  • Hi. I'm new to doodlekisses. We have placed a deposit on a puppy born Aug 18 and so we have until October to learn and prepare and be excited! Hi fellow puppy people. :)
  •   As many of you know, I lost my beloved 6 year old australian labradoodle, Paz to T cell lymphoma in May.   I had placed a deposit on a puppy from a planned litter, and the breeder contacted me with the great news that the mommy dog is pregnant, and the litter is due September 7th.  I should be able to fly to North Carolina on November 11, to pick up the puppy! 

  • We met ours as well last weekend, and she pretty well choose US.  When we got there they were all in a pen, and she waddled right up to us and stayed with us for the whole visitation.  We did play with all the puppies but when it came down to it we had an instant connection with this one.  And since we had first pick it worked out perfect.  TEN more days until we bring her home....this is worse than Christmas. LOL

  • I got to meet my puppy last weekend!  He is officially Boston McDoodle and so cute.  He was shaking like crazy when I picked him up at first, but I put him down and let him explore and by the end he crashed on my lap:)

    His Gotcha day is Aug 12th (20 days!).


  • Lynda, she is just gorgeous.  I'm going to be picking up a puppy in November and taking it on a plane with me.  Just wondering how big your puppy is, and what carrier you used, as well as the size?

  • She's here, and what an absolute sweetheart.  I flew to Spokane to pick her up and not a fuss at all on the plane, and not even any crying that night.  Only problem so far is that she likes to pee on the doggie beds outside.  I think it is a territorial thing to get her scent on the beds that have been used by the other dogs.3366967012?profile=original3366966991?profile=original

  • Gotcha day is in 18 days!! I'm So excited!

  • I just drove 15 hours for my goldendoodle and I would do it all over again if I had to :) the trip down to Dallas (from Wisconsin) was scheduled to take us 15 hours almost on the dot and we made it home in about 16-16 and a half!! We were expecting to have to stop a lot but we didn't end up having to stop for more than food or gas! My boyfriend or I sat in the back seat with him and he slept a lot! We also set up a piddle pad and he used that everytime he had to go potty!! We didn't have him in his crate at all and he did just fine :) we brought a little tupaware container for food and water and that worked out just fine! We could tell when he was thirsty when he started panting heavily. We brought toys to chew on and lots and lots of blankets for cuddling! Our breeder told us that they can get car sick so she suggested having a window open or the air on which was fine with us since it was pretty warm out. We found he loved to be held and snuggled a lot but also liked to roam around which is why one of us sat in the back seat with him. We put boxes in between the back seat and the driver / passenger seats so he wouldn't fall off the back seat on to the floor (they will want to explore all over) all in all it was a great trip and I hope you have a great time Julie and Ellie!
  • Julie and Elllie..... puppies are like children... stop often for a potty break and something to drink.  If you put water in the crate, it will more than likely get knocked over and get everything and puppy all wet.  Offer food on regular feeding schedule...though if unsure of travelling, she might not eat. (this is another reason to stop for potty breaks). :)  Make sure you have leash on the puppy and are gripping it BEFORE opening car door .  You never know when they will take off.   Relax and she will more than likely sleep most of the time.  Good luck and enjoy!

  • We will be picking up our fur baby girl on June 16th!  We will be traveling about 9 hours by car to get her.  Does anyone have any suggestions for traveling that amount of time with an 8 week old puppy?

Have placed a deposit on a standard size Australian Labradoodle to be born at beginning of September

Hi All, I was the mom of an amazing labradoodle named Paz, who at the age of 5, was diagnosed with lymphoma in November 2015, and after waging a courageous battle (chemotherapy/radiation treatment), Paz crossed the rainbow bridge one month ago.  Paz became a registered Pet Partner therapy dog at age 14 months;  I am Director of Children's Services at the NYC Family Justice Center in Brooklyn and for the past four years, Paz accompanied me to work where he provided amazing support to the…

Tell Kids or Don't tell kids... what did you do?

Hello! I just found out we will be getting our girl (still working on name) at the end of November! I'm so excited and nervous :) I've successfully made it out alive, four times in that newborn/toddler sleepless night stage but have never raised a puppy before!! I grew up with a dog and we adopted a dog from another family 4yrs ago when it was 6. She sadly passed away this summer and my kids were devastated. My youngest who is five asks or prays daily for a new dog. She wanted a "puppy" themed…

Meet our new Australian Labradoodle named Cooper

We are just over a week away from being able to bring home our new baby and we are super excited. It was a very hard decision on which to pick out of the littler but we loved how he interacted with us in person and the parti colors. We have loved watching him grow since he was born and can't wait to have him home with us next week! He is a full breed Australian Labradoodle from Chattanooga, TN.
