So our new dood, Mojo, just loves the backyard.  I am perplexed because there is nothing interesting out there and it is cold and rainy.  My other dood, Sam, never wants to be out there -- gets his…Continue

Good- bye Mojo...

Posted on September 10, 2011 at 9:53am 13 Comments

So here is the updated story on our attempt at life with two doodles...

 

Our first doodle was brought home at 4 months of age...

sort of a second-hand / wouldn't sell right away pup from a breeder.  He is a medium ALD.  We got him Feb 2010.  One year later I was so enjoying this whole dog owning adventure that I really liked the idea of a second…

Wonderful first full day with Mojo :)

Posted on March 11, 2011 at 11:32pm 3 Comments

So it has now been 34 hours with Mojo in my care... he is settling in SO WELL. I am so impressed. I think taking on a pup the is close in age to Sammy was a great idea and I am so happy that the breeder was able to hear what I was looking for and come up with this wonderful guardian home match for us. I feel so lucky that we now have this second wonderful dog!



Hmmm... how do you add photos to blogs? Clearly I used to know how, but I don't see a way to do it here.



Anyway --… Continue

FIRST HAIR CUT!! I like it! :) Lots of pictures to share :)

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 7:37pm 41 Comments

So my son Quinn doesn't like the new cut... in his words, "He looks stupid" but I really do like it. It is much shorter than I asked for but I figured that just means I can wait a long time before we go back. I love that I can see his face now and I think it is a great summer cut (even if it isn't at all summer like around here yet... darn it!)



So here are a few before pics for fun:

Pretty sure that is a fleece coat! Sammy is 6 months old… Continue

Being accosted by my 2 year old son in his crate... the two year old LOVES Sammy dog... but I am pretty sure that Sammy simply tolerates my son Teagan and the love fest is not mutual at this point...…

What is your email?  I'm at home now, thanks!
At 12:25pm on February 24, 2011, Amy Murphy said…
Wierd, yes I just emailed you! :) Brie will be a mini, about 25 pounds, standing around 16 inches. And she has no problem playing with the bigger dogs. She has nothing wrong with her, sales right now are just not stellar. We're doing better this litter tho, we had pups left for 9 months last time! It's hard since we know we're not their family. I'll just continue to talk through email when I get home - I'm at work right now and will get home around 2 Denver time, (1 Washington time??) Thanks Jennifer!

She is still available, as a matter of fact I am sending a puppy to WA on March 7th. A boy that will go to Kadli Cottage as a breeder, he is flying to Seattle. Are you looking for a puppy?

Wow, Sammy looks so much like our Cassie!
At 7:47pm on April 6, 2010, Paul & Michele said…
hello! The breeder that my husband got her from said she would be about 40-45 lbs, however the last time we weighd her about 1 1/2 months ago she was at 65lbs. I'm kinda glad she got bigger, I really like big dogs. she is still a smaller than our choc. lab who's a male and weighs in over 100lbs. I saw your new pictures you posted I have a few of Madison in Molly's kennel when she was a puppy. I think all kids like to get in there. As far as trying to keep your little secret with Sammy on the couch GOOD LUCK Doodles forget NOTHING!! My guess is like the other person said your husband will be sitting there and Sammy will jump up in his lap like he's suppose to be there. Have a nice night!
