Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
With a saddened heart I have to say that my beloved Jake passed away a few weeks ago. He was taken too soon from us for he was only nine. But those nine years he lived like a proud prince, He touched so many people and so many people loved him. And he knew it. I can take comfort knowing that he didn't suffer. Actually was healthy as could be. We think his heart just couldn't keep up with his body or he had a stroke. He was fine one minute and the next just went limp and fell off the couch.…Continue
Well here I go again. I had to make the hardest decision no pet owner ever wants to make. I thought was Lilly grieving when her brother Gus died unexpectedly 3 months ago. Sadly though it was more than that. She was diagnosed a couple weeks ago with an incurable brain tumor. Unfortunately she went down hill fast. My vet came to the house today and ended Lilly’s pain. My beautiful girl is going to be missed by many. She went from the nervous rescue when Linda, myself and Gus drove to Florida…Continue
It has taken me 4 months to be able to post on DK of Buddy's passing. It came quick, and I know he didn't want to go. He had things to do and Nosework trials planned. This was the only way I could handle him leaving me, no lingering illness, just fun and play all the way to the end of his splendid 13 years of Life. There will never be another dog like him in my life, and I cherish each and every memory I have of him, especially the sassy ones :) Thank you to all my friends for loving…Continue
Honey turned one year old on Wed. 1/9/2019! She is a mini Labradoodle and stands approx. 14" at her shoulders and is approx. 16" long and weights approx. 17.4 lbs. Her hair is still as soft as when she was a baby, hope it stays that way. She is full of energy, loves the outdoors - even the cold weather. She is very social with other dogs and people that she meets.
Sad but heartwarming story... Toby is a young Cocker Spaniel + Poodle mix who lost his leg as it was shattered beyond repair when Toby was hit by a car. Toby was our foster and we found a wonderful home for him...
Toby's mom has trained him as a therapy dog and they visit our local Children's Hospital as well as working with the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
His mom recounted that…Continue
Sadly my boy Gus died at the vet this past Monday. He got up that morning and seemed under the weather and wasn't interested in his breakfast. He was fine all weekend and I just thought he wasn't feeling good. I got a call at work from the dog walker saying Gus couldn't get up. I took him to the vet and they discovered his body temperature was dangerously low so they started to try warming him up and give him fluids through a IV. Initially they were thinking Addison's disease from the…Continue
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.
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...
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…Continue
