The Golden in Goldendoodles.

It seems like forever since I was on my DK page.  I used to spend hour here and felt like I knew everyone!  But life changes.We lost Mater to hemangiosarcoma in May 2018.  I can still be caught with tears whenever I think of him or someone mentions him.  More than our heart dog, he gave so much to others.  Thousands of hours of therapy visits with R.E.A.D. in school and with my husband at the VA every Tuesday for over 8 years. If you didn't know him, he is the big, shaggy red doodle in the…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a doodle-aholic I think! Thankfully Tom, my DH, keeps me from becoming a hoarder! And I think that's really close to the truth! I love these dear dogs so much! My kids are grown and only the grandkids now can hold a candle to these dogs (and, of course, Tom)!
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
My husband and I have a goldendoodle named Mater, along with two cats. Mater and one of the cats are best friends! Bradley only weighs 8 lbs,and Mater is 80, but they love to get under the dining room table and play. We recently adopted a DRC doodle, Pippin. He's an adorable mini and so sweet!

Update - May 6, 2011 we added a black F2b named Ozzie to the family! He's a goof! We both wanted a black Goldendoodle.

September 3, 2018 - As you can tell I haven't been here a while. Our two cats and Mater have all crossed the Rainbow Bridge. In 2016 we added a parti-color Goldendoodle to the pack. His name is Gilligan (Gilly) and he is a sweetheart. For a time we had 3 Goldendoodles and a rescue, and I loved it. In my heart we still have 3, but only 2 are physically with us. The new puppy is, of all things, a Golden Retriever. The same breed that lent Mater all of his illnesses! But I couldn't get a doodle. Mater's jersey is retired and our grief is so great.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder, Rescue
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I've owned many breeds and shown several. When we lost our yellow Lab I knew we didn't want a shedding dog. I love long haired breeds and my husband prefers shorthairs - but when we met our first GoldenDoodle we knew exactly what we could happily compromise on!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I love to take Mater to agility and have been working with him to do Animal Assisted Therapy and get his Delta certification. Tom takes him to the park nearly every day. Before Tom retired, Mater went to work with him daily.
I just realized it's been awhile since I updated this. Mater has been doing therapy work for three years now! He loves it, especially with the kids who do tricks with him and interact with him. He likes to be read to, and to visit the adult day care too. He is going to start working at the VA hospital now as well!
Ozzie is passed puppy and novice and is now in advanced obedience with Mater! He does agility too, and I hope he can become a therapy dog as well. So far he isn't as outgoing as Mater always was. He's more my sidekick and sticks close to me.

Feb 22, 2015 - wow, a long time since I've updated my profile! Busy with a full time job and lots of volunteering with Paws and Think, Inc. and three registered therapy dogs! I guess life is good, but I think I'm too busy to notice! Love this doodle family though!
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I do weekly, but every two months we take him to Platinum Paws
Favorite Doodle Products?
Les Pooches brush - a true Godsend!
Miracle Brush is just as good I've found!
Relationship Status:
Married

Mater is named after Tow-Mater, the rusty tow truck in the movie "Cars". Mater in the movie is goofy and rust colored, and so is our Mater. In the movie Mater loves to go tractor tipping. Our Mater goes toddler tipping!

Do you know what breeder Pippin came from?  He is the perfect size! 

Thanks,

Kathy,

So nice of you to stop in on my page.  It was very nice to receive your notes today.  Funny, I never planned my page and the profile picture to match, but sometimes a personality just comes out  without even trying :)

The page was for Starlit~ may I never forget her ( although I really can't talk about her much and never was able to when she was with me.  She was unique, lovely, and very troubled sometimes.  But she was my girl and she loved us with all her heart  :)

The moon picture came from my love of Stars and Moons and photography.  It started as  joke, but the picture really does show Spud and his jump for joy with life. 

Nice to hear from you, Cathy.

Thank you so much for the welcome and kind words.  We can't wait until next Sunday when she comes home with us.  I really like and appreciate this site and the great people that come here.  I think it is such a valuable resource, and the kind people I have spoken to so far have really been wonderful.

P.S. I am in Utah...I noticed someone posted something about Utah below.

The only person I know in UTAH, is Camilla and Darwin.  She is a busy young lady: college, a new apt, and just moved.  Possibly you can contact her, and if she can not help, she may lead you to a closer member who can.

He is adorable!!

George's progress

Posted on October 13, 2012 at 11:05am 4 Comments

This is George's baby picture when our son first got him.  Cute little guy, huh?

 

His training seems to be going well, and Dustin flew down to Florida to spend a couple of days with him.  He'll be home in about a month.  I'm sad that Dustin and his family missed the adorable puppy stages, but they will have a better experience with George being through most of…

the new guy was shipped off!

Posted on September 3, 2012 at 5:21am 11 Comments

I've been so distraught, but am finally getting over it.  After two nights with baby George my son and daughter-in-law decided they couldn't deal with a puppy!  Two Nights!  Poor little guy was only 8 weeks and they were the first two nights away from him mom and siblings.  Oh my, and he peed and pooped on the floor too!  I think they forgot what puppies were like - or at least my son did.  His wife hasn't ever had a dog and isn't really a dog lover (though I don't understand that anyone…

Puppy's first visit

Posted on August 19, 2012 at 5:40pm 3 Comments

No pictures tonight, but George came over for his first visit.  Ozzie really wanted to play with him, but Oz is huge and George is only 9 weeks (but huge for 9 weeks!).  Harriet wanted nothing to do with him - clearly she wants to remain the baby of the family!  Mater was his usual chill self, welcoming George and then just hanging out. George kept trying to see if maybe Mater was his mom, but the biology was totally wrong! It was funny, but he kept nuzzling up under Mater whenever he…
