Two letter difference

I saw a heartwarming movie out about the difficult training program for guide dogs for the blind, and follows a litter of lab puppies from birth to adoption.  Its called Pick of the Litter.  I told a friend about it, and she thought I said Pick up the Litter.

Earth Animal No Hide Salmon Chews

I know there were discussions before as to whether or not these chews were safe, at the time we did determine they were safe. I have recently read articles that they are not safe, the advertising is misleading and different sources have determined these are made of hide....any thoughts on these? Toby loves them, always supervised, and only gets one occasionally. Now I am doubting if he should have these as I would never give him rawhide, and I am afraid now that is what these might be...

Feeding an orphan puppy...

We are fostering a Maltese puppy who came to us from the San Diego Humane Society at seven days old.

The Humane Society provided us with the milk replacement that they use.  It is excellent and surpasses any previous milk replacer we have used.  

Of course, mom's milk is the best!  However, there are times when a lactating mom is not available.  The…

Second Opinion

Hopefully this post will find all of you in good health! However, if any of my friends on DK have any serious health problems and/or are contemplating serious (and possibly life changing) surgery, I strongly recommend that you get a second medical opinion before proceeding with that plan of care.

I had serious back problems. My back hurt me so badly that I could not sit up, I had to eat my meals lying down and a car ride was excruciating in the pain that it caused me.

The first…

Another Reminder About Xylitol

Hey everyone, long time no see! I just wanted to write because we recently experienced a really big scare in the family and I thought it would be worth posting a reminder.

My sister's 2 year old Maltipoo almost died this last week, after getting into gum inside of her purse while they were asleep. He ate around 15 pieces of the gum - it was Ice Breakers and the first ingredient is xylitol. They rushed him to the emergency vet when they found out what he'd done - and they kept…

Chase Crossed the Rainbow Bridge Today

I haven't been super active on DK in recent years, but I know that some of the older members will remember my dog Chase. He was helped over the rainbow bridge today after a sudden illness. 

He was the dog that was sent here to teach me. We had a difficult relationship in the early years, a combination of his anxiety and reactivity and my inexperience. Over time people came into my life to teach me and as I learned more about behavioural problems in dogs and came to understand him…

Fireworks and Doodles, Oh My!

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…

Belle's Very Bad, Really Rotten, 48-hour Independence Day

I'll start by saying that Belle, who turned 3 in June, has never had a problem with the booming noises (thunder, fireworks, even guns) that periodically plague our neighborhood.  She first came home in August, so by her first 4th of July here, she was already a year old.  I had been reading Doggy Dan's training advice, and convinced a number of (somewhat dubious) dog-owning friends to gather with us and their puppies in a large living room supplied with lots of antlers, Himalayan chews,…

Floor Cleaner For Judy's Birthday

NOT REALLY FOR HER BIRTHDAY  The purchase just happened to coincide closely to her birthday...



AND I REALLY DIDN'T BUY IT FOR HER  Although she will benefit from the purchase...



All of our floors are ceramic tile - our rescue dogs are not always house trained so dog proof floors are pretty necessary. We want our home spiffy clean despite our dogs...



We use a Hoover…

Trolling for new members for Northern Va. Doodles.

The Northern Virginia doodle group was formed some time ago, and many of the dogs are now 14-15 years old.  Some may have gone to Rainbow Bridge.  There has been no activity in the group so I am reaching out to our newer members in case they are from Northwen Virginia area and asking them to please join the group so we can the  use it to stay in touch and not interrupt the whole Doodlekisses.

I am hoping to find some support from another doodle owner to ease me into grooming…
