Profile Information

What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
We have an F1 English Goldendoodle, Kona.

We had researched Goldendoodles for several years and were intrigued by the idea of having the wonderful temperament of a Golden Retriever combined with less shedding. Kona has been a wonderful addition to our family. He has been the easiest dog to train due to his remarkable intelligence and eagerness to please. We are also pretty sure he speaks English fluently. His dam was a blue poodle and sire an English Golden Retriever. Kona is very gentle and calm. He does love to play but when he isn't involved in activities he is content to rest quietly. When asked to do so he obeys easily. Kona loves to fetch and is by far the best dog we have ever had at dropping the ball or toy for us. Amazing. Our other dogs seemed to believe the name of that game was Keep Away. Clearly a problem with the trainers (us) but Kona wants to play badly enough he brings the toy right back and drops it for more fun. We are thrilled to have a doodle.

On Oct 24, 2010 we picked out a new puppy from Kona's sire and a white poodle dam to give to our DD who lives with us. Owen is cream with apricot "highlights".
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
less shedding, love the Golden Retriever temperament
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
My husband runs Kona 3-5 miles 4-5 times a week. Kona loves to fetch inside and outside. He cuddles on the bed but doesn't sleep with us. I enjoy brushing and grooming him and checking his feet after his runs. It's great bonding time for us. Kona and Owen are a riot to watch as they wrestle and play. Both fetch and have fun.

Vet visits

Posted on November 6, 2013 at 8:27pm 35 Comments

Last Thursday we made an appointment to establish the dogs at a vet and to have Kona's ears examined. He had a double ear infection because while I was on the mainland for two weeks, no one remembered to take care of doodle ears. It's only his second ear infection in six years. Vet visit #1.

Then the crazies happened. On Friday at the beach Kona's eye became bright red and then it was white and swollen! We rushed him to the vet. He had a laceration on his inner eyelid. So very…


Doodles in Hawaii

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 11:30pm 42 Comments

We have been in Hawaii since July 3 and 4. Moving to Hawaii with dogs is incredibly complicated and stressful. For four months I fretted and worried that I would not cross every t and dot every i and my precious doodles would be quarantined! I worried so much I could not actually talk about it. My DD and I would begin a conversation regarding all that needed to be done to get them there and I would have to stop and take a break. Hawaii has no rabies so in order to keep it that way dog owners…


Jennifer needs our help (Jennifer and Jack)

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 5:00pm 24 Comments

As many of you know, Jennifer (of Jennifer and Jack) has serious health issues. She was sent to National Jewish Hospital last year to try to find help for her Cystic Fibrosis and other unrelated chronic conditions. They discovered a hole in her heart and attempted to repair that with some serious consequences.

Jennifer has the opportunity to be at National Jewish again, and I am hoping some of her friends at DK can help her out. She was supposed to be in Colorado for a short time but…


Kona's tail -- CUT SHORT

Posted on May 15, 2013 at 5:00pm 261 Comments

Several weeks ago I noticed Kona had a sore on his tail. It got to be the size of an almond with a black dot in the center. I took him to the vet. A new vet I had never seen before put him on a course of antibiotics. When the 10 day course finished the wound looked the same.

My regular vet saw him this time and told me Kona had a tumor and since it didn't respond to the…

Yes, time does fly. Isn't it funny that Kona used to remind us of Hercules (my Portie), and now he has the phantom coat like Zeus? Kona and Owen have stolen my heart too. Please give them a big hug from me. :O)

Is Kona the 90-pounder and Owen the 75-pounder?  They are both still squeezably adorable! My Zeus resembles Kona's phantom coloring and he's 90 lbs. - can't believe my kid is 5 years old now. Gosh, your hairy kids don't look their age either.

Oh ok. He is so cute. Mine was going to be 15 this year. I was almost thinking they could have been siblings! Thanks for the info!

Hey! Thank you all for taking the time to respond! Sooo we changed ozzies food back to the original and he only threw up 3 times in the week that we were gone! I'm still a little nervous, as that's definitely not normal. But it's an improvement from last week! I'm going to get him into the vet this week and see what they have to say! Thank you all again!!

Hi Bonnie! You ARE in Hawaii...and on Oahu (my favorite island). Thanks for friend request. I look foward to talking about Doods and Paradise. Take care, Sally

Thanks for the response. I wish you both the best. I know from reading old posts that she has chronic migraines. How do you like Hawaii as opposed to the mainland? Do you have any tips for getting Jaxson ready for the 5 Day or Less Quarantine Program? We did his blood test last week.

Thank you so much for the encouragement.  I think your daughter in law has a great idea.  Paz's trainer selects the therapy dogs for Sloan Kettering, so I'm sure she could make the arrangements when Paz gets a clean bill of health.  Have a wonderful, safe and peaceful holiday.

Poor Kona...Ellie does the very same thing...and her dinner time is 5pm as usually begins about 4:30ish and she starts to ask for her dinner and it just breaks my heart...half an hour must feel like a lifetime to our sweet dogs...nice chatting with you Bonnie...please give Kona a big hug from Ellie and I.

Awww...Bonnie you are so very sweet...thank you so much for your kind words about my girl...doodle hugs to you and Kona...XO

Bonnie, I am just reading your comment to me. I am so behind :) I have been walking since I broke my toes....LOL! Yes, they are much better. How are you doing? How is your family?
