My name is Mandi Black and I live in Eatonton Georgia. My husband and I retired here about 2 years ago. We live on 900 acres so I love the outdoors and animals. I have English Pointers and a German Shorthair that we take bird hunting. I also have Toy Poodles that live in my house that are my babies and of course my Doodles, Auggie and Gabby they are the light of my life! My hobbies include hunting,shooting and walking my dogs. I love to do anything that includes my dogs!
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 2 Australian Labradoodles Auggie and Gabby. They are 6 1/2 and 7 mos old, they came to me from Sunset Hills in Australia. They have beautiful chocolate fleece coats and will be medium in size. I am very excited about breeding my pair some time in 2010.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I love Labs and Poodles and have had both as pets. The mix gives you the best of both worlds. They are very loving and sweet natured, and fun but calm, which I love. They are the BEST breed I have ever had, and they don't SHED!
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We walk a lot. I take them on trails on my property but I also like to walk in the city. That gives them people time and exposure to all elements of life.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I give them bathes but I have taken them once to Petsmart in conyers and they did a good job!
Favorite Doodle Products?
I do not have a favorite yet!
Do you have a website of your own? If so, share it here:
Hi Mandi!! I was wondering if you could send me some pictures of your doodles after being groomed by Tiffany at Petsmart. I was happy with Timbow's last cut, but there were some other things that bothered me about his old groomer. I would love some more info on Tiffany! :) Thanks!
Hi Mandi! I saw your comment on the ATL area group that you take your doodles to Petsmart in Kennesaw to be groomed? How much do your doodles weigh? I just had Timbow groomed at Dee's Grooming Gallery (who did a wonderful job), but it ended up being $130!!!!!!! Does your groomer follow your directions well? How do you normally have them cut? Sorry for all the questions, hope you're having a nice day!
I wanted to say how much I enjoyed meeting you at the romp. Auggie and
Gabby are adorable. Parris and I are doing agility at www.caninecapersagility.com. I think the agility training facility in Athens is called Lucky Dog Agility. Your profile picture is really nice.

Hi mandi, your dogs are beautiful! When you breed them in 2010 they are sure to produce a good-looking set of puppies. I am not in the breeding business, but do you already have people showing interest in their pups right now? That is going to be exciting I'm sure, but also a lot of work. Fulfilling work though. My husband tells me our bird season is over up here in Cincy. He did not participate this year though. Maybe come turkey season he'll get out there. He's hunted less and less ever since we have had children . Now that they are getting older, 14, 9, and 7, he might get out more. ~ Brenda
