How big will Willow get?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stacy Apr 28. 21 Replies

I know we all ask the same question. But the suspense is killing me! Willow was 27 pounds and 17 weeks when I got her and tomorrow she'll be 21 weeks and she's 32 pounds. Part of me feels like she…Continue

Willow has a UTI and KC has a new urgent care vet

I feel like reasonably often I see the suggestion of a UTI as the potential cause for housebreaking problems. So I wanted to share what an actual UTI looked like for us, in case it helps someone.…Continue

So Willow is 18 weeks now and she's growing so fast! I swear I can see her growing! She was questionably taller than Katie when she got here, but now there's no question. And the collar I put on her…Continue

"So glad she is okay!  We chose a quieter street for kids and pets but some houses are still under construction so it's quite dangerous until the fall at least.  Riley got out once and it was scary! Rell Maggie no more adventures!"

I’ll start with the end first. Everyone is fine, except my heart rate is still well above normal.I think people who know me would say that I’m a cautious dog owner. Both back gates are locked. I go outside with the girls every time. They wear collars with tags. They are microchipped and their info is up to date. We are always on leash outside the yard. I could go on but my point is, I’m careful. I’ve never lost a dog. I look at the lost and found site and sometimes, in my head I feel a little……See More

Katie is my first doodle. She's a miniature f1b goldendoodle. She's a total sweetheart. I also have Maggie, adopted from DRC in 2018. She's my sweet girl. She's supposed to be a labradoodle, but she is very poodley.

The Evolution of Maggie

Posted on April 17, 2018 at 10:26am 7 Comments


Maggie’s a different dog than any I’ve known before. It’s been 9 weeks that she’s been here, and we coexist peacefully. She’s doing perfectly on her potty training when I’m home. Going to work is still a major work in progress, and I haven’t found the perfect solution, but we’re working on it.

She’s still not very affectionate. Everyone has an opinion, and I think that the truth lies somewhere within all the wisdom I’ve received. She went to see the groomer last week and she did…

the doodles scared a possom "to death"

Posted on November 28, 2016 at 5:42pm 15 Comments

I swear I do not live in the country! I live in a suburb very near the center of my town. It’s not a huge town, but it’s definitely not the country! And it’s far more developed than the subdivision I moved from a year ago – maybe that’s the problem. There was more room for the wildlife to be out in the woods. But I have seen more possums in the yard since I moved here than ever before – in fact I’m sure that I never got up close and personal with one until we moved here.  But the dogs and I…

Oh my gosh!  I LOVE the patterns.  I bookmarked the page, hoping that I can resist.  Which ones are you ordering/thinking of ordering?  I really love the henna, the paisley (purple best), and the floral patterns.  Now that you have three, you get that you can't always get these cool things when multiplied by three.  They are cheaper though so.......

We also found that when our Springer ate fish- based kibble, he had fewer ear problems. That is purely anecdotal.

Somehow I read your post about Katie's ears but I can't find it now to reply. LOL  Here is a suggestion that could at least give her ears some 'air time.'  Using a soft scrunchy, pull her ears up in a pony tail.  This give them some time to dry out.  Another suggestion is to have her groomer shave shorter on her head under her ears. She doesn't have to be shaved bald, just closer so that the ears also have some room to breathe.

Stacy, your Doodles are beautiful! I also have my puppy's mother. Daphne was my first Doodle and a year later, Lucy was retired from breeding and needed a forever home. We just love her to pieces!

Hi!  I saw your comment on buying bras in bulk!  lol

I am no expert, but look at how you react to the 'thief' when you find her.  What worked for us, was correcting our pup as soon as possible, with a 'NO' and putting an appropriate toy in his mouth.  We worked on the command 'drop it' as soon as possible too.  They are curious little pups, and they love a good game of chase.  It could be she just enjoys your attention when you find your bras.  We used to have a parrot, and we learned that negative attention is just as good as positive attention. 

it sounds like she might test you on EVERYTHING in the house. And as they grow, they find more interesting things, but most of all, just want your entire focus, and will do things just to get your attention!!  teaching independent appropriate playtime is a chore, but well worth it.  being consistent is the key to success!!  hope it gets better
