  • Terrific!
  • We have 10 dogs in our immediate family.  All are invited for holidays.  Five are Doodles.  Here is 5 waiting for dinner.



  • Thanks Nancy, Ned, and Clancy! Your dogs are adorable!
  • Congrats on your new puppy, Danielle.  My mom had Westies - what great dogs.

  • Hi! I am so glad to have found this group. We have a 10 year old ( we think, he is a rescue so his exact age is not known) Westie named Dugan who has been with us for 8 years. This summer we lost his "brother" and playmate and he had withdrawn from playing and seemed down. We thought getting a puppy would be a good idea to reinvigorate him and also to grow up with our 9 month old and 5 year old human children. We brought Kallie, a f1 standard Goldendoodle home 5 weeks ago. She is now 15 weeks. It has been an interesting adjustment. Dugan has not wanted to play with his new sister, but he has tolerated her. She is always playbowing and barking at him trying to get him to play, but he ignores her (it probably is less bothersome to him then it otherwise would be because he is deaf and cannot hear her barking at him).
  • I took my three on a walk on the trail behind the beach today and they were great. When we were walking out, I saw a bird (dove) sitting on a post and I thought it was a sculpture.  I said, "You are so beautiful, you look real."  He turned his head and I realized he was real.  He just stayed on the post as we walked behind him.  I had the two larger doodles on pronged collars and the little one on a halter, but I usually walk them one at a time.  It worked just fine with three dogs, however.

  • Hello everyone! I will be picking up doodle number 2 on April 25th so I'm looking for lots of new tips to make the transition smooth on the new puppy and Loki. So excited to see what I can learn here and meet the new fluff ball!
  • Welcome and hope that rollercoaster ride is great!

  • Welcome Abigail. I would love to see a photo of Juno. A Bernedoodle sounds adorable!!!

  • Welcome and good luck.

How much should I allow our older dog to correct the new puppy?

I've had my new pup (10.5 weeks) for about a week now and things have been going okay considering he's a little ball of energy!  My current dog is about 5 years old and has been doing his best to tolerate the little guy.  They are actually really good together in the front/backyard (no growling from the older dog) - the older dog even tries to play with him sometimes.  Once inside is where the growling occurs.  The puppy learned early on to leave our older dog alone and has been good about not…

You are probably wondering why I joined this group... (Partial Question)

Hello everybody!Like the title says, you might be wondering why I joined this group.  You probably are not because you probably have no Idea who I am. But if you just stopped reading and quickly looked at my account, you will see why you might be wondering. At the moment, We have one doodle, Bella! She is a Goldendoodle. She is now a little over a year and we are thinking of adding a second doodle.(yay!) We are debating on a few different kinds, but leaning toward one or two (breeds of doodles.…

Gracie is obsessed with the puppy!

Gracie loves the puppy, but I feel it's to the point of obsession. She just has to be right there playing with Jade. Is this just because they are both still puppies just a year apart?On the other hand Barkley keeps his distance unless he wants to play. Jade does sneak attacks on him. Hehehehe.Gracie and Jade are always mouthing each other and wrestling. For the most part Gracie is pretty gentle while Jade is not with those razor sharp puppy teeth! Gracie is at least 80 lbs to Jade's 10. So, I…
