Profile Information

About Me:
I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my husband. We have a llama trekking business and do picnic hikes in the state park. You can read more about us at www.twincreeksllamas.com. We lost our 14 year old bearded collie at Thanksgiving, 2018, and felt the need of a new puppy to fill the hole in our hearts. Our goldendoodle, Bayley, has been such a wonderful companion, we decided we wanted to get another goldendoodle. In December, we got a 3 month old puppy we call Amber. At present time, we have Bayley, a 7 year old goldendoodle, Amber, the goldendoodle puppy, 5 llamas, 1 peacocks, and 5 chickens and 2 cats, Henry and Cornbread.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Goldendoodle, born 11/15/12, female, named Bayley
Goldendoodle, born 9/6/2018, female, named Amber
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
From the first time that I saw a doodle on TV several years ago, I knew I had to have one.They are the epitomy of cuteness. We've always had bearded collies for the last 20 years or so and after we lost our beardie at Christmas I decided it was time to make the switch. What a great decision. Bayley is so smart, and good natured. I am totaly in love.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Our favorite thing is to go on our early morning walks through the woods on our property. The best times are when there is still an early mist and the air is crisp and clear. Amber and Bayley love to chase, romp, and tumble.
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
Me, so far
Favorite Doodle Products?
Stazko shampoo and conditioner, Les Poochs green brush, comb with rotating teeth, Retriever Rolls Rawhide chews. Still experimenting with dog food to find a healthy diet that she enjoys. Food and treats must be made in USA.

Married

Protein losing enteropathy/lymphangiectasia

I have two dogs, a goldendoodle named Bayley and a beardie named Mayzie. This question is about Mayzie. She is 13 and has been dealing with protein losing enteropathy (PLE) for about 3 years. We have been managing it with science diet ID low fat. She has never liked it, but recently she has been refusing to eat more and more and losing weight. I’m hoping that Karen or someone here has some experience and can suggest a home cooked diet that is low fat and balanced.We have blood drawn every…See More

Donna, Do you have the Intercourse shirt?? I can't remember who has it, but I know Sue defaulted and forwarded it to the runner up. For some reason I thought that might be you. If so, do you think we can get it back in circulation? Thank you so much!

Hi Donna & Bayley! Love the bunny ears - just precious! Welcome to the GRAD group! Our group can be pretty laid back at times, but I was just talking to another doodle mom today about putting together some kind of GRAD informal outing soon.

Connor & Simon send happy doodle woofs and wags to Bayley! ()*o*()

Hope to meet you soon. :-)

OMD.  I had forgotten all about the Letterman.  What a treat to hear your music.  Reminds me of Jersey Boys.  Love your beach pictures.  What a great time.

Recipe for a Pupsicle

Posted on March 7, 2013 at 10:51am 16 Comments

To begin, start with one goldendoodle and add 20 inches of fresh, clean, new fallen snow.

Mix well for two minutes.

(Please accept my apologies for the orientation of this video. The Road Warrior left town with the camera, so I had to resort to my iphone for video. I held the phone wrong. Click on the little square at the bottom right of the video to view full screen, and hit escape to return.)…

Don't Get Buried Under Your Paperwork.....A Goldendoodle's First Christmas

Posted on December 26, 2012 at 6:57am 12 Comments

 

Having an overly energetic puppy can bring a lot of extra stress around the holidays when you are introducing a lot of new and enticing objects to the dog’s already over stimulating environment. I can imagine the puppy saying, “Wow, you’re bringing me a tree! I can climb on it, chew and tug on the branches, lift my leg on it, scratch my back on the lower limbs.…

The Spirit of Christmas

By Donna Parkman (me)

A parody of the poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” by Clement C. Moore

The Spirit of Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all we could see

Was the wreck of the presents unwrapped ‘neath the tree.

The stockings which hung from the chimney with care

Were missing, the mantel now empty and bare.

The tree, how it twinkled, was down on its side.

The star, not so merry, was cracked open wide.
