is over! Lacey is now 9 weeks and is just a hyper ball of fur. Don't get me wrong, we love her dearly. She has instantly become part of our family and we have so much fun with her. It is just a lot to get used to.

We have finally established some of a routine for her. This has helped quite a bit with potty training. Its been a week since she has had an accident…

Lacey's First Day Home!

Posted on March 30, 2014 at 7:28am 15 Comments

Well, after a 3 hour car ride, we made it out to Columbus way earlier than expected. Maybe the excitement made us try faster but it was a nice, and rather quick drive out. Eric drove while I graded papers in the front seat - it was a challenge  but at least I got something done because since getting home, no grading has been done and lessons still need to be made for tomorrow - oh the life of a first year teacher. 

 

Anywho, back to Lacey. When we arrived the breeders, Lacey…

Tomorrow's the day!

Well, tomorrow is the day that we bring Lacey home. Time has gone so slow and we have been waiting so long for this day to come. We miss her like crazy since that first initial meeting and we cannot wait to see our little ball of fluff again.

That being said, I am feeling this mix of emotions. I'm so so so happy to finally have her home and I am beyond excited. But I can't help but feel really nervous at the same time. I have been running through everything in my head constantly. Do I…

Elsa weighs close to 20 lbs now at 18 weeks.  The breeder said she would be between 40-50 lbs as an adult.  Have fun visiting the puppies this weekend!

Welcome to DoodleKisses. Such a great site to be a part of. We have four Doodles and live in Lima Ohio . Have fun with your new baby!!

Thank you!  *I think* the English doodles are more stockier compared to the regular/american ones and their coloring is different.  I wanted an English mainly because of the cream color.  We haven't done any socializing with other doodles (or any other dogs) yet because we just got done with her vaccinations.  We are ready now!

Oh, I love the growth chart for Lacey on your page! Very cool :)
