Profile Information

About Me:
My husband John and I are empty nesters once again. Our 26 yr old daughter is now an industrial engineer working for Toyota in Mississippi. Our oldest daughter, aged 28, is a veterinarian in Denver. Now it's just myself,DH and our almost 2 yr. old mini ALD Sheila who live at home here in IL with us. And she only weighs 9 lbs. 7 oz. Sheesh, I wanted a SMALLER dog this time but no kidding-- my human babies weighed 8lbs. 15 and 13 oz. respectively at birth. But just as with children, Sheila is small but rules the house and we love it that way. Well, sometimes. Now-- a playmate . . . . ????
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 have had 2 beloved yellow labs and a german shorthaired pointer.
I love DK because you guys are so fun loving AND helped me raise this little doodle with great advice and empathy.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I researched breeds for a long time. I love labs but don't feel like I'm strong enough to raise another one from a pup. It is time to downsize. Luckily, I happened upon DK, who was listed on my breeders website,and fell in love with YOUR labradoodles. I decided to joing the fun!!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
MY favorite things to do with Sheila are admire her, pet and brush her, take her shopping and in the car with me and okay, walking and more walking, but that is HER 2nd favorite thing to do. Her 1st favorite activity is zooming, she is really fast and caught a squirrels leg yesterday. Crap, I already have had one lab bitten by a captured squirrel. But a 9 lb. labradoodle?????
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
No one yet.
Favorite Doodle Products?
So far, bully sticks and Chris Christensen brush. Squeaky dog toys, small sized tennis balls, mini kong toy w/ string attached. Zukes mini treats.

April Showers Bring---Mud!!!

Hi from Sheila:

Hi all you doods.  Yeah, it's spring and I have spring fever badly.  I am so much friskier, and honestly, why is Mom so hyped up about my constant barking at everything that lives and breathes in the backyard?  These brown fuzzy things tease me so from the top of the fence.  They take alot of barking at bc I am only 9 lbs., so I have to puff myself up and really get after them.  Boy I am fast, tho, and I check all four corners of my wooden fenced in yard. Zooming…


Why was Sheila PINK all over???????

OWWIEEE Guys! I just had my second rotator cuff/labrum surgery done last Fri. It hurts so much more than the other one I had done six years ago. I'm older and dr. said joint just about worn out. He showed me all these pretty pictures of his work (he was so proud of himself) and I must have looked 1/2 dazed (yes, I did have to succomb to hydrocordone) so he said, basically you had bone removed, spurs removed and a shave and a haircut!! This is first time i've typed so forgive…


Decorating with Sheila

Posted on November 1, 2010 at 10:38pm 21 Comments

Yikes. Sheila managed to stash all this stuff on her favorite blanket while I was switching out decorations from Halloween to Thanksgiving. Just one month ago while getting out Haloween decs, all she did was follow me and watch carefully, but never touching anything. Now today, DH and I have found needlepointed ornaments, leaves and other sundry items all over the house. The scary part was I never caught her or saw her. She was the quietest, sneakiest thief I've ever seen. What is happening…


Now this is more like it!!

Yeah. After all the training, worrying, and early mornings, late nights. After all the no's , good girls, walk nicely, pennies in a mini diet pepsi can to stave off barking, barking, barking . . . Sheila finally "gets it" and has turned into the cute, wonderful dog I was always reading about on YOUR blogs. Not that we didn't always love her, we did, to pieces, but life is just so much nicer now that Sheila knows the rules (mostly) and we have our routines down pat. Man, for awhile there I… Continue

Hi DeeDee

Sorry for the late response! Latte does not shed ..yet. When Mochi was at this age he was going through coat change so he shed like crazy. I guess because they're from different parents so they're different. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Latte won't shed, but it's very unlikely since she's half golden.

I'm glad that Mochi and Latte are no more than 2 years old difference, I think that's why it's so easy for them to get along well.

Latte has a very sweet personality. The only thing I'd say she's not as good as her brother is the smartness. She learns everything much slower compared to Mochi when he was the same age. She also has narrower/longer snout because she's an American (vs. Mochi's an English), but still very cute. Other than that, she's VERY obedient and we never had to worry she gets into troubles. We used to puppy proof the house when Mochi was little but he still got into all kinds of troubles, but Latte just knows that those are not hers so she never touched or destroyed things. Latte also likes to cuddle with us whenever she finds a chance, I think her sweetness definitely came from her genes.

Let me know what litter you're going with, I'm excited for you! I think all Paw Pad doodles are super cute. I've saved some pictures from Latte's litter if you like me to send them to you so you get an idea how they look like at 7 weeks compared to the English litters (there are 2 litters on the Paw Pad page now:

Phoebe is from Carson and Jocelyn's litter.  She is about 20 lbs.  She sheds very little..usually just in the brush.  She has a fabulous personality...very sweet and extremely loving.  I will post a new picture of her.  We also have a labradoodle...which behaves more like a lab.  Phoebe is way more relaxed than he is....he never stops fetching a ball and has more of a type A personality! ha

Hi DeeDee

Latte's from Kelsey/Carson's litter. Mochi's from another breeder in California. Latte is still a cute little bully, she gets whatever she wants from Mochi's mouth and not scared of the big brother's growls. She also bites Mochi's face, ears, and legs, it's very fun to look at them play, Mochi's a very good brother that he growls a lot at her (while wagging tail) but loves her. Which litter are you waiting for?
