What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Golden doodle- He was the tank of the litter and is apricot in colour. He is SO smart but can be a handful at times. I mean that literally- he likes to bite and we have the scars to prove it. Those puppy teeth hurt! Update: he is six months old now-no more biting!!! He is now trying to be a good boy-we adore him. UPDATE_he is now 15 mths old and has turned out to be such a sweet, good natured HUGE dog. Guessing his weight at 90 lbs.Update...thomas is now 2 yrs old and weighs in at 96 lbs. He is kind and gentle and people tell us he is "one of a kind". We just love him so much! UPDATE...he is now 3 years old...He is great!
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We chose a doodle because we have seen many around our city and loved the look of them. They are smart, non shedding, and sociable.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Thomas LOVES going for walks but he especially loves the off leash dog park. He is very sociable and romps and plays with the other dogs for at least two hours when he goes there. at two years old he brings us his leash when he knows it is time for "walkies". at 3 yrs old he is practically a need to speak...he lets us know exactly what he needs.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Paws Applause in Toronto or our local Petsmart for emergencies only...actually thy did a pretty good job.
Favorite Doodle Products?
He likes ROCKS! Crazy dog digs for rocks! Once in awhile he will go for a ball like a normal dog but he just likes rocks.

My next door neighbours little lab mix dog died in his sleep last night at the age of 13. My neighbour was driving along a highway near Detroit approx. 13 yrs ago when the people in the car in front of him threw a puppy our the window. Ed swerved to miss the flying object and pulled over to investigate. To his shock it was a puppy!! Ed picked him up and took him to an animal hospital and was told the puppy was barely alive and needed extensive surgery...Ed told them to do whatever…


Does anyone ever feel lazy??

My GD Thomas is 28 weeks old now. We are so diligent in walking him and making sure he has plently of excercise. He even goes for a "group dog run" for 1 1/2 hrs. to an off leash park where he can run and frolick with the 9 other dogs in the group. Today was his "day off". I let him out in the backyard at least 10 times before noon when I left the house. I did not return until 6:oo pm. I let him out in the backyard-I was just too tired to go for a walk tonight my head is aching and my husband… Continue

Hi Debbie,

So nice to get your message. My frenchies are older than your boy and go back and forth between really enjoying Zach and merely tolerating him. For the most part i allow them to work it out. My littlest is only 16lbs but quite fierce and she can let Zach know that she has had enough and he backs off. She leaps up and gives him an air snap. It is actually quite funny since even with the leap she barely makes it to his chest - but she makes the point - "you are a  pest - I don't want to play anymore." He plays most aggressively with Bruno - my male - who for most part really enjoys a good game of chase or wrestle, but will also give him a charge and an air snap when he has had enough. Gracie, my brindle is mute and she has more problems playing with him since she can't set boundaries. Sometimes she will come to me to get away from him and I will put a stop to the play, other times, I can see that he is just getting to be too much for her and I will separate them.  I am sure when he is older and calmer it  will be great between all of them, there is never fighting, just sometimes too much exuberance for the older frenchies, who like a time out or are not keen on a dog three times their size putting their head in his mouth. But getting through puppy hood is a challenge. In all honesty, it has been much better since he lost his puppy teeth. I was concerned for them, when he was constantly mouthing on them with those razor sharp teeth, they all had little scabs on them, and it seemed that they were just taking too much abuse from him, although they did not seem to mind, and he was much smaller then so they played more easily with him.

I have a dog room where they stay when I am gone. The frenchies are loose in the room and I had Zach's crate in the room. Gracie started refusing to go into the room, so one day I stole back into the house to find out what goes and he whines, so I had to take the crate out of their room so they could have peace during the day. So, Zach's crate is now in the dining room. On the other hand, at night they all sleep in bed with me, and Gracie and Zoey sleep cuddled up next to him. Bruno is my velcro dog and sleeps attached to me.

Good luck with Thomas and Wilfred!!

I heard about the bird situation.  Very disturbing!  Must have felt like your world was upside down.  So the question is then, what of the fish that people caught and ate?  It would seem to me that they would be contaminated too.  Did any people get sick?  I say one mallard on Thanksgiving weekend floating upside down near our boat launch, which seemed a bit strange.  I wonder if it was one of the infected birds.  Just a very weird and concerning situation for sure.

We are just waiting to hear from our trainer who will be conducting a therapy dog class and subsequent certification at the end.  Gav seems mature enough now that I think he is ready.  He has been fantastic out and about and meeting lots of new people.  Hoping to get going on some volunteer work with him.  My husband retires this spring and with my p/t work with the school board and the college we will be able to spend all summer at the cottage from hear on in.  This will be great as you know.  Anyways good to hear from you.  Give Thomas a squeeze from us :)


At 4:47pm on November 2, 2011, BG and Gavin said…

Hey, welcome back!  What have you been up to?  We just closed up the cottage last weekend so I feel a bit sad, but it was time.  The trip up and down the highway every weekend tends to get a bit old this time of year.  I did score a part time job at the college, beginning in January, which was just what I was hoping for.  We are going to Vegas for our anniversary trip next week, so life is good!  How is Thomas doing?


At 9:46am on August 10, 2011, BG and Gavin said…

I too have spent a great deal of time on Georgian Bay (near Lion's Head) this summer.  My angency division closed and the job offered to me was a big pay cut and NOT what I wanted to do, so I took a package.  I have applied for some part time stuff at the college, but have generally just been enjoying the summer.  Gav is doing great *touch wood.  They finally figured that he has a long time, low grade kidney infection that was flaring up.  We did 5 weeks of antibiotics and many tests and all seem to be clear now.  Glad to hear Thomas has turned out so well.  He sounds just like Gavin.  I couldn't ask for better.  Everyone in our cottage community loves him and he is welcome to come whenever we visit neighbours. So, enjoy the rest of your summer and make sure to check in from time to time ;)

Hey Debbie, what have you been up to?  Have not seen you on the board in a while.


At 7:31am on June 30, 2011, Cindy LR said…
We feel really lucky to finally find a good you mentioned it's just like finding a good doctor!  No plans to look elsewhere now that we're "in" ;)  As for Yuki's cut, we had her cut fairly short but they only charged us $80. ??  Not sure why the difference...Well, now that I think about it, my mother picked her up and that's the price she told me. She didn't want me to reimburse her so I'm not sure if she "adjusted" the price just so I would feel better paying her back. I guess I'll find out the next time I bring Yuki in again.  will let you know.  Thanks again and have a great long weekend!
At 9:17am on June 28, 2011, Cindy LR said…

Hi Debbie!  Just a quick update re: grooming.  I called Paws Applause and was able to get Yuki an appointment!  I did mention your name and Thomas's so that maybe what got us in. ;)  They did a great job with her and her coat is so soft now...she feels like a lamb!  We're really happy with the cut and I know Yuki feels so much better now.  Thanks again for the referral! We'll definitely be going back :)

At 7:30pm on May 31, 2011, Cindy LR said…
Thanks for the quick response Debbie! I'll give them a call this week and let them know of your referral. Hopefully we'll get lucky and they take us as clients! They are super close so that would an added bonus. I'll let you know how it goes...thanks again! :). Sometime this summer we'll have to find our way down to your end to meet Thomas and all the other doodles!
At 4:32pm on May 31, 2011, Cindy LR said…
Hi Debbie, hope all is well with you and Thomas!
Just wondering if you found a groomer that you're happy with...I've lost the courage to groom Yuki myself and I really don't want to take her back to the other place we mentioned last time. Any input is appreciated! Thanks! :)
At 1:34pm on February 7, 2011, Cindy LR said…
Hi Debbie,  Thanks for getting back to me about your groomer.  It's the same place that I've taking Yuki and I have to agree with you.  I've been thinking of changing groomers but run into the problem of wondering where to go next?  I am almost thinking of trying to do Yuki's grooming myself since I've started to groom our other dog anyway but I think I'll have to check out the discussions in the Grooming group first ;) In the meantime, let me know if find another groomer.  Cheers!
