Profile Information

About Me:
I am a 52 year old homemaker. My girls are now 24 and 25 and my oldest tells me all the time I am a stay at home mom and then likes to add "wait a minute...your kids are full grown... you are just a stay at home." No wonder, I got a doodle. I used to work at an Assisted Living Retirement Facility in MD as an Assistant Activity Director. When we moved to PA, I stopped working there, but have continued to volunteer there one night a week. I do game night and it is a very interesting group. I bake them home made cookies and am smart enough to make them play the game before I serve the cookies.
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 a Female Chocolate Labradoodle named Fudge. She was one year old on Christmas. We brought her home on Friday the 13th (3/13/09). After I saw Beyonce in concert, I announced Fudge's middle name was now Beyonce and my family wanted to get me committed :)

On 3/27/10 (born 1/10/10), we added Vernors (Vern) to our family. He is a cream colored Labradoodle. His official title is Vernors Macaroni.

We name all of our dogs some kind of food name and Vernors is after a Midwest Ginger Ale. (close enough)
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We have had Labs in the past and loved their temperament. This time around we wanted to start with a puppy and one that does not shed. It has been wonderful.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
I love taking them to the dog park and out on the rail trail for walks. We also go to the tennis courts and play ball until they are tired. Both dogs ride along with me in the car while I do my errands.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
A little bit but nothing major, Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Cathy's Canine Designs.
Favorite Doodle Products?
Bully sticks, Ty Bow Wow beanies, the stuffed animals with the beating heart inside (can not think of the name), jolly balls, and tennis balls.
Relationship Status:
Married

Fireworks and Doodles, Oh My!

Posted on July 12, 2018 at 5:59am 21 Comments

I hate fireworks. I am not going to beat around the bush and start by saying I only hate some fireworks, maybe just the loud boom ones. No, I hate them all. As a kid I used to watch them and later when I had kids, we would drive somewhere in horrible traffic so we could watch an hour’s worth of flashes only to have to try and get back home before dawn in the bumper to bumper traffic. It was never my favorite experience and knowing me, I probably offered bribes to my children to make it more…

Why Do We Do It? (In Memoriam)

Posted on December 20, 2017 at 7:26am 26 Comments

Yesterday, I was talking to my sister on the phone while I was walking my dogs. In my case, there should be a law No talking, while walking because my dogs are able to sense that my attention is elsewhere and usually act out. Vern takes every opportunity to go right, when I go left and Fudge ups her hunting skills to expert level. At some point in our conversation, I told my sister I had to go because I needed both hands free and I told her to remind me that I was…

Fudge and Vern Made the Naughty List This Year!

Posted on December 13, 2017 at 6:00am 13 Comments

There was a time I blogged a lot on Doodle Kisses. It seemed my dogs were always up to something and gave me lots of material. As they have gotten older, mostly I am still dealing with the same stuff I have blogged about for years, so I guess I have less and less to say. I mean, how many times can I blog that my dogs are terrible on leashes, think recall means I just keep re-calling them, and are sometimes on Santa’s naughty list? Well, at the ages of almost eight and nine respectively, Vern…

Felix Unger and Oscar Madison.....aka Fudge and Vern!

Posted on September 19, 2017 at 6:35am 18 Comments

Yesterday, I mowed the yard and must have picked up some kind of prickers from a bush along the way.  I am not exactly sure what to call these dreaded little things that hurt to touch and stick to clothing, but I do know now that entering “prickers” on Google brings up all kinds of unrelated pictures. 

 

One of the few times my dogs opt to stay in the house when I am outside is when I mow the yard. Most things that I do I have two nosy dogs following right behind me to see what…

You've come a long way, LAURIE, and I love these painting of Vern and Fudge.  I haven't been here for a long time.  What program are you using?  I am busy in Oregon with my three dogs and other activities.  Currently in Texas for my nephew's 50 yr. birthday celebration and waiting for my brother and mother to arrive.  My greetings to all of you

for a wonderful 2019.

I just was reading your post about Grandparents - so easy to manipulate.  I so much want to be a manipulated grandparent that I am going to be a "foster grandparent" to a little boy with a single mom in Klamath Falls.  I am also going to be a CASA (court-appointed special advocate) for a kid in foster care here in Grants Pass.   Besides kids and dogs, I still get in some gardening, swimming, and ceramics.  I manage to keep busy in our new home in Oregon and don't miss California at all.

Haw!  So no more material for blogging.  Why do I doubt that?  Just because the dogs are older?  Feel lucky because my dogs just don't seem to last that long.  We lost Hondo at seven years, Groucho Too at eight years, and Copper (foster dog) at nine years.  So, Harpo will be eight this year and I worry about him.  He is acting a little older, but still very active.  Must be time for a new dog for you!

Thanks for the warm welcome. Still very curious on how his coat will come in. Sheds a tiny bit but at only 11 weeks old I'm sure it's just the puppy coat.

I went to my gorocery store yesterday to find vernon's ginger ale and couldn't find any. :-(

Though its much belated (on my part), thank you, Fudge and Vern for wishing me a happy birthday. Too cute! And, Happy Belated Birthday to you, Laurie - from Zeus and me.

At 7:38am on May 20, 2016, Carol and Banjo said…

Happy Birthday (belatedly) Laurie!!!     Hope your day was as wonderful as you ARE!

See any similarities?

At 6:50pm on January 28, 2016, Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie said…

You and your mom are welcome.  My mom has gotten to a miserable stage also. I can't make "it" better (any of the "its") and all is negative.  Her favorite attention is having physical stuff so that I have to take her to the doctor, and that she can complain that the staff doesn't think her important enough to respond quick enough.   :-{

Thanks, Laurie, for the friend's invite! I feel like I know your dogs, personally, from all the blogs I've read and pics I've seen. And I've seen photos of you...love the one with the hula loop on the "Sound of Music set". :-)
