"It depends on the company. There are companies with per incident deductibles. Also, another thing to look at is if Nationwide still has an annual cap. When I looked it was 7,500/year and I would have greatly exceeded that."

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…

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
