Profile Information

About Me:
I am one of the elders in the DK communtity. I live in So Ca area and have been married going on 50 years. We have two grown children and two Siberian Husky granddogs. I have been a chemist, a science teacher, a fulltime mom, a soccer coach, a girl scout leader, and spent 20 years on our local school board. I have always had a dog or two or three.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
I had two Australian Labradoodles. They are full brothers, but not littermates. Roo died in Dec 17 of congestive heart failure. Tigger now had a new companion a 3 month old female ALD named Murphy. Before the ALD darlings we have always had Siberian Huskies with one Golden Retreiver tucked in there. We have loved all our dogs and the doodles
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
My husband has dog allergies which limits our choices. he did not do well with the one Golden we had. We have always had Siberian Huskies which are generally non allergenic. However, 12 years ago I REALLY permanently injured my back. That combined with forty years of vacuuming everyday sent me looking for a different breed. I researched doodles for two years and choose to spend the next dog generation of my life with Australian labradoodles. They combined allergy friendly with non shedding plus high intelligence and love to be loved. Grooming them once every six weeks beats vacumming every day, especially since DH usually helps with the grooming.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Swimming in our pool, playing fetch, training them to be good doggy citizens. Walking, visiting dog parks, and just doodling around.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Nikki, the groomer at our vet, she was a professional dog show groomer and handler.
Favorite Doodle Products?
Zogoflex toys and many squeaker flatties - no stuffing.
Relationship Status:
Would you be willing to Dog Sit on occasion for other DoodleKisses members? (You are NOT committing to anything by saying yes - you are just saying you might be willing to do this if you were acquainted with the other member and the circumstances were right.)
This is what Tigger loves to do!!

Roo loves to swim in the pool!!!

Tigger Tells the Truth

Posted on January 24, 2018 at 11:00am 7 Comments

(Editor's note: Richard is our son, Peishan his wife, Blue a nd Ice are their Siberians Huskies.)

Well Roo  has not come home.  We left the vet's, Roo wasn't in car, or at home, at Richard's at Heather's or at the vet's.  Roo left his fur there though.  Mom said he crossed the Rainbow bridge.  Why didn't he take me?  I love to go new places.  I don't really understand, but it is good I was here because Mom and Dad needed me to lick their tears (nice and salty, sort of like…


Roo Reports from across the Rainbow Bridge

Posted on December 3, 2017 at 12:39pm 28 Comments

Roo here.  I have been very tired so haven't reported much lately.  The last I remember I was laying on the floor and my mom was petting my head -love that - well love any attention really.  I was very very sleepy.

When I woke up I felt great, like a young pup again, but smarter.  I can't find Mom or Dad or Tigger, but there are lots of other dogs and grass  and trees and smells.  Oh the smells.....  This must be a very big dog park.  No people though - weird. 



When hearts are breaking

Posted on December 5, 2015 at 10:59am 51 Comments

Roo has congestive heart failure.  He is only eight years old.  His heart is breaking and so is mine. I can tell you that  Roo has an excellent vet, so good in fact that the vet cardiologist is willing to turn Roo's care over to him.  Something which she said she never does.  I could tell you that it is not connected to his Addison's.  I could tell you he had an excellent check up in July. I could tell you that this sometimes happens in labs and poodles.  

But none of that…


Woof, woof...woof woof woof - bear alert!

Roo Reports - bobcats and deer and bears, oh my!

Posted on August 28, 2013 at 4:36pm 13 Comments

Roo here, reporting from my new location.  Mom and Tigger and I have been busy.  Dad too.  We moved to a new place.  At first I thought we were just visiting for a long time.  Dad is always teasing Mom about how much she packs for trips.  Also she kept Tigger and I on a leash a lot which means visiting.


But Tigger and I have decided that this is home.  There are stairs to go to bed in this house, Tigger already fell down them once!  DID NOT - I was just going very very…

Presenting it was perfect! We had a picnic lunch after the first romp and I was able to present it then with many other doodle owners present.

I was writing out the address for your package when I realized I don't know your last name.  I thought about sending it to "Maryann, Roo and Tigger" but the postal guy said it might not arrive. He also muttered something uncomplimentary about crazy old ladies under his breath but I chose not to hear it.  Anyway, I'll be back at the post office tomorrow sending more gifts (it's late, I know - I'm calling them New Years presents), so I'll mail the stuff for Roo then if you see this message in time.

I'll send the meds on Monday.  These drugs are terrific - they gave Ellie and me almost a year of additional time, even though she was 11 and had other cardiac issues besides the congestive heart failure.  She had some congenital heart defects, and had had a pacemaker implanted about 6 years earlier. Nevertheless she was a most warm-hearted and caring dog, and she would be glad her meds will be used to help your Roo.

Yes, I'm very fortunate - it's our (husband ....) company and our staff love having Riley (and up until 2 months ago, Maggie too) at the office.  They make the "worst" day better for everyone!

Harpo does not have Addison's apparently and we are not coming to San Diego this month because Charlie's uncle passed away in July and he went down for the funeral.  I stayed at home with the dogs.

Where is Arcadia?  Closer to Los Angeles or San Diego?  The reason I am asking is because we may be going to a birthday party for my husband's uncle (98 years old) in San Diego in August and I would like to leave our dogs with someone who is acquainted with ALDs.  We have Harpo (ALD) and Zeppo (Jackapoo).

I was reading about Roo in your blog.

I heard that you have experience with Addisons with one of your dogs.  It may be that Harpo has Addisons, so I would appreciate your input.

hehe I am right in-between South Pasadena and Chinatown in the hills off the 110 fwy.  There is a hiking trail that we visit often in Monrovia :)

No, I haven't been to the seal beach romps yet.  I've been meaning to take Zoe soon.  Would love to meet you sometime!!!  

At 12:25pm on April 7, 2014, Joanna, Zoe & Bender said…

Hi Maryann!  thanks for the friendship!  I noticed that we are neighbors…I live in Montecito Heights which is a hop skip and a jump away from Arcadia!
